Many of the models in the Garmin Zumo line of GPS receivers have a music player that you can use to playback your music collection. Zumo receivers, like most Garmin GPS units, only support MP3 files. Music is downloaded to the Zumo from a computer through a USB connection, and you can save the files to the Zumo's internal memory or to an installed microSD card.

Step 1

Connect the mini-USB end of the USB cable to the Garmin Zumo, and then plug the standard USB end of the cable into a USB port on your computer.

Step 2

Click the Windows Start button, select "Computer" and then double-click the "Garmin" drive. If you have a microSD card installed in the Zumo, you can select the microSD card drive instead of the Garmin drive.

Step 3

Double-click the "MP3" folder.

Step 4

Drag the music you want to store on the device from the computer to the MP3 window. Another option is to copy and paste the music in the folder. Right-click the MP3, select "Copy," right-click the MP3 window and select "Paste."

Step 5

Click the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the system tray and click "Eject Garmin." Unplug the Zumo when the "Safe to Remove Hardware" message appears.
