Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

My GPS is locked when I tried to update the maps. It just says loader loding... but nothing is loading and I can't even turn it off. Is there some sort of reset button so that I could at least get to the main menu?

Remove the coloured bezel from around the screen, there you will find the reset button.

Hope this helps.

I have never updated my GPS and have had it for about 2 years. The map froze in one spot while driving around and I turned it off. When I did that it then said the map was locked. I tried a reset and now...


try plugging it in to the computer and updating it. chances are it could be a bug in the software and it should be fixed in the newest software update.

NEED UPDATES


Yes, you can get SOME updates for free... indefinetely.

You will need the latest version of TomTom Home software, available for free from www.tomtom.com.

Install the software on your computer BEFORE connecting the TomTom GPC to the USB port of the computer.

The free updates you can get are:

1) "QuickFix" updates. This contains the global positions of GPS satellites, allowing the TomTom GPS to get a faster lock on the GPS satellites (the GPS will get a lock within 5-10 seconds of being turned on, instead of 2-5 minutes on some other GPS brands). It is suggested that you update the QuickFix at least once a week. If you don't do it often, the GPS will just take longer to find the GPS satellites, that's all.

2) Minor updates to your map(s), but only the ones submitted by other TomTom users.

3) Updates to POIs (Points of Interest), such as new stores, malls, gas stations, parking lots, etc.

Whole-map updates ARE NOT FREE

Map down loads


From what I understand, you have a 30 day guarantee for the latest update map. That 30 day stretch starts from the day of first use (not the time of purchase). It it is not a store demonstration unit then you still have 15 days. It goes without saying that if the licensed map has not updated within the 30 days period, there is nothing to update. You can however still use the Map Share feature to download the minor map corrections.

I suggest you frequently connect your unit to the calculator and the Tomtom Home software will do the automatic updates. If a new map is issued within your 30 period you will get. Even if you missed it you should console yourself in the knowledge that major map update are not that frequent. You can also buy other maps from Tomtom.

Lost maps by updating


Unit comes with pre-loaded maps. Why update? Maps on DVD is the same copy as it's on the unit.

If you have troubles make sure you're not in Navigation mode when running the update. Update does not like files still in use.

2008 update for street pilot i3


When you say you are clicking on the map, are you just using your mouse pointer to click or have you actually selected the Map Select tool at the top of your Mapsource screen?
