Re: wont pickup satellites

WARNING: This will erase ALL user data on the device. You'll have to re-enter your custom addresses, etc...

To erase all user data on the device, please follow these steps:

  1. With the unit turned off press and hold the thumb wheel down, then press the back arrow and hold down, then press the power button.
  2. When all 3 are held down a message will appear that reads "DO YOU REALLY WANT TO ERASE ALL USER DATA". Select "Yes".
  3. Let go of the buttons and go through the reset sequence. The unit will need to sit outside to acquire satellites.

Battery replacement now ca't find satellite Garmin c320

More than likely when you reinstalled the gps receiver (the board with the wires connected to it) at the top of the receiver you did not position it properly. If it is not positioned properly it will not receive a satellite signal

Battery replacement now ca't find satellite Garmin c320

I had the same issue with the only difference that I haven't replaced the battery yet. When my unit can't locate or acquire satellites I change between GPS and WAAS mode. Within 45 seconds my unit successfully locates satellite. After some time if I disconnect unit I might have to switch it back to GPS and so on, and so on, and so on. It worked for me for past 3 months... Hope it will help you...

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.
