The StreetPilot c320 is, we think, Garmin's answer to the TomTom "Go" and the Magellan RM300 . Garmin rates it as a "Beginner's GPS Car Navigator" and in that we agree. The c3x0 ( when we refer below to the c3x0, we are referring to features present in BOTH the c320 and c330 models) is extremely simple to use, easy to input address and other data, and has a limited number of features so as not to confuse people unfamiliar with GPS equipment. What the c320 is NOT is a replacement for the much more "feature rich" StreetPilot 26x0 models. The c320 offers a simple to operate, capable car navigator with the essential features of other car navigation units but with few of the "frills, bells and whistles" that many users have come to expect from Garmin. As a comparison, the c320 appears to be competing with the reduced feature set and operational simplicity found in the typical OEM car navigation system. The c330 is essentially the same unit but for the c330 having built in 2.2Gbyte Hard Drive for the map memory so the user has no maps to load. The c330 can " operate right out of the box". The new c340 is the same as the c330 with the addition of capability to accept input from Garmin's GTM10 RDS-FM radio receiver so as to be able to automatically route you around road problems in cities where RDS traffic radio is available. The c340 (unique in this group) allows the user to input 3rd party provided CSV files with locations of speed cameras, school zones, and other traffic hazards. The SP c3x0 models now can operate with Garmin's new CUSTOM POI LOADER software.

Note2: As of May 2005, you can install other compatible Garmin CitySelect Maps in the c320 but not in the c330.
Note3: Garmin advises us that coming production models of the c330 (as of about June 2005) will have an SD Slot so that the user CAN load maps other than CitySelect6 on the c330.

Note: Garmin tells us that AT THIS TIME the c330 can ONLY be equipped with USA/CANADA or European maps.
Note: Jack and Joe recommend purchasing the c320, buying a US$75 one gigabyte SD card (or 2gigabyte when available) and load the states you need and enjoy a lower cost plus twice the battery life as compared with the c330. The added flexibility of being able to simultaneously load maps from parts of the USA/Canada, Europe, Australia, South Africa, parts of the Middle East and etc., give the c320 versatility not found in the more expensive c330 at this time.

Putting maps on sd memory card

For C330 owners that want to have both Canada and US 2008 map update on their GPS this is what you have to do.

Must have:
1 - Street pilot C330

2 - 512mb SD card
3 - SD card reader of some form (some cameras will suffice)
4 - Garmin 2008 Map Update North America

What to DO:

1 - connect the GPS to the computer
2 - Insert the Map update disk
3 - Install the Lower 48 states, United States
(Reason - the C330 has around 1000mb of memory and the "US 48 states" map uses around 900mb" while Canada uses 400mb...which is why you will need that 512mb SD card later)

4 - Once the GPS is updated with the US map. Browse the Map update disk contents. This can be done with going to "My Computer" right click on your CD/DVD drive and click on "Explore"

5 - Open the folder called "img"

6 - Copy the file called "gmappromU.img" file is around 430mb. (This is the map file for Canada)

7 - Insert your SD card into your card reader and connect it to your computer. A window should pop up. If not you should see it on your "My Computer"

8 - Once you have navigated your way into the SD card directory. Create a folder on the SD card named "garmin" (no caps)

9 - Go into your newly created "garmin" folder right click and paste the "gmappromU.img" file. (This may take upto 20 to 30 mins)

10 - Once the process is complete, Rename the "gmappromU.img" file to --> "gmapsupp.img" (watch for spelling, no caps at all)

11 - Remove the SD card, Turn off your GPS, Insert SD card into GPS.

12 - Turn on GPS, let it load, and there you have it, the FULL North America Map.

When you are searching a state or province (depending where you are located) it will give you an option which map to use, Canada/Alaska or the lower 48 US states. Select your map and you are set to Go.

My garmin 330 doesn't show maps

Did this problem occured after trying to install an update?

Try doing a hard reset on the Garmin

First remove the faceplate from the Garmin C330. To accomplish this there is a small indentation under the word Garmin where you can get a finger nail in and pop the faceplate off. On the right side of the unit is a reset button.
