Question about Garmin GPS Devices

2 Answers

We used our Garmin C330 but forgot to plug it in so the message low battery came up before we realized it wasn't plugged in. Is the battery done and can it be replaced? We thought the battery would recharge once it was plugged in but that isn't happening.

    The manual for the StreetPilot c330 does not show how to replace the battery. Are you sure the battery can be replaced?

My Garmin street pilot C330 was purchased about 2 years ago. Lately, it has begun giving a message, Low battery. I have had to charged it up on my computer 2 times in the last 2 weeks. What is the problem?...


2 years is generally about it for the battery on the C330.
You most likely need a new battery.
Charging it on or off does not matter.
Run it with the back light on a dimmer mode to increase battery life for now.

C330 indicates low battery although plugged into charger


The internal lithium ion battery is not user replaceable. You will need to have the unit serviced by Garmin.

Black Screen to no power


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

I have a garmin c330 it wont turn on period tried to reset nothing ?


You have to plug it into your computer using the USB cable and leave it there for a few hours. The battery is too low and the unit uses more power than it gets from the car charger.

Garmin c330 battery replacement


The 3 wires are because the unit has a pcb on the battery which prevents over charging or shuts it off if the voltage falls too low. You can either use the pcb which is attached to the outside of the original battery (cut off the unit and reattach to the new battery with electrical tape) then solder the red and black wires to the appropriate Garmin wires or order a battery with built in pcb, If you do this, the green wire is not used, just solder the red and black wires from the plug-in connector to the new battery. It worked on my C330.
