Seems to be dead .wont turn on when plugged into the cigarette lighter Garmin street pilot c 510


Before writing the unit off as dead I would try obtaining a new 12v power cable and maybe try your cable in someone else vehicle, often the 12v power in your car can short not providing power to the GPS.

Hope this helps!

Street pilot 330 will not turn on when plugged into car power supply. Poosible battery charge needed?

Does the car charger cord have a fuse in it at the point where it plugs
into the lighter port, a lot of car chargers have a fuse, I can't tell
if your end, the part that goes inside the lighter port has a cap that you unscrew to replace the fuse, and garmin does not show it.

If the car is running, and it does not work, there is something wrong with the car adapter, or the unit at the plug, the battery should not have anything to do with it.

If the battery starts the car the battery is fine.

Unlock c510

Take the unit to where your nephew was playing with it, and it will automatically unlock. Otherwise, you'll need to send it in to Garmin with the receipt from an authorized dealer.

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.

Charging unit with AC adapter

I have a 100v A/C power / charger unit for my garmin C340 GPS that I use to charge my Garmin's battery every day. I can use thj adapter to run the GPS, or just turn it off and let it charge the GPS. But it connects dirctly to the Garmin GPS unit, not to the cradle like the Cigarrette lighter unit does. .

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.
