Question about Garmin StreetPilot C320 (010-00401-00) GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Garmin c320 Hi. I purchased what I found out later to be a discontinued refurbished Garmin GPS (c320) from Tiger Direct. It has a 256mb sd card. My daughter can only load single states even though the card has plenty of room left. She'll load say Pennsylvania, New jersey and Deleware, but only Pennsylvania loads. Wondering if anyone has an idea?

Can i use garmin C320 street pilot in italy

Most stock units are equipped with a US & Canada map if purchased in the US. Yes, the unit will work in Italy but you will need to add a Europe Map on an SD card, as the internal memory may not be large enough to hold both maps.

Ebay Buyers Beware When Purchasing Garmin GPS Products

For those of you considering purchasing a new/refurbished Garmin GPS product through eBay;

Here is some info taken directly from Garmin's website (FAQ section - search under ebay) See my comments at the end.

Question #1. Does the unit I purchased on EBAY have a warranty?

Products that are purchased from online auctions such as EBAY are not covered by warranty. Online auction confirmations are not accepted for warranty verification and Garmin will not replace any missing components from any package purchased through an online auction.

Question #2. Does Garmin have any authorized dealers on eBay or any other online auction site?

Garmin does not have any authorized dealers that sell new products directly on online auction sites. Any purchases made through online auction sites are on a "buyer beware" basis. A copy of the original sales receipt is required as the proof of purchase for warranty repairs. Online auction confirmations are not accepted for warranty verification and Garmin will not replace any missing components from any package purchased through an online auction.

There is always the possibility that products purchased through eBay or other online auction sites could be stolen merchandise. You assume this risk when you buy through these auction sites. If you buy a Garmin product through an online auction site and later send it to Garmin for service, if the product is determined by Garmin to be stolen merchandise upon receipt at Garmin's facility (through a serial number match), Garmin reserves the right to return the product to its rightful owner or send it to the investigating law enforcement authorities.

Question #3. I purchased a unit through an online auction and Garmin has just informed me that the unit is stolen. What can I do?

If a unit is purchased through an online auction, such as eBay, and that unit is found in our stolen-units database, Garmin is not obligated to release any registration or unlock code information. Also, please be aware that Garmin can request that the stolen unit be returned to Garmin without compensation and report this information to law enforcement authorities.

If the product has already been returned to Garmin for service and is determined by Garmin to be stolen merchandise upon receipt at Garmin's facility (through a serial number match), Garmin reserves the right to return the product to its rightful owner or send it to the investigating law enforcement authorities.

** My Comments **

I purchased my Nuvi 350 on eBay through a so-called Garmin "Authorized Dealer". Three days later when my unit broke, I found out that Garmin would not honor the warranty and they told me that my refurbished unit was already registered to someone else. Garmin also told me that they had never heard of the "eBay dealer" that I had purchased the unit from (ebestdeals4u). This is how I got into fixing the Nuvi's on my own.

Now, I'm not saying that the sellers on eBay are going to rip you off. In my case, my Nuvi worked fine except that the power switch broke 3 days later.

As for stolen units: I'd be cautious of anyone selling a unit with just the GPS and no accessories or just the GPS and car adapter alone. Be more suspicious if they claim the unit is locked with a PIN and that they have forgotten it. If a seller has the original box and all of the accessories, it's less likely that it was stolen from a vehicle. However, ask them if the deal includes the yellow Garmin registration card. You'll need that to register your unit with Garmin and obtain future updates. It has specific information unique to each Nuvi. No two cards are alike.

However, just because you have the card, doesn't mean your unit hasn't already been registered to someone else. If thats the case, you're out of luck, unless the seller can give your the ID & password that it was registered with through Garmin.

You can be assured that if you purchaseed your unit through a well-known retail chain, your Nuvi WILL have a warranty recognized by Garmin. No, I don't work for a major retail chain. I am an Engineer in the Electronics field (not Garmin or any other GPS manufacturer).

