    I just got my 260W today. I opened it up, started it up, and played around with it for about 10 minutes. I then noticed the battery was low. I went and plugged it into the car. It was still working, but after about 15-20 seconds it went dead and now it won't restart.



    Any suggestions. I'm afraid its a bad one.

    I have a C550 and it will not turn on.  It has not held a charge for some time now, so I always have to have it plugged in for it to work.  But it will not turn on at all anymore.  It is not even two years old.  I tried the reset button, nothing seems to work.

Could the battery be dead? Leave it to charge on the wall charger for several hours. Then try again. There is a way to do a hard reset....

I just bought a Garmin c550 that the screen went black and would not turn on. I removed the face plate surrounding the screen and found a RESET button. I pushed that button and plugged it into my computer and it turned on. I then charged it on my computer, installed some garmin update software so that hopefully won't happen again, and I use it now good as new. Good luck.

Forgot my pin for my garmin c550 gps, have'nt use in a long time.


You must call the factory to verify you have the unit - -and they will reset it remotely - this is to keep a thief from using it.

Damaged the connection in the 12v car power to the c550. result was some fine brass fingers bent. The c550 will not switch on even though I know it is fully charged.How can I check if the c550 is still in...


You may have shorted out the battery. Have you tried pluggin the USB cable into the computer? If not, try this. The unit should turn on. If it doesn't, your battery may be damaged.

HOW CAN YOU UNLOCK A CODE LOCKED UNIT if you dont have the code?


No, unfortunately. You either need to drive to the secure place to unlock it, or contact Garmin to have it unlocked. Once unlocked, I would recommend turning Garmin Lock OFF.

Garmin will not turn on.


I don't know what type Garmin you have but the problem usually is the battery. On my c550 I can open up and unplug the connector where the battery wires go to. Leave unplugged for approx 30 seconds then replug. The unit will usually restart like new. Might work with your Garmin.

Garmin c550 GPS-Won't turn on at all.


push and Hold the power button down while you push reset, keep power button pressed til it boots again. If it does not, and it's in warranty ship it to garmin. If it's out of warranty, have someone open it up and remove the battery for a couple of minutes.

Garmin c550 pin or password


The only way to unlock a PIN locked Garmin is to enter the correct PIN number, or take the unit to the location at which the PIN was entered. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.

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.

How do you get rid of the Pin Number?


Refer Page 6 of Garmin C550 Owner's Manual. If you forget your PIN number, drive to your security location where you set the PIN and this will unlock the unit. Richard New Zealand
