Re: Updating an old 550

An update. Because I needed to get the loan unit up and running quickly I took the obvious route of signing up for a lifetime update on the Garmin site. Again for convenience, I updated the maps direct to the unit, selecting British Isles only. It updated with no difficulty. I very very rarely need ...

Updating an old 550

My 550 has gone the way of all things and, currently, is proving problematical. I will send it off for repair to repair-my-device.com who have done great things with it in the past but, in the meantime, I need a substitute. A colleague has given me his 550 that he no longer uses and I am looking for...

Do you only have the one device? Seen this problem when someone mistakenly installed the map from one device to another.

Re: Update

Hi Sussamb, thanks for the suggestion. I copied the .xml file to the card as suggested but to no avail, I still get the message that ALL the maps are locked. Which is strange because I started Basecamp and that said all the maps were UNlocked except the one I have just downloaded. Still nonplussed a...

Re: Update

I have had Lifetime Updates for my 550 for years. I saw 2019.20 was available so downloaded it to my computer in preparation for loading onto my SD card so I can have the whole of Europe rather than just the partial maps that Garmin says is all there is room for on my unit. After the map had finishe...
