Garmin Streetpilot c530

I heard from somewhere that even though the Garmin streetpilot c530 does not have text to speech capability, that one can sort of configure it to have text to speech?

Has anyone heard something like that or know how to do it?

Kevin A is absolutely WRONG. Your 530 CAN be configured for TTS. Just Google it - there are many sites describing the steps.

No, it is not possible to configure the unit to do something it is not designed to do. The text to speech feature utilizes a computerized voice with pre-programmed street names. Your unit does not contain this programming.

Touch screen doesnt work all the time


Hi,
Pop the face off to reset it, could sort it for you.
Press the power button for over 1 minute to calibrate the screen
and use the Garmin Web-updater to update the software.

Garmin C530 need pin to unlock


Have you tried putting the unlock code in the main directory?  To do this open up notepad or some similar text program and copy the code from the yellow sheet onto the note pad and save it as GMAPPROM.UNL.  Then open "My Computer" and locate the Garmin removable device.  Open the "Garmin" folder and copy that file to it.  Safely remove it from your system and turn it on.

Reset my garmin streetpilot c530gps


There is no way to just "reset" the PIN. If you don't have the correct PIN, you must take the unit to the location at which the PIN was set. Your only other option is to return the unit to Garmin.
