Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

We have a Garmin StreetPilot c330. Wife used other day and said it quit working and the charger got hot. I had pluged it in and screen powered up due to her having to use my 1990 Mazda to make sure it would work. I have a TomTom and never had a problem.Q could it be Battery or time to Replace? Thanks

Hello,

the problem shouldn't be from the battery, but it should be from the unit itself.

You can take it out for repairs or better still, replace it if you are able to.

Take care.

How to charge the battery in the garmin c330


either use a car charger - or home PC USB charger from Garmin.
Off-brand cables tend not to work well - as they have voltage resistance and the sensitive equipment doesn't like.

Garmin died and will not turn on


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

MY STREET PILOT C330 IS NOT CHARGING.


The battery has probably drained to the point of being "empty", such that it's putting an enormous "load" on the incoming power from your power adapter. For all intents and purposes, it's sucking up so much of the incoming power from your power cable, your Garmin thinks there's little, if any, power available. That's because the drained battery is acting almost like a "short circuit", in electrical terminology. Try leaving the unit plugged into the charger for a day or two or three; if the battery hasn't been permanently damaged, it may come back to life enough fully, or at least enough to not act like a "short" across the incoming power power.

No power to garmin c330


Does the unit turns on while pluged into the computer? If the answer is yes, then you will need to replace the battery. The battery is not taking a charge.
