    I have a Palm Treo 755p and when I connect to the Garmin C550 via bluetooth the phone locks up after first call and I have to remove the battery from the phone to get it to function again. Is there a fix or a software update for the Garmin device that addresses this issue?

Try connecting from the GPS menu. You may have to set the phone to be able to be found temporarily. Go to the unit's Bluetooth menu, make sure it is Enabled and click Add. It should look for your phone, and if it finds it, the phone should ask you to enter the unit's code. See if this works.

    If it's the phone that's locking up, you might be better off speaking to Motorola. They may have some idea what's causing that. It is possible that your phone is not compatible with the C550.

Place your thumb nail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the bezel.

Gently pull off the faceplate.

Press the reset button.

If it still asks for a code and you don't have it, it should ask you to drive to a secret location to unlock the device. If you don't know the location, the only other option you have is to send the unit to Garmin to be unlocked. You can also try to call Garmin with the serial number and see if they can do something less annoying to unlock it.

Unlock c510

Take the unit to where your nephew was playing with it, and it will automatically unlock. Otherwise, you'll need to send it in to Garmin with the receipt from an authorized dealer.

Under the settings for usb connection type change the setting to memory card connection. This is subject to having a memory card (Micro sd) installed. Otherwise you may have to install motorola phone software into your computer and use this to update files on your phone.
