Http://www.tramsoft.ch/downloads/garmin/streetpilot-c550_owners-manual.pdf page 29 & page 30 discuss the 2 options for reset/restore.. one clears all saved data (i.e. favorites) & the other resets the system. I'd also suggest connecting the usb cord to ur pc & GPS , then use the update software, This can resolve any issues you may be experiencing.

Forgotten my pin number for garmin and my secret location. how can i access/reset it please?


Welcome to FixYa!

Here's how to reset Garmin Street Pilot C550:

1. Remove the front plate of the c550 by sliding your finger under the groove in the plate below the Garmin mark on the plate.

2. Push the now-exposed reset button. The reset button is located on the same side of the c550 as the power cable connector.

3. Plug the c550 into an external power source to restart the c550 after you have reset it. The factory default settings will be restored.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have a great day.

GARMIN C550


Hi Don,

 

You probably just need to find the reciept where you bought the C550.  Sounds like Garmin is protecting its customers when they say $300.  This is most unfortunate thing to happen to you.  Is the Garmin $300 issue as I thought and related to you not having the registration code or Reciept?

Will not turn on


It is possible that the internal battery has discharged, and is unable to recharge due to a blown fuse inside the cigar lighter plug or a blown fuse in the car's fuse block for the cigar lighter outlet.

  1. Unscrew and remove the silver or black, round end piece.

  3. Remove the fuse (glass and sliver cylinder) and replace with a new fuse.
  4. Ensure that the silver tip is placed in the end piece. Screw on the end piece.

Consult your car's owner's manual for locating the fuse block in the car. Both fuses must be good.

If you're unable to power up the c500 outside of the car (running on internal battery) your c550's internal battery may no longer be able to accept a charge. This will require a battery replacement - or use with a cigar adapter only. You may have to return the GPS to Garmin for a battery replacement - but there are some third party battery providers for some Garmin GPS units. If one is available for the c550, you may save enough money to make going the third party route worthwhile.

Please rate this replay if helpful - good luck!

My Garmin c550 just stopped working today. It is about 3 yrs old. If it is a battery, how can I get it replaced? I'm in Orlando, Fl


Mine did the same. Wouldn't power on. The manual says if it doesnt power on when plugged into a power source, reset it.
There is a groove on the faceplate under the Garmin logo. place your thumbnail there and gently pry off the face plate. Look for the reset button on the right side, press it.
The unit should power on for normal use.

If you need to re-set it often, update the system software.

Dead Garmin c550


had same exact problem. my unit would come on for a minute and then go black. if you take the silver ring around the face you will see the four screws to take the unit apart if you do have to replace the battery. however first try hitting the reset button on the right side of the unit. remember the cover needs to be off. i hit the reset and my unit powered on with no problems

Forgot pin number


The only way to unlock a PIN locked Garmin is to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.

Remove the front faceplate, (there is an indentation under the word Garmin on the faceplate that you can use to lift it with your finger nail). After removing the faceplate you will see a reset button on the right side. Press the reset and then try to turn the Garmin on.
