    City Navigator Zumo 550

    I bought a Zumo 550 off the flea market last summer , was thinking about updating maps,never have done it before and getting ready to go on a 3k ride in about 2wks.Well I started to look thru the stuff I got with it and their is a dvd with it and it says on it City Navigator NT set up and map data.I was wondering is this the software I will have to down load before I can download the maps.I didn't get a owners manual with it and I'm not the smartest with the computer.And on the sleeve it is in it says the software came with 25 character unlock code that I will need,where can you find that. thanks for any help I can get.

    Download a Manual

    Let's see...

    First step would be to download a manual. Visit www.garmin.com , click on Support, and then Manuals, and then attempt to get their darn Web site to work for you. If it does, you can download a pdf copy of the 550 manual right to your PC.

    Next step would be to register your 550 at MyGarmin. This will permit you to download updated maps and firmware. Updated maps may be purchased online, either by single update or by lifetime subscription. Firmware updates are free.

    Finally, you may need that map DVD to load MapSource onto your PC. This will give you the ability to prepare routing on your PC and then transfer it to your 550 using the USB cable that should have come with it. Don't have the cable? Garmin will be happy to sell you a replacement.

    I don't think you will need the unlock code with that DVD, but if you do need it and don't have it, well...

    Hope this points you in the right direction.

    I think you'll need the unlock code. And if you don't have it, you'll have to buy a new DVD set I guess.

    You can contact Garmin if you want to know what they can do.
