Question about Garmin StreetPilot c530 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Garmin c530 When I power up this unit, everything seems to be okay until it starts loading the maps, at that point, it just quits and the screen goes black. Is this likely a software issue that can be fixed by downloading the latest version?

    It powers up, says that it is loading the Maps, and then goes black!

    I updated to the current version of the software from the Garmin Updater and now all I get is the screen that says "No detailed maps found that support routing. The Streetpilot cannot be used without them." Any ideas. I need this GPS for a work trip tomorrow.

According to technical support, the "glitch" has been fixed with the latest web updater on the Garmin site. In the meantime, you will need to leave the unit unplugged for upto 48 hours to allow the battery die and the unit to get out of its "hang up". Once the battery is completely dead, plug the GPS into a computer (USB) and it should come back to life. Then do the update.

Hope this helps.

While plugged in, my Garmin c530 will shut down immediately after it says "loading maps". Why is this?


This problem only comes up when the battery is not properly charged, therefore not being able to power up the gps beyond the loading map page. Try to reset the unit by holding the power button for about 15 seconds, it will restart the unit, once it restarts it, check if it will get pass the loading map page. Then you try to back up the software on a computer, format it and restore the software back on the unit. If that does not help, then you carry out the following tests.

Try to charge the gps device for about 2 hours then try to turn it on. If it does not come on, then it means the battery did not get charged. That can be a problem from either the battery or the charger or the charging port.

First test the battery by fixing it in another gps and charging it for about 2 hours then turn it on. If it powers on the gps, then it means the battery is okay, but if it does not turn it on, then it means the battery is weak and cannot hold a charge and the solution is for you to replace the battery.

Next you test the charger by trying it out on another gps device, if it turns it on, then it means the charger is intact but if it does not turn it on, then the fault is from the charger.

Finally, test the gps itself by trying to charge in by connecting it to the computer using the USB cable, then you turn it on, if it does not come on, then it means there is a problem with the connection port or there is an internal problem or something with the unit.

Hope this advice was useful to you.

I have a garmin street pilot c530 after i power it up and agree to the disclaimer the screen reads as follows no deailed maps found that support routing street pilot cannot be used without them the unit...


I just purchased my c530 a couple of days ago and had been loving it. I had added some custom POI's to my sd card using POI loader version 2.4.0 and that had worked fine. Then the other day I tried to load some new custom POI's, but POI loader got hung up and froze. After disconnecting the c530, I restarted it. After it started, a screen came up that said "No detailed maps found that support routing. The Streetpilot cannot be used without them." I contacted garmin, here is the site for contact info since I am unsure where you are. http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/supportcontactand the tech support at Garmin. They said that somehow the files on my c530 must have gotten corrupted. The person I talked to at Garmin was very friendly and walked me through several things trying to get my unit to work. He was very apologetic and said that this should not have happened. He told me I would have to return it and get a replacement. Sorry Hope this helped.

whne you plug it in through the usb cable the unit is charging but is waiting for you to do something to the software of load something like mp3s. Why are you not using the 12V cable in your vehicle to keep the battery charged.

Garmin Nuvi 250W stuck on "Loading Maps..." screen. I know it wasn't a clever thing to do, but I dragged a file (a map i think) into the Nuvi's internal memory via Windows Explorer. Now every PC i have...


Try the reset, and if that fails, download the web updater from the garmin site and try that route.


Master reset will erase all way points or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.
  1. Start with the unit OFF and unplugged from power
  2. Touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen with an index finger or the eraser end of a pencil
  3. Continue touching and holding the lower right hand corner of the screen then power the unit ON
  4. Release the power button when the device powers ON
    • You will see a new message: Do you really want to erase all user data?
  5. Remove your finger from the touchscreen when this message displays
  6. Touch Yes

Garmin c530 powers up breifly then shuts down


The problem is with the battery, DC will not fully charge the battery to its required capicty to work. You need an AC charger and to charge it fully ( 10 hrs Max) and then try it. It needs a lot of power to drive the screen and connect to satellites.
Invest in an AC charger and all should work properly

Deleted memory for garmin c530


Go to Garmin and download and install Garmin Express, Plug your GPS into your PC. The GPS should power on and Garmin Express should identify it and tell you of any updates. This would allow your to install new maps. You did not delete your internal memory, you deleted your internal maps. Moving the maps from internal to external memory cannot be done on your PC and have them work. They have to be installed on the SD card via Garmin Express. https://support.garmin.com/faqSearch/en-US/faq/content/b17m7lCO3R4UKUAt8x67J7

There is a Master Reset procedure, but you would lose all of your favorites if you did it. To do a Master Reset, turn the unit off. Press and hold the on button and the bottom right of the screen at the same time. Release the on button when the unit comes on and asks if you want to do a Master Reset. Again, this will ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES.
