Question about Garmin StreetPilot c340 GPS Receiver
I've owned my Garmin for about two years. I uses it a lot the first year and a half due to traveling. My traveling has slowed down now and I don't use it as much. I keep it in the glove box in my car, protected so it won't get bounced or damaged. I haven't needed to use it for about 4 to 6 months. I needed it the other day, and after hooking it up, and letting it charge overnight, it would not turn on the next day nor sence. Is there a built-in battery in the Garmin that needs to be replaced ?, and if so, where and how do I go about replacing it ? Thank you for any help you can give me. It's a great tool for traveling.

Frank, the ownwer's manual says to protect unit from extreme temperatures stated as "32 degree F to 122 degree F" or "zero degree C to 50 degree C" You said about a year and a half of use and then in the "Glove Box" so from August to January, there had to be clear sunny hot days in August, resulting temperature in car (depending on your lattitude) going up 140 to 150 degrees F... Just hope you're Canadian.... or maybe you toasted it.... sorry. Good Luck GB_C

Yes its most likely the battery, if you plug it into the charger, I assume it powers up normally? Il see if I can get you instructions on battery replacement. I remember there was one for your model or a similiar one. Hold on.
