Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

C330 does not work

I left the GPS in the car in very hot weaher. I think I cooked the battery but I do not find a way to get inside to check the status of the battery. After trying to get the GPS turned on so it would charge the battery, the fuse not is burned out. Wil I have to send the GPS to a repair facility? Is there a way that I can open up the GPS to replace thebattery? Harry E Hubbert Phone 941 773 4426 (Cell)

I wouldn't suggest opening your unit, the garmin manual says that once the unit is opened your warranty is void. Have you tried resetting the unit? Here is how you do that:

    Otherwise you may want to go thorugh this process:
    STEP 1: Contact Garmin Technical Support to receive an RMA number.


    Call or e-mail Garmin Technical Support Specialists to describe the problem you are experiencing and request a Return Material Authorization (RMA) tracking number. You will need to provide the unit's serial number (if applicable), your return shipping address, and a daytime telephone number.

C330 will not power up when plugged into power receptacle in car


First, check the car's power receptacle by plugging in another device that definitely works (or take your gps to another car). Cars generally have a fuse associated with the receptacle that can blow. The second most likely problem is that the internal battery inside the c330 has died. This is especially likely if the unit is old (more than 1 year) and if you live in a climate with extreme heat or cold (which reduces battery life). This video shows how to replace the battery:
The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to replace the battery yourself. See: http://www.newpower99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=GARMIN+STREETPILOT+C330&Show=ExtInfo I swapped the battery of my brother's dying GPS using the aforementioned kit and all went well. His Garmin is back up and running smoothly.
Hope this helps.

My streetpilot c330 won"t shut off.


IT'S CALLED A FROZEN SCREEN...

2 OPTIONS

ONE, RESET IT !!! (See resetting instructions below)

TWO, let the battery die out!

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

My garmin gps will not charge and it will not stay on.


Your battery inside the GPS is most likely either defective, or has been overcharged, creating an effect where the dry cells inside the battery are swelled and no longer work as they are made to. The only way to fix this is to send the GPS to service and have a new battery installed. to avoid having this happen again, don't leave any device with a rechargeable battery plugged in longer than it needs to be(IE after it has fully charged).
