Have you tried a hardware RESET? The button is hidden behind the front panel, which snaps off by a fingernail slot located directly under the GARMIN logo on the front panel.

* Use caution removing and reinstalling the front panel... it's somewhat fragile... wiggle it a little to get it off.

Press where it says "Press to Reset", hold for a second or two. Charge the unit with the car cord or USB cable, then try to turn it on again.

Once you can get teh unit to (hopefully) turn ON, you should run all updates (there may be several!) using Garmin's Webupdater. (Connect to computer with USB cable first.)

Hope this helps!!

Garmin Street pilot C340 has always worked. This morning it did not turn on. I relpaced the fuse in cord. Any other ideas?


Try charging it from the WALL charger. The battery inside the unit may not be too great. Try it - over night from the WALL charge -not the PC charger. 8de415c.jpg

The screen on my Garmin Street Pilot C340 is frozen


I read the manual. There is a reset button underneath the plastic cover surrounding the screen (pry off w/ your thumb) -- push the reset if the power can't be turned off otherwise.

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.

You have to pry off the silver-colored faceplate from the unit and you will find a reset button on the right side of the screen. Push this and everything will back to normal.

Garmin street pilot c340 battery appeared low, used USB cable to hook up pilot with my computer but device doesn't appear to turn on, computer cannot locate device on Drivers, can I rechare steet pilot...


I followed the instructions of the Online manual for the Garmin Street Pilot c-340, I removed the faceplate of the Street Pilot and then using my thumb pressed down on the reset button. I then pressed the power on button on the side of the device- the screen lit up, I then plugged one end of the USB cable into my computer and the other end into the device. The information on the screen of the device indicated the Lithium Battery was charging properly.

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. .

The only way to update the maps is to purchase new maps from Garmin and download them via the computer. The 2008 map updates are currently available, and Garmin has told me new maps will be out in a few months.

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.
