    I have the same problem with a Garmin 350 GPS which worked well for about 1 year and then it would not connect to the satellite. Is there anyone out there that repairs these units instead of sending them to the factory?

Please read the solution that resolved this problem for someone else. Most likely, you have already tried this.

If the above procedure does not work for you, the entire antenna assembly will need to be replaced.
The other option is to purchase an external antenna for your Nuvi and plug it into the external antenna port (gold connector) on the Nuvi antenna assembly.

Best wishes,

I restarted my Garmin nuvi 265, and it shows that I'm in a different country, which is correct and the right state I'm in. Although, it still shows no satellite connection, so I can't access the street I'm...

If your 265W was bought in the US, then taken to another country.... until those MAPS are downloaded, the satellite way connect, but since it cannot locate you, it may just show you the 1st error message in the CPU. Download that country's maps.

Acquiring satellites

The problem might be that your GPS is not able to connect to the satellite.
I'll see what the problem might be.

I just bought my garmin nuvi 255w about two weeks ago. This last weekend we used it to go down to New Glarus, WI. In our route a section South of where you turn onto US23 it does not reconnize and keeps on...

Unfortunately there is always a delay between roads getting built and maps getting updated, verified, and finally into products in the shops. On top of all that, the nuvi 255w is a model which has been available for a while now, so if the store had your example lying in stock for a number of months it may also have spent a few months before that in a warehouse before supply to the retailer. Your 18 month to 2 years may sound plenty of time to ensure that your unit has the latest mapping, but in reality it may effectively be the best part of a whole year less.

Garmin recognise that this is a problem so have the "nuMaps Guarantee program". If you buy a new nuvi and register the product within 60 days of it first being turned on and acquiring a satellite signal, you will be offered one free map update subject to simple conditions. To find out what they are, click here.

I hope that my answer has been of use; please take a moment to rate my reply.

My wife's Nuvi 350 will power on, start loading maps, then shut down (stays on for a total of 18 seconds). It's only 2 years old.

If its not connected to an external power source, then your battery is shot.

Should not do this when connected to an external power souce like the DC car charger or AC wall charger.
