Question about Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS Receiver
Help My garmin died. First the battery, (I have a new one on order) then the signal died. I opened it up and there isn't anything loose. Can an antenna just go bad? Could this somehow be connected to a bad battery?
This how the antenna should be installed

My battery died also.... garmin says you have to send it back to them and if the warrantee is out, it is a flat fee of $150.00
I just went to you-do-it electronics in Needhan, MA they are on the internet. I ordered the battery (special Order) for $36.00 the unit opens fine and the battery comes out. the new battery has the open wires to resolder to the 2 speakers. so it is duabale. I have to wait 4-5 days for shipping.

When you opened the GPS to check the battery there's a plate under the covers that keeps you from opening the unit all the way, because of the wires. Make sure you place that plate back in the correct location, because that's the antenna. It should be at an angle inside the top of the cover.

It is very unlikely that the antenna has just gone bad when you opened up the gps unit did you notice if the battery had started leaking if so to what extent the electrolytes that leak from batteries is very corrosive and can destroy pcb's in no time at all if the battery was ok then it should just be a case of fitting the new battery gps systems can take up to five minutes to track satellites
