    mine did that too at first, now all it does is come on for about 2 sec and then goes off. The other day I kept turning it back on and finally after a boatload of times it did stay on and work al the way untill I got back home(30 mi). Today it will not stay on, what gives?

    I'm having the exact same problem. The pins seem fine. What else could it be?

    My Garmin charges easily via USB on my computer but will not charge in car. I, too, get low battery message and no charge. The outlet is o.k.

Push the reset button for three seconds...

It is found under the thumbnail door at the top of the unit
where GARMAN name is located.

The battery if good will recharge.

Why should my GPS indicate a low battery even though it is plugged into my AC outlet in my car?


It sounds like the unit is not being charged when it is plugged into the car. Does it come on when you plug it in, or do you have to press the power button? If you have to press the button, the charger is not sending power to the unit. Make sure it is connecting properly to the unit and that it is seated in the AC outlet correctly. If it is, check the fuse in the end to see if it has blown. If so, replace it. If that is not the problem, you may have a problem with the AC outlet in the car.

Garmin won't turn on or charge.


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

Garmin won't turn on


I hope this helps, I had the same thing happen today. I noticed on the face under the word Garmin you can pop the face off and underneath on the right side is a reset button I held it down for 10 seconds popped the face back on and pressed the power button it came on. I hope this works for you.

Question: Why won't my StreetPilot c3xx power on?
Found on the Garmin web site --> Answer: If your StreetPilot does not power on, or if it turns on then turns off, you can troubleshoot the problem by resetting or charging the unit. The reset is a "soft" reset that you can perform in the car; it restores power to the unit, but it does not remove data.
To reset the unit:
  1. Place the unit in the cradle and roll it backwards slightly to lock it in place.
  2. With the key in the car ignition, turn on the unit or put it in accessory mode.
  3. On the face plate of the unit, put your thumb nail in the groove under the Garmin logo and gently pull off the face plate.
  4. With the face plate removed, press the reset button on the right side.
  5. Turn the unit back on. If the unit still doesn't power on, you may need to charge it.
To charge the unit:
  1. Using the provided USB cable, connect the device to the computer.
  2. Reset the unit (following instructions above).
  3. Keep the device connected to the computer and allow it to charge overnight (7-8 hours).
  4. After charging, unplug the unit and power it on.

Can't update software for StreetPilot C330


I have contacted Garmin several times till I got an acceptable answer. Some of the C330 receivers were sold to car rental agencies and contain software version 2.30. These units cannot be uodated. They are not reconized as a HD letter in "my computer" and mine would not accept a map update.
