Question about Garmin Nuvi 350 Car GPS Receiver
When plugged into the cig lighter of the truck or my computer, my nuvi shows the word GARMIN and under that, an icon showing a garmin plugged into the back of a computer. TRIED plugging it into the puter, uploaded an update or two, but that didn't fix the problem! Help! Also, it works perfectly on Battery power!
This is not a problem. In fact this is how Garmin designed it.

My recomendation is to use the original accesory for cigarete lighter. I'll give you an example: when I connect my Nuvi 200 to any other USB cable (computer or home charger) its behaviour is like you said - it "says" that is connected to a computer and remains in stand by. But when I connect it to cigarette lighter (but note - the original one) the nuvi 200 recognize it as a car power source and works. The battery symbol disappear from screen and it works perfectly. When I turn off the engine or simply unplug the device from cigarette lighter (not from nuvi !) it recognizez that and ask me if I want tu turn it off on remains on on own battery. If I make no option the nuvi will turn off automatically after some seconds. So it recognize perfectly the car adapter and its behaviour is adapted to a car.
