Question about Garmin GPS Devices

1 Answer

We just bought a GPS Streetpilot C340 We are on vacation in Colorado and this is the lst time using it. - we stopped for gas and the last thing we heard was that it was recalculating...We have not been able to turn it back on again. It is totally black screen and it seems dead. I am thinking it should have a reset button on it but can't seem to find it. What should we do to reboot it. Let me know please...

How do you set the time on a c340?


Question: The time is not correct on my StreetPilot. How do I set it?
I think one of these 2 may help you.... --> Answer: The GPS unit acquires the time from satellites. Therefore, to display the correct time, the StreetPilot first needs to acquire satellites. You can then set the time zone and daylight savings time.
To set the time zone and daylight savings time:
  1. Press the Menu button two times.
  2. Select System Setup.
  3. Select the Time tab.
  4. Select the time zone and daylight savings preference.

Why does my c340 keep losing satellite reception


Hello there:
please follow these instruction and this should help if not let me know and i willcontinue to get you more information for you
nstructions
  1. Step 1 Calibrate the screen of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the touch screen does not seem to respond when you hit it with your finger or a stylus, you may need to calibrate it. To do this, turn the unit off and then hold down the "Power" key for approximately one minute. You will see a calibration screen come up that will recalibrate the GPS2_bing.gif unit.
  2. Step 2 Reset the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If your GPS unit is not responding or is stuck on a particular screen, it may need to be reset in order to operate. To reset, remove the face plate of the unit by gently prying it off. Locate the "Reset" button under the face plate and press down in order to restart the device.
  3. Step 3 Change the fuse of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the fuse blows on the GPS, you will need to make a replacement using an ACG/3AG 2 amp fuse. Unscrew the adapter cord at the end and remove the fuse found there. Put in the new fuse to see if this returns function to the unit.
  4. Step 4 Update the software for your Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the GPS is not providing you with correct directional information, you may need to update the software or download new maps onto the device. Connect the Garmin StreetPilot C340 with the USB cord to your PC and log on the Garmin website for available updates.

GPS StreetPilot c340 quit working


Plug charger in, and then reset it. Let it charge for awhile before tryng to use it though. It sounds like the battery is very very low. When it is plugged in it still will not operate unless the battery has some charge in it. I hope this helps.

I had the same problem. Found out that the fuse had blown in the power cord. I bought a new fuse from radio shack and have not had the low battery since.

C340


Try resetting the unit. There is a reset button under the faceplate. Carefully remove the faceplate with the Garmin logo with your fingernail or a knife blade. There is a reset button along the right side. I bought a refurbished C340 and it did the same thing right out of the box. The tech support people where I purchased the unit told me how to reset it.

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. .
