That usaully happens when the battery is low...try charging it up for a few hours via the usb connector..or the car or home charger, what ever you have handy

its possible its not taking a charge though...hook it up to either the home or car charger to check the charging, it wont show if the usb is connected.

Garmin is unresponsive. Won't power up or turn


I have a Garmin c340 that would not turn on.
I found the hidden reset button and it works now.

With the display unit facing you, the aluminum cover plate has the the word GARMIN on it. Use you fingernail under the word Garmin and the cover plate comes off. The left part of the cover stays attached to GPS and the right side lifts up exposing the RESET button. I pressed RESET and POWER together and it works now.

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.

My Garmin StreetPilot c340 is frozen.


No.......the C340 STREET PILOT has a hidden reset button. Put your fingernail in the slot just under the GARMIN name on the front face plate. Gently pull the face plate outward. Don't take it all the way off. The reset button is on the right side of the front screen just under this plate. Use a pointed object and hold the button IN for 3 seconds and unit will turn off. When you power it back up it will REBOOT.

Street Pilot c340 froze up


I had the same problem, the face plates comes off by sticking your finger nail under the little notch under the garmin symbol and pich off the thin face plate, there is a reset button under the face plate in the middle of the right hand side of the edge of the face plate( visible when the face plate is dislodged. I held the button in for a second or two, you can feel the button recess as you push down on it) and the unit resets without disturbing the existing programed route

Display image has shifted, difficult to use


ok, first you will have to unplug the power and usb cables to remove external power. Secondly, place your thumbnail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the face plate and gently pull off the face plate. Next, press the reset button for three seconds. Finally, connect the c330 to a power source using the power cable. the c330 should automatically turn back on and operate normally.

Please rate my response and have a wonderful nite.

Garmin c330 GPS


Hello, I have had 7 Garmin units and 4 of them where streetpilots like yours.
You can try a reset of the unit. This will restore the unit and you might loose any favorites etc that you have stored. Here's how you do a reset.
"With the unit off, place your thumbnail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the face plate, gently pull off the face place. Press the reset button and turn the unit back on."
Try this and see how the unit works. If it still gives you the same problem then your unit needs repair. I have sent in at least 2 units to Garmin for repair in the last 2 years.
Thanks

Dropped the system everything working but will allow me to go to the map screen


Did you try to reset the unit? Place you thumbnail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the face plate. Gently pull off the face plate. Press the reset button. Turn the unit back on and see if it works - Of course replace the face plate carefully. Good luck! Dr. Know
