My garmin street pilot 330 will not power on

Hi,
I'm hoping you could offer some suggestions. I have plugged the garmin street pilot 330 into the car cigarette lighter and did everything the same as usual, however, there is no power to the GPS.
Any ideas?

Thanks, Judy

    Using our Garmin c330 it went completely dead. Nothing! We've plugged in other outlets in car with no success. What happened?

I've had a couple of Garmin C330 units and a C340. They're good quality except for the flimsy power plugs. My first one out of the box had a defective plug which made intermittent contact when I plugged it into the lighter. Tightening the knurled nut on the tip of the plug helped somewhat, but didn't fix it completely. It became a non-issue after I bought a friction mount which came with a better cord and plug. The friction mount also stopped the problem of the suction cup constantly falling off the windshield.

Street pilot 330 will not turn on when plugged into car power supply. Poosible battery charge needed?


Does the car charger cord have a fuse in it at the point where it plugs
into the lighter port, a lot of car chargers have a fuse, I can't tell
if your end, the part that goes inside the lighter port has a cap that you unscrew to replace the fuse, and garmin does not show it.

If the car is running, and it does not work, there is something wrong with the car adapter, or the unit at the plug, the battery should not have anything to do with it.

If the battery starts the car the battery is fine.

GARMIN STREET PILOT-330 GPS


Hello KTFORE1,

The Street Pilot 330 comes with both a vehicle power cord and a USB cord for connecting the unit to the computer. If I understand you correctly the GPS isn't getting power from the vehicle power cord. Does the GPS charge if connected to a computer using the USB cable? If so the problem is likely the power cord or cigarette lighter socket you are using. If the GPS doesn't charge from USB port on your computer then the problem is likely the GPS itself.

If you determine that the cable is the source of the problem, check and replace the cable's fuse. You will probably also want to check and replace your vehicle fuses as the circuit that powers the cigarette lighter might have a blown fuse. If replacing the fuses doesn't solve the issue then you might need to replace the power cord.

Best Regards.
Ken

Cracked screen on Garmin street pilot 330


Given the cost of buying a new LCD with touchscreen is about $130 USD + shipping. Your best solution is to sell the existing unit and buy a new Nuvi or recondition C330.

Garmin will repair the unit for $150 and provide the lastest update and map.

Garmin 330 street pilot keeps shutting down. Only 3 mos. old and has been connected to cigarette lighter. What is the problem? I need a manual.


Make sure that you age getting power from the plugin.
Test: With the unit OFF plug adapter into cigarette lighter.
The Garmin should turn on automatically. If it does not,
you are not getting power to the unit. Make sure you have
good connection at the holder.
Generally it powers off by itself because it is not receiving
power from the plug.
