Streetpilot III won't power on


The first solution is, of course, to try recharging your Streetpilot III by plugging it in to either your accessory outlet (cigarette lighter) in your car.......or a USB port on your PC. (preferably a USB2 outlet that has a higher power output).

Try charging for at least an hour with the 'other' cord, if the unit won't power up after using the 'first' one.

If the unit STILL won't power up after charging with BOTH cords (for an hour each), then either open the unit and replace the battery, or, sorry....if you're mechanically/electrically challenged......you're best to send your unit in to Garmin for repair, because it could be any number of different problems.

Good luck!

I used the Garmin Web Updater download to update software on my Garmin StreetPilot C340 GPS and it now indicates that I am in Olathe KS...I am in ND. How do I fix that?


Have you been outside with the unit since the update? Usually when you take the unit outside and turn it on, it reads the satellites and gets it's location from those.

Battery replacement now ca't find satellite Garmin c320


More than likely when you reinstalled the gps receiver (the board with the wires connected to it) at the top of the receiver you did not position it properly. If it is not positioned properly it will not receive a satellite signal

Can't find satellites


Hi,

Update the device at the Garmin Web-updater

http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/

This can resolve transient GPS problems.

Failing that update the firmware.

Aquiring satellites


Are you outside with a clear view of the sky? It should find satellites once the unit is turned on. Does it say "Looking for satellites" or "Acquiring satellites"?

If it is "looking for satellites" then it means that the unit have lost all data (time, date, location). If it is "acquiring satellites" then it have date and time, but not location.

Looking for satellites require a longer setup time (could be as much as 15 minutes). Acquiring satellites is much faster (not more than 2 minutes).

Date and time is updated from satellites once the unit gets a satellite lock.

Will not pick up satellites


Without more information, it is hard to help. However, when we bought ours, we had trouble getting the unit to locate the satellites. The fix, was to get in the car and drive with it for about 15 to 20 minutes. After about 10 minutes of driving, we kept inputting our home address (we also deleted the home address between inputs). After about 4-6 attempts it finally took and located the satellites. it has worked exceptionally well since then.
