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.

Forgotten my pin number for garmin and my secret location. how can i access/reset it please?


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.

Garmin Street Pilot C550 went dead


Did you try reset button? There's also a 2 amp fuse in the cigarette lighter plug in charger. If it's blown and battery is dead unit won't work.

My StreetPilot c550 which we got last Christmas seems to be outdated. Restaurants were no longer in business, and some streets were not recognized.


you might have to go to this website and update the software by downloading the free software: www.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=1515

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.

Garmin streetpilot c530


try calling their main number in Olathe, Kansas 1-800-800-1020 - i had the same problem with mine after we had gone online, registered, and downloaded updated software. The sucker would not find satellite signals. I ended up shipping mine back today - hoping they will fix it and send back quickly. The tech guy I worked with over the phone was extremely polite and walked me through some steps that should have solved the problem.