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to email me at ks3r at sharc dot net.

Good luck & safe travels,

Need a North America SD Card map for my European Garmin nüvi 255w. Where can I buy one on line

You can buy direct from Garmin via this link. You can opt for instant download, purchase of SD memory cards or DVD ROM medium. You may also be able to buy maps at some of the outdoor stores and electronics specialty shops.

If you plan on using this GPS in North America from this point on, you might want to look into purchasing a "Lifetime Maps" subscription for about $119 instead of the one-time map purchase for $79. The subscription allows you do download updated maps up to 4 times per year, for life of the GPS. Contact Garmin Support directly for more info about this option.

The touch screen now works intermitantly, and it appears that their is a mist on the inside (water??). No one has opened this unit up. Is it warrenteed? What is the fix for this?

It sounds as if a small amount of water or moisture has entered the GPS.

The 2730 is now a discontinued product, and if bought new, is likely out of warranty. If purchased recently (less than a year) as a factory refurbished device, it would normally be covered under a Garmin Factory warranty. Water damage however, may not be covered.

If it is no longer covered, Garmin offers a "flat rate" repair for $170. Learn how to go about obtaining this service at the site below:

A couple things come to mind... at $170, to me - it doesn't seem to make much sense to repair, when "like new" factory refurbished GPS units can be had for the same / less money. The refurbs come with 1 year warranties (instead of a 90 day type after repair) & latest version of maps.

Lastly, if you don't want to do either of the suggestions above, you could attempt removing the back cover and allowing the device to fully dry out in direct sunlight for a day or two. Reassemble and operate the GPS again. Doing this sooner rather than later will increase the chances of successful drying with having permanent water damage.

Good luck!

Garmin C320

Yes, even a 2GB card will work in the Garmin Streetpilot. You will transfer your additional maps to the SD card, plug it into your unit, and then go to the Map System page to activate which map you want to see.

New Maps - Can't update unit

The new maps will be unlocked to your GPS using the code Garmin supplied you.

You will have to add these maps to a second SD card if your present card is full, or else purchase a larger card. Since all the Mapsource NT 2008 Europe maps are 1,395MB in size, you'll need to purchase at least a 2GB SD card.

Putting maps on sd memory card

For C330 owners that want to have both Canada and US 2008 map update on their GPS this is what you have to do.

Must have:
1 - Street pilot C330

2 - 512mb SD card
3 - SD card reader of some form (some cameras will suffice)
4 - Garmin 2008 Map Update North America

What to DO:

1 - connect the GPS to the computer
2 - Insert the Map update disk
3 - Install the Lower 48 states, United States
(Reason - the C330 has around 1000mb of memory and the "US 48 states" map uses around 900mb" while Canada uses 400mb...which is why you will need that 512mb SD card later)

4 - Once the GPS is updated with the US map. Browse the Map update disk contents. This can be done with going to "My Computer" right click on your CD/DVD drive and click on "Explore"

5 - Open the folder called "img"

6 - Copy the file called "gmappromU.img" file is around 430mb. (This is the map file for Canada)

7 - Insert your SD card into your card reader and connect it to your computer. A window should pop up. If not you should see it on your "My Computer"

8 - Once you have navigated your way into the SD card directory. Create a folder on the SD card named "garmin" (no caps)

9 - Go into your newly created "garmin" folder right click and paste the "gmappromU.img" file. (This may take upto 20 to 30 mins)

10 - Once the process is complete, Rename the "gmappromU.img" file to --> "gmapsupp.img" (watch for spelling, no caps at all)

11 - Remove the SD card, Turn off your GPS, Insert SD card into GPS.

12 - Turn on GPS, let it load, and there you have it, the FULL North America Map.

When you are searching a state or province (depending where you are located) it will give you an option which map to use, Canada/Alaska or the lower 48 US states. Select your map and you are set to Go.

I just read on the Garmin website that only regular MP3 files will work -- not books or music purchased through iTunes.
