Garmin c355 problem

As I have discovered many have this same problem, I am a little discouraged that I bought Garmin, though I may have had the same problems with any of them...? My Garmin c355 tells me to turn right as I reach my home destination, instead of left! I appreciate that it has been right 98% of the time, but it's that 2% of failure that could get me hopelessly lost... I know I could get a map, but, gee, I had such high hopes and expectations....and payed nearly $200 for this? Hope you can help

Garmin nuvi 270 shuts down when connecting to mac for map update

I've had exactly the same problem. Eventually I discovered it was the SD card. Take that out and it should work fine. You can re-insert the card once the Mac has found the device.

Garmin nuvi 200 ,I wiped all the software off my nuvi 200 if anyone has a backup a garmin 200, could I have a copy please. thanks Daniel-husse

If its a registered unit, you can go to and get it free.
It would not give you updated maps for free though (unless you bought the lifetime maps)

Just bought my garmin today and nothing happens when I turn it on even though I did have it outside

If it's not powering up it may need to be charged. If it is powering up but not working you should return it as it's faulty.

Touchscreen locked @ enter pin. Unit won't shut off unless power

The security pin ID was designed to discourage theft of Garmin GPS products. You can change the security PIN by taking your GPS to the location where you set the PIN and or send it back to Garmin with proof of purchase. I would see if you can update your unit through Garmin web site to see if it helps with the power issue, if not, it probably is the hardware switch and will require you to send it back to Garmin. If you purchased your unit from Costco, simply return it for a new one. Membership privileges. If you purchased it from your local retailer such as Auto Nav 2000 Plus, Inc. I'm sure they can assist you with getting your issue resolve with Garmin. If you purchased it eBay or an auction site, you maybe out of luck. Good Luck

I got a disc to run to update my garmin and discovered i had to have a data card to put into it for it to work

an SD card will work for you. Not sure why you need this though unless the disk wants to copy data to the card.

I have just bought a Garmin Nuvi 770, updated to the latest software version. Garmin site states 700 series can use 4gb sd card. New Crucial card failed to format (win xp SP3), sent it back and...

Problem solved. I bought a cheap 'integral' usb 2.0 sdhc compatible mobile card reader. Formatted rapidly and files loaded extremely fast.

I had a garmin nuvi bought for me as a present. When I took it out of the box, I discovered that the unit had a security pin code entered into it previously. I don't know the pin code so I can't even get...

Sorry but there is no master reset. If it was a gift, tell whoever bought it for you what happened and let them exchange it for you. If it has a security code on it, that means someone else had it before you. New units do not come from the factory with a PIN.

I have had success in unlocking Nuvi's but I will only do it for people who have a valid purchase receipt from a major retail chain and if they can provide me with their Garmin registration info so I can verify that they are the rightful owner.

There are too many of these units out there that are stolen and the culprits are looking for a way to bypass the PIN. This is why Garmin added this feature to their GPS's.

Garmin 2730 OFF and ON

Had a similar problem about a year ago., and discovered that the jack on the power cord had split at the seam and the contacts were not touching the unit consistently. A little bit of super glue to glue the halves of the plug together solved the problem.
