    Need to know how i update the maps card for it

    The latest version of Garmin Express provides the ability to install a map update directly to an SD card.
    The SD card installation option will only appear when updating a compatible device that does not have sufficient internal memory for the largest allowable map region. When using the SD card installation option, critical files are loaded to the SD card so it must remain in the device after the update to ensure full functionality. For the largest size SD card a device can use, refer to: What is the largest size Secure Digital (SD) card that an automotive device can accept?
    The SD card support during the map update will only function with up-to-date software. It may be necessary to update the device's software with Garmin Express prior to updating the maps. These devices do not support the SD card option:
    • Nissan 700
    • nuvi 295
    • nuvi 300 series
    • nuvi 500 series
    • nuvi 600 series
    • nuvi 800 series
    • nuvi 805 series
    • nuvi 5000
    • StreetPilot series
    • zumo 450
    • zumo 550
    • zumo 665
    For devices that do not support using the SD card with the map update application, any maps that do not fit in the internal memory can be installed to the SD card manually, using these instructions:

    When I turn my Garmin 550 on it says loading maps, then goes to the select a local: It's frozen their on United States i push OK and nothing happens can not change the Locale it's frozen I tried...

    Hi tkfranks331,

    Press the power key and hold it if the screen of your Zumo is frozen. Keep holding the power key while pressing the key that has a plus symbol ("+") on it. This will reset your device and unfreeze the screen. You can also try calibrating the screen by pressing the power key for one full minute.

    If this does not work, please follow these steps.

    1. Update the internal disk software. Download and install WebUpdater on the computer. Please visit this link to download the WebUpdater.

    2. Open WebUpdater on the computer.

    3. Connect the Zumo 550 to the computer with its USB cable.

    4. WebUpdater will automatically search for updates.

    5. Follow the prompts to download any pertinent updates for the Zumo 550.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank you for using FixYa.

    HI I have Zumo 550 when I first switch it it comes up with can't maps press OK you press OK then starts to work but starts at 1am on the clock and in night time mode after awhile it goes to the right time...

    If your zumo 400 or 500 series will not power on, or performs strangely after powering up, follow the steps (described on the Garmin website) below to perform a soft reset:
    1. Connect the zumo to a power source such as a computer or AC outlet
    2. Hold the zoom (+) and ON buttons at the same time for five seconds
    3. If this does not restore power, remove the battery for five seconds
    4. Place the battery back in the zumo
    The zumo will now power on. Because the battery may deplete while the zumo is locked up, it is ideal to leave the zumo connected to power to allow it time to charge.
    Once the battery has charged, follow the steps on the Garmin site to update the operating software in the zumo. (just copy this link to get there{8576ba20-e948-11dc-d6fc-000000000000} )

    Good luck,

    Need location for reset button

    First try holding down the reset button for 3 seconds, then connecting the unit to a power source using the power cable.

    If that doesn't work, try a "master reset." With the unit off, press and hold the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Keep holding this and turn the unit on. Hold the corner down for 10 more seconds and the unit should ask for confirmation you want to wipe its data.

    The garmin is on but frozen

    Look near the SN # and press the reset button.


    with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.
