SOURCE: my streetpilot c330 won"t shut off.

IT'S CALLED A FROZEN SCREEN...

2 OPTIONS

ONE, RESET IT !!! (See resetting instructions below)

TWO, let the battery die out!

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

that usaully happens when the battery is low...try charging it up for a few hours via the usb connector..or the car or home charger, what ever you have handy

its possible its not taking a charge though...hook it up to either the home or car charger to check the charging, it wont show if the usb is connected.

Change MMSI number ? simrad rd 68


Hi!

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but according to the Owners Manual for this unit:
http://www.busse-yachtshop.de/pdf/simrad-rd68.pdf (Page 6),
to erase a previously entered MMSI, the radio must be sent to a Simrad authorized dealer. I suppose this feature was put into effect to cut down on stolen Simrad products.

Hope this is helpful, sorry I couldn't do more for you.

My plotter seems not to output NMEA to my DSC radio and auto helm


Your plotter can talk to you Radio and your pilot. It sounds like one of two things.You must go into the system setup menu and turn on the nmea sentances. You will need to turn on RMB, RMC, GGl at least. You can turn on all the sentances if you like it does not matter. If this does not fix, check color of wiring is correct. Remember you have to go from NMEA + out (on plotter) to NMEA + IN on Radio.Then you need NMEA - out(on Plotter) to NMEA - IN on Radio.
You can look at the sentances wirth a multi meter coming out of your plotter. You put meter in DCV and connect across the NMEA out lines. You will see the meter move every second or so as it send a sentance.

My street pilot c330 wont power up


I am continually amazed by how many people list there problems with only the barest of explanation. How on earth do you expect a reasonably informative answer when your total description of the problem is "my street pilot c330 wont power up"? OK, so tell us more! Did it work just fine until one day it stopped? Did you let it sit for 6 months and when you plugged it in again... nothing? Did you check the fuse in the power cord? Oh, you didn't know there was a fuse there? Read the book! If you want help from me, kindly describe in a bit more detail just exactly what the problem is, a bit of history of what, if anything, led up to the problem, etc.!!!

Auto shut down screen does appear when ignition is turned off


This is telling me that your cigarette lighter socket has +12VDC applied to it all the time EVEN when the ignition is turned OFF. This is not the fault of your Nuvi. On some cars, like Hondas, the cigarette lighter socket powers off when your ignition is turned off.

If you want it to turn off with the ignition, then you will have to power it from a +12VDC source that is controlled by the ignition.
