We have 1350 Garmin GPS . How long do we charge the battery before set up.

There are 3 ways to charge your garmin satnav.
  1. You can connect it to your computer' USB port with the mini USB plug. Plug the narrow end of the cable into the back of the satnav and the USB end into the computer. Turn both on and it will charge in 8 hours approximately
  2. Connect the supplied car charging lead. Plug the narrow end into the back of the satnav and plug the other end into the cigarette lighter socket of your car for approximately 4 hours.
  3. You can also charge it with an optional mains charger which also takes 4 hours approximately.

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.

Garmin won't turn on or charge.

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

Garmin street pilot c340 battery appeared low, used USB cable to hook up pilot with my computer but device doesn't appear to turn on, computer cannot locate device on Drivers, can I rechare steet pilot...

I followed the instructions of the Online manual for the Garmin Street Pilot c-340, I removed the faceplate of the Street Pilot and then using my thumb pressed down on the reset button. I then pressed the power on button on the side of the device- the screen lit up, I then plugged one end of the USB cable into my computer and the other end into the device. The information on the screen of the device indicated the Lithium Battery was charging properly.

Hello KTFORE1,

The Street Pilot 330 comes with both a vehicle power cord and a USB cord for connecting the unit to the computer. If I understand you correctly the GPS isn't getting power from the vehicle power cord. Does the GPS charge if connected to a computer using the USB cable? If so the problem is likely the power cord or cigarette lighter socket you are using. If the GPS doesn't charge from USB port on your computer then the problem is likely the GPS itself.

If you determine that the cable is the source of the problem, check and replace the cable's fuse. You will probably also want to check and replace your vehicle fuses as the circuit that powers the cigarette lighter might have a blown fuse. If replacing the fuses doesn't solve the issue then you might need to replace the power cord.

Best Regards.
