Can I enter GPS coordinates into a gamin zumo 550

Turn on Zumo. Select WHERE TO. Depress ARROW DOWN beneath ROUTES icon. There, revealed, are 5 additional icons, one of which is COORDINATES. There are more different choices of ways to enter coordinates than you're likely to learn what they are in a lifetime.

Happy motorcycling. Keep the shiny side up.

How to restore garmin nuvi 550 memory to original. i accidently loaded a map to the gps memory and not the memory card. I tried a factory reset but some files are still there and the map does not work.

It's not possible to undo a map install. However you should be able to re-download the original map from the Garmin website. Go to and log into myGarmin. Click on the myMaps t tab. There you will see the maps you have on your satnav. Under the one you want to install to the satnav click on "Details" which should be in blue writing. This will bring you to a page where you should be able to download it again.

When you have downloaded the first map download the second to your computer. When the website shows that it has found your satnav it will show it with a drop down arrow. Click the drop-down arrow and select download to computer.

After it's downloaded click the windows start button and you will find a garmin icon in your list of programs. Click on garmin and you'll see an icon called MAPINSTALL. Click on this.

When you try to install the map using mapinstall it will again try to install it to your satnav. When your satnav is detected it will again show it with a drop-down arrow. Click this and select your memory card. The map will then be installed to your memory card.

You should be able to use 2GB SD cards. Cards larger than 2GB are actually SDHC cards and will not work with this camera.

Error message

The WGPX-550 doesn't support 2GB card. You can have Canada on a separate card (512MB will be big enough) and Canada includes the bordering US states
