File deletion problem from Garmin c550

Recently, I found out that audio files (imported music) on my Garmin c550 GPS device are impossible to delete since directory with files is untraceable. I can still choose and play music on device itself, but when connected to PC with USB cable it shows only one folder K:\GARMIN and no subfolder with audio files. Though, I can see all files and _P3 folder while running undelete program, but still I can’t delete them. If my explanation makes sense, please advise.

If your undelete program lets you undelete the _P3 folder, do it. Then try renaming it to MP3. See if this helps. This is the folder in which all of your music is stored. If it allows you to change the folder name, you should now see (and be able to delete) all of your music files stored on the GPS.

Geocache list doesn't show on gps


Basecamp is displaying the contents of the gpx file. This means you've correctly imported the gpx file into Basecamp.

A copy of the gpx file needs to be separately saved into the "GARMIN/GPX" folder on your GPS via USB and your computer. (Note: I believe your Oregon has the same file structure as my Garmin Montana).

On startup, your GPS will read the new data and display the caches.

You will have to send it to Garmin with your original receipt and they can reload the maps your unit came with. There may be a charge for this service.

Garmin C550 Locked


Nope. Take the unit back to your security location which you sent when you first got the GPS. Without knowing the PIN or security location, you will not be able to unlock the unit. You will have to send it in to Garmin to be unlocked, and you will have to include your receipt from an authorized dealer.

Have you tried this?

You can try this step that I found. If you tried loading other mapas try this.

You will need to erase a file from the units memory. Connect your GPS system to your computer; go to start then ‘My Computer’, and double click on your device file (mass storage system), there you will see a folder named ‘Garmin’.
In this folder are several different files, look for file named gmapsupp.img. Right hand click on this file and delete as this file is causing the maps to lock.

No MP3 icon in C550


If you loaded new files, they are probably not in MP3 format. Right click and check. I had the same issue and when I saved .mp3 files the icon appeared again.

MP3 Player icon not even coming on screen


Hold a finger on the upper right corner of the screen while powering up the unit. This should do a master reset.

If that doesn't work, go here to download an update.
