Question about Garmin StreetPilot c340 GPS Receiver

My Garmin c340 turns on then shuts off even when plugged in

I've had it for almost a year and it's been fabulous until five days ago.  It had a full charge, was plugged in, but now, won't turn on.  Any ideas?   Thanks, Acequia

I have had the same problem. When I connect my unit to my computer through the USB I can get it to turn on. I already tried to do a reset and that didn't work. I am going to try to replace the battery next. If that doesn't work, I guess I will need to buy a new GPS since my unit is 1 1/2 yrs old and out of warranty.

Remove the faceplate (should be able to do this with your fingernail). On the right of the unit you will see a reset button. Press and hold for about 10 seconds and then try to power the unit on again.

    I have had mine for about 3 years and got great service from it. But now it either doesnt turn on or it turns on and then shuts down within about 20 seconds. I need to know if there is a quick fix otherwise I will buy a new GPS.

Garmin is unresponsive. Won't power up or turn


I have a Garmin c340 that would not turn on.
I found the hidden reset button and it works now.

With the display unit facing you, the aluminum cover plate has the the word GARMIN on it. Use you fingernail under the word Garmin and the cover plate comes off. The left part of the cover stays attached to GPS and the right side lifts up exposing the RESET button. I pressed RESET and POWER together and it works now.

2 Garmins, BOTH shut off right after they are turned on


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

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 went black and can't get it working


The battery was completely dead. I must not have had the cord plugged in to my lighter, or maybe it wasn't sitting properly on the cradle, and it was running on battery power. I found that when I charged it by the computer, it was ok. It is working with no problems, now.

Garmin 340 streetpilot won't even turn on?


I had the same issue with mine during a trip. Probably needs to be reset. See page 31 of the users manual on Resetting your c340. Once I did this it worked fine.

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.
