    Default Please help me unbrick my Zumo660's

    My wife and myself are travelling around the world with motorcycles. We are in Mexico and both our Zumo's just decided to die on us. We use them as our dash and are pretty much in trouble if we don't have them to navigate.
    I have done some searches and it seems possible to unbrick them. It seems it's a software problem. But I have no idea how to go about it as it's quite technical in nature and the Cure3 seems like voodoo stuff.

    I loaded OSM Mexico maps 2 months ago and they were okay, then few days ago my unit just died and continuously switched on and off only getting to loading the maps then OFF.
    Then I uploaded a track I created on Google maps and converted it to .gpx and both started with their nonsense. So far so now both can only power up and show the splash screen and then switch off by itself, they turn ON again and while it shows loading maps dies again. I tried the hard reset but neither wants to go past the choose country and then switch off. I can't even get them to talk to the laptop.

    It also seems because I am using a Apple mac and not windows that might also be part of the problem.

    Any advice?

    Hello,
    as you exactly know what bricked your zumo you have two options to unbrick it:
    1)[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    2)[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    To use Updater.exe in preboot mode read carefully:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    If you choose Kunix cure:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] it will be ok for zumo too.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Post again if you need further help.

    PS you need Windows

    Catymag, thanks so much for the reply. I will give it a go and report back. I am not really sure what the people mena when they talk about "flash"and such terminology but will try.

    Is it best to try solve this from a Windows operating system or can I use my Apple mac?

    Flashing means loading the firmware into your device.
    You absolutely need Windows, kunix's cure and Updater.exe cannot run on your Mac. Virtual Windows would have problems too with Updater.exe.
    Good luck!

    Goodness okay, I will have to find a proper Windows machine. I have Parallels and Windows on my Mac but as you say won't work.

    Thanks in advance
