Street Pilot 330 battery dead?

What is Garmin's policy if the battery appears to be dead and the unit is still under warranty...Must it always be sent back to them, or do they have any type of repair service available? Thanks for your help.

    I just noticed yesterday that the battery isn't charging. I checked the fuse on the adapter and that is fine. The unit will work when it is plugged into the cigarette lighter in the car, but only then. I tried charging via the computer(which the manual says can be done) and also tried in with another adapter (in my son's car) and it wtill wouldn't charge. I'm assuming it's the battery since it does work when plugged in. I've had the unit since Christmas. Thanks for your help.

Help me unlock my gps i do not remember my pin # all i can remember is there is 6 # in the pin please help me

Take it back to the 'secure location' as indicated in your service manual. It will automatically unlock when it gets a full satellite signal. You have to enter the PIN number twice when setting up the unit. You should always use a number which is familiar to you so you can remember it. If you can't remember it, and if your secure location doesn't unlock the unit, you will need to send the unit to Garmin to unlock it. You will need your receipt for Garmin to unlock the unit.

Will not charge or activate the screen. (c340 Street Pilot)

It sounds to me that the unit is defective as well. no voltage at the battery does mean its dead but not defective. I would call in on the warranty.

Garmin street pilot c340 battery appeared low, used USB cable to hook up pilot with my computer but device doesn't appear to turn on, computer cannot locate device on Drivers, can I rechare steet pilot...

I followed the instructions of the Online manual for the Garmin Street Pilot c-340, I removed the faceplate of the Street Pilot and then using my thumb pressed down on the reset button. I then pressed the power on button on the side of the device- the screen lit up, I then plugged one end of the USB cable into my computer and the other end into the device. The information on the screen of the device indicated the Lithium Battery was charging properly.

My garmin street pilot 330 will not power on

I've had a couple of Garmin C330 units and a C340. They're good quality except for the flimsy power plugs. My first one out of the box had a defective plug which made intermittent contact when I plugged it into the lighter. Tightening the knurled nut on the tip of the plug helped somewhat, but didn't fix it completely. It became a non-issue after I bought a friction mount which came with a better cord and plug. The friction mount also stopped the problem of the suction cup constantly falling off the windshield.

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.
