Question about Garmin zumo 550 GPS Receiver
Is the gps recognized by the computer? Is it connected directly on a usb port in the computer, if not make sure you do, no hubs or cable extenders, last but not least, is it fully charged and powered on?

I had the exact same problem updating my GPSMAP496, despite several tries.

FYI, I was running on Windows 2003 Server as I couldn't contact the Garmin server from my Xp workstation for some reason, but these steps still worked even though it says Xp only.
Steps 1-12 are for computers with Windows XP only:
