Re: will not stay on

Connect the Garmin using the USB cable to your computer. Turn on your computer and let it boot up. Now turn on the Garmin. Does it stay on? If the answer is yes then the battery is dead. If the answer is no then you have something internally wrong with the Garmin. If the unit is still under warranty then get a RMA and send it back to Garmin.

Since powering off and on your GPS isn't solving the problem, you should attempt a RESET. The RESET procedure is as follows:

1) Disconnect the GPS from external power.
2) Raise the antenna.
3) Locate the RESET button close to the antenna hinge on the rear of the GPS.
4) Press and hold the RESET button for 3 seconds.
5) Reconnect the GPS to external power source.

The GPS will have been reset and power back on at this point. If you have problems still, contact Garmin Support. You can download your manual here.

I hope this helps - if it did, please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!

The unit will not turn on, even when plugged into a power source. Unit was working fine a week ago. Garmin Streetpilot C330.

Have you checked the fuses in the power cable? There is a reset button under the front bezel. Try pressing that to see if your unit comes back to life too.

My Garmin street pilot 3i has stopped receiving satellite reception. It started about a week ago. Since then I've been on the Garmin site and checked for updates, changed the batteries and done a full...

Question: Why won't my StreetPilot i-series device acquire satellites?
Same happened to me - try --> Answer: If your StreetPilot i-series unit is having a hard time acquiring satellites we would recommend ensuring that it currently has the most recent version of unit software and then performing a master reset. In order to update your unit to the current version of software you will need to use the Garmin WebUpdater. Here is a link to the page on our website that has the WebUpdater program and instructions on how to use it:
Once your unit has the most up-to-date software, you may need to perform a master reset. To do this follow the steps below:
  1. Start with the device turned off.
  2. Press and hold the arrow button, wheel, and power button simultaneously.
  3. Continue holding these buttons until you see the message, “Do you really want to erase all user data?”
  4. Once this message appears, release all three buttons.
  5. Select ‘Yes’
Note: A master reset will restore your unit to the factory defaults and will erase all of your favorites and recent selections.
Once you have completed these steps, please place your unit outside in an area where it will have a clear view of the sky. The unit may need 15-20 minutes to initially acquire satellites. Once your unit acquire satellites you may continue normal operation.
