Question about Garmin StreetPilot c340 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Frozen touch screen on

When I power up my Garmin c340, it is locked on the letter "n". If I tap the screen hard sometimes I can punch in an address but can not go to the selected location with accuracy.
If it has to be sent for repairs, where do I send it. I paid around $ 400. for it in 2006. I noticed that the c340 is selling for $ 140 online now. Would a re-manufactured c340 be a safe investment considering my c340 bought new, only lasted only 2 years! Thank You

The screen on my Garmin Street Pilot C340 is frozen


I read the manual. There is a reset button underneath the plastic cover surrounding the screen (pry off w/ your thumb) -- push the reset if the power can't be turned off otherwise.

As I was driving and using my garmin, changing from my route to "detour" and back the screen froze (80 minutes ago). Since I tried to turn off (using power switch) and I also unplugged. Garmin remains in...


Try resetting the unit. Remove the faceplate (there is an indentation at the top) and press the Reset button on the right side of the unit. If this does not help, there is a Master Reset, but it WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES. If you have to do this, press and hold the bottom right of the screen and press the power button until the unit resets.

My Garmin C340 froze up. can't shut off and touch screen does not


Have you tried a hard reset? Take off the silver trim ring around the screen by hooking a fingernail under it above the screen and lifting it off. There's a reset button at the side of the screen. Press that for a few seconds and it should re-boot the unit.
