Garmin c530 won't turn on

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 have had my C530 for only two months. I had been powering it through the cord in the car. One day i tried to turn it on and it is blank/won't turn on. I have tried to reset it multiple times and i waited 24 hours before trying it again. I will try to leave it unplugged for 2-3 more days and see what happens. thanks

    I have had the same problem with my 696. It would not turn on. I removed the battery and replaced it. Then I was able to turn it on. I don't know what up here but I do not like it. Mooney in NH

    Was using the c530 to track several addresses in sequence. I was plugged into the vehicle 12V system cigarette lighter. I had shut to ignition off several times and the c530 then shut down and started up again when I started the vehicle. The last time the c530 would not turn on. I tried the reset, still won't turn on.?!?!!?

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

I have a garmin street pilot c530 after i power it up and agree to the disclaimer the screen reads as follows no deailed maps found that support routing street pilot cannot be used without them the unit...


I just purchased my c530 a couple of days ago and had been loving it. I had added some custom POI's to my sd card using POI loader version 2.4.0 and that had worked fine. Then the other day I tried to load some new custom POI's, but POI loader got hung up and froze. After disconnecting the c530, I restarted it. After it started, a screen came up that said "No detailed maps found that support routing. The Streetpilot cannot be used without them." I contacted garmin, here is the site for contact info since I am unsure where you are. http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/supportcontactand the tech support at Garmin. They said that somehow the files on my c530 must have gotten corrupted. The person I talked to at Garmin was very friendly and walked me through several things trying to get my unit to work. He was very apologetic and said that this should not have happened. He told me I would have to return it and get a replacement. Sorry Hope this helped.

Have you tried firmware update for your gps .
If you have not tried it try to update the latest firmware .
By updating firmware your problem can be fixed .

If your problem still exists then try to charge your gps from any external charger and check whether screen is working properly .

If your problem still continues then you need to take your gps to near by shop to get it repaired .

Garmin c530 wont power up. Did it once, took it apart and worked for a few days, died again.


Did you reset it? lift off the cover plate by slipping your fingernail into the little slot just beneath the Garmin logo. There is a reset button hidden under the cover...

My Garmin 680 bluetooth stopped working w/ my LG Vx8600


I have found the only thing that works thus far is to click on the red phone in progress icon then go to "call options" then click transfer audio to phone, then transfer audio to nuvi. Sometimes I have to do this twice. but it works.

Garmin gpsmap 60csx won't acquire satellites


Go to the Garmin Web site's home page, avoid staring to long at the hot chick and click on "On The Trail" .. "Mapping Handhelds" .. scroll down to the second row far right and click on the 60CSx. You will then see the 60CSx page, look to the right and click on "Updates & Dowdloads", on doing so you will now see four downloads to choose from. The one you will need is "GPS Chipset Type G Ver. 2.90 as of Nov 27, 2006" if you follow this you shouldn't have any problems. If however you do i'll keep an eye on this page and try to help, this is my first GPS and also had the same issue.
