I may have pushed something on the Garmin to cause this problem.

Hi and thank you for choosing Just Answer.
I am Tech Michael and I will be assisting you today.
Please be patient as these are technical questions that may require a bit of conversation to solve. Also remember to be detailed in your description of the problem. That will help me make a diagnosis quickly for you.
How old is your Garmin unit?
Also has this ever happened before?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I will go in a few minutes and check out the unit. The Garmin 530 non Waas is one of the later years or model runs but about 9 years old.
The switches may have been dialed in improperly and we will check that later today and then call back.

Sounds good Ken I will be here ;-)
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The indicator is flagged in NAV and GS the Garmin will still shoot an approach and hold a heading to a GPS location.
Why is saying flagged on these two items.
Can/'t locate my Garmin books.

Hi, had the same unit setup in my plane a few years ago lol.
But the problem you are having unfortunately is a stuck setting. Its not one you can release manually. It is set by the Garmin itself and is supposed to time out when the destination is reached and should unflag at that point.
But yours is not releasing the flag automatically as it should. In this case Garmin needs to fix this for you. There are a few other places that perform this service but they are more expensive to use.
The best place to contact for this repair is listed here:
Its best to call them to set this up: Phone:(###) ###-####or(###) ###-####
I wish I had better news for you I really do, but its not a setting mistake on your part;-(
I will stick with you.
If you need me further you can reach me after rating at no additional cost until this problem is solved.
please be sure to give my answer a top-three rating.
It won't cost you anything to further to rate and I will be with you at no additional cost but you can always get in touch with me if you need further help;-)
Thank you and have a great day!
