Resetting or trying to recalibrate the touchscreen does not work for this problem. Every time I try to reset or recalibrate, the Map Update Notice immediately pops up and I have not found a way to bypass this screen. I think this may be a glitch programmed by Garmin to force users to buy an upgrade after a couple of years.

Try a soft reset:

To reset the Garmin device, turn off the device by pressing the power button on the top of the device. When the unit is off, press your finger to the bottom right corner of the screen and continue holding while pressing the power button. A prompt will appear on the screen confirming data reset. Click Yes.

If that doesn't work, try a factory reset:

Tip

Garmin GPS - stuck , not updating, no signal problems, update maps


If your Garmin GPS is stuck on a loading screen, not updating properly, not acquiring a signal or having other quirky problems. You can follow the steps below to help resolve some of these issues.

In order to update the firmware on your Garmin GPS device you will need a USB cable and Garmin's WebUpdater software. You can find the update software from the following link below,

Click here for update software

Click here for map updates

To update your firmware through the WebUpdater software, you want to turn off your GPS device, plug it into your computer. Run the WebUpdater software then turn on your device. If the software does not list your GPS then click the "Find Device" button.

Updating the maps can resolve issues with missing streets, or the unit being off entirely(roads are updated throughout the world on a constant basis). Keeping your software up to date is always recommended.

Firmware upgrades will help resolve issues in the operating software, and may even help GPS problems you are experiencing. If not, you can perform a soft reset. As a last resort, you will want to perform a hard reset below.

Perform a hard/soft reset
A hard reset will reset the device back to factory defaults. This will also delete any of your personal favorites saved on the device.

Soft Reset

Slide the power button to the left and hold in this position for 8 seconds. Push the switch to the right to power the GPS back on.


Hard Reset
Turn the unit off. Press and hold the bottom right of the GPS screen. Continue to hold while powering on the GPS. you should now have a prompt asking you to erase all data. Select Yes. Afterwards, it is recommended that you leave the GPS outside somewhere safe to acquire a GPS signal. Once this is done, you can update the GPS using the update steps described at the beginning of this article.

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.

You probably need to update the unit at their website. In the meantime, you can try the reset button There is one, but it's kind of stealth - it's on the angled edge of the bottom of the device, in a square "hole". Pressing the corner of the screen resets user data only, not the actual device. Good luck!

No power to my ICN 520


Have you tried the reset hole? make sure there is nothing stuck in there that could be pressing on the button. When you press and hold the reset button the screen stays blank.

If you press the reset button does the unit turn on? Mine turns on when I press the reset button even after I turn the battery off then back on.

Hope this suggestion might help you restore functionality.
