    I'm new to this forum, so if this post is in the wrong place or if this issue has already been covered in a previous thread please forgive me.

    Being a C330 owner for a couple weeks now, I've come to realize that the manual is not very in-depth and sometimes omit features that the unit is capable of doing.
    For example ...
    1) POI can be seen as you travel (only) in browse map mode.
    2) You can save your current location by the following keys [Menu-Where To-Browse map-Info-Save]

    Are there any other nuggets to find on this unit that's not listed in the manual. Please post your finds.

    Hey everyone,

    please just use this topic for...

    UNDOCUMENTED FEATURES.

    If you have another type of question/comment, it should go in another thread. Thanks.

    Im a new C330 owner and happy so far. Will the C330 display ELEVATION ?? If not, will the C530 display elevation??
    Perhaps there is a method in the "innards" that this can be accomplished.
    tnx....K7EGI

    Guys,

    I have c330 w/o SD slot. From what I understood here, the current map (CS NA v6) is sitting over the basemap. Is this correct? Does anybody now how to upload an img files to c330? I've tried IMG2GPS but it said that there is no memory left. Does anybody now how to erase the current map in the c330 so I could load another map?

    Cheers,

    I have a problem wih my c320, when I try to enter route it starts calculation and gives error message "Route Waypoint Memory Full". I've read that a solution to this problem is to make master reset (hard reset) but the instructions on how to do it doesn't work. I've tried to hold bottom right corner of the screen while powering on the device, tried to do so on batteries and on car charger, i've tried to press another sections of the screens and nothing happens. I have the latest 5.7 firmware and I am able to enter calibration and those hidden menus (batteries & moving avg) but I can't get the unit to master reset itself.

    Any suggestions?

    Blaster,

    Before you do anything drastic, pop the the plastic ring frame from around the touch screen and press the reset button and try start up again. I do not know the symtoms of a bad battery, so you might check the charge level if you can.

    Post your results.

    I have a problem with my Garmin C320.

    I perform a hard reset by holding the right lower corner and pressing the power button. After 30secs I get connect the dots test and after that the screen is white. I have placed it under a blue sky and nothing happens after 40 - 60 minutes. Still shows white.

    Does anyone know if the unit should have a white screen or does it log into the unit and display the main menu?

    I have had a Garmin StreetPilot 2730 for over a year now. My mother-in-law just picked up a Garmin C330, but I haven't seen it. They are going to stop in some day and want me to customize it for them. I have a number of POI files that I will try to load up for them with the PoiLoader. I also will try to help them with Favorites that they can create. I think it will be like the 2730 and I can have 16 categories of favorites. Are there any other things that I should be looking at for the C330? Are there any un-official guides or tips that I should pass along? Also, she doesn't seem real keen on the windshield mount. Is a bean bag mount available for this?

    RedRover1,
    demo mode in the devices can be 2 kinds:
    1. If user entered DEMO unlock code and transferred maps to the device. It can be cured by flashing another maps without demo code (delete code in Mapsource).
    2. Demo unit made by garmin. Ususally these units are refurbished old broken units, with water on motherboards, strange gps-chip behaviour. So, garmin turns off gps-chip, flashes demo-version of the firmware, and put this unit to the stocks for DEMO purposes, assuming that these units really for demo.
    But sellers may be want to sell everything... So, sometimes devices appeared on ebay.
    This demo device is capable to revert to normal state only with soldering iron (usually), and long firmware replacement (not trivial for usual users, so it's impossible). It useful also for parts to recover some broken units (display, keyboard, buttons, etc..), nothing else.

    Is there any option software or hardware to make it NORMAL?
    I am in real trouble because my wife will kill me if she realizes that I have got a piece of s**t.

    Any help is appreciated,

    If anyone is interested, my c330 froze, and out of frustration I broke it trying to open it and do "what I don't know". Anyway, the front plate came off while I was doing this and under the plate (that says Garmin) is a "reset button". Hopefully, this will save people a lot of frustration.
