Anyone - I purchased 5 garmin nuvi 550s - fresh out of the box all require system updates before you can do a map update.... 4 of 5 no issue.... #5 failed during system update and now i get te error that...

If the unit will connect to your computer you can try copying all files from one GPS to the other. Just be sure not to copy over the *.UNL file. That contains the unlock information for that specific device. This may get the unit running. If you get the error can not unlock maps after doing this try updating the map again. If the above fails please call Garmin for assistance. 1.800.800.1020

System software missing garmin 250w

If the unit indicates "software/firmware missing", then you can only try to re-install firmware by running WebUpdater again. If it doesn't work, then the unit has to be sent to service to have it re-flashed.

SYSTEM SOFTWARE MISSING!! on display - the maps just needed update - now the 'missing system software' is displayed ,, I thought it was the map updates needed to be updateed so I went to the Garmin website...

I had the same problem with my nuvi 200. I contacted Garmin via phone (toll-free number) and the tech was very helpful. He said that this happened when I was updating because the program was interrupted while the update was in process. The problem is because I needed the USB drivers for updating--don't know how they got deleted but once he sent me an email with the instructions and attached zip file to reinstall the drivers and reset machine, everything is good to go again.
