My question was simple. I know that I have to go online for the program to delete old geocaches that I have downloaded onto my Garmin nuvi 550. I do not know what the website is to do that. Secondly I accidently deleted some files that were vital to the 550. Do I need to send the unit to someone for reinstall of those files or is it something that can be done on the internet? I have asked you those two questions twice already. You have not sent me an answer. Send answer via email!



Thanks for using JustAnswer.

What problems are you experiencing? Will the Nuvi boots up?

As I asked before, do I need to send the unit in so the files can be replaced and what www. address do I go to delete old geocache files.

You will need to connect your nuvi to your computer then navigate to:

Garmin\GPX Folder then delete all files ending in GPX.

If you are on a Mac, you must emply the trash.

The Garmin Nuvi reads upon startup "system software missing" Do I need to send the unit in? Where do I send it?
