Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver
I have a Garmin c330 gps. When I turn it on i tries to find a satellite and after a few seconds asks me if I'm indoors. I press "no" and than it asks me if I'm currently in South Carolina (that's where I bought it from) when I press "no" again it continues to search for a satellite but never finds it...
I'm currently outside of the USA but I've put in the maps of the country which I'm in. The software version is 5.7 (the newest)
I guess it got damaged (or something) when I left the USA. I had it in my suitcase which probably wasn't handled with great care ;)
Please tell me what to do with the damn thing! I need it to work.
I saw that some people have the same problem with the same unit, but no one posted any reasonable solution to the problem!
Thanks in advance!
You can try both a normal reset or a master reset and see if either one works for you.
The normal reset button is behind the front bezel. You access it by using your thumbnail under the top part of the bezel and carefully pull the bezel off. Once off you press the reset button on the right side of the front face labeled reset.
Option #2 - Master reset, will lose all data.
With the unit off, use a pencil eraser to depress the bottom right corner of the screen while turning the unit on. Once on, let go of the on button and keep the lower right screen depressed and answer yes to do you want to reset unit and lose all data. Once reset you must allow the unit 45 minutes of good reception to reload all satellite data, moon data, time, etc...
Give it a try, it may work for you.

I've read elsewhere that the Garmin c330s will have trouble acquiring satellites as the batteries wear out, which usually happens around 15 mo. Batteries are soldered in, so replacement requires sending it in to Garmin. I've seen some reports from users who had this problem right out of the box or shortly after purchase.

Usually its u are somewhere where there is poor satellite signal , try to change ur place walk/ drive lill bit
I think i also faced the same problem what u can do with it is
first try to restart the unit
if still not resolved settings go to "restore settings ", switch it off again give some time then restart it again
if still not workinh go to reset button
if still not resolved "master reset" right lower corner, press for 30 seconds ( my guess) then restart
if still not resolved : call tech support : they will fix that or send a replacement LOLz anyways i received the replacement for som lill fault in display .
