Question about Garmin StreetPilot c340 GPS Receiver
Unit will not re-charge from the cig.lighter. I changed the fuse and still the same results. Could it be that the battery needs to be replaced? If this is the potential solution, will I be able to change the depleted battery myself.
You are correct, most GPS units use a lithium ion rechargable battery, typically they loose there ability to retain a charge after about a year or so depending on use, resulting in the unit having to be always plugged in.
You probably could replace the battery on your own if you could get one, (needs to be soldered into the mainboard) however GARMIN does not sell battery's to consumers, they state that a battery can only be replaced by a garmin service tech.

Hope this helps
