This happens when both the power and reset button are depressed. In my case the menu came up and the selection between items would loop. Pressing buttons did nothing. It wouldn't even allow me to select anything.

Solved the problem. It appears that the reset switch malfunctioned. I opened it up (hint: use a guitar pick to pry the edges apart) and removed the reset switch. If you don't like to solder you can gently pull the top off the micro switch and that will do it. Cleaned it with compressed air. .... Now all I need is new reset switch.

You need to pair with the gps first before you can use as handsfree. Turn on BT in your iphone and start to pair with the gps, there may be a code showing at the gps screen and then type the code on your phone, then they paired which means you can start to use it. Good luck.

I turn on my device and it only loads up the start page and then hangs there .......

First try a reset... then try turning off the little power switch next to the reset, then turn it back on. If none of this works, your firmware is likely corrupted... then: You either need to return it to Mitac or locate (Google) & flash the firmware file into the unit as follows:

Connect the mio p550 to PC
1.put the Button of the PDA in ON position
2. hold the joystick downward and press the reset button
3.choose "Image Upgrade tools"
4.choose "0=Image by USB"
5.intall the usb driver (PC require the drivers). The driver in the
folder "USB driver" that comes with the firmware file. the software "dnw5.0e" (also comes with the firmware package).
7.(if you want to make a test of connection USB, click the "USB
port/Status". If all is ok go to step 8
8. click "USB port/transmitted" and to show the way of the file
"MioP550 - Osc260A R05_P09.nb0" the reset button to restart the mio p550.
