Hey there,

 

I believe you are referencing the "External Speedlite Control" menu selection in your EOS 6D. This menu selection is not compatible with the Speedlite 550EX because the technology was integrated into the camera after the Speedlite 550EX so the flash doesn't know how to read that communication from the body. All of the same settings should be accessible through the Speedlite's menu system though.
