Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

Why can't update the firmware of streetpilot C330 ?

My c330 software version: 2.40
unit id: 3137872074
audio version: 2.10

when I tried to upgrade my software version to 6.0, I got a message saying no updates availabe for my device. also tried webfolder, same message.

what is the problem? can I manually upgrade the firmware?

I also notice in my location, it said "return to rental facility" instead of "going home", does it mean it is a special version for car rental companies?
how can I change it to a normal version?
thank you very much.

I have contacted Garmin several times till I got an acceptable answer. Some of the C330 receivers were sold to car rental agencies and contain software version 2.30-2.40. These units cannot be uodated. They are not reconized as a HD letter in "my computer" and mine would not accept a map update.

I would suggest getting in touch with the Garmin tech support. You may have to send the unit back for a hardware fix. There were some issues with new updates in some of their older products.

If the unit is working okay and you see no issues, you may find better value to leave it alone, and over time save up for a newer unit. If you look at their new NUVI series, these are far improved from the generation of the one you presently have.

Garmin c330 update


What are you trying to update, firmware or maps? Firmware updates ae free from Garmin. Just go to www.garmin.com and download the WebUpdater. If you are trying to update the maps, these are available for purchase in CD or SD card formats, also from Garmin or your local retailer. They should be approx. $70.
