    I have the EXACT same issue with mine. Happened just yesterday. I tried plugging it into my laptop (via USB on a Mac) to charge it up there (thought maybe my car outlet was bad), but my computer hung as soon as I connected it.

    Dont charge using the PC. Takes too much power unless you have a powered HUB. I have to disconnect all USB ports to update the software.

C340 will not come on by battery or plugged into car. Could the lithium-ion battery be bad, if so how do I replace?


Hi,
Try pulling the face off and resetting it,
If it will not reset, work in the car or the house,
The battery need's replacing.
If your savvy (soldering), Ebay for battery,
or Garmin Around $100

GPS StreetPilot c340 quit working


Plug charger in, and then reset it. Let it charge for awhile before tryng to use it though. It sounds like the battery is very very low. When it is plugged in it still will not operate unless the battery has some charge in it. I hope this helps.

I had the same problem. Found out that the fuse had blown in the power cord. I bought a new fuse from radio shack and have not had the low battery since.

Not charging


If it won't turn on even when plugged into your car then it probably is the car adapter. Check the fuse. It is located in the tip of car adapter which can unscrew.

Charging unit with AC adapter


I have a 100v A/C power / charger unit for my garmin C340 GPS that I use to charge my Garmin's battery every day. I can use thj adapter to run the GPS, or just turn it off and let it charge the GPS. But it connects dirctly to the Garmin GPS unit, not to the cradle like the Cigarrette lighter unit does. .

Garmin c340 gps freezes up


Avoid buying Garmin GPS. Their units have a non user replaceable battery that last about 2 years. After that, you have to send the unit to Garmin to replace the battery and be hit with at least $150 plus shipping. Possibly more if they need to fine tune something else. Look at other brands with easier battery replacement such as Sony, Navigon, etc. Garmin is a total rip off.

C340


I had the same problem recently... What I did was open the front casing and hit the reset button under the cover, then it turned on while plugged into the car adapter.
