Perhaps this should be in the EOE forum but we'll start here:
Should I be able to get the music stored on my Droid to play through the 550?
I know they are paired since the Zumo tells me there is a call incoming.
I've got headphones wired to the Zumo not bluetoothed.
TIA

Is the gas tank half empty or half full?

If you open up your music app on the phone and start playing something, does the phone play out of its speaker?

No.


Bummer, guess that means another device. I'm assuming it is a Zumo issue?

Yes, it is a Zumo issue because it does not implement AD2P as a receiver.

Read about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluetooth

Although I may not have it exactly right, this should help you understand why.

BT uses a "profile" to define the protocol between two devices. Your Droid connects to the Zumo using the Hands Free Profile (HFP). Your phone does not usually transmit music using that profile, so the zumo will never get to process the music. You might be able to find a music app that can do this, but it would be monaural and you wouldn't have AVRCP (the ability to pause/skip/etc).

Ideally, the Zumo would be both the receiver and transmitter of AD2P (stereo music) and AVRCP. This would allow it to receive the stereo music from your phone and re-transmit it to your headset (or wired earphones). Unfortunately the Zumo 550 is not designed to work this way (I don't know if the 660/665 is).

Thanks for the info. That is unfortunate but not the end of the world. I will work on getting my tunes on the Zumo or getting a mixing device.

The 550 will not transmit bluetooth in stereo, only mono. If you want stereo music you need to connect via hardwire or use another bluetooth source to your headset for music.
