Question about Garmin StreetPilot c550 GPS Receiver
I bought this Garmin c550 on ebay and everything worked for a couple of days then I go in my truck to turn it on and it wouldn't come on anymore the screen is black and nothing seems to make anything flash or do anything.
Check the 12v power cord to make sure its still powering/charging the unit. Usually they have a light on them that will show if its receiving power or not. You can also unscrew the tip of those things (on most cables) and check the fuse to see if its blown. If its not lighting up and the fuse on the cable is ok check the one in your truck to see if it needs replacing.
If the cable is not the issue then the GPS is probably dead. If its not under warranty the flat rate repair fee from Garmin is $200

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?
