    Try opening and taking battery out for 10 mins and then replace and try again. If this does not work - then problem is probably with charger

Turn on and word Garmin appears, then it says loading maps then it shuts down.


It sounds like you have a battery that is going bad. The StreetPilot is one of the older Gamins, and have been known to need new batteries after a few years of use. I would advise upgrading to a newer GPS.

Damaged the connection in the 12v car power to the c550. result was some fine brass fingers bent. The c550 will not switch on even though I know it is fully charged.How can I check if the c550 is still in...


You may have shorted out the battery. Have you tried pluggin the USB cable into the computer? If not, try this. The unit should turn on. If it doesn't, your battery may be damaged.

Garmin streetpilot c550 gps wont power up


Remove silver face plate by prying with your fingernail. Remove 4 screws, open and unplug the connector that the battery and speaker wires connect to. Wait 30 seconds and replug. Problem solved. Put back together and turn on. If this dont work, you have bigger problems.

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.

Safe mode


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.

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.

Lock


When you turn it on it should ask for a 4 digit PIN.  If you don't remember the PIN move the GPS to the same location where the PIN was originally set.
