    Using StreetPilot C330 for 5 months just fine. But today the voice directions were low in volume and then the unit would not power up.

    The screen lights up for a few seconds and then goes blank.

Question: Why won't my StreetPilot c3xx power on?
Found on the Garmin web site --> Answer: If your StreetPilot does not power on, or if it turns on then turns off, you can troubleshoot the problem by resetting or charging the unit. The reset is a "soft" reset that you can perform in the car; it restores power to the unit, but it does not remove data.
To reset the unit:

  1. Place the unit in the cradle and roll it backwards slightly to lock it in place.
  2. With the key in the car ignition, turn on the unit or put it in accessory mode.
  3. On the face plate of the unit, put your thumb nail in the groove under the Garmin logo and gently pull off the face plate.
  4. With the face plate removed, press the reset button on the right side.
  5. Turn the unit back on. If the unit still doesn't power on, you may need to charge it.
To charge the unit:
  1. Using the provided USB cable, connect the device to the computer.
  2. Reset the unit (following instructions above).
  3. Keep the device connected to the computer and allow it to charge overnight (7-8 hours).
  4. After charging, unplug the unit and power it on.

It took a nap...

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

Won't turn on


If it went completely flat it needs somne recovery time to get a decent charge in the battery to start up.

If after a few hours it hasn't started up then change the battery for a new one as that one has died.

While using my gps 12, the screen suddenly went dark with just a narrow border of lit screen. batteries good. I can faintly see the pages behind the dark screen.


it turns out I inadvertently adjusted the screen contrast. This is adjusted by holding the left arrow key down after powering up, until the contrast is corrected. If the screen was completely white, holding the right arrow key down after powering up would bring contrast back into balance.

Battery replacement navman icn530


Besides the two screws the back lit is "clicked" to the front lit. I used a small screwdriver and carefully pushed it in between the front and back lit and after some careful manouvering it clicked open at several positions. My battery was glued to the electronic print! Again using the small screwdriver and watching carefully not to turn on the power I was able to remove it. This procedure is certainly not an advocate of Navman! But in my case it worked ....

Screen remains lit and solid light blue when I turn it on, can no longer see the startup or other screens.


Try this......I had the same problem on my Garmin Nuvi and just fixed mine. When the receiver is lifted, there is a little plastic "reset" button on the back of the unit (near the barcode info). Press in on that and hold. The unit should turn off and then you can power it back on.
