Here's an interesting one! My C-330 has a touch screen calibration problem, and if the unit was in regular operating mode, a re-calibration would be easy. The problem is, Garmin, in their want to get more money out of you for updates to the maps, forces a screen to be shown to "remind you" that you should go to their site and spend $70 for a street update. The only way to get out of that screen is to hit a screen touch button in the bottom right which says "OK". Well Garmin, the screen is out of calibration, and the first thing I see when I try to calibrate is your lousy map update screen which I cannot get rid of. MUST I send it to you and spend the money for a few streets which have been built in the past two "economic slowdown" years? or should I go buy a Tom Tom? Does anybody have a better way?

How can I uplode the new maps in to Garmin C330

Posted on Mar 02, 2008

You need to reset the unit. At the top of the unit by the screen there is a "finger nail" slot. Use this to pry off the face plate. Under the face plate is a reset button. Press the reset and you should get bact to normal. This info is in the manual, I don't remember where, but I had the same problem and this solved it.

Hi there,

hopefully your garmin would have come with a USB cable to connect up to your computer, on most devices today this would be the same port that is used for charging the device at home.

Then if you head over to this link (Garmin website) https://my.garmin.com/maps/checkPlugin_updates.htm?
I assume you have a windows PC, here but tell me otherwise.
You'll need to install the plugin which allows garmin to communicate with you device (to find out what model you have, and the current maps stored, as well as what new maps you would require)

If you don't have the USB cable, there is the option to also enter the serial number of your device, likely to be in small print on the back of device somewhere.

If you have the USB cable, you can charge the unit by plugging it into the computer. It will take longer (at least several hours), but it will charge as long as the battery is ok.

Frozen Screen


I had this problem and the only way to solve a frozen screen is to let the unit run out of battery and bring it back to life. Battery will die out on you for 6~8 hours. Once battery is dead you must do the following.

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

You will need to reset the device.
1. On the silver faceplat, under the word "Garmin", there is a tab. Remove the silver-ish fram carefully by pulling on the tab with your nail then by the sides.
2. once removed, press the reset button.
3. Once reset, the unit should work properly.
