G'day
I had a similar problem of the unit turning off when the engine was started.
I simply replaced the battery as the one one boat was only registering about 11 amps. This unit requires amps to be over 12 to maintain the readings. This fixed my problem at least.
If you are not getting a reading on the transducer you may need to make some slight adjustment on the transducer itself. Is it installed correctly? There is a manaul with pictures detailing the exact method of installing the transducer. It is very important you get this right.
Good luck mate

No GPS signal


Ok Marilyn,

Thanks for the info. Your device has no dedicated reset button like some other Tom-Tom units, but it still can be reset.

To perform a reset, make sure that the unit has a fully charged battery. Charge for several hours if unsure - and make sure the charging light comes on (if it doesn't - it will probably need service) while connected.

Disconnect from charger.

Press the On/Off button to turn the unit on (if not already on) and allow it to start up as usual.

Press AND hold the On/Off button for up to 15 seconds or until the unit turns off.

The GPS should now be reset, and should work as expected when you next turn it on. Good luck!

OPEN PASWOK


I'll make an educated guess that you're asking how to get past the password in order to use this device.

See below:-

You have Garmin Lock activated on your nuvi: there are only two ways you can unlock it.

1. Enter the PIN code (but you clearly don't have it or you wouldn't be reading this).

2. Take the unit to the Security Location chosen when Garmin Lock was activated and the PIN code was chosen: it will then unlock without the PIN code and you can then either reset the PIN or disable Garmin Lock. The Security Location should not be the owner's home address, but many owners ignore this recommendation. Many owners choose their workplace or a close friend or relatives address for this purpose.

If neither option works then your unit is useless unless you send it to Garmin with proof of first purchase. Garmin charge for the service and if your maps are not up to date then it's really a waste of money as the investment would be better spent on a new unit with current mapping.

You may read advice advising you to use a secret menu to erase all user data. This is done by starting with the nuvi switched off and then pressing and holding the bottom right corner of the screen and then, whilst still pressing the bottom corner, turning the unit on. Please note that although this erases all previous user data, including maps, it does not bypass Garmin Lock. There is NO bypass for Garmin Lock except by taking the unit to the owner's security location; it would be a useless theft deterrent otherwise.

I hope that you manage to either fix your problem using my advice or at least can decide whether to abandon the unit and buy another.

My garmin nuvi 255w keeps freezing up at loading maps screen...i have tried the hard reset but that doesn't work, when i push on the bottom right corner and start the gps, it doesn't even make it...


There is a hard reset button under the sticker at the bottom of the unit. It is located directly under the check mark on the sticker. Once you get it going fully charge the unit then go to the Garmin website and register and update your 255w. I will attach the link to the Garmin Site. Thanks for using FixYa

My Garmin street pilot c550 has lost its voice, how do I get it back.


I am going to make some assumptions here. First, that the unit was working properly, giving voice directions, and now is not doing so. Second, that the volume wheel on the right side of the unit is set all the way up and you are not hearing any voice directions.

If those assumptions are correct, when you turn the unit on, press the wrench button at the bottom of the screen. Next, press the down arrow on the bottom right of the screen. Now press the "Volume" button. Make sure "Navigation" is at the level you desire (100% works well for me).

Again from the main screen, press the button marked "Locale." Next to the lip icon, make sure the correct voice (whichever you desire) is selected.

If this does not help, try resetting the unit. Remove the faceplate (there is an indentation under the top) and press the reset button on the right side of the unit. If this does not work, you can try a Master Reset, but be aware: IT WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES. To do a Master Reset, press and hold the bottom right of the screen while pressing the power button. Release both buttons when the unit resets. Let me know if this helps.

My gps said it can not start the navigation engin


This means that the unit cannot find the proper executable program to run the navigation engine. Either it has been accidentally deleted or removed.

Try to reinstall the software if resetting the unit is not working.

To reset the unit turn it off - hold your finger in the bottom right corner of the screen and keep it there whilst you turn it on. If that doesn't work, go to the Garmin Website to see if there's a firmware update that you need to download.

If that doesn't work the only option is to take it back to where you bought it and get it sent for repair.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer.

Touch screen not working properly


I'm not familiar with the Zumo family of GPS from Garmin, but if they are similar enough to the StreetPilot, you should be able to recalibrate the screen. In the StreetPilot series, to recalibrate you turn the unit off. Press and hold the bottom right of the screen and turn the unit on. Keep pressing the screen until the calibration information begins. Try this, see if it works on the Zumos, too.
