Open Question

My garmin c340 comes on for a very short time then goes off. Is it trash or can I fix it?

Is fixing the Garmin something I can do or does it need a specialist?

SOURCE: How to take Garmin GPS apart?

The front bezel, the silver grey plastic piece with the Garmin name on it will lift off.  Use a fingernail or a very thin tool to pry and lift it up.  Behind that are 4 phillips head screws.  Remove those and it comes right apart.  Look at the board on the top before taking it all apart to see exactly how it goes back in, it's a tight fight and has to fit just right.

SOURCE: Garmin Street Pilot c340 mount

Try a hard reset using the reset button under the silver trim on the front. Pull off the trim ring by hooking your fingernail under it right below the logo.

If that doesn't work, then take the unit off of the mount for a better look at the contacts. Re-seat the mount onto the unit and see if that helped. If the mount is damaged, consider getting a friction mount instead of the suction cup. For about $40 you'd get new power contacts and a new cord, and the unit would sit on your dash instead of falling off the windshield all the time.

All of this is assuming that the problem occurred suddenly after a fall, and that your battery is still good.

The Garmin Streetpilot C340 is discontinued, so there isn't much support for it. You can find some updates at

But no free map updates.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 750 will not turn on. Any ideas on

Hi Jessica,

Move the on/off power switch to the left and hold it there for at least 30 seconds and see if it comes back on. I know there was a bug in a firmware version that makes the unit "bricked" after a certain date. The only way to fix it if the reset didn't fix it is to disconnect the battery inside, reboot the unit and install the firmware fix.

Garmin won't power on

My unit had the same problem. So I tried this first. With the display unit facing you, the aluminum cover plate has the the word GARMIN on it. Use you fingernail under the word Garmin and the cover plate comes off. The left part of the cover stays attached to GPS and the right side lifts up exposing the RESET button. I pressed RESET and POWER together and it works now. Hope this works for you also.

GPS StreetPilot c340 quit working

Plug charger in, and then reset it. Let it charge for awhile before tryng to use it though. It sounds like the battery is very very low. When it is plugged in it still will not operate unless the battery has some charge in it. I hope this helps.

H ow do i reset my garmin street pilot c340

To reset the Garmin C340 you will need to pull the Bezel off that goes around the screen. There is a reset button under there. Make sure that is what you really want to do before you do it.

Error when downloading map updates

Try using a different website where you can download the maps for free. These should work. If they don't, you might need a software update from the same web site before getting more maps: www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=010-00401-20

My Garmin C340 is dead!!!!

I had the same problem on a trip. Required two fixes and once I did this the unit worked fine.
1. Replace the fuse in the car adapter (reason it wasn't charging when I used it in the car).
2. See the users manual on page 31 regarding resetting your C340.

Garmin c340 gps freezes up

Avoid buying Garmin GPS. Their units have a non user replaceable battery that last about 2 years. After that, you have to send the unit to Garmin to replace the battery and be hit with at least $150 plus shipping. Possibly more if they need to fine tune something else. Look at other brands with easier battery replacement such as Sony, Navigon, etc. Garmin is a total rip off.
