Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver
I charged the c330 with the USB overnight. Today when I used the c330 I plugged it into the car. Within 4 hours the low batt. msg. came on the unit. I then plugged in my cell phone into the cig. litt. and it worked fine. I checked the fuse on the charger cord and it appears fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I had a similar problem but discovered that the steetpilot was not making contact with the electrical prongs where it attachs to the suction mount. I cleaned the contacts and pried the prongs out slightly and then the unit began working and also charging the almost dead battery. The whole poblem seemed to be caused by too much tension on the mount adjustment knob which was causing the electrical contacts to separate when the unit would be turned for viewing. I intend to pay more attention to the battery charge indicator so that maybe I can solve a similar problem in the future before I run the battery down.

If you charged the GPS using the USB cable from a computer, this is too low a current for the size of battery that it has. You must use the dedicated AC charger, or the car charger.
If your unit has a battery in it that is older than about 3 to 4 years, it is possible that the battery is no longer able to hold the full charge.
The service rep for your GPS can change the battery for you if it is no longer holding the charge.
