    Help!

    I'm unable to enter a destination as my 330 seems to be frozen on a black screen. However, across the bottom it shows the purple "Back" screen on the left with the up and down arrows on the bottom right. On top of that it won't even shut off. Is there a fix, or is it on its way out? I'm driving to Jersey from Florida Friday.

    I have been having a similar problem - first I noticed the GPS lost accuracy and showed me as driving on the railroad tracks next to I95. Then, the GPS would lock up after I had started on my route. This is particularly annoying after I took the time and expense to replace the internal battery when the c330 was barely a year old. Should the C330 be recalled for defects?

"Black Screen"
It took a nap...

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

Wrong directions at final destination


I still have the problem. However I expect Garmin support to solve it for me at no cost. If Garmin charges for this simple problem, then the next 3 models I buy will not be by Garmin. Rgds.

Wrong information


Your unit is defective. Return it to the store or get Garmin to repair or replace it. I hope it's still under warranty. The wrong directions are typical of all GPSes but the screen freezing means that your device is broken.
