    Z umo 550 will not turn on, the screen is blank and there is no response from any button. If i pull the battery and replace it (requires special T10 bit), the unit will power on. Happens too often that I know how to overcome it.

Have had a similar problem a couple of times. Removal and refitting battery appears to sort it out.

Take out the battery and leave for a few minutes then replace.

    Zumo 550 randomly shuts down, sometimes won't power up again.

    Commonly happened when playing MP3's using an early version of the firmware. Install the Garmin updater and install the latest firmware and patches.

    My original unit did the same thing.

    Garmin Zumo 550 Freezes

    If the unit freezes with something on the screen, then the book that came with the unit tells you to push the power button and the + sign button at the same time and this should fix the problem. Good Luck.

    The garmin is on but frozen

    Look near the SN # and press the reset button.


    with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.

    I have the same problem. Seems to happen when I get a photobox warning in a tunnel an after that loose satelite connection in the tunnel. This has happened two times at the same place, The only solution I`ve found so far is to take out the battery and start again. Hopfully there will come a software update for this soon!

    My garmin zumo will not turn on.

    Have you also held the power on button for a couple of minutes, with the battery installed, and without the battery installed. There is an issue with the garmin dying, some cases a new battery helps, other cases, just leave the battery to charge for several hours, worst case is that you have to ship it to Garmin. I had a couple of Dead Zumo, however, removing the battery for several minutes, putting it back and clipping the zumo in the car holder did the trick for me. I also have a spare battery and allen wrench, just in case...

    Touch screen not working properly

    I'm not familiar with the Zumo family of GPS from Garmin, but if they are similar enough to the StreetPilot, you should be able to recalibrate the screen. In the StreetPilot series, to recalibrate you turn the unit off. Press and hold the bottom right of the screen and turn the unit on. Keep pressing the screen until the calibration information begins. Try this, see if it works on the Zumos, too.
