I thought everyone should know the QZ (and some of the other Cardo products) has a known issue that will not allow it to play MP3's from a Garmin Zumo. Below is the text received from Cardo:
"Thank you for contacting the Cardo Systems Support Center.
We are aware of stereo audio compatibility issues that currently exist between the Zumo and some scala rider products. Our software development team is currently investigating this issue in order to determine if this is something that can be resolved on our end or if an update would need to come from Garmin for their GPS device to resolve the issue. I regret to inform you that I do not have an expected date of resolution at this time but this is definitely something that is currently under investigation. Your patience is appreciated.
Please feel free to contact us if we can assist you with any other questions."
Considering other vendors work with the Zumo, I find it hard to believe it is a bug in the Zumo.
Just thought everyone should know.
No, I do not recommend this product.
