    I get some reception, but when I change screens or try to adjust the zoom it shuts off leaving only a slightly right of center vertical line on the screen. The only way to remove the line was to remove the battery/power source. I will update

Go to the Garmin website, search for your particular unit. Download and install the specific unit software and it will clear up this problem. This problem is caused by a new satellite launched in March 2008, the update fixes it.

Touch screen does not work


I had the same problem.
I fixed it by running the battery completely down.

Leave it on until it shuts down, then turn it back on till it shuts down again.
Repeat this a few times to make sure the battery is completely discharged.

After that, I plugged it into a power source and it worked fine.

The unit runs Ok for a few minutes and then shuts down.


Does it do this on just battery power or with an external power source? If on battery poer, then the battery if defective.

When you turn the unit on and get to the screen showing Where To?, View Map and Travel Kit look on the upper right hand corner of the display and make sure you see the battery icon all green. If it is not then the battery is not charged

My unit will not turn on when i start my car


Change battery, or check charge wire if hard wired. i would think your battery needs complete change. The reason for delay is usually the fact that it has reached the end of its life and takes some time to build enough charge to drive the display. The power pull is greater than the ability to store, so that is why it shuts down

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 Nuvi shuts itself off after only seconds during navigation


Is the battery charged? What does the battery indicator say? If you are using it in the car, is the power cord connected and working properly? If it is working correctly, you should see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph showing that it is connected to an external power source and that it is charging.

I had this problem today, updated the software, now the unit seems to be working perfectly. The unit "crashes" (single line down screen center) as soon as it get enough satelites to work with WAAS.

Go to Garmin site for software updates. Download and install the WebUpdater. Once or unit is hooked up to your computer and you have internet access, the software will download and update your GPS with the latest software fixes. I had software Version 3.7. For the Legend, Version 3.9 fixes the problems with WAAS.
