    my garmin 330 shows low battery, how do I charge my gps

  • acm563 Feb 09, 2008

    I have this same problem and have no idea how to charge my 330. The only time I ever see the battery charging icon is when I just now hooked it into my pc but that went off as well so not certain if it is charging or not. All other garmin products I have owned have charged via the car charger so I cannot understand why this does not work with the 330

    My 330 recharges well on the computer but when plugged into the car I get a low battery warning after about 4 hours. Car lighter does work, and unit turns on and off with the ignition switch, sometimes.

    Purchased at Thanksgiving & has worked well until recently. Charges well from computer but not from car lighter in either car. Anyone have a "working solution" ?

The same thing just happened to me today. It was working fine for over a year. I usually charge it in my car. But last week I charged it using my computer, and since then, it doesn't get any power from the car charger.

"unit turns on and off with the ignition switch, sometimes."

There is something wrong with your power cord or the connection to the cigarette lighter. Your unit should turn on and off with the ignition switch. If the unit is on and doesn't turn off with the ignition switch then your unit is running on battery. If your unit doesn't turn on with the ignition switch then the unit is not getting power from the cigarette lighter.

Have battery/alternator checked. Really clean connectors and battery posts even if they look ok. If battery is ok have it slowly recharged for 12-24 hrs.

First thing you need to inspect the battery.The battery warning light is coming,due to battery is low on charge or battery got weak.If the battery is low on charge then get it recharged.But if battery is very old,then get it replaced.The battery and turn signal problem are two different problems.
Turn signals not working are due to faulty hazard switch/Turn signal switch,or faulty flasher unit.But in some cases its due to faulty turn signal fuse located in the interior fuse panel.This possibilities needs to be checked.Keep updated for further help.Thanks.Helpmech.

If the media player battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Once the unit is charged how long does the battery run dry

Once fully charged, it will last for about 4 hours, if it is used without shutting down. The good thing is that it comes with a rechargeable lithium ion battery. That can be recharged once it is weak. I will strongly advice that you do not allow the battery run down completely before recharging as the battery might become weak and unable to hold a charge. So do not let your gps die before recharging. you can charge once it is low.
