How to update maps on gps

If you have lifetime maps, download Garmin Express for Windows or Mac, make sure GPS is fully charged, connect to computer. Let Garmin Express find GPS, do a complete backup, and then do a most recent map update. If you do not have lifetime maps you will have to purchase new maps from Garmin.

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. 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.

How do you change lithium ion battery in garmin streetpilot c530

The unit can be opened by removing the frame around the screen. However if you are still under warranty you will void it. The battery is not an easily replaceable one since it is soldered into the unit but if you are hany with a soldering iron it is fairly straightforward. However you have to find the correct battery which you can do with an online search.

The screen on my Garmin Street Pilot C340 is frozen

I read the manual. There is a reset button underneath the plastic cover surrounding the screen (pry off w/ your thumb) -- push the reset if the power can't be turned off otherwise.

Help me unlock my gps i do not remember my pin # all i can remember is there is 6 # in the pin please help me

Take it back to the 'secure location' as indicated in your service manual. It will automatically unlock when it gets a full satellite signal. You have to enter the PIN number twice when setting up the unit. You should always use a number which is familiar to you so you can remember it. If you can't remember it, and if your secure location doesn't unlock the unit, you will need to send the unit to Garmin to unlock it. You will need your receipt for Garmin to unlock the unit.

Update propblem....

I just got this from the Garmin support guys. You won't believe how easy. From the main menu, click on the wrench, then map info. That should tell you what version of the map your Garmin is using. There's a little box in the upper left corner. If it's not checked, just touch it and the check should appear. Hold down the back button till you are at the main screen. Voi la! He also recommended sitting the Garmin outside and turned on and then not moving it for about 40 minutes. I hope it's that easy for you!

I fixed my C530 on my own. Garmin support will not give you this solution.
I attached the GPS to the computer with the usb cable. I used the file explorer in windows to view the file system on the GPS. I sorted the files by date. Then I moved the files that had a newer date than the last time the GPS worked, to an backup folder on my computer in case I need to restore the files to the GPS again. I than disconnected the GPS from the computer and restarted the GPS. The GPS works perfect now and doesn't enter the demo mode any longer.
