Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver

Garmin C340 I changed the battery on my C340 with one from ebay. It came with one more wire than the old one. When connected it powers up, charges but cannot locate satellites? Bill

    I had tried the hard reset. Not sure why it took so long for it to find the satellites? My thoughts now is that it was trying to figure out the transplant of the new battery.

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!!

C340 will not come on by battery or plugged into car. Could the lithium-ion battery be bad, if so how do I replace?


Hi,
Try pulling the face off and resetting it,
If it will not reset, work in the car or the house,
The battery need's replacing.
If your savvy (soldering), Ebay for battery,
or Garmin Around $100

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.

Charging unit with AC adapter


I have a 100v A/C power / charger unit for my garmin C340 GPS that I use to charge my Garmin's battery every day. I can use thj adapter to run the GPS, or just turn it off and let it charge the GPS. But it connects dirctly to the Garmin GPS unit, not to the cradle like the Cigarrette lighter unit does. .

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.
