Question about Eclipse AVN5500 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

Gps I just bought a avn 5500 off someone on craigslist, the only thing I can't figure out is how to search for place I would like to find. Everytime I got to touch it on the touch sreen its in grey which it like block out of something. There alot more features on the Gps where I can't access because there in grey. Is there a wire that has to be hooked up a certain way or is it the disc, is there a better one.

When I had my 5500 installed, I had the guy put in a switch so I could use the DVD while driving. A few months ago I accidentally hit the switch. I was getting Grey and could only use certain items. So the wire you have that is used to block use of DVD an part Nav during driving may be shorting out or hooked on the wrong spot.

Nuvi 205w LCD screen replacement needed.

Your only reasonable solutions are:

1) Send it back to Garmin for repair, which will probably cost you more than the unit is worth, or...

2) Check CraigsList or other places for good deals. The prices on these things have been in nose-dive mode for months and you're liable to find a very good deal for very little money. (I just bought a StreetPilot C330 for $50 from CraigsList last week.)
