Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

GPS GARMIN C-330

Keeps looking for satilite, and finds it and then looses it again. Very anoying. I heard of one idea on internet is to do a total reset, which loses the data and you have to wait 45 mins. to have the unit find satilite and restore it. Not sure if that will work? any thougjhts on the subject. Thanks, Brian

Purchase an external magnetic antenna for the 330. You can purchase from Best Buy or on line from Garmin.

Can't get a satilite on my Garmin nuvi 1300


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes, or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

My garmin GPS 12 will not pick up and lock on the satilites


Go to the Garmin website and download up to date software for your unit. A new satellite launched in '08 caused some problems, and the update fixes this.
Please come back and let us know if this fixes it.

Garmin c 330 can not find satellits. Also reset button for 3 sec. not helping.


It could be a problem with the software that runs the GPS. Plug your 330 into your PC, go to this link and run the webupdater:

WEBUPDATER

After you update the software, hit the reset button again.

If this doesn't solve your problem, there is an internal hardware failure that can only be repaired at Garmin. You can buy a factory rebuilt model for about the same price as it would cost to repair yours.

Garmin 330 street pilot keeps shutting down, only had it 1 year


Have you tried charging the unit on the computer? If not, try doing this for a few hours. Sometimes it can help.
