Safe mode only prevents you from using the complicated while you're in motion.

Garmin lock prevents people from using it without knowing the 4 digit pin.

If you turn on Garmin Lock while you're at home, it will automatically unlock the unit when you're at home. Otherwise you'll have to remember the 4 digit pin to unlock the unit.

The Safe mode can definitely be disabled when you're on the road. Not so sure about the Garmin Lock since it's supposed to prevent a burglar from using it.

Screen froze up


"If your Quest locks up....on rare occasions, your Quest may freeze or lock up. In this case, reset the Quest by pressing the unit's Power key and the IN key at the same time. This will turn off your Quest. The unit will operate normally when you turn it on again."

Unable to hear on bluetooth option garmin 550 street pilot


The unit does not need an earpiece. Make sure that you do not have anything plugged into the audio out port on the back of the unit. Also make sure that the volume is turned up. If you hear the normal navigation instructions from the 550 then the volume is OK.

If all else fails, then reset both the 550 and your phone. To reset the 550, use your thumbnail to pry the face plate off. There is a small indentation on the upper side of the face plate where it meets the screen. Once the face plate is removed, depress the reset switch on the front right side of the unit.

Option to set pin and safemode


Ok, a couple of stupid questions here - it sounds like you have posted this before. If so, I did not see the post or responses, so forgive me if I repeat anything. At the bottom of that screen it should say Restore. Does it, and have you pressed this? Also, have you tried resetting the unit either with the reset button or using the master reset? What happened?
