Help with Garmin C330 that dosn't seem to know where it's going

Having trouble with this device, it dosn't take me to where I want to go, keeps getting lost and not recognizing places or taking me down dead end roads that don't exist. Have a Tom Tom too and tried it against that but the Tom Tom gets me there every time, no problems. Can anyone advise what is the problem with the Garmin, which I bought as heard they were the best make. Anyone have any advise what I should do.

    Takes me extremely out of the way, like going in a square 3 miles when I could've turned left for 10 blocks. It repeats the same error. Changes destinations while driving and will take you around the world to go around the block.

Why are there no coordinates(log/lat) availleble in my c330?

If you want to see what features are available in the Garmin GPS units, you can go to and see a side-by-side comparison. The C330 was not the top of the line unit even before it was discontinued and does not have all the features of today's units. Regardless, you still should have been able to see a map of where you were and give local street names/numbers to your son.

Garmin C330 keeps shutting off

There is a fuse inside the (cigar lighter) plug on most units.
You unscrew the tip to pop out the fuse.
There is a very thin wire inside the fuse that you can see
if you look close. It should still be intact. If not, replace it.

Here is the manual for your unit page 29 shows the info you are looking for:

Unable to Track Satellites

My garmin will idle after turning it on "aquiring satelites", after awhile it will give me the white screen "trouble tracking satelites, are you indoors now?" answer "no"when the garmin asks you if you are in a particular state answer "no". It works for me everytime, don't know why, just that it works to lie sometimes.

What are you trying to update, firmware or maps? Firmware updates ae free from Garmin. Just go to and download the WebUpdater. If you are trying to update the maps, these are available for purchase in CD or SD card formats, also from Garmin or your local retailer. They should be approx. $70.
