Question about Garmin StreetPilot c530 GPS Receiver
I just bought a c530, and it worked fine through the inital setup and all (which I did a few days ago) and then today when I decide to try it out, it won't turn on. I have it plugged into the 12v in my car. It won't turn on either when I plug it into my computer.
I had the same problem: unit would not turn on under any conditions; was not recognized when plugged into my computer, and the REST button had no effect. I opened it up by removing the screen plate, then removed the four black Phillips screws. It wouldn't work unti I unplugged the battery, then plugged it into the computer with the battery unplugged. VIOLA! It came up with no problem...

Have a c530 I purchased 11/2006. In 12/2006 had 3 instances where I shut unit off and it would not turn on. Garmin had me do resets which did nothing. Had to leave unit to discharge for 3 days, then plugged in USB and it powered up and was fine (for a week or so). They gave me a new unit and at the same time a system software upgrade was available. The c530 was perfect through all of 2007. Then in Jan 2008, the same failures occurred 3 times. I discharged it 3 times and it now works, but for how long? My advice is to get anoher model. I have 5, c330's for over a year and they have had 100% reliability. l
