Dead Garmin StreetPilot c340

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.

The battery usually has a small charge when arriving from the factory, but it can die before it is received. You should charge this by plugging it into the car or the computer.

I used the Garmin Web Updater download to update software on my Garmin StreetPilot C340 GPS and it now indicates that I am in Olathe KS...I am in ND. How do I fix that?


Have you been outside with the unit since the update? Usually when you take the unit outside and turn it on, it reads the satellites and gets it's location from those.

Why does my c340 keep losing satellite reception


Hello there:
please follow these instruction and this should help if not let me know and i willcontinue to get you more information for you
nstructions
  1. Step 1 Calibrate the screen of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the touch screen does not seem to respond when you hit it with your finger or a stylus, you may need to calibrate it. To do this, turn the unit off and then hold down the "Power" key for approximately one minute. You will see a calibration screen come up that will recalibrate the GPS2_bing.gif unit.
  2. Step 2 Reset the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If your GPS unit is not responding or is stuck on a particular screen, it may need to be reset in order to operate. To reset, remove the face plate of the unit by gently prying it off. Locate the "Reset" button under the face plate and press down in order to restart the device.
  3. Step 3 Change the fuse of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the fuse blows on the GPS, you will need to make a replacement using an ACG/3AG 2 amp fuse. Unscrew the adapter cord at the end and remove the fuse found there. Put in the new fuse to see if this returns function to the unit.
  4. Step 4 Update the software for your Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the GPS is not providing you with correct directional information, you may need to update the software or download new maps onto the device. Connect the Garmin StreetPilot C340 with the USB cord to your PC and log on the Garmin website for available updates.

StreetPilot c340 will not turn off


Have you tried a hardware RESET? The button is hidden behind the front panel, which snaps off by a fingernail slot located directly under the GARMIN logo on the front panel.

* Use caution removing and reinstalling the front panel... it's somewhat fragile... wiggle it a little to get it off.

Press where it says "Press to Reset", hold for a second or two. Charge the unit with the car cord or USB cable, then try to turn it on again.

Once you can get teh unit to (hopefully) turn ON, you should run all updates (there may be several!) using Garmin's Webupdater. (Connect to computer with USB cable first.)

Hope this helps!!

Updating my gps


Have you installed the GARMIN USB device drivers on your computer?

Without this, the computer won't know how to communicate with the GARMIN unit.

This is a link to the download page HERE
...or navigate to it from HERE

When installing the USB drivers, disconnect the GARMIN unit from your PC, then wait until the installer says to connect it.

Display problem


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.
