Why does my c340 keep losing satellite reception


Hello there:
please follow these instruction and this should help if not let me know and i willcontinue to get you more information for you
nstructions
  1. Step 1 Calibrate the screen of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the touch screen does not seem to respond when you hit it with your finger or a stylus, you may need to calibrate it. To do this, turn the unit off and then hold down the "Power" key for approximately one minute. You will see a calibration screen come up that will recalibrate the GPS2_bing.gif unit.
  2. Step 2 Reset the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If your GPS unit is not responding or is stuck on a particular screen, it may need to be reset in order to operate. To reset, remove the face plate of the unit by gently prying it off. Locate the "Reset" button under the face plate and press down in order to restart the device.
  3. Step 3 Change the fuse of the Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the fuse blows on the GPS, you will need to make a replacement using an ACG/3AG 2 amp fuse. Unscrew the adapter cord at the end and remove the fuse found there. Put in the new fuse to see if this returns function to the unit.
  4. Step 4 Update the software for your Garmin StreetPilot C340. If the GPS is not providing you with correct directional information, you may need to update the software or download new maps onto the device. Connect the Garmin StreetPilot C340 with the USB cord to your PC and log on the Garmin website for available updates.

The screen on my Garmin Street Pilot C340 is frozen


I read the manual. There is a reset button underneath the plastic cover surrounding the screen (pry off w/ your thumb) -- push the reset if the power can't be turned off otherwise.

As I was driving and using my garmin, changing from my route to "detour" and back the screen froze (80 minutes ago). Since I tried to turn off (using power switch) and I also unplugged. Garmin remains in...


Try resetting the unit. Remove the faceplate (there is an indentation at the top) and press the Reset button on the right side of the unit. If this does not help, there is a Master Reset, but it WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES. If you have to do this, press and hold the bottom right of the screen and press the power button until the unit resets.

My Garmin C340 froze up. can't shut off and touch screen does not


Have you tried a hard reset? Take off the silver trim ring around the screen by hooking a fingernail under it above the screen and lifting it off. There's a reset button at the side of the screen. Press that for a few seconds and it should re-boot the unit.

Street Pilot c340 froze up


I had the same problem, the face plates comes off by sticking your finger nail under the little notch under the garmin symbol and pich off the thin face plate, there is a reset button under the face plate in the middle of the right hand side of the edge of the face plate( visible when the face plate is dislodged. I held the button in for a second or two, you can feel the button recess as you push down on it) and the unit resets without disturbing the existing programed route

with the garmin off, hold down the right bottom of the screen and turn the garmin on, it will then ask you if you want to perform a hard reset. Choose yes and that should fix your problem.

Will not turn on


Champ...If your 340 stops responding, try turning it off and back on.If this does not help, reset the 340.

1.Unplug the power and the usb cables to remove external power.
2.Place your thumbnail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the faceplate and gently pull off the faceplate.
3.Press the reset button for about 3 seconds.
4.Connect the 340 to a power source using power cable. The 340 should automatically turn back on and operate normally.
Good Luck ... Ginny
