Zumo-iPhone-Pandora together question
« on: December 04, 2013, 03:28:14 PM »
Is it possible to stream Pandora from an iphone to a Zumo 550 and then via the headphone outlet to earbuds tied into the Zumo cradle?
Is it possible to stream Pandora from an iphone to a Zumo 550 and then via Bluetooth to a Cardo or Sena headset?

I could never get it to work. The zumo would only recognize it as a phone and not stream the music.

Same here, although using a Zump 665. I just rely on the XM for tunes & the phone for calling

I gave up and stopped using my Zumo for music (via onboard memory) or iPhone management (via bluetooth).  I gave up voice commands from my Zumo but I work fine with visual cues only.  My bluetooth just pairs to my phone anymore, which is good because I don't usually have my GPS mounted anyway.

I couldn't do that. I like the audio cues from the GPS, I like being able to keep my eyes on the road and other drivers. Not a big deal in remote areas, but add traffic, dark, rain/snow, road condition, pedestrians, etc, and I like the verbal cues.

I have my Zumo mounted above the clocks, so looking at my "distance till turn" is no more involved than glancing at my speedometer.

Likewise.  I'm so used to using the GPS for a speedo that I get lost looking for the actual speedometer if I leave the GPS home for some reason.

I do also, but speedometer reading (arm points up=80mph) is easier that reading the text, at least for me, although it is better now that I have bifocals. It's a little thing, but I like the option.
