The Garmin may not recognize the street name you are entering due to a scroll error. When you type, it constantly looks up streets beginning with the letters you already entered. If you happen to hit a wrong letter, it automatically errors out. Have you updated the unit recently? If not try that first.

Load USB drivers to PC (if not done already), connect Garmin, turn Garmin on, run webupdater, follow on screen prompts.

Need to Update Business Address on GPS


How long has it been named "Kilgour Place"? My StreetPilot C550 seems to list it as being Frantz Road. Try entering 6600 Frantz Road, Dublin, OH. It looks to me (from what I have been able to see) that this is the same location, just a different street name (for some reason). Let me know if this helps.

C550 wont take 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. Even a Master Reset will not change these settings. Your only other option is to send the unit to Garmin.

Typing street names


It's predictive text, if you have spelt the name properly it should be in the suggested street names. If it's not then it's not on the unit.

Portable GPS


All of the Garmin automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts. If one of these types of voice prompts has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak street names.

In order to change this setting on the StreetPilot c550/580, please follow these steps:
  1. In the Main Menu, tap on the Settings icon.
  2. Tap on "Locale"
  3. The second line on this screen has a picture of a mouth. To the right, the current voice for the GPS device is listed. Tap it to change the voice.
  4. Select a voice that is labeled with (TTS) at the end. These voices will speak street names.
  5. Select "OK". The voice has now been changed.
Your device should now speak street names.

Why does phone lock up?


Try connecting from the GPS menu. You may have to set the phone to be able to be found temporarily. Go to the unit's Bluetooth menu, make sure it is Enabled and click Add. It should look for your phone, and if it finds it, the phone should ask you to enter the unit's code. See if this works.

Text-to-Speech Not Working in New Unit


You found it. You must have a voice with TTS (Text-to-Speech) next to it. This is what speaks out the street names.

Keying in street addresses


To find streets that are numerical, not names, enter the address normally to start. Enter the State, City, and House Number. When it asks you to enter the street, look at the bottom of the keyboard. You will see a key marked 123. Press this key, and numbers will show up instead of letters. Type in just the numbers (25 for 25th Avenue, etc.) and hit Done. The street should show as (25th (St., Ave., etc)). Press the correct entry.
