Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Powerless garmin I have a garmin streetpilot c330 that I bought about 18 months ago. Last week when I went to use it, the unit would not power up, either by battery power nor power cord in my car. The unit is completely dead. I tried resetting it after taking the faceplate off but that did not work .Any suggestions? I would appreciate your help. Thank you.

When leaving the unit not powered up for so long, the internal battery may be damaged. The power supply will not start up if the internal battery is defective.

Sometimes the internal power supply may become defective in this case and must be replaced along with the battery. Contact the manufacture for details about how to get the unit serviced.

The unit will not turn on, even when plugged into a power source. Unit was working fine a week ago. Garmin Streetpilot C330.


Have you checked the fuses in the power cable? There is a reset button under the front bezel. Try pressing that to see if your unit comes back to life too.

Need an auto charger for my Garmin StreetPilot c330


You can find an auto power cord adaptor for about $10.00 on E-bay. I got a replacement cord about 2 months ago.

2 Garmins, BOTH shut off right after they are turned on


Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers

Nuvi 205w LCD screen replacement needed.


Your only reasonable solutions are:

1) Send it back to Garmin for repair, which will probably cost you more than the unit is worth, or...

2) Check CraigsList or other places for good deals. The prices on these things have been in nose-dive mode for months and you're liable to find a very good deal for very little money. (I just bought a StreetPilot C330 for $50 from CraigsList last week.)

Had the same problem. Called Support. They answered immediately - a HUMAN, no recording, speaking American English - walked me through some tests, diagnosed a defective battery, gave me info on returning unit, I had it back in a flash. This is a classy outfit, and the Garmin C330 is a superb piece of equipment, has been flawless since.

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

Can't sign-in at My Garmin


The problem must have been a glitch on the Garmin website. Tried to sign-in today and it worked OK.

Old map installed in new unite


I googled garmin c330 software update and went to a garmin site for this same purpose. I had no problem getting a current update (within the last year) and at no charge. There is also a user forum that is very informative. I travel extensively and have used mine for a year now. I wish I had bought it sooner Ray
