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.

Error message


Install the Garmin City Navigator Cd to your pc and then connect ur garmin to ur pc with the USB cable.
You might have to unlock the maps with information provided with ur garmin like ur unit ID and ur unlock code.
Another possiblity is that ur memory card is gotten corrupted so try installing it on a different micro sd card.
Let us know if u have any luck.

A way around this is to insert the SD Card into the computer (SD Card reader), point the directory to the card and install the maps like that. I had to do that the first time I bought my unit because I couldn't figure it out and got frustrated. So I thought of this easy work-around.

I had this problem and the solution was to get a PCI USB card for my computer. My computer's motherboard didn't properly use USB and the Garmin GPS could never talk to the computer.

You can get a PCI USB card cheaply at nearly any good computer / electronics store, or even on Ebay. Once installed, just plug the USB cable into the socket on the PCI card and try the GPS again.

Either you have a bad micro SD card or you are loading more data than the card can hold.

You will need slightly less than 2GB of memory load load USA and Canada all together at the same time.

You can also try buying an external card reader and instead of loading to the garmin load the map data onto the micro SD card from the reader.

Problem loading maps to ubs card


The i3 comes with a 128MB micro SD card - first can you be more specific as to what you refer to as "not recognized"? Do the usb drivers install correctly and after installation is the i3 recognized by your pc once you hook it up with the USB cable? Is the micro SD card in place? Is it all the way in the slot?
