Garmin c330 street pilot

My garmin does not turn on when it is plugged into the lighter socket. I bought it new last December 2005 and it has worked wonderfully. But all of a sudden it wouldn't turn on. We changed the fuse but that did not solve the problem. What else could it be?

The lighter socket does it work. Because it to has a fuse. ck your car fuse box (mini fuse).

Our garmin street pilot c330 tells us the battery is dead when it's plugged in and then goes blank. Can this type of battery be replaced?

yes the battery needs to be replaced, even when the GPS has external power the battery must be good for it to work,

Need battery for street pilot c330

THis battery will work in your C330 Garmin. I have had it in my unit for 3 years now without any issues.

Just open the unit and splice the wires, and use some electrical tape. Good as new.

2 Garmins, BOTH shut off right after they are turned on

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

My garmin street pilot 330 will not power on

I've had a couple of Garmin C330 units and a C340. They're good quality except for the flimsy power plugs. My first one out of the box had a defective plug which made intermittent contact when I plugged it into the lighter. Tightening the knurled nut on the tip of the plug helped somewhat, but didn't fix it completely. It became a non-issue after I bought a friction mount which came with a better cord and plug. The friction mount also stopped the problem of the suction cup constantly falling off the windshield.

Cracked screen on Garmin street pilot 330

Given the cost of buying a new LCD with touchscreen is about $130 USD + shipping. Your best solution is to sell the existing unit and buy a new Nuvi or recondition C330.

Garmin will repair the unit for $150 and provide the lastest update and map.

Garmin 330 street pilot keeps shutting down. Only 3 mos. old and has been connected to cigarette lighter. What is the problem? I need a manual.

Make sure that you age getting power from the plugin.
Test: With the unit OFF plug adapter into cigarette lighter.
The Garmin should turn on automatically. If it does not,
you are not getting power to the unit. Make sure you have
good connection at the holder.
Generally it powers off by itself because it is not receiving
power from the plug.

take off the front face plate. hit the reset button on the right. charge it. I've got a 320. Same thing happened. On the 320 if you look closely there is a fingernail shaped indent on the inside of the square colored face plate. just pull the face plate towards you and it will come off with very little effort.
