Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Keypad malfunction Keypad not responding to what I touch. Example: when attempting to spell a city, if I touch the S the GPS types a D, if I type an J it will type a F then the screen automatically goes to Search All Cities and freezes there. (If I touch A thru G it does nothing). When it first comes on and I press View Map it takes me to the category screen. I've tried resetting it but that doesn't work. Please help.

You need to try and calibrate the screen. Turn on the unit and keep your finger on the power button. After 30-40 seconds the calibration screen will come on, release the power button and follow the instruction of touching the while dot as it moves around the screen. Once thisw is done your touch screen should work.

The screen on your model is a touch screen. There is a micro transparent membrane in the screen that is sensed using an X-Y scan. The sensing circuits have an intrepretor circuit that is run by software command from the uPC to know the location of the touch pressure in order to decode what the command is. There can be a fault anwhere along this path that can cause what you are describing.

If the unit is under warranty, you can send it in for service at little or no cost depending on the terms of the warranty. If the unit is out of waranty, there will be a cost to service it.

Trying to type in an address on my 1st gps.


Hello,

2. Change the state, the country, or the province, if necessary.
3. Touch Search All. If you know the city, touch Spell City, enter the city/postal code, and touch Done. Select the city/postal code in the list. (Not all map data provides postal code searching.)
4. Enter the number of the address, and touch Done.
5. Enter the street name, and touch Done.

Garmin will not recognize destination


How are you entering it? You should go to "Where to?", "Address", then "Spell State/Province". Enter "On" and the unit should pull up "Ontario". Press this, then press "Spell City/Postal Code". Type "Ot" and the unit should pull up several cities, including "Ottawa, ON" Press this, then enter the rest of the address. Let me know if this helps.

When I go to spell a state, the screen goes immediately to the Select State Screen. It will not allow me to spell the state.


When you type a stae it will automatically show the list of states you can scroll down to check if the states is in the list or if the states is not recognize try to check the region make sure your in lower 48 states.

Can you tell me how to access the front touch-screen full-keypad?


You can only have the front screen touch keypad when you touch twice (double click) in the area where you want to type. (for example when you browse on the internet, text messaging or adding contacts). If you can't use the touch keypad the phone will tell you (for example in MSN messenger, you have to work with the keypad inside the phone).
