Garmin c340 will not turn off and I cannot see a reset hole.


Your unit has a reset button under the faceplate. There is an indentation under the top of the faceplate. Insert your fingernail and gently pry it forward. Pull the whole faceplate off, and you will see the reset button on the bottom right of the unit. I hope this helps.

Garmin c340 frozen in on position does not turn off when power is pushed stuck on arrival time


Look on the back or on the side someplace, what you are looking for is a small hole, just a little bigger then a paperclip. This should be the reset button, hit that with said paperclip and then allow the system to reboot. This should clear up the problem.

Why does my c340 keep losing satellite reception


Hello there:
please follow these instruction and this should help if not let me know and i willcontinue to get you more information for you
nstructions
  1. Step 1 Calibrate the screen of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the touch screen does not seem to respond when you hit it with your finger or a stylus, you may need to calibrate it. To do this, turn the unit off and then hold down the "Power" key for approximately one minute. You will see a calibration screen come up that will recalibrate the GPS2_bing.gif unit.
  2. Step 2 Reset the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If your GPS unit is not responding or is stuck on a particular screen, it may need to be reset in order to operate. To reset, remove the face plate of the unit by gently prying it off. Locate the "Reset" button under the face plate and press down in order to restart the device.
  3. Step 3 Change the fuse of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the fuse blows on the GPS, you will need to make a replacement using an ACG/3AG 2 amp fuse. Unscrew the adapter cord at the end and remove the fuse found there. Put in the new fuse to see if this returns function to the unit.
  4. Step 4 Update the software for your Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the GPS is not providing you with correct directional information, you may need to update the software or download new maps onto the device. Connect the Garmin StreetPilot C340 with the USB cord to your PC and log on the Garmin website for available updates.

The screen on my Garmin Street Pilot C340 is frozen


I read the manual. There is a reset button underneath the plastic cover surrounding the screen (pry off w/ your thumb) -- push the reset if the power can't be turned off otherwise.

My Garmin c340 has won't turn on, screen is completly dark unit is charged


I has the same problem with a streetpilot 540.. It wouldn't turn on, even once charged. There was no reset button under the serial number. However, prise off the grey plastic square plate on the front panel which goes around the screen. ( there's even a little space for your fingernail under the Garmin logo). The reset button is under that plate. Press that with a screwdriver then turn on. My unit turned on once reset.

My Garmin StreetPilot c340 is frozen.


No.......the C340 STREET PILOT has a hidden reset button. Put your fingernail in the slot just under the GARMIN name on the front face plate. Gently pull the face plate outward. Don't take it all the way off. The reset button is on the right side of the front screen just under this plate. Use a pointed object and hold the button IN for 3 seconds and unit will turn off. When you power it back up it will REBOOT.

GPS StreetPilot c340 quit working


Plug charger in, and then reset it. Let it charge for awhile before tryng to use it though. It sounds like the battery is very very low. When it is plugged in it still will not operate unless the battery has some charge in it. I hope this helps.

Dead Garmin StreetPilot c340


The battery usually has a small charge when arriving from the factory, but it can die before it is received. You should charge this by plugging it into the car or the computer.
