Well if its like mine which is a garmin, it has a charging flaw it can only be charged while off, and if you wait for your battery to get so low it shuts off, your screwed cuz now its gonna take forever, basically powere up befor long journeys, turn off while not in use and allow to charge, if your at the point where it turns off, RETURN IT, you may have to wait days for this unit to com back to you, and dont go on long trips unless you have a way of getting back i was screwed on a 3100 mile trip, more like disaster but good luck to you

Seems to be dead .wont turn on when plugged into the cigarette lighter Garmin street pilot c 510


Hello,

Before writing the unit off as dead I would try obtaining a new 12v power cable and maybe try your cable in someone else vehicle, often the 12v power in your car can short not providing power to the GPS.

Hope this helps!

I had the same problem. Found out that the fuse had blown in the power cord. I bought a new fuse from radio shack and have not had the low battery since.

Garmin Street Pilot c340 mount


Try a hard reset using the reset button under the silver trim on the front. Pull off the trim ring by hooking your fingernail under it right below the logo.

If that doesn't work, then take the unit off of the mount for a better look at the contacts. Re-seat the mount onto the unit and see if that helped. If the mount is damaged, consider getting a friction mount instead of the suction cup. For about $40 you'd get new power contacts and a new cord, and the unit would sit on your dash instead of falling off the windshield all the time.

All of this is assuming that the problem occurred suddenly after a fall, and that your battery is still good.

Garmin street pilot c340 battery appeared low, used USB cable to hook up pilot with my computer but device doesn't appear to turn on, computer cannot locate device on Drivers, can I rechare steet pilot...


I followed the instructions of the Online manual for the Garmin Street Pilot c-340, I removed the faceplate of the Street Pilot and then using my thumb pressed down on the reset button. I then pressed the power on button on the side of the device- the screen lit up, I then plugged one end of the USB cable into my computer and the other end into the device. The information on the screen of the device indicated the Lithium Battery was charging properly.

Charging unit with AC adapter


I have a 100v A/C power / charger unit for my garmin C340 GPS that I use to charge my Garmin's battery every day. I can use thj adapter to run the GPS, or just turn it off and let it charge the GPS. But it connects dirctly to the Garmin GPS unit, not to the cradle like the Cigarrette lighter unit does. .
