    Garmin Died.



    I bought a new dc cord for the car and it was fixed. My friend had the same Garmin and replaced the fuse in the cable to fix his.

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

Might be a good idea to look at your route preference settings. If you have accidentally told it that you're a nervous driver who wants to avoid Interstates at any cost, it will do all it can to honour that request.

Garmin Streetpilot i3 GPS cannot load map to memory card


Sounds like your battery died and there's no juice to it. When the battery is low, the unit shuts itself off and has a hard time starting up. If possible, try plugging in your unit with a USB cable from the computer and leave the computer on for a few hours and see if that doesn't solve the problem. When in the car, sometimes the cigarette lighter socket comes loose.

Regarding your i3, the USB drivers must be loaded BEFORE you connect your garmin. If you do not have your USB drivers, you can download them from:

http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00434-00

Also, why would you need to upload maps? The i3 comes pre-loaded.

Garmin 330 street pilot keeps shutting down. Only 3 mos. old and has been connected to cigarette lighter. What is the problem? I need a manual.


Make sure that you age getting power from the plugin.
Test: With the unit OFF plug adapter into cigarette lighter.
The Garmin should turn on automatically. If it does not,
you are not getting power to the unit. Make sure you have
good connection at the holder.
Generally it powers off by itself because it is not receiving
power from the plug.
