Facing the GPS system, remove the front cover with your nail or something sharp and under it you will find a reset button. If needed, refer to page 30 in the manual (see website below) for pictures:

Your only other option is to return the unit to Garmin. Be aware, however, if you are not the owner of record, they will not return the GPS unit to you.

I have a street pilot c550 and it will not boot up. It gets to where it says loading maps then it goes black

I found the resolution on this site. I removed the face of the unit and hit the reset button on the right side of the unit. I put the faceplate back on. I connected the unit to my laptop via USB port. I downloaded the software for the c5550 from the Garmin site. I installed the base software and the upgrades. I left it connected to the laptop for a few hours to fully charge. I then disconnected it from the laptop and hit the red button to turn the unit on. I received a software update message, when that was done, the unit completely booted up.

Entering street names

The Garmin may not recognize the street name you are entering due to a scroll error. When you type, it constantly looks up streets beginning with the letters you already entered. If you happen to hit a wrong letter, it automatically errors out. Have you updated the unit recently? If not try that first.

Load USB drivers to PC (if not done already), connect Garmin, turn Garmin on, run webupdater, follow on screen prompts.

Street pilot c510

You need to have the C510 reset. Their should be a little hole on the front/back/side, stick a pin in it, install the updated, and you will be all set.
