Question about Garmin StreetPilot c530 GPS Receiver
This problem only comes up when the battery is not properly charged, therefore not being able to power up the gps beyond the loading map page. Try to reset the unit by holding the power button for about 15 seconds, it will restart the unit, once it restarts it, check if it will get pass the loading map page. Then you try to back up the software on a computer, format it and restore the software back on the unit. If that does not help, then you carry out the following tests.
Try to charge the gps device for about 2 hours then try to turn it on. If it does not come on, then it means the battery did not get charged. That can be a problem from either the battery or the charger or the charging port.
First test the battery by fixing it in another gps and charging it for about 2 hours then turn it on. If it powers on the gps, then it means the battery is okay, but if it does not turn it on, then it means the battery is weak and cannot hold a charge and the solution is for you to replace the battery.
Next you test the charger by trying it out on another gps device, if it turns it on, then it means the charger is intact but if it does not turn it on, then the fault is from the charger.
Finally, test the gps itself by trying to charge in by connecting it to the computer using the USB cable, then you turn it on, if it does not come on, then it means there is a problem with the connection port or there is an internal problem or something with the unit.
Hope this advice was useful to you.
