    Looks like my C330 is working on battery only. Just today when I turn off car, I no longer get warning that unit will shut off or go to battery. It just stays on. Battery indicator just showing 1 bar.

    Looks like no power from car but I have checked and there is power from lighter.

I have the same problem and have read on other web blogs that the battery is dead.  You need to either send it back to garmin for a battery replacement or you need to order a 3.7volt lithium battery online and replace it yourself.  If you replace it yourself you may need to solder the wires.

Thanks

I had the same problem.  Check the connector to the car lighter, there is a fuse inside that needs to have a good contact with the metal tip.

 

In my particular case, the spring that suppose to push the fuse to the contact point, was too loose, so I fixed it by making sure there is a good contact between all metal peices in there.

 

I hope this helps

This a probelm with recharging the battery


Possibility is that your laptop's adapter's output is no longer capable of supplying enough power to charge the battery & operate the laptop simultaneously. Please try a replacement adapter & check if it resolves your problem.

Another possibility:
There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

I have a Garmin Streetpilot c330 with a car charger but it doesnt charge the battery for some reason so now my system is dead, is there anyway to fix this problem?


Check the fuse in both the cigarette lighter socket on the car and the cigarette lighter adapter on your power cord, the tip should twist off and this should expose a fuse.

Hope this is of some help.

Hello kdiltzbook,

Most GPS units can be charged three different ways:

1. Connection to a computer via USB port
2. Connection to a automobile via cigarette lighter plug
3. Connection to a wall outlet via an AC adapter

Typically most GPS devices these days include only the USB cord. Some GPS units also include the cigarette lighter plug. For most GPS units the cigarette lighter plug and AC adapter are optional accessories have to be purchased in addition to the GPS.

You don't mention which model of Magellan GPS you have so I am not sure which cords your GPS should have included. It sounds like you have the cigarette lighter cord and the USB cord? I am sure that Magellan has an AC adapter available for your GPS. You will want to contact them directly (their website is http://www.magellangps.com) or visit an electronics store that sells Magellan GPS receivers (such as Best Buy™) to purchase the adapter.

However, most GPS receivers can be charged from the USB programming cord on the computer. However, ensure you are plugging the cord directly into a USB 2.0 on the computer itself NOT a port on a USB hub. (A USB hub may not output enough power to actually power and charge the GPS.)

You will also want to check and replace the fuse on the automobile plug.

I believe that both the USB and automobile cords should be charging the GPS. If neither adapter is charging the unit then the problem may be the GPS unit itself. The GPS may have a bad battery or problem with its charge circuitry. If that’s the case the unit may require factory service as the battery pack is generally not considered to be end user replaceable.


Best Regards,
Ken

Keeps turning off


Your power cord is cutting in and out. You either have a bad power cord or there is something wrong with the connection to the cigarette lighter. When the unit say "Running on battery - will turn off in 30 seconds" this mean that it has lost external power. This is by design so that when you shut off the engine external power is cut to the unit and that it will shut down.

It a shame that for the C330 Garmin decided to remove the LED light from the power cord that shows the power cord is connected correctly to the cigarette lighter.

Garmin 330 battery


"my garmin c330 will not charge in the car while traveling?it has a full charge when i head out but after 4 hours it shows low battery,i was thinking the gps was supose to charge with the car adapter plug in.my will not charge."

There is a problem with the cable or the cigarette lighter power supply. If the cigarette is working then when you start the car the Garmin should turn on and when you turn off the engine the Garmin should shut down. If you are manually turn the unit on/off then it is not running off the cigarette lighter power supply. Check to make sure there is power coming from the cigarette lighter.

Garmin C330 resets itself


The first problem with it powering itself off is a battery problem. Your battery is not hold a charge.

The second problem with it powering itself on with the power cord attached is a power cord issue. The unit is suppose to automatically power itself on if a power cord is attached to it. This is Garmin way of turning the unit on when you start your car. Most auto cigarette lighter will cut power if the ignition is off, and restore power when the ignition is on.

Garmin uses this to turn the unit on and off. If the unit was being powered by the the cigarette lighter then it say unit is shutting down in 20 seconds after the power is cut.
