Use MapSource to transfer the Waypoints from the unit to your PC. If you lose them, you can then transfer them back. (I updated a C330 from 4.40 to 6.10 and did NOT lose them, however.)

I recently updated my software to V.5.90 and lost all my favorites (about 50). I'm reentering them as needed but want to avoid this next time I update. I connected the unit to my computer via the USB port but see nothing coming up on my computer's monitor referring to the Garmin. How do I back?

Can't get unit to source home .


source home is not a term that is associated with GPS in the way you're trying to use it.
The way to go HOME is to first SAVE your HOME ADDRESS and then - click WHERE to - then Favorites and then HOME

Please update your O/S by downloading WEBUpdater from Garmin.
Once installed on your PC, each time you connect the 200W to the cable - it will recognize it, and verify you have the latest software.

A simple software update will fix most problems.

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.

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.

Is there a way to reset a garmin c550


http://www.tramsoft.ch/downloads/garmin/streetpilot-c550_owners-manual.pdf page 29 & page 30 discuss the 2 options for reset/restore.. one clears all saved data (i.e. favorites) & the other resets the system. I'd also suggest connecting the usb cord to ur pc & GPS , then use the update software, This can resolve any issues you may be experiencing.

How to save favorites when updating map software


Map updates have nothing to do with your favorites. The only time this may be a problem is if you have to do a Master Reset of the unit. Doing a Master Reset will erase all of your favorites, but is not usually necessary when installing map updates.

Screen frozen


Be aware - A Master Reset WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES. To do this, turn the unit off. Press and hold the bottom right side of the screen and turn the unit on.Keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you want to reset. Press yes. This will do the Master Reset.
