Question about Garmin StreetPilot c550 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Help! Use my Garmin every day in my work! One day last week I plugged it in, and it wouldn't turn on. Pushed the button on the right side toward the bottom, and it worked. Then the low battery sign came on, and now it seems it was only running on battery, and not charging. How can I tell if it's an internal problem, a fuse problem, or a cord problem?

Turn on your garmin out of the car, connect to a PC via USB cable and see if the battery indicator goes away. If it does then the USB to PC cable is working and charging the unit. To test the car adapter, you can unscrew the tip of the plug to examine the fuse. Most Garmin car charger units have a light on them that ilimunates when you plug it in and turn the ignition. It could be that the plug is just loose in the socket. The picture shows the unit running on battery. If you plug in the usb cable and this indicator goes away, then it should be charging.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Welcome to FixYa!

Here's how to reset Garmin Street Pilot C550:

1. Remove the front plate of the c550 by sliding your finger under the groove in the plate below the Garmin mark on the plate.

2. Push the now-exposed reset button. The reset button is located on the same side of the c550 as the power cable connector.

3. Plug the c550 into an external power source to restart the c550 after you have reset it. The factory default settings will be restored.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Have a great day.

Touch screen is not responsive. Did it one time last week - I turned it off and back on then it worked. This week I have tried multiple times and it still does not work.


This sounds like it is likely a hardware problem with the unit, but to be certain, contact Garmin's free customer support at http://www.garmin.com (and press the "Support Button" on the top of the page or call at 1-800-800-1020. Phone queues can vary a lot from day to day and time to time.

The yardage on my golflogix is off by app. 9-10yards this has happened in the last two weeks


Go to the help button in the upper right hand corner of your course manager. There will be a bunch of questions that appear down the right hand side. The bottom one should say How do I restore my golfgps. Press that, and press the button that comes up that says restore. With the gps plugged in and turned on, it will quickly move to say that your gps has been restored. Press Ok, and turn the gps off , count to five, and turn it back on. Reload your courses, and you should be good to go!

Had the same problem. Called Support. They answered immediately - a HUMAN, no recording, speaking American English - walked me through some tests, diagnosed a defective battery, gave me info on returning unit, I had it back in a flash. This is a classy outfit, and the Garmin C330 is a superb piece of equipment, has been flawless since.
