The 3 wires are because the unit has a pcb on the battery which prevents over charging or shuts it off if the voltage falls too low. You can either use the pcb which is attached to the outside of the original battery (cut off the unit and reattach to the new battery with electrical tape) then solder the red and black wires to the appropriate Garmin wires or order a battery with built in pcb, If you do this, the green wire is not used, just solder the red and black wires from the plug-in connector to the new battery. It worked on my C330.

Can I replace the battery in my c330. Will not


Yes...... but keep in mind, it's not easy.
Step 1 remove the face.

Step 2, remove the screws. There are 4, one in each corner

Step 3, The hardest part. You can pull the unit apart with ease, but I must stress, keep note of the antenna which is at the top of the Garmin unit. Slightly open the unit like a hing with the top being the hing so you can take note of the antenna and how it sits. If you don't pay attention, you may not be able to put the unit back together.

Once you make the necessary notes, the unit comes apart as you can see here. There are two screws holding the battery.

The only problem here is that the plug housing the wires to the battery also hold the wiring to the Garmin speakers. Even though you can remove the plug, you will need to splice in the new battery. You can get these on Ebay.

Cannot take Garmin c330 apart to change battery


The internal battery on a C330 is not user replaceable. You will need to return the GPS to Garmin to have the battery changed.

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

Dead battery on Garmin StreetPilot c330


The silver faceplate snaps off (there is a tab at the top of the screen); remove the silver faceplate, remove the 4 screws to open the unit. The battery is located on the back half, and is conected to the circuit cards with a balck and red wire through a small connector that also as two brown and white wires for the speakers.

Can I replace the rechargeable internal battery in my Garmin Pilot 550c unit?


The battery can be replaced. You'll need to take the unit apart and look at the ratings and physical dimensions of the battery. There will be a part number on the battery but it will be specific to the manufacturer of the battery. The rating numbers you are interested in are the mAH and voltage. You'll want to find a battery that has the same voltage and at least the same mAH rating or higher. The higher the mAH rating, the longer the battery will last between recharges. Make sure the new battery will fit inside your GPS. There will probably be a plug on the old battery that was in your unit. The new battery may only have wires. You can splice the old plug on the new battery, just make sure you get the polarity correct.

Good luck!
