When you go to the gar in site make sure your GPS is plug in to your comp. You will be ask to e terms the model and serial of your GPS then you will be able to see if there are any updates for the device. If there is the site will want you to download the update to your comp. Then it will tell you not to turn off your GPS most likely it does it all by it self. I have a GPS like yours I updated the map and the voice.

SOURCE: Saving Favorites before updating Garmin c340

Use MapSource to transfer the Waypoints from the unit to your PC. If you lose them, you can then transfer them back. (I updated a C330 from 4.40 to 6.10 and did NOT lose them, however.)

SOURCE: update 2009 maps into c340 how to

The Garmin Streetpilot C340 is discontinued, so there isn't much support for it. You can find some updates at
https://buy.garmin.com/shop/store/downloadsUpdates.jsp?product=010-00401-20&cID=164&pID=290

But no free map updates.

SOURCE: I used the Garmin Web Updater download to update

Have you been outside with the unit since the update? Usually when you take the unit outside and turn it on, it reads the satellites and gets it's location from those.

SOURCE: how do i change the interface option to "host" or "Garmin

I ran into the same problem. I then searched many websites and found some good info at: http://forums.gpsreview.net/viewtopic.php?t=11571. But, in the end, I simply changed USB cabels and the thing worked. So try changing your USB cable first, then go to the above website if you are still having trouble.

Why does my c340 keep losing satellite reception


Hello there:
please follow these instruction and this should help if not let me know and i willcontinue to get you more information for you
nstructions
  1. Step 1 Calibrate the screen of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the touch screen does not seem to respond when you hit it with your finger or a stylus, you may need to calibrate it. To do this, turn the unit off and then hold down the "Power" key for approximately one minute. You will see a calibration screen come up that will recalibrate the GPS2_bing.gif unit.
  2. Step 2 Reset the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If your GPS unit is not responding or is stuck on a particular screen, it may need to be reset in order to operate. To reset, remove the face plate of the unit by gently prying it off. Locate the "Reset" button under the face plate and press down in order to restart the device.
  3. Step 3 Change the fuse of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the fuse blows on the GPS, you will need to make a replacement using an ACG/3AG 2 amp fuse. Unscrew the adapter cord at the end and remove the fuse found there. Put in the new fuse to see if this returns function to the unit.
  4. Step 4 Update the software for your Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the GPS is not providing you with correct directional information, you may need to update the software or download new maps onto the device. Connect the Garmin StreetPilot C340 with the USB cord to your PC and log on the Garmin website for available updates.

Update for Garmin c340 GPS Receiver


to be able to update the C340 Streetpilot, you need a Secure Digital memory card (SD o SDHC) at least 1gb i will recommend 2gb.
log into www.garmin.com
you will see some tabs on top of the page like COMPANY - PRODUCTS - SOLUTIONS - MAPS -ETC.
Place your mouse on the maps TAB and select update maps.
It will open a new page with another tab that will say CHECK FOR UPDATES.
then you will see two o more options so you will have to choose what kind of device you have (the new cell gps, garmin nuvi, garmin streetpilot, etc)
after that it will ask yo to install a plug-in into your computer (you need to have the gps connected to pc) andit will scan the model and type you own and will then show you what is available for that unit (software like voices, maps, etc)

Error when downloading map updates


Try using a different website where you can download the maps for free. These should work. If they don't, you might need a software update from the same web site before getting more maps: www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00401-20
