Linda,

You need to check the fuse for both the car's cigar lighter AND the one in the GPS power plug (that goes into the cigar lighter outlet). Both must be good for the GPS to charge and power up.

I don't know if your friends cord worked in you car - or hers - so you're going to have to find out if it is the cord fuse or the car fuse. Since her cord worked on your GPS, start by using HER CORD connected to YOUR GPS in both cars. If it works in her car, but not in yours, check & replace your car's cigar lighter fuse. If or when it works in both cars, disconnect her cable and connect your cable to your GPS again. Connect into your cigar lighter. If it works, you're done. If it doesn't work, disassemble the plug at the end of the GPS cord (cigar lighter end) and check and replace the fuse if blown. You should be good to go at this point.

Please rate this reply if found to be helpful - good luck!

Garmin Street pilot C340 has always worked. This morning it did not turn on. I relpaced the fuse in cord. Any other ideas?


Try charging it from the WALL charger. The battery inside the unit may not be too great. Try it - over night from the WALL charge -not the PC charger. 8de415c.jpg

Garmin c340 Street Pilot. When I plug it into car lighter it used to go on automatically. Now I have to push the start button. It comes on briefly, then gets lines on it and blacks out. I have tried it in...


Check to see if your cord has a fuse in it and replace it if it has blown. Sounds like it's not charging and the GPS is automatically shutting off because of a dead battery. You may have to purchase a new cord. Perhaps you can try a cord from one a friend has first? Or maybe carry your GPS into a store that sells them and has demo units you can unplug and plug your in to see if it stays on.

Street pilot 330 will not turn on when plugged into car power supply. Poosible battery charge needed?


Does the car charger cord have a fuse in it at the point where it plugs
into the lighter port, a lot of car chargers have a fuse, I can't tell
if your end, the part that goes inside the lighter port has a cap that you unscrew to replace the fuse, and garmin does not show it.

If the car is running, and it does not work, there is something wrong with the car adapter, or the unit at the plug, the battery should not have anything to do with it.

If the battery starts the car the battery is fine.

Garmin street pilot c330 goes on and then goes off


Try to charge the unit for 4 hrs by using a wall adapter and then try power on it again and if still the same after you full charge the unit try to contact the manufacturer check if there is a latest firmware update for the unit.

My garmin street pilot 330 will not power on


I've had a couple of Garmin C330 units and a C340. They're good quality except for the flimsy power plugs. My first one out of the box had a defective plug which made intermittent contact when I plugged it into the lighter. Tightening the knurled nut on the tip of the plug helped somewhat, but didn't fix it completely. It became a non-issue after I bought a friction mount which came with a better cord and plug. The friction mount also stopped the problem of the suction cup constantly falling off the windshield.

GARMIN STREET PILOT-330 GPS


Hello KTFORE1,

The Street Pilot 330 comes with both a vehicle power cord and a USB cord for connecting the unit to the computer. If I understand you correctly the GPS isn't getting power from the vehicle power cord. Does the GPS charge if connected to a computer using the USB cable? If so the problem is likely the power cord or cigarette lighter socket you are using. If the GPS doesn't charge from USB port on your computer then the problem is likely the GPS itself.

If you determine that the cable is the source of the problem, check and replace the cable's fuse. You will probably also want to check and replace your vehicle fuses as the circuit that powers the cigarette lighter might have a blown fuse. If replacing the fuses doesn't solve the issue then you might need to replace the power cord.

Best Regards.
Ken

Check the fuse at the tip of the power cord. Unscrew the round black plastic and this will release the fuse. Otherwise there could be a problem with the power cord. If the cord is defective, replace only a Garmin replacement.
