C340 The battery in my Garmin c340 went dead. I purchased a battery from the internet and it said it fit the c340 When it came it has one more wire coming from the battery than the old one. It has a red,black and green wire coming from the battery to the plug in. The old battery had one red and one black coming from the battery to the plug in. I installed the new one and it powers up but now it will not find the satellites? Help!!!

    I used the advice of other posters on the site and let it set on the deck for about 2 hours. It did find the satellites and loaded the maps.



    Thank's to all who helped.

First, be sure you are outside, in the open when making this diagnosis. If, when outside in clear view, you still have problems, try this...

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 the 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!!

If your savvy (soldering), Ebay for battery,

My Garmin C340 is dead!!!!


I had the same problem on a trip. Required two fixes and once I did this the unit worked fine.
1. Replace the fuse in the car adapter (reason it wasn't charging when I used it in the car).
2. See the users manual on page 31 regarding resetting your C340.

Dead Garmin StreetPilot c340


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.

It still should be under the one year warranty with Garmin. Call Garmin support and get a RMA.

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.

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.
