Question about Garmin StreetPilot c550 GPS Receiver

MP3 Player icon not even coming on screen

In my haste to load music on my brand new GPS, I decided to delete the 7 songs that came preloaded. Now, my player won't even play. No icon. I can't figure out what to do.

Did I erase some important song file?! This is crazy.

    I deleted some songs- yet they are not actually deleting, when I put the songs back on ( I was just adding the correct album covers) they are now playing in duplicate... so every song gets played twice before going to the next one?

    Yes, I am experiencing the same problem. I deleted the original songs that came with the gps and loaded new songs in the MP3 format. I cannot see the new songs, but am seeing the old songs still on the unit. How do I delete the files from the unit and load the new songs.

If you loaded new files, they are probably not in MP3 format. Right click and check. I had the same issue and when I saved .mp3 files the icon appeared again.

Hold a finger on the upper right corner of the screen while powering up the unit. This should do a master reset.

If that doesn't work, go here to download an update.

How come when I plug my new mp3 player in my car, it only plays the preloaded songs that came with theproduct? I have an MP727-8G


you have to have the songs you loaded in the same root folder as those songs in order for the head unit to find them. Connect the player to your computer and open the files to view. Browse your way to the preloaded songs and simply move the others to that same folder. While your there, you may want to delete the preloaded stuff that you dont want.

GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!

Files invisible to Windows still play, can't delete.


These re the songs that came with the player even if it is brand new, and plus since these artists don't want these to be copied they use a special method to hide them form any OS, hope i helped....

Deleting files


You have to plug the mp3 player into the computer, double-click My Computer, double click on the icon of the GoGear, and then go into the Music folder - exercise caution: only delete music files - if you delete files that are non-music files, you will effectively destroy your GoGear.

Windows Media Player is more complex, but it is a safer way to delete songs:

Will eventually lose songs downloaded?


Okay, here's what i've encountered:  songs that I downloaded on rhapsody, without purchasing, only lasted about 7-10 days unless i reconnected.  once my trial period ended, i lost all the songs.  songs that i've purchased i've had no trouble (although if you load them to the sansa immediately after download, you may get the same message.  its best to wait at least 24 hours).  good luck

Removing music files


In order to delete the unwanted songs from your device, you must launch the Motorola Digital Music Center - it should have come with the installation CD, but is also available on Motorola's website at:
http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/support/default.asp?SupportSection=DigitalAudio
under Motorola Music Manager

When the M25 is conected to the computer and the music manager is launched, you can view a list of all songs on the device by clicking on the icon of the M25 in the left-hand side of the window. You can highlight the songs you don't want by left-clicking the song and pressing delete on your keyboard. There will be a prompt warnign you that this will delete the selected songs permanently from the device.

Synchronize to continue your music subscription


Do you have an account with Rhapsody? The preloaded music is part of the Rhapsody subscription service. If you dont have an account, you will receive that message until you delete the preloaded music, or subscribe to the Rhapsody Service. Best of Luck.
