I had no problems with it all day as I traveled through Lancaster PA, however, when I started home, about 10 miles from destination, the system shut itself off. I turned it back on, however, it kept shutting back off. Now I am unable to get it charged. I took the from off and pushed the reset button, but it still will not charge. I don't know what else to do. Please assist. Wina Patey
Sounds like your battery died and there's no juice to it. When the battery is low, the unit shuts itself off and has a hard time starting up. If possible, try plugging in your unit with a USB cable from the computer and leave the computer on for a few hours and see if that doesn't solve the problem. When in the car, sometimes the cigarette lighter socket comes loose.
Regarding your i3, the USB drivers must be loaded BEFORE you connect your garmin. If you do not have your USB drivers, you can download them from:
Also, why would you need to upload maps? The i3 comes pre-loaded.

The Garmin C340 comes preloaded with maps while the I3 require that the maps be installed onto a micro sd card.
You can place the micro SD card into a SD adapter and use a regular card reader to download your maps. When the software ask for 'Device' to download to use the drop down arrow and find your drive letter associated with the card reader. Using a card reader will be much faster since the it is ubs 2.0 vs ubs 1.1
You could also go to Garmin website and download and install the USB drivers, see link below.

Hi had a similar problem with a GPS. I had to give it in for service. As it turned out, the power inverter board had to be changed. The cost of the repair was about 1/2 the price of a new one.
My GPS was cutting in and out at times. I finaly died and would not start at all.
