    i have dragged and dropped the music onto my garmin but the music icon on the screen has disappeared. what can i do to put it back.

    I've copied and pasted the music to the Garmin. I can see it doing it on my computer, but when I turn on the Garmin the music hasn't been transferred. There was a couple of folders in the Garmin, one was marked MP3 and another MP3s. Help!! It's not my Garmin 550. I was asked to do this as a favour for a friend.

You can drag and drop the music from the computer in folder view to the unit's MP3 folder while it is connected to your computer.

File deletion problem from Garmin c550


If your undelete program lets you undelete the _P3 folder, do it. Then try renaming it to MP3. See if this helps. This is the folder in which all of your music is stored. If it allows you to change the folder name, you should now see (and be able to delete) all of your music files stored on the GPS.

How to upload MP3 music

Remove the front faceplate, (there is an indentation under the word Garmin on the faceplate that you can use to lift it with your finger nail). After removing the faceplate you will see a reset button on the right side. Press the reset and then try to turn the Garmin on.

LCD Screen Faded Out


saw this on a different forum.

I apologize for the inconvenience. After further research with our engineers, a problem has been discovered on your C550. A file has been created to stop the unit from turning off and locking up. Please download the new file from your computer to the unit. The file is attached to this email along with instructions on how to get the file into the unit.

The following procedure will update the software in your C550 series and correct the power issue you are experiencing with your Garmin C550 series

1.) Let the Garmin sit without power for at least 24-48 hours.

2.) Plug the C5xx series into the your computer (using a USB port in the back of the computer) with the cable provided with the unit.

3.) After removing the faceplate on the front of the Garmin press and release the reset button. At this time the C550 series will reset and power on.

4.) Save the attached file included in e-mail from Garmin Product Support. Save this file to the desk top on your computer. Note: This will make it easy to find.

5.) Open the My Computer window (by accessing the start menu on the bottom left of your computer screen).

6.) Locate and open the Garmin Mass Storage device.

7.) Locate the Garmin folder and open.

8.) Open the remoteSW folder.

9.) Copy the file that you have saved to the desktop and paste it into the remoteSW folder you have just opened. Make sure that none of the files contained within the remoteSW folder is highlighted, or you will not be able to save the new file.

10.) A message window will pop up asking you to confirm that you want to replace the file; Select Yes.

11.) Disconnect the C550 series from the USB cable and let the unit restart. A message will appear on the screen stating "Updating PLD Software".

Note: the screen will fade out and go blank during this process. Do not be alarmed, this is part of the update procedure, and the screen will return to normal within seconds.

No MP3 icon in C550


If you loaded new files, they are probably not in MP3 format. Right click and check. I had the same issue and when I saved .mp3 files the icon appeared again.

MP3 Player icon not even coming on screen


Hold a finger on the upper right corner of the screen while powering up the unit. This should do a master reset.

If that doesn't work, go here to download an update.
