Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Loss of Somes States and Cities

I have updated my C330 Street Pilot. I just set off on a long trip from Canada to Arizona. Arizona has disappeared! When I try to type in Kansas it suddenly brings up Kentucky as the only state starting with a "K". Likewise when trying to type in Arizona the only states that come up are Alaska and Arkansas. Although I was able to bring up South Dakota it will not bring up the state capital of Pierre SD. I managed to find Phoenix by the old fashioned way of reading and memorizing a map from the nearest 7-11, always reliable and no stress. Had to get to the Phoenix Airport tonight. When selecting the "Airport" prompt it brings up airports 500 miles away, although I am sitting at the Phoenix Sky Harbour Airport. Should I throw this thing in the garbage?

    Hi,

    I followed the instructions to perform a master reset. The reset was accomplished but it did not change anything. I tried to reload maps from the map updater. A message came up saying that the required memory for storing maps is missing. Now what?

    I updated c330 and now the unit gives the wrong directions on occasion. It has taken me miles out of the way and not used the most direct streets/roads. It worked better before the online updates.

You can perform a master reset to get it functioning again. Just following these steps:

  1. With the device powered off press the 'Bottom Right' hand corner of the 'Touchscreen'
  2. While pressing down on the screen power the unit ON and continue pressing the screen until a message says 'Do You Really Want To Erase All User Data'.
  3. Tap 'Yes' and go through the set up again.
  4. Please allow the unit sit standing still outside for 15-45 minutes
  5. Allow the unit to acquire satellites before searching again

Putting maps on sd memory card


(Untried)
For C330 owners that want to have both Canada and US 2008 map update on their GPS this is what you have to do.

Must have:
1 - Street pilot C330

2 - 512mb SD card
3 - SD card reader of some form (some cameras will suffice)
4 - Garmin 2008 Map Update North America

What to DO:

1 - connect the GPS to the computer
2 - Insert the Map update disk
3 - Install the Lower 48 states, United States
(Reason - the C330 has around 1000mb of memory and the "US 48 states" map uses around 900mb" while Canada uses 400mb...which is why you will need that 512mb SD card later)

4 - Once the GPS is updated with the US map. Browse the Map update disk contents. This can be done with going to "My Computer" right click on your CD/DVD drive and click on "Explore"

5 - Open the folder called "img"

6 - Copy the file called "gmappromU.img" file is around 430mb. (This is the map file for Canada)

7 - Insert your SD card into your card reader and connect it to your computer. A window should pop up. If not you should see it on your "My Computer"

8 - Once you have navigated your way into the SD card directory. Create a folder on the SD card named "garmin" (no caps)

9 - Go into your newly created "garmin" folder right click and paste the "gmappromU.img" file. (This may take upto 20 to 30 mins)

10 - Once the process is complete, Rename the "gmappromU.img" file to --> "gmapsupp.img" (watch for spelling, no caps at all)

11 - Remove the SD card, Turn off your GPS, Insert SD card into GPS.

12 - Turn on GPS, let it load, and there you have it, the FULL North America Map.

When you are searching a state or province (depending where you are located) it will give you an option which map to use, Canada/Alaska or the lower 48 US states. Select your map and you are set to Go.

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.
