Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS--Battery

I purchased brand new Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS in September 2007. I feel I need a new battery as it does not hold the charge too long. Can you please advice me what kind of battery I need, where will I find it and what's the model number of the battery it uses. I also need step-by-step directions how to replace it. I have called the manufacture and I was told by their technical support that the battery cost is $16.00 and shipping is $6.00 and both the positive and negative ends must be soldered. Thanks!

Re: Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS--Battery

The batteries on the units are not meant to be serviced by the unit. If you are not familiar with taking it apart, you may damage internal components in trying. If the unit needs service, it is best to return it to Garmin and let them take care of the repairs. As far as the battery not holding the charge, if you have not done so, charge the unit on the computer for a few hours. This sometimes helps.

With all Garmin batteries they must be fully charged for at least 12 hours at regular intervals (once a month) throughout the year. By discharging fully and recharging for 12 hours, and doing this a few times you will increase the battery life.

My garmin gps will not charge and it will not stay on.

Your battery inside the GPS is most likely either defective, or has been overcharged, creating an effect where the dry cells inside the battery are swelled and no longer work as they are made to. The only way to fix this is to send the GPS to service and have a new battery installed. to avoid having this happen again, don't leave any device with a rechargeable battery plugged in longer than it needs to be(IE after it has fully charged).

Remove front bezel by lifting just under the GARMIN name. Remove the 4 outer screws. Gently pull apart. Keep in mind the orientation of the antenna as it's a bit tricky to put back. The battery is mounted between the two speakers.

It's a round cylinder item attached to the main board by a plug. Problem is this plug also houses the connection to the speakers. If you are good at rewiring, cut the battery leads and reconnect them to the new battery. Not sure where to get the battery though.

When putting back the antenna, keep note of the tabs. The lower one remains on the outside of the shelf guide, and the upper one is on the inside of the shelf guide.b0d8aad.jpga47c0e7.jpg2a171e3.jpg

Pop the face plate off with your thumb nail right uner the Garmin logo. On the right side you will see a reset button. Depress it for 2 seconds. Replace face plate and power back on.
