Question about Garmin StreetPilot c550 GPS Receiver
Just quit working. Will not come on. Any ideas of problem and how much to repair?
I had the same problem. The GPS was working one day and not the next. I'm an engineer and decided to "look under the hood". My warranty is out and I don't recommend you do this. What I found was a lousy hardware design. Turns out the "ribbon" connector from the battery to the "mother board" was TAPED in place. This is a lousy design and will fail given if the device is left in the car where heat can build up and loosen the tape or over time the tape will fail, either way it is not built to be robust. Bottom line, it needs to be returned to the factory to be fixed. GARMIN shame on you after we spend hundereds of dollars on your products.
