No Product Key to complete Garmin c330 update download
I just purchased the update for my Garmin c330. It is now asking me to "Please enter the Product Key supplied to you with your installation disc." There was no installation disc supplied when purchased in December. Any suggestions other than calling Garmin Monday? Thanks
Re: No Product Key to complete Garmin c330 update...
If you purchased the DVD Update version, the Product Key that they are requesting is on a label on the back of the DVD case that contains the update DVD. If you downloaded the update they were supposed to e-mail you the Product Key.

Register your Garmin at MyGarmin.com - from here Garmin guides you to download the webbrowser plugin to communicate with your Garmin StreetPilot C330 over a USB cable.
When your Garmin StreetPilot C330 is connected through your webbrowser - it will show compatible map updates. These can be ordered on DVD or downloaded.
Note that downloading the map update will take a very long time and requires at least 5 Gb of disk space on your PC/Mac. The internet connection needs to be fast and stable enough to complete the huge download. Otherwise its better to order the update through DVD.
Garmin has released new maps. Most of their units are entitled to a free update if the unit was purchased recently Just a heads up to anyone who recently purchased a C330. According to Garmin's tech support, the map udate 2008 is not free to those of us that recently purchased a C330. Only to those who purchased a C340 and up. Their excuse is that it is a "low end" unit, and also that the memory cannot hold the full US maps on the DVD. Gee, I can purchase the update for $69.99 and load a subset of the maps if I want, according to the person in tech support, but I cannot receive it as a free update. So, apparently buyer beware if you purchase Garmin's "low end" units. You will apparently not be able to receive a free update of maps, even if the unit you buy is already out of date.
If you have lost the product key to your genuine software, and you have previously registered the software or have a proof of purchase, contact the software manufacturer and they will provide you with a new product key.
Sorry, but as guided by Federal laws, FixYa and it's experts do not provide product keys or serial numbers under any circumstances. Any expert that does so can be barred from answering questions. Those asking could have their membership deleted.
You CAN download updated maps. You must first purchase the map updates, usually in the form of a CD from a local retailer or from Garmin. You can also download the manual for the C330 from www.garmin.com.
you will need to install the usb driver which should be located on the 2008 disk. When you attach the gps to your computer it should ask where the usb driver is located. If your dvd drive is (D) click browse and go the disk and find usb driver folder. I have purchased the new 2008 disk and had problems with it freezing on loader loading. I then browsed the disk and downloaded and then was able to get to the maps. I did not install it due to it asking what map I want to download. I wanted the whole thing so needless to say I am taking it back to walmart. I hope this helps.
