    After uploading some poi's and maps my C530 only started in demo mode. I called Garmins 800 number where they advise you to use garmin.com. So I posted my problem on garmin.com where they after 2 e-mails told me to call the 800 number??? So I did and the guy at Garmin told me to reset the unit which I already had tried several times. Then he said my unit that I have had for 2-years was stolen and I had to send them proof of purchase. I sent them proof of purchase, and after that I never heard back from them.

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.

I was told that you turn off the unit, hold down the FIND key and turn it on while holding. Keep pressed for about 10sec. then release.

Unlock Code


When updating the maps, you need to be registered with Garmin. All the numbers came with the unit. If you turn over your Garmin 2720, there will be a number flanked by "*". That is your unit ID. When you register, you must provide that ID. From the site, you can update your maps and you shouldn't need the 25digit key. It's programmed into your unit.
