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.

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.

The city has the same four letters as another city and keeps coming up with the same wrong city. I type in Aust for Austintown but it immediately goes to another city that begins with Aust and I don't know...


ONLY TYPE IN AUS THEN SEARCH IT SHOULD LIST ALL WORDS STARTING WITH THE LETTERS YOU PUT IN, IF THAT DOES NOT WORK THEN ITS PROBERLY YOU NEED TO CHANGE COUNTRY OR STATE, OR AUSTIN TOWN IS NOT IN THE UNIT, GO TO 2 D VIEW AND ZOOM OUT OVER THE AREA THE PLACE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AND SEE IF IT THERE, IF SO CHECK SPELLING OR PLACE ARROW ON LOCATION YOU WANT AND PRESS GO

How do I space things out when doing addresses


If you are asking how to space things such as state names, etc., there is a blank key on the keypad when you are entering addresses. This is the space key and will put a space between letters. If there is something else you are trying to do, please let me know.

The Research Triangle, commonly referred to as "The Triangle", is a region in the Piedmont of North Carolina in the United States, anchored by the cities of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill.

So which city do you want to go to Raleigh, Durham or Chapel Hill?
