Garmin gps I have a garmin gps (street pilot c340) that is not turning on whether charged completely or not . It has not been damaged or dropped and is always kept in the glove compartment of my car.

    Ok, so how do I get the battery working properly. Or do I need it repaired. Is there somewhere I can take it to work properly. Or leave it out to air in room temperature to see if it may work...

    My Garmin 760 will not power on. I've tried leaving it on the pc hookup, on the car charger and on the dc charger. What else can I try?

    my street pilot c340 is about 2 years old.  It has worked perfectly until a week ago.  While plugged in to  my truck's 12v receptacle, I push the on button and it flashes on for abot two seconds.  If I hold the on button, the screen lights up, but as soon as I release the button, the screen goes black.  I have charged it for four hours.  Any ideas?

Thanks moocows1 !!

The reset did it. To take the front frame off, insert a fingernail in a notch at the top center of the display frame.

Keeping the unit in the glove compartment is not a good idea, for a couple of reasons. If anyone suspects you have the unit, the glove box is the first place they will look. Secondly, it gets very hot/cold in the glove compartment, depending on the ambient temperature. It is not good for the unit, or the battery, to be subjected to extremes in temperatures. It is possible the battery is no longer working properly as a result.

    Give the unit time to reach room temperature and try it again. If it still doesn't function properly, you should contact Garmin about replacing the battery.

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

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.

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.
