Is 600km a long enough test?

So the question is, was it the 2.60 update, or turning the fuel consumption off that did the trick ?

Would the 2.60 have done it on it's own ?

Good to hear of your success Jantan.

Spoke with Garmin earlier today and was told that "the latest release probably fixed the freezing problem".

Won't be riding for a few days but will post results when I have some.

After an horrible journey to the Isle of Mann with the Zumo freezing many times, it behaved absolutely fine for days of local rides with only two notable differences:

- one of the motorcycle mount spring loaded gold plated contacts was stuck down and I freed that
- the plastic bit between the contacts broke away (one of the recommended fixes in this thread)

Could the issue be related to handling multiple short power interruptions?

Returning the unit for exchange as previously arranged anyway, but I guess it's not much use as pointed out by others!

No, update wasn't applied as I was on the road, but again no freezing over 4 days of continuous use. Can't wait to see the thread die down after this update is applied by posters affected!

Let's just hope this really fixed it. Too many people have had too many problems with this unit.

hello,

Tested it yesterday on 700km.
Firmware version 2.6
Mode use : bike only

If you enable fuel consumption the GPS still freeze
If you disable fuel consumption it works flawlessly : zero freeze on 700 km !
Hope this help & and hope Garmin will fix that asap.

Ok. Gotcha. Maybe Garmin needs to hear from you on this?
