This solution is for c330 but it should work the same...

It took a nap...

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

    Oh my God, Jim is stuck in South dakota.

     

    Jim,

     

    I have heard that if you upgrade to the latest unit software, it will solve the freeze up problem. I went to Garmin.com and copied the URL for you to go to if you can. Follow the directions and put the latest version of software on your 340.

    Twice our brand new nuvi 1300T has just totally froze to where you cant even power off... why?


    A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes, or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

    To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

    Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

    1. Back up your Favorites.
    2. Perform a Hard Reset.
    3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

    I hope that helps.

    My garmin 340 suddenly stopped working


    Ummmmm "Low battery"....... not too hard to figure out. You need to charge it for several hours. If the battery is low it WILL go out on you and during that time, the battery may recover enough to come on briefly then go off again. Please charge your battery!

    with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.

    Will not turn on


    Champ...If your 340 stops responding, try turning it off and back on.If this does not help, reset the 340.

    1.Unplug the power and the usb cables to remove external power.
    2.Place your thumbnail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the faceplate and gently pull off the faceplate.
    3.Press the reset button for about 3 seconds.
    4.Connect the 340 to a power source using power cable. The 340 should automatically turn back on and operate normally.
    Good Luck ... Ginny

    GPS GARMIN 340 turn it off by itself.


    Does the unit comes on by itself once power is applied to the unit? If it doesn't come on by itself, then there is a problem with your power supply. The unit is designed to detect when an external power supply is applied and turn itself on. It is also designed design to detect if you unplug the unit from the external power supply. It will say "Lost external power, shutting down in 30 seconds". BTW are using Garmin cables?

    Garmin 340 streetpilot won't even turn on?


    I had the same issue with mine during a trip. Probably needs to be reset. See page 31 of the users manual on Resetting your c340. Once I did this it worked fine.
