Question about Garmin StreetPilot c340 GPS Receiver
Just purchased a c340 and I can't get it to find a satellite. I'm in Pittsburgh, PA. Also has the time wrong- it'soff by 10 minutes
First, be sure you are outside, in the open when making this diagnosis. Some cars have metallic defrosting layers, which blocks the GPS signal. Also, first fix when new may take several minutes (5-10 minutes).
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!!
