    My screen started showing "battery low"
    It is possible that the power port on the car was not working
    But the unit blanked out and now it will not come back one
    I put it on the computer and I get an indication that the computer recognizes it but the screen will still not come on

    I have 2 Garmin StreetPilot C330's.

    The internal battery on one of the units can be charged through the use of a computer via the usb port but the same unit can not be charged on the docking station inside the vehicle. Although this same unit will function properly as long as it is plugged into the docking station in the vehicle and running off of the vehicle battery.

    The other unit can only be charged from the usb port from a computer and will not run off the vehicle's battery once it is put on the docking station. Therefore the unit will only operate inside the vehicle for the duration of a charge of its internal battery.

    I have a Garmin C330. All of a sudden it froze and I couldn't do anything, couldn't even power it down. I let the battery drain out. But now I can't get it on. Any solutions?

My StreetPilot C330 can't turn on My gps stay close, i can't use it anymore


Your 'custom' lithium battery died. You can try getting a replacement from the internet, but be aware that the battery is not a simple 'plug-n-play'. There are leads that need to be soldered. Then there's the matter of re-initializing the unit. It may or may not work when you do a system reset.

Your best bet is to 'bite-the-bullet' and contact Garmin tech support for an RMA. They'll charge $79 to repair/replace this model.

This situation is common among GPS manufacturers on lower-end units. Best Buy showed me that there are some new units out there (over $500 ) that do have disposable batteries where its easy to change.

Frozen Screen


I had this problem and the only way to solve a frozen screen is to let the unit run out of battery and bring it back to life. Battery will die out on you for 6~8 hours. Once battery is dead you must do the following.

Waking up your c330...

If you left your Garmin c330 on running the battery will have 1% life left. If you turn c330 back on again, it will flash screen for 3 seconds then die, even charging it at this point will not wake it back up. TO BRING IT BACK TO LIFE... plug in the power home or car into Garmin c330. There is a tab in the front Garmin gray frame of your screen. You must take like your fingernails and under the logo "GARMIN" pull the whole gray plastic frame off. Underneath the plastic frame to the right hand side. There is a "RESET" button. Make sure power is plugged in while hitting reset. Your battery should come back to life. Cheers

Dark Screen


The screen uses a CCF like florescent tube and that may be going bad. I don't know if it's replaceable as the screen is one unit with the light built in.

Try to calibrate the touch screen. Push and hold the power button on until you see a white dot on the screen. This is the calibration mode. Touch the dot and another dot will apppear, now touch this dot again, keep doing this until the unit reboot.

If you touch the 1st dot and nothing happens then the digitizer on the LCD is dead. If the unit is still under warranty, get a RMA and return it to Garmin.
