Zumo 550 Shut Downs

When I try to enter an address into my Zumo 550, I get through the province and the city OK. Then it asks for the street number which I enter but as soon as I touch "Done" the unit shuts off. It seems to be doing this with all numerical addresses. The problem occurs either mounted on my motorcycle, mounted in the car or running on its own battery.
I noticed the problem yesterday and again today. I thought a software update might solve the problem so I that but the problem is still there.
The unit is still under warranty.

I am having the same problem, I can not figure out how to fix it. I checked the maps and I only have the Maps 2008 checked. If it is off then I can't get any directions. Help please as I really don't want to go through the hassle of sending back to Garmin.

I went to tools (the little wrench), pressed Map and then Map Info, as stated in the other solution. It should 2 maps as I have a card in. I simply removed the checkmark from the one I wasn't using and it resolved the problem. If you use a secondary map on a card, give this a shot.

The problem is with maps overlaying. If you go to the little spanner and then press Map and press Map Info you should only see one Map info. If you have more than one then you need to connect to a computer and go to the Garmin drive. Remove the additional map this will be called suppmap1. Just move it for the time being to you computer just in case you need to put it back.
Another way to check is to press and hold the Volume key on the left whilst powering up. This bring all the info for the unit. Press Next then More on the screen the map name is the 6th one down.
Whatever Garmin tells you to do will not work. I sent mine back and they replaced it within 5 days. Service on that score is excellent.

When I press address it goes straight to Street. It doesn't ask what State. If I put in address....it says not found. Brenda Romero


need a lot more info .... what gps model do you have,
your saying you put address it goes straight to street? then say i put addrees it says not found
Most Nuvi units you have to press Where To...Address....and on the bottom of screen you will see Change State / Province

First select your State..... then go back and select the City... it should now let you put the number of house press done ..then the street name

Question about entering address


First enter the state and then the city.

There are several cities with the same name in different states and therefore the street names would be different. However if you are first entering the state and then the city and the street name dosent show , then you will need to update the map on the GPS. For this you will need to contact customer service.
