Question about Garmin zumo 550 GPS Receiver
Demo? or do you mean it simulates the route?
Upon completion of a route calculation it asks if you want to simulate the trip. Just select NO. Or is there an SD card in the zumo with a demo program on it?

If you can plug the c550 into your computer and pull it up as a drive, you should see a "Demo" folder. Delete this folder, and it MAY fix your unit. If your computer will not see the unit, you will need to send it in for repair. FYI, I am an employee at Garmin, and we always go out of our way to help in any way we can without sending it in for repair. Garmin gives us more latitude to help the customer than any other company I've ever worked for. We don't do anything "just for more money" We don't work on commission, we get nothing out of making the customer pay for a repair.

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.

Try a hard reset....with power off hold enter button and page button while turning on unit ....this should reset to factory setup, should now be able to switch out of demo mode
