Question about Garmin StreetPilot c340 GPS Receiver

3 Answers

Is it possible to track a stolen GPS with the serial number?

I have a Magellan Roadmate and figured there might be a way to find the position of a certain unit using the serial number, or specific product number.

    My Garmin was stolen out of my car after using on the road just once. I've heard the company line that Garmin only receives info, my response is "How doe the Garmin look up business names?" and "How does the activation of the device work?"

    Theses functions would not be working if there wasnt a 2 way signal between the device and a central computer!

Garmin has a large hard drive with all the points of interest inside the device.
All the device does is read the GPS coordinates that are broadcasted by the GPS satellites and processes data based on what it receives. It doesn't need to send any information to a central server.
If GPS was able to communicate two ways, there wouldn't be a need to purchase map upgrades for new roads, points of interest, etc...
I just got my Garmin stolen within the past 23 hours, and as much as I wish there was a way, there isn't...

No. Garmin only receives info, it doesn't send it. So you can't trace it. I also have the same problem.

You can trace anything, the gps is a global positioning system, it sends out waves to many satilites in space and then bounces back, its like saying u cant trace a cell phone yes you can, it has radio frecencies that bounce from tower to tower

Go into the tools menu or if it has a volume icon, turn the volume down all the way, you can't turn it off only down. Since you never give make, or model GPS that is about all I can say about it.

Can you change a GPS navigation system from street name to postcode


I am not sure what you mean by " post code" but a gps uses maps that are stored on the unit itself. In order to make a change on how it shows locations, it would mean that the maps would have to be edited. Any change like you are suggesting would involve a lot of work with computer programming. Since it is not a standard method of locating, it would not be marketed.
