Question about Garmin StreetPilot c550 GPS Receiver
Ok, this is very complex and I am waiting for Garmin to get back to me on this, but I thought I would put it out here and see if anyone has any suggestions.
I updated the software on my C550 from 5.7 to 6.0. Since then, the unit would "flash" white for a second intermittently, and it lost the ability to repeat the distance when the lower right button was pressed. I spoke to Garmin, and they told me they had never heard of this, and after I asked, told me how to re-install version 5.7. I did this. Unfortunately, they did NOT tell me this would wipe out my favorites, just like a Master Reset which I did not want to do. The flashing seems to have stopped, but the unit still will not repeat the distance. It DOES say it initially. Further, the Garmin Lock no longer functions. The unit comes right on. I have tried to turn the lock on and off, and the unit asks me to set the PIN, which I do. It then asks me to set the Security Location, which again, I do. It immediately goes back to the Garmin Lock screen, as though it worked, but when the unit is powered off and on, it comes right on without asking for a PIN. Anyone have any experience with this? I have since reset, Master Reset and reinstalled all software.
Check to see if "Recent Selections" contain any of your favorites. You can then rebuilt Favorites from the Recent Selections. If the Recent Selections contain any of your favorite just select it and then select Save.
