Question about Garmin StreetPilot c530 GPS Receiver
How do you get it out of the demo mode?
I downloaded garmin webupdater for my street pilot 2720 (mac version). After trying to update the garmin software, the message on the computer said update failed. My garmin now says system missing and is inoperable. Any help out there?

I didn't know I could access the Garmin File System... However the fix for me was simply moving the Demo Directory off the unit. (I put it on my PC just incase) The Unit works GREAT!!!!

I fixed my C530 on my own. Garmin support will not give you this solution.
I attached the GPS to the computer with the usb cable. I used the file explorer in windows to view the file system on the GPS. I sorted the files by date. Then I moved the files that had a newer date than the last time the GPS worked, to an backup folder on my computer in case I need to restore the files to the GPS again. I than disconnected the GPS from the computer and restarted the GPS. The GPS works perfect now and doesn't enter the demo mode any longer.
