    tried what Silverdragon wrote did not work.GPS keeps saying system software missing. We never had any system software with it. It said it was pre loaded. The only software we have is the upgrade that we ordered that killed the GPS

    We have had D.Sandles and Silverdragon's help but both didn't help.I bought a disk to upgrade and now all it says is System Software Missing. Our GPS won't do anything. This GPS is c330. It worked great until the GPS told us to upgrade. This was pre loaded so when we bought it new all we did was plug it in and it worked.

Hi
many 330's were sold refurbished. I had one - worked perfect then died - this is how I fixed mine - and it works on many - - get a wall plug charger that matches your model - then plug it in for a day. Mine eventually came back. You will need to go to GARMIN web site - download the garmin software -plug the unit into the PC ----- open the upgraded maps and then load it from the pc into the 330..

This is the way it works.

    Have you tried to reset the unit? There are other things to do. Try plugging it in and leaving it plugged in for 4 hours or so even though it isn't working. Set it up like it works and see if it will 'come on line' on it's own. The only other thing I can think of is to send the unit to GARMIN - you can also call GARMIN FREE> the disk must be put on the pc and then transferred to the unit via the mini USB cable. You don't say if you're using he USB cable or not?
    Best of it

  • Remove the faceplate of your Garmin StreetPilot C330 by putting your thumbnail into the space between the logo and the faceplate. The device should be turned off. Lift up to remove the faceplate.
  • 2 Locate the reset button for your Garmin StreetPilot C330. It's located on the right side of the device next to the screen. It's higher up on the device than the power button.
  • 3 Press and hold the reset button that is uncovered by removing the faceplate of your Garmin StreetPilot C330.
  • 4 Snap the faceplate back on and press the power button to turn on your Garmin StreetPilot C330. You can now operate it normally.


  • after the reset you should be able to update the device via usb from the website.

    Try resetting the unit via the reset button, press this button for a couple of seconds and the unit should Boot up, if it doesn't then don't panic, you can hook it up to the USB and hopefully reflash the program back onto the device.
    With the unit off, place your thumbnail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the face plate, gently pull off the face place. Press the reset button and turn the unit back on.


    You need to install the Garmin software, http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00401-10
    http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
    after this you connect up the device to the usb port and download and install the latest firmware, if successful, then you probably won't/don't need to use the DVD anyway.

    Garmin 225. I can't get a GPS signal and have gone through all the correct procedures. Only used it once since I bought it. Now out of warranty and Garmin want £90 to send it away and get it fixed.


    If it is not a poor connection on the aerial then return is the best option as a new/refurbished grade A replacement will be sent to you.

    I purchased a Garmin 1300 abought 45 days ago.put i can't up graded as i did not get a cable with it to up graded on my computer


    You should have got a "mini USB cable" with it for connecting to the computer. If you bought it in a shop, rather than on line, you might be able to go back to the shop and get one.

    Other wise you may have one for some other item as the same cable is used for connecting other items to your computer e.g. external hard drives, some cameras, some camcorders etc. If all else fails you can buy the cable at any computer shop.

    Disk is asking to be formatted - already been in use


    this could be a help to you,first off most,cds, and memory disk,get scratched or worn out,that causes errors or corrupt file readings. so thats why it asked you to format,formating helps clean the drive up,like a tune up on and old car.and if you dont and try to put high grade gas in before the tune up your still going to have the same problem,so in saying you have to put the old one back in,format it. and then put the new one in after you completed formating the old one.good luck,hope that helped you.

    You can download for free the installation disk software from www.garmin.com. You can also download a base map, but may have to buy maps from Garmin for more detailed maps/charts. You may need the serial number of the unit to unlock the maps, this is on a paper sticker under the gps antenna.
