    My 340 (purchased two weeks ago) stopped being powered by the cigarette lighter socket while I was driving and then went to battery power. When that power source drained, the unit went dead. The socket charges my cell phone just fine and the fuse in the power cord looks good. If the battery is bad, shouldn't the unit still operate from the socket?

Resetting Your StreetPilot
If your StreetPilot freezes (stops responding to button presses), try turning it off and then on again. If this does not help, remove the batteries and then reinsert them. Disconnect from external power, if necessary.
Clearing all User Data
If resetting does not fix your problem, you may need to clear all user data from your StreetPilot.
• IMPORTANT: zf you clear all user data, you will delete all saved locations from My Favorites I and all settings in your StreetPilot. Be sure you want to clear all user data before proceeding.
To clear all user data, press and hold down all buttons in the following order: ciJ, Wheel, Power.
Continue holding down all buttons until you see a prompt, “Do you really want to erase all user data?”

My street pilot c330 wont power up

I am continually amazed by how many people list there problems with only the barest of explanation. How on earth do you expect a reasonably informative answer when your total description of the problem is "my street pilot c330 wont power up"? OK, so tell us more! Did it work just fine until one day it stopped? Did you let it sit for 6 months and when you plugged it in again... nothing? Did you check the fuse in the power cord? Oh, you didn't know there was a fuse there? Read the book! If you want help from me, kindly describe in a bit more detail just exactly what the problem is, a bit of history of what, if anything, led up to the problem, etc.!!!

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.

My garmin street pilot 330 will not power on

I've had a couple of Garmin C330 units and a C340. They're good quality except for the flimsy power plugs. My first one out of the box had a defective plug which made intermittent contact when I plugged it into the lighter. Tightening the knurled nut on the tip of the plug helped somewhat, but didn't fix it completely. It became a non-issue after I bought a friction mount which came with a better cord and plug. The friction mount also stopped the problem of the suction cup constantly falling off the windshield.

I had an i5 that lost voice. I fixed it by just replacing the speaker. Take it apart and measure the resistance on the speaker. If it is open or not 8 ohms, then you can use this speaker.

Good Luck
