Question about Garmin StreetPilot c550 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

My garmin Street Pilot just went dead on me.

I took apart the unit to find the Lithium battery. However I saw nothing that looked like a battery. There was this long tube like piece that went from both ends of the speakers. this tube like thing is screwed down. is this the battery? I thought that these batteries were metal batteries. If not can anyone show what the battery looks like for this unit. Normally I don't get extended service plans & since I didn't get one I'm reall ********** about it

Thank you for your help in advance

I got back into my vehicle today to go get my mom at the airport. I plugged the unit In & It worked. I suspect that It is the battery. After I shut off the engine I got the message that says do you want to still operate on battery power. I clicked ok but it said low battery. So now I have it charging by using my portable air compressor. So hopefully It doesn't die on me for at least another few years or if It does then It's time to upgrade to the Nuvii

Thanks for the people that replied to my question.

How do you change lithium ion battery in garmin streetpilot c530


The unit can be opened by removing the frame around the screen. However if you are still under warranty you will void it. The battery is not an easily replaceable one since it is soldered into the unit but if you are hany with a soldering iron it is fairly straightforward. However you have to find the correct battery which you can do with an online search.

My StreetPilot C330 can't turn on My gps stay close, i can't use it anymore


Your 'custom' lithium battery died. You can try getting a replacement from the internet, but be aware that the battery is not a simple 'plug-n-play'. There are leads that need to be soldered. Then there's the matter of re-initializing the unit. It may or may not work when you do a system reset.

Your best bet is to 'bite-the-bullet' and contact Garmin tech support for an RMA. They'll charge $79 to repair/replace this model.

This situation is common among GPS manufacturers on lower-end units. Best Buy showed me that there are some new units out there (over $500 ) that do have disposable batteries where its easy to change.

Help me unlock my gps i do not remember my pin # all i can remember is there is 6 # in the pin please help me


Take it back to the 'secure location' as indicated in your service manual. It will automatically unlock when it gets a full satellite signal. You have to enter the PIN number twice when setting up the unit. You should always use a number which is familiar to you so you can remember it. If you can't remember it, and if your secure location doesn't unlock the unit, you will need to send the unit to Garmin to unlock it. You will need your receipt for Garmin to unlock the unit.

I followed the instructions of the Online manual for the Garmin Street Pilot c-340, I removed the faceplate of the Street Pilot and then using my thumb pressed down on the reset button. I then pressed the power on button on the side of the device- the screen lit up, I then plugged one end of the USB cable into my computer and the other end into the device. The information on the screen of the device indicated the Lithium Battery was charging properly.
