Question about Garmin StreetPilot c340 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Broken power button

The power button broke on my Garmin Street Pilot 340 and will not turn on. Garmin wants 150.00 to have it sent to them for repair. My c340 is only 1 1/2 yrs old and I can not see spending 150.00 to repair it, considering a new one cost 179.00 online and by the way, I paid 499.00 when I bought it.

where can I can get the power button repaired without costing me an arm and a leg?

If you're into self repairing things it may be worth it prying the switch open to see if you can replace the switche's membrane, or short the switch to see if it is really the powerbutton that is causing the problem. If all else fails there's a couple of repair services that specialize on gps repairs www.portatronics.com being one of them.

Give Garmin Technical Assistance a call. They will run you through a series of diagnostic and reset button sequences to try. The unit may just be faulty; in either case you will find out after the diagnostics are performed.

My garmin 340 suddenly stopped working


Ummmmm "Low battery"....... not too hard to figure out. You need to charge it for several hours. If the battery is low it WILL go out on you and during that time, the battery may recover enough to come on briefly then go off again. Please charge your battery!

Garmin street pilot c340 battery appeared low, used USB cable to hook up pilot with my computer but device doesn't appear to turn on, computer cannot locate device on Drivers, can I rechare steet pilot...


I followed the instructions of the Online manual for the Garmin Street Pilot c-340, I removed the faceplate of the Street Pilot and then using my thumb pressed down on the reset button. I then pressed the power on button on the side of the device- the screen lit up, I then plugged one end of the USB cable into my computer and the other end into the device. The information on the screen of the device indicated the Lithium Battery was charging properly.

Garmin 340 streetpilot won't even turn on?


I had the same issue with mine during a trip. Probably needs to be reset. See page 31 of the users manual on Resetting your c340. Once I did this it worked fine.
