Hi Don,

 

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?

Unable to see maps it is asking for pin wich I dont have. Purchased used garmin c550 at swap meet


The pin that it is asking for is a security pin that can not be reset. It is to prevent a stolen GPS from being used. If the person you purchased it from can not get you the pin then you must contact Garmin and they will have the information on file if the unit was registered. You most likely will have to send the unit back to Garmin to be reset. I have attached the link to Garmin. Thanks for using FixYa

Forgotten my pin number for garmin and my secret location. how can i access/reset it please?


Welcome to FixYa!

Here's how to reset Garmin Street Pilot C550:

1. Remove the front plate of the c550 by sliding your finger under the groove in the plate below the Garmin mark on the plate.

2. Push the now-exposed reset button. The reset button is located on the same side of the c550 as the power cable connector.

3. Plug the c550 into an external power source to restart the c550 after you have reset it. The factory default settings will be restored.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have a great day.

C550 wont take password


The only way to unlock a PIN locked Garmin is to enter the correct PIN number or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered. Even a Master Reset will not change these settings. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.

How do I unlock a Garmin c550? i bought garmin device at black market. after 1 month, it's automacally locked, ask me typing pin code. i'm trying so many times and unlocked. after that it was locked...


Your first problem was purchasing the unit the way you did. If you purchased it legitimately, you would not have this issue. Your only solutions are to enter the correct PIN number, take the unit to where the PIN was set, or send the unit back to Garmin.
