If after power-up the screen lights up but you can’t do anything, remove the front faceplate and press the reset button on the right. The front faceplate is removed via a small indentation under the GARMIN logo at the top of the screen. It will pull off with your finger. No tools are needed. The faceplate is gray/silver-ish and not the black part (which is the body).

I forgot my pin code for GARMIN STREETPILOT c510, how to start


Hello,

Going back to the security location will unlock the unit but in order to reset the pin code, the original pin code must be input.
To unlock the unit, it must be sent back to Garmin.

When i switch on my garmin c510 it tells me i cant unlock maps how do i solve this problem


Details on unlocking maps for Garmin Nuvi satnavs are at http://www.fixya.com/support/r6197735-no_detailed_maps_found_support_routing
StreetPilot satnavs probably use the same method. You may need to skip to paragraph 2 and start from there.

My Garmin gps is frozen on a screen telling me there are no maps found. I tried to reset it and put a memory card in it but nothing worked so far. Any ideas?


You're missing the file gmapprom.img on your C510 unit (possibly a failed update?).

Unless you have a backup it's contact Garmin I expect (maybe try getting a copy off someone but possible the file is locked to the unit as I have tried swapping SD cards containing maps in the past between units and no joy)..

Frozen Garmin C510


remove the faceplate, there will be a little notch at the top where the Garmin logo is. On the right side under the faceplate you will see a reset botton. Press the button and the unit will power off/reset.

No detailed maps found that support routing the streetpilot cannont be used without them garmin streetpilot c510


You're unit is probably missing the gmapprom.img file (failed update maybe?).

Try contacting Garmin - if you've got registered maps they may send you another copy (although big file - 100+MB)
