Question about Garmin StreetPilot c340 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

As I was driving and using my garmin, changing from my route to "detour" and back the screen froze (80 minutes ago). Since I tried to turn off (using power switch) and I also unplugged. Garmin remains in a frozen mode --- touching the mennu bar, or any other area on screen will not unfreeze. Please advise.

Try resetting the unit. Remove the faceplate (there is an indentation at the top) and press the Reset button on the right side of the unit. If this does not help, there is a Master Reset, but it WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES. If you have to do this, press and hold the bottom right of the screen and press the power button until the unit resets.

I read the manual. There is a reset button underneath the plastic cover surrounding the screen (pry off w/ your thumb) -- push the reset if the power can't be turned off otherwise.

WHEN IN A TRAFFIC JAM, HOW DO I FIND AN ALTERNATIVE ROUTE?


With the route showing on your satnav, press MENU and then DETOUR. This should take you around the traffic jam. Alternatively you could just turn off, drive a distance from the traffic jam and let the satnav update your route to get you back on track. I hope this solves your problem.

Many times my navigation system leads me to roads that are unnecessary to follow (like a tourist-view route), it only costs me more time if I follow exactly the same ways he asks me to follow. I wish it...


Go to Tools.... Settings....Navigation.....under Route Preference set it to Faster Time if you need to change it just press to Shorter Distance or Off Road.... if you change it make sure you press OK n bottom screen

Faster Time I use

Next

Avoidances.....should be Enabled......press it....make sure Highway is Not checked... if you make changes here also press Ok on bottom screen

I only keep checked U-turns ...Traffic...Car Pool ...Unpaved roads

Before you travel, add your route to the GPS, do a trial run from home and see which direction it is taking you by pressing the turn arrows
If that isnt the way you want to go, on the map screen press menu then press detour, this will take you in another direction again scroll down the turns and see the route

How do I set the GPS so it shows me the best route on main roads and not all the side, gravel and dirt roads


Click Tools.....Settings.....Navigation...

I like Faster Time.... you can change it to Shorter Distance or Off Road
depending on your gps

On Avoidances... I have it Enabled

click Avoidances.... I avoid U-Turns.....Traffic...Carpool Lanes...Unpaved Roads

click OK after your choices..

Good idea when you plan a route is to check it by arrowing down your map to make sure its the route you want to travel, if not go back to main page and click detour X to change route then you can save it if you like

I lost my detour symbol on the front screen. How


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

I want my Garmin to take me on a different route to my destination than the one that has been selected by Garmin. Does anyone know if I can change it to the route I want? Thanks!


On most Garmins there's a button marked "detour". On the touch screen versions it's an on-screen button rather than a physical button.

Program for garmin c330


The c330 doesn't know if there is a detour or accident, however, if you need to take a detour from your current route, select DETOUR from the Menu page of the c330. The unit calculates a new route and provides you with new instructions. It then attempts to get you back on your original route as soon as possible.

Shortest Route and Fastest Route Garmin Nuvi 200


The problem could be in your avoidance settings. I know when I was in Delaware, a 1/2 hour trip turned out to be a 3 hour detour because I had set to avoid highways.

In Garmin, if it's checked, it means AVOID. I know the documentation isn't clear but I've learned from experience (trial & error).

Sometimes it happens. Garmin isn't perfect but it beats looking at a map most of the time.
