Unfortunately, I have some bad far as garmin are concerned, it is a discontinued product. Therefore, they no longer support it.

In the automotive field, manufacturers are required to keep spare parts for 10 years after the last model run has completed for that make,
in the electronics field such as GPS, and fishfinders, it can be alot less.

i'm sorry it is not good news......these days we are a throw away society with elctronics, and if you still want to continue, possibly sellit on ebay, or to a friend and purchase an updated model....

I dont agree with it, I just answer questioins......if you feel like you want to contact Garmin support, you can go to their website at and email support

    My Garmin Nuvi, about 3 yrs. old, will no longer acquire satellites. Is there a fix?

    You could try updating the operating software. That may solve the problelm.

    When the updates are downloaded it will also find optional updates. You don't need to install those unless you wish to. After you have safely disconnected the satnav from your computer re-start it and hopefully it will work.

    I have a Garmin etrex Legend about 5 yrs old. After I turn it on and it gets the coordinates, the screen will go blank except for 1 vertical line thru it. Also, I get no response from any of the buttons,...

    You have to update the unit's software from the Garmin site. A new satellite was launched last year which causes this problem. Updating the software fixes it.

    If this solves your problem, please come back and rate the post as "fixed". Thanks

    My Garmin c550 just stopped working today. It is about 3 yrs old. If it is a battery, how can I get it replaced? I'm in Orlando, Fl

    Mine did the same. Wouldn't power on. The manual says if it doesnt power on when plugged into a power source, reset it.
    There is a groove on the faceplate under the Garmin logo. place your thumbnail there and gently pry off the face plate. Look for the reset button on the right side, press it.
    The unit should power on for normal use.

    If you need to re-set it often, update the system software.

    How do I update my street piolet c-340?

    If you are referring to firmware updates and you have downloaded Garmin's Web Updater, just plug the unit into the computer. The Web Updater will connect online and let you know if there are available updates. If you are referring to map updates, it is up to you when to update the maps, but new maps are usually available for purchase each year. You don't have to update them that often, though.

    If you have downloaded the latest version of WebUpdater, you will be able to update the unit's firmware for free from Garmin. If you are looking to update the actual maps on the unit, map updates can be purchased in CD or SD card formats.

    Will not turn on

    Champ...If your 340 stops responding, try turning it off and back on.If this does not help, reset the 340.

    1.Unplug the power and the usb cables to remove external power.
    2.Place your thumbnail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the faceplate and gently pull off the faceplate.
    3.Press the reset button for about 3 seconds.
    4.Connect the 340 to a power source using power cable. The 340 should automatically turn back on and operate normally.
    Good Luck ... Ginny
