Safe mode means that you can not access the menus while the car is in motion or if the GPS detects movement. If you have issues turning it off, you may need to do a hard reset. Lift off the face by lifting up just under the Garmin name and the reset button should be to the right of the face. There may be an update also for this issue from Garmin.

You must call the factory to verify you have the unit - -and they will reset it remotely - this is to keep a thief from using it.

HOW CAN YOU UNLOCK A CODE LOCKED UNIT if you dont have the code?


No, unfortunately. You either need to drive to the secure place to unlock it, or contact Garmin to have it unlocked. Once unlocked, I would recommend turning Garmin Lock OFF.

My Garmin C3550 street pilot will power up but screen is only white.


Try recalibrating the touch screen. Turn on unit while continuing to press the power button for about a minute. You will then be prompt to touch a series of dots on the screen. Once prompt to do so, release the power button and touch the dots. Press OK when calibration is complete. The unit will continue to power on. Good Luck.

Entering street names


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.

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.

Remove the front faceplate, (there is an indentation under the word Garmin on the faceplate that you can use to lift it with your finger nail). After removing the faceplate you will see a reset button on the right side. Press the reset and then try to turn the Garmin on.

Option to set pin and safemode


Ok, a couple of stupid questions here - it sounds like you have posted this before. If so, I did not see the post or responses, so forgive me if I repeat anything. At the bottom of that screen it should say Restore. Does it, and have you pressed this? Also, have you tried resetting the unit either with the reset button or using the master reset? What happened?

Safe mode only prevents you from using the complicated while you're in motion.

Garmin lock prevents people from using it without knowing the 4 digit pin.

If you turn on Garmin Lock while you're at home, it will automatically unlock the unit when you're at home. Otherwise you'll have to remember the 4 digit pin to unlock the unit.

The Safe mode can definitely be disabled when you're on the road. Not so sure about the Garmin Lock since it's supposed to prevent a burglar from using it.
