Re: C330 is stuck in Albany and I'm in Orlando
It sounds like you need to do a master reset. Here's how..
To reset the unit you will need to press the bottom right hand corner of your screen and hold in (relatively firmly) and then press and hold POWER, make sure you release the power button when the unit turns on and a message will appear asking if you wish to clear all user data - select YES to this.
This will completely wipe all data on your unit including almanac data (satellite information). Your unit would then need at least 45 minutes with clear view of the sky to update the almanac and re-acquire a GPS fix which will show your current position.
This should fix the problem because it will be the way it was out of the box. When you turn it back on it will scan for it's exact location.
Good luck! I hope you have purchased a new unit, I can't imagine living without one now :-)

Register your Garmin at MyGarmin.com - from here Garmin guides you to download the webbrowser plugin to communicate with your Garmin StreetPilot C330 over a USB cable.
When your Garmin StreetPilot C330 is connected through your webbrowser - it will show compatible map updates. These can be ordered on DVD or downloaded.
Note that downloading the map update will take a very long time and requires at least 5 Gb of disk space on your PC/Mac. The internet connection needs to be fast and stable enough to complete the huge download. Otherwise its better to order the update through DVD.
I went into google and asked how do I update my c330 Garmin and it took me to a section there that gives you step by step instructions. Have not tried it yet because my computer will not take dvd's only c.d.'s. Have to have a friend help me out on monday. hope this helps.
(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.
I have contacted Garmin several times till I got an acceptable answer. Some of the C330 receivers were sold to car rental agencies and contain software version 2.30. These units cannot be uodated. They are not reconized as a HD letter in "my computer" and mine would not accept a map update.
I googled garmin c330 software update and went to a garmin site for this same purpose. I had no problem getting a current update (within the last year) and at no charge. There is also a user forum that is very informative. I travel extensively and have used mine for a year now. I wish I had bought it sooner Ray
