The display has hosizontal lines and/or lines with missing content. Hardly readable. Anything to be fixed?

This is an indication of a bad display driver IC, it is better to just replace the unit as you probably will not be able to get parts for this unit.

My garmin nuvi 360 says "updatin ps software 0%" on start up and then won't be able to acquire satellites

This indicates that there is a problem with the flip-up antenna/GPS receiver assembly and there is no communication between the main board and the GPS receiver IC. When this happens, you won't be able to pick up satellite reception.

The main board is trying to upload a fresh copy of the GPS firmware stored on your Nuvi but it fails because of the problem in the GPS receiver assembly.

M402 didnt receive the gps signal transmitted by garmin 72 via nmea 2.0

Check the wiring again. Installing my M422 needed to switch the polarity of the NEMA input from my GPS75. May be similar problem

Your Garmin is not charging then it is a loose contact or cold solder in charging socket. That is the common problem of socket you must re works the solder there or bring it to a cellphone repair if you are not electronically enclined. If re solder does not fix then problem is in the charging IC. Replaced this IC so it will charged again.

Good luck:

Chartplotter (Garmin 450s) won't talk to VHF DSC radio (Icom IC M

As advised, reset to factory settings. Then re-entered custom settings as required. Seems OK now. Many thanks.

Garmin 50 forerunner failure

It sounds to me as you are having the problem with faulty contacts. They should be cleaned and checked for stiffness- if too weak must be replaced.
The next possible cause can be integrated circuit (IC) failure. In this case only skilled watchmaker can help you and that gonna be costly.
