Question about Pioneer AVIC-N3 GPS Receiver

Unit will not come

I accidently left my lights on and my battery died. When I got my car restarted, my unit will not come on at all. When I opened the face, there is a red light blinking.

    My deck does the same thing. I got it sent away with Best Buy for service, and when it came back, it doesn't turn on at all now. The only thing that happens is the red LED light flashes under the faceplate. Has anyone fixed this problem?

Check the rear of the unit. This means partial removal of the unit... but that's usually where the fuse will be! (and make sure there isn't also an in-line fuse along the yellow wire around the back somewhere)

If the fuse is definitely fine, then unplug the power to the unit (both red and yellow) for a good 10 minutes. This often "unblocks" some safety shut-offs with some headunits.

Will the garmin nuv GPS 750 Work witout a battery? Using the car power adapter only.


Yes.... You can actually take the battery out of the unit and run the unit on the DC car charger, however once you remove the charger, the unit will die immediately.

C330 does not work


I wouldn't suggest opening your unit, the garmin manual says that once the unit is opened your warranty is void. Have you tried resetting the unit? Here is how you do that:

Battery was low, and unit died. Plugged into back of unit with power cord and unit never came back on.


Try charging it for more than a day and then try again. Of nothing, replace the battery.

Displayed low battery msg then shut off and won't work even with charger


Most likely the battery has died - not just as in out of charge, but has lost the ability to hold a charge at all. This happens to rechargable batteries, and the thing to do is to replace the battery with a new one.

Unfortunately the XNAV3550 has an "integrated" battery, meaning you'd have to open the case (and void your warrenty) to replace it yourself. If the unit is still under warranty, contact Dual for a replacement. If the warranty has expired, then you might (if you're comfortable doing so) open the unit and see if the battery is easily replaceable. Otherwise I'm afraid you're out of luck. :-(

My rental Garmin c330 went mute after 10 minutes.


well if its rental at least you might not have to pay for repairs. it could be the audio chip. But just to ensure that you didnt accidently mute the unit see if the speaker icon has a red X over it and then take it off.

Low battery can also interfere with voice so ensure its fully charged
leaving it in a hot car can also damage chips (we uasually ask if they had fish with it (chips) as heat in cars melts many items incliuding silicon chips.

Magellan 2200T will not accept charge


Well, I am not sure if your problem is the same as mine. My unit stopped working as well after about 1.5 years.

I opened it up, thinking the battery might be a goner. But after opening it up and checking the battery with a voltmeter, it looked good.

On re-connecting the battery, everything worked fine...loose contact maybe? Its been working fine so far.

I turned it on and it lit up and then completely died


Question: Why won't my StreetPilot c3xx power on?
Found on the Garmin web site --> Answer: If your StreetPilot does not power on, or if it turns on then turns off, you can troubleshoot the problem by resetting or charging the unit. The reset is a "soft" reset that you can perform in the car; it restores power to the unit, but it does not remove data.
To reset the unit:
  1. Place the unit in the cradle and roll it backwards slightly to lock it in place.
  2. With the key in the car ignition, turn on the unit or put it in accessory mode.
  3. On the face plate of the unit, put your thumb nail in the groove under the Garmin logo and gently pull off the face plate.
  4. With the face plate removed, press the reset button on the right side.
  5. Turn the unit back on. If the unit still doesn't power on, you may need to charge it.
To charge the unit:
  1. Using the provided USB cable, connect the device to the computer.
  2. Reset the unit (following instructions above).
  3. Keep the device connected to the computer and allow it to charge overnight (7-8 hours).
  4. After charging, unplug the unit and power it on.

Check your battery symbol.
On mine, the battery is dead (or mechanically disconneced inside).
You need to reset the unit by pressing the tiny button on the back.
Problem is that when you remove the unit from the charging stand, the dead battery does not allow you to press the reset button. (Pressing the reset button with no battery cannot reset the unit)

IF you could press the reset button while plugged into the charger, you could get you unit working again. But..alas, the design of the unit prohibits you from doing so.

Chances are if you fix the battery problem, you will have a usable unit again.
