Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver
OK, I am a now gps dependant, and my garmin will not stay on, no matter how long it is plugged in, and the reset isn't cutting it either. As soon as I push the power button, the screen comes on, then turns it's self off...help :)
My problem is with humidity or i believe it is. my garmin will turn on however if the humidity is high etc..then when i turn the garmin off it may or may not come back on. if it does great, if not then i have to keep it unplugged for some time9from a few minutes to over an hour) and try to get the A/C to 'dry"it out. It will eventually come back on however it has quit a couple of times when I truly needed it. Good luck with yours and maybe this will help you some.

Sounds like a battery issue in the unit. Are you still under warranty? Also, test the lighter plug for continuity. Vehicles can sometimes blow single fuses that control only the cigarette lighters in the car, and therefore, leave any electronics kind of high-and-dry. So test the outlet first, and if it doesnt function, its probably a car fuse issue. If it does, then you're probably looking at either a wire fault in the plug, or a faulty battery in the GPS unit. For either of these problems, take the GPS in to the retailer, and see if they will work out an exchange or replacement.

I was told by the store I took it back to that there isn't a serge protector in this model, so if the engine sends a serge to the gps it will fry it, and I could have had it fixed for 100.00 by sending it in to the company :( sorry , good luck

Boy, people are really dumb. The problem the guy is describing is NOT with it's opperation. It's with it's NOT operating when the adapter is not plugged in. It should run on battery for some time afterwards. I have the same problem and am looking for the solution. Thanks for your red herring know nothing suggestions.
