I recently bought a garmin c550 from ebay and the screen it is locked i need to know how to unlock the screen do not have the unlock code can you help ?


Garmin's security code is setup in such a way that if you forget the code you can drive to a previously set "security" location which would then allow you to turn on the machine without the code.You could then use the menu system to clear the code. What you will have to do is either try to get the code from the person you bought it from or send in the unit and a copy of your receipt to Garmin to have them clear the code.

Screen froze up on my nuvi 205


have u tried resetting the GPS?, the reset in on the bottom, use a paper clip and poke through the decal and reset the button, that should clear the problem in most cases, this is caused by a full memory, erase as much saved data as you can to free up space, examples are "recently found" items, saaved trip or addresses you don't need anymore

Have you downloaded anything to the unit, such as MP3s or updated maps? Have you tried resetting the unit? What about a Master Reset? If you need to do this, and don't know how, let me know. Just be aware, if you do a Master Reset, it will ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES.

Screen says memory full and it won't map a route! GRRRRRRR


Hi, Please do not shoot the messenger (me) but this is a known problem with Garmin GPS units. According to Garmin Tech Support, this only occurs on Garmin units with older firmware. (Personally, I am not convinced this is actually true. I no longer have my Garmin C550, which I personally liked the best out of all the GPS units I have owned or used. I will buy another Garmin, probably a Nuvi, when this silliness sorts itself out.) Anyway, you have two options, neither of them acceptable to most people, including me. 1)Perform a HARD RESET which will wipe out all data on your unit, including your favorite points, Bluetooth connections, and almanac data (satellite information). Your unit will then need at least 40 minutes, with a clear view of the sky, to update the almanac and reacquire its location. To HARD RESET, unplug your C550 from the charger and turn it off. With the C550 screen facing you, press the bottom right hand corner of your screen and hold in (relatively firmly) and then press and hold POWER. You need hold both constantly for at least 30 seconds. Follow the instructions on the screen. See if any of your personal information is still there. If there is none, then you might as well perform Step 2 below. 2)Download and Load New Firmware onto the C550. Upgrading firmware is relatively easy provided you have a computer. Visit Garmin's website (www.garmin.com). Go to "Support" .. "Updates and Downloads" and then click "Unit Software." Download the software called WebUpdater. Run that and follow its directions. The new Firmware (Software that is loaded into internal memory that does not need power to remember the information) hopefully will fix the MEMORY FULL problem. Good Luck and please post back if the fixes helped or not. I really want the new firmware to work so I can buy another Garmin.
