Question about Garmin zumo 550 GPS Receiver

Open Question

Unable to enter UK Postcode on my Zumo 550

I have a Zumo 550 loaded with Full Europena NT maps. However last night when I tried to find an address instead of prompting me for Address/Postcode it is asking for State/Province ,as if it thinks it has US maps loaded, which it hasn't. I have made no changes to any settings recently cannot see anything worng with the current settings.
Is there a quick way to resolve this (I am going on holiday in 3 hours), for example is choosing Restore settings form the tools menu likely to resolve this?

When I turn my Garmin 550 on it says loading maps, then goes to the select a local: It's frozen their on United States i push OK and nothing happens can not change the Locale it's frozen I tried...


Hi tkfranks331,

Press the power key and hold it if the screen of your Zumo is frozen. Keep holding the power key while pressing the key that has a plus symbol ("+") on it. This will reset your device and unfreeze the screen. You can also try calibrating the screen by pressing the power key for one full minute.

If this does not work, please follow these steps.

1. Update the internal disk software. Download and install WebUpdater on the computer. Please visit this link to download the WebUpdater.

2. Open WebUpdater on the computer.

3. Connect the Zumo 550 to the computer with its USB cable.

4. WebUpdater will automatically search for updates.

5. Follow the prompts to download any pertinent updates for the Zumo 550.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Formating the Zumo 550 GPS


Hi, I had a very similar problem with my Zumo 550. It turned out to be the SD card. I had an 8gb card full of MP3 tracks and the unit indexes them before working properly.

I removed the SD card all was well again

Garmin zumo 550 map update problem


  1. Make a backup of your Zumo by copying all the file to your computer.
  2. Using your PC and MapSource select all the maps then send them to a SD memory card need 2Gig or bigger card.
  3. Try to rename this file to gmapprom.img and replace the same named file in your zumo. (I haven't tried this personally, so if it fails, just replace this with your backup and all will be as it was.)
  4. If this fails, you can use the SD memory card in your zumo and it will use this map instead, but it will take longer to boot your zumo.

Zumo 550 Shut Downs


The problem is with maps overlaying. If you go to the little spanner and then press Map and press Map Info you should only see one Map info. If you have more than one then you need to connect to a computer and go to the Garmin drive. Remove the additional map this will be called suppmap1. Just move it for the time being to you computer just in case you need to put it back.
Another way to check is to press and hold the Volume key on the left whilst powering up. This bring all the info for the unit. Press Next then More on the screen the map name is the 6th one down.
Whatever Garmin tells you to do will not work. I sent mine back and they replaced it within 5 days. Service on that score is excellent.

How do you load maps? and are these Garmin maps. I try to keep the Zumo original and use an SD card for extra maps. Did you try this yet? And if you are using SD cards, try a different brand/quality. I had some lockups with crappy budget cards. Kingston, Sandisk and some other A brands work fine!
