If there are no power points in your vehicle, you might have to purchase a battery-operated powerpack and plug the GPS into that via a USB/AC adapter.

How to charge battery?


In most cases you use your cigarette lighter that came with your unit to charge the battery. I myself have a home ac to dc converter to charge mine with.

I have a Garmin Streetpilot c330 with a car charger but it doesnt charge the battery for some reason so now my system is dead, is there anyway to fix this problem?


Check the fuse in both the cigarette lighter socket on the car and the cigarette lighter adapter on your power cord, the tip should twist off and this should expose a fuse.

Hope this is of some help.

My garmin c330 will not run it had said battery low. Even in car lighter it will not stay on. When I push the power button it will power up and shut down right away


The Garmin C330 has an internal Lithum Ion battery that needs to be recharged. Use your USB cable that came with the device to connect it to you computer. The computer of course has to be on. Leave it connected to the computer all day or over night. After that time it should be charged completely. If it is not charged after that time the unit will have to be returned to Garmin to have the battery replaced.

How can I recharge the battery on my Garmin Nuvi?


Just use your USB cable that came with it to connect it to your computer. It will charge just fine. You can also use a cell phone charger that has a USB connector. A lot of cell phones use this type of charger now and the charge will work fine with the GPS>

I can't charge my GPS while I am in the car


Verify that the car cigarette lighter outlet is working. Do you have something that you could plug into the lighter like a light?

With the car running plug the Garmin into the cigarette lighter outlet. Does it come on without pushing the ON button? If the answer is no then there is either a problem with the cable or the cigarette lighter outlet. It should come on by itself if the lighter is working. Also are you using Garmin cables and DC adapter?

Keeps turning off


Your power cord is cutting in and out. You either have a bad power cord or there is something wrong with the connection to the cigarette lighter. When the unit say "Running on battery - will turn off in 30 seconds" this mean that it has lost external power. This is by design so that when you shut off the engine external power is cut to the unit and that it will shut down.

It a shame that for the C330 Garmin decided to remove the LED light from the power cord that shows the power cord is connected correctly to the cigarette lighter.

GARMIN STREET PILOT C330


take off the front face plate. hit the reset button on the right. charge it. I've got a 320. Same thing happened. On the 320 if you look closely there is a fingernail shaped indent on the inside of the square colored face plate. just pull the face plate towards you and it will come off with very little effort.

Garmin C330 resets itself


The first problem with it powering itself off is a battery problem. Your battery is not hold a charge.

The second problem with it powering itself on with the power cord attached is a power cord issue. The unit is suppose to automatically power itself on if a power cord is attached to it. This is Garmin way of turning the unit on when you start your car. Most auto cigarette lighter will cut power if the ignition is off, and restore power when the ignition is on.

Garmin uses this to turn the unit on and off. If the unit was being powered by the the cigarette lighter then it say unit is shutting down in 20 seconds after the power is cut.
