C330 will not power up when plugged into power receptacle in car


First, check the car's power receptacle by plugging in another device that definitely works (or take your gps to another car). Cars generally have a fuse associated with the receptacle that can blow. The second most likely problem is that the internal battery inside the c330 has died. This is especially likely if the unit is old (more than 1 year) and if you live in a climate with extreme heat or cold (which reduces battery life). This video shows how to replace the battery:
The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to replace the battery yourself. See: http://www.newpower99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=GARMIN+STREETPILOT+C330&Show=ExtInfo I swapped the battery of my brother's dying GPS using the aforementioned kit and all went well. His Garmin is back up and running smoothly.
Hope this helps.

The 670 garmin shut down then say's low battery


musicman340,

It sounds like the rechargeable battery inside your gps is coming to the end of its life. After enduring the temperature extremes of your car in addition to numerous charges and discharges, these batteries do eventually die after a couple years. How old is your nuvi? If this is the problem, the good news is that you don't have to throw your gps away as this battery is readily replaceable if you follow the steps in this video:

Dislpay says powering off


yeah the battery is probably shot. Most normal batteries last about 3 years but since these gps tend to sit in cars and get hot and cold they tend to die much faster. My garmin nuvi battery lasted less than a year because of that

Frozen Screen


I had this problem and the only way to solve a frozen screen is to let the unit run out of battery and bring it back to life. Battery will die out on you for 6~8 hours. Once battery is dead you must do the following.

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 C340 battery not charging


The Garmin batteries tend to die after about 2 years. Garmin will replace the battery for you but prepare to pay top dollar. It is a shame because the problem is commonplace. They should have made the replacement user friendly. The battery is buried deep inside and it is soldered.

Garmin c340 gps freezes up


Avoid buying Garmin GPS. Their units have a non user replaceable battery that last about 2 years. After that, you have to send the unit to Garmin to replace the battery and be hit with at least $150 plus shipping. Possibly more if they need to fine tune something else. Look at other brands with easier battery replacement such as Sony, Navigon, etc. Garmin is a total rip off.
