Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Lost with Garmin c330

I have several issues with the Garmin my husband bought me for Christmas. First, it does not take me home (tried to see if it would), it took me a mile away to a dead-end dirt road. Then tries to tell me to turn onto roads that do not exist. I used it to go to an address that I was not familiar with and ended up taking a long country drive late at night with my kids, to nowhere. Thank goodness, I figured out where I was eventually. I tried it on a trip to visit my mother in the hospital out of town and what a joke. I have been asking around and found out that 3 other people I know, hate theirs as much as I do. I thought downloading updates would help, but says none available. They are having the same problems, is there a fix to this?

    I was bought the Garmin streetpilot C330 thinking that I had got a good deal as the price was great. Unfortunately it does not do the job that I purchased it for, often losing satellite signal and taking me on long trips.



    One day I went out expecting to get to the programmed destination only to be brought home again, which I did not tell it to do. I got back home and swapped it for my Husbands Tom Tom, which took me to my destination with no problem at all.



    I bought this device because I am new here in the United States and thought that buying a GPS would help my confidence driving here, not the case as I now have no confidence at all and afraid to go anywhere for fear of getting lost with a piece of equipment that is totally useless. Any one have any solutions to what I should do before I bin it.

Have you tried re-loading the current software? If that doesn't help, you may need to purchase updated maps.

Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers

Garmin c330 will not acknowledge our home address


if you have a laptop take it outdoors and reload the software while sitting in your car at your home, as the software loads it also checks for nearest satellite...I did have this same problem. It took me 9 hrs. to reload the software while I was outside...I ran an extension cord to my laptop.

Why can't update the firmware of streetpilot C330 ?


I would suggest getting in touch with the Garmin tech support. You may have to send the unit back for a hardware fix. There were some issues with new updates in some of their older products.

If the unit is working okay and you see no issues, you may find better value to leave it alone, and over time save up for a newer unit. If you look at their new NUVI series, these are far improved from the generation of the one you presently have.

Old map installed in new unite


I googled garmin c330 software update and went to a garmin site for this same purpose. I had no problem getting a current update (within the last year) and at no charge. There is also a user forum that is very informative. I travel extensively and have used mine for a year now. I wish I had bought it sooner Ray

Some automobiles have a metalic coating on the windshield. You will brobably need a remote antennae to use the GPS in this car.
