My garmin c330 will not run it had said battery low. Even in car lighter it will not stay on. When I push the power button it will power up and shut down right away


The Garmin C330 has an internal Lithum Ion battery that needs to be recharged. Use your USB cable that came with the device to connect it to you computer. The computer of course has to be on. Leave it connected to the computer all day or over night. After that time it should be charged completely. If it is not charged after that time the unit will have to be returned to Garmin to have the battery replaced.

Shuts off, won't charge battery


Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers

Garmin C330 resets itself


The first problem with it powering itself off is a battery problem. Your battery is not hold a charge.

The second problem with it powering itself on with the power cord attached is a power cord issue. The unit is suppose to automatically power itself on if a power cord is attached to it. This is Garmin way of turning the unit on when you start your car. Most auto cigarette lighter will cut power if the ignition is off, and restore power when the ignition is on.

Garmin uses this to turn the unit on and off. If the unit was being powered by the the cigarette lighter then it say unit is shutting down in 20 seconds after the power is cut.
