I just received my c340 in the mail, and tried to install the Drivers. Im supposed to turn on the unit first, but it doesnt turn on. Im reading a lot of negative reviews on the FixYa Website. Does the unit usually arrive with a dead battery? Never used a GPS before, I hope I didnt waste money on this device.

seem to respond when you hit it with your finger or a stylus, you may

Have you tried resetting the unit? It sounds like you may have a problem that Garmin needs to address. I would try to reset it first, then make sure you have the latest firmware loaded on the unit. If you still have the problem, it may have to be sent to Garmin for repair.
Go to garmin website www.garmin.com and download the latest USB drivers. After installing the latest USB drivers reboot the computer. Now attach the Garmin to the computer using USB cable. You should see Found new Hardware on your computer.
