If there are no power points in your vehicle, you might have to purchase a battery-operated powerpack and plug the GPS into that via a USB/AC adapter.

Free map updates for Garmin c330

Garmin has released new maps. Most of their units are entitled to a free update if the unit was purchased recently Just a heads up to anyone who recently purchased a C330. According to Garmin's tech support, the map udate 2008 is not free to those of us that recently purchased a C330. Only to those who purchased a C340 and up. Their excuse is that it is a "low end" unit, and also that the memory cannot hold the full US maps on the DVD. Gee, I can purchase the update for $69.99 and load a subset of the maps if I want, according to the person in tech support, but I cannot receive it as a free update. So, apparently buyer beware if you purchase Garmin's "low end" units. You will apparently not be able to receive a free update of maps, even if the unit you buy is already out of date.

Off-Ramp errors

According to the Garmin site:

Question: Why does my nuvi route me off highways and through small side

If your nuvi routes you off of the highway and puts you on small side
streets, usually there is a simple navigational settings change that should
resolve the issue for you.

From the 'Where to?'/'View Map' screen:

Touch the 'Wrench' icon.
Touch 'Navigation' icon.¹

On this menu there will be a 'Route Preference' and 'Avoidances' menu

If you have the 'Route Preference' set to 'Shorter Distance', this may
sometimes route you off of a highway to put you on a more direct route. Try
setting the 'Route Preference' to 'Faster Time' and see if that makes a
difference in how the unit routes you.

Another setting that can be adjusted is the 'Avoidances' option, touch on
'Enabled' next to 'Avoidances'
A list of avoidances will appear, on that list if 'Highways' is checked
then the unit thinks that you do not want to travel on highways and
therefore routes you off of them. Simply uncheck the box next to 'Highways'
and that should resolve the issue.

I had "highways" listed, so I'm hoping this fixes my problem tomorrow.

Dropped c330 only half the screen visible now. Fix or toss? Won't send to garmin for $150 repair when I can purchase a new GPS for that amt.

You nailed it -- I had the c550 which (originally) was $500 or so & I saw it recently on sale (since they discontinued that model/series) for $200. The FM Traffic receiver costs the same as what they want for the repair... Unless there's something sentimental about it (or something else special), I'd get a new one instead. However, don't toss the old one necessarily -- some people will pay for broken pieces of electronics (not much, but it's better than nothing)... Just my opinion. Good luck!

Data transfer from Steetpilot c330 to a nuvi 200

Unfortunately, the only way to transfer these addresses is one by one by hand. There is no way to connect the units and transfer them, or connect the unit to the computer and transfer the Recent Selections to it, and back to the new unit.
