    I have the exact same problem but can't figure out how to start it in maintenance mode like you said to do. How do I do that?

    I have exact the same problem, and I did go into the maintenance mode and cleaned up everything, but it still doesn't work.

    Well, the map , City Navigator North America NT2009, is checked, but still. Is that possible the map expired so that I can't search for address anymore? If so, that sucks~

    What caused this problem was that your map somehow got turned off. At the main menu, click the wrench symbol, then the map icon and then map info.



    Make sure the map is checked. If it's not, you will not be able to search for anything.



    Probably when you cleared the user data, the factory default boot-up re-enabled the map.

When powering up your Nuvi 350, hold your finger on the lower left corner until it asks to start in maintenace mode. Click yes. Then click clear user data, and click clear waypoints. Also click view diagnostics to make sure there arent any problems there. Once thats done reboot and you should be good to go. Mine did this same exact thing. I almost bought a new one last night, but I did this and now it works like it did before.

Some of my symptoms:

Would not allow me to search for a state. As soon as I type one letter, it would say no matches found

When I click view map, nonce of the streets were there. Just highways, and it would be off a little bit

It still shows the time and mph

Boots up like normal

Try to type in address and it says state not found or no matches


Your maps are either outdated or have become corrupted. Your best bet would be to update the unit. The new updates will correct your problem as well as give you the neat new item that allows the unit to actually tell you what street/road/freeway you are on. For example "Turn right on Division Street in one quarter mile off of Clinton" and it will also use a "ticker" at the top so a person can read the same directions. You should also check the other options as you can change your icon from a car to a boat to a semi to an eagle to a turkey(leg) to a herse to a jogger to even a snow shovel or a kid on an inner tube. You can add a 2GB SD card and increase the memory of your unit even more. Now the street recognition only works on units 260W and up and you can even change the voice to an elf or a ghoul and add in halloween-xmas-st patty's day and other holidays to your unit.

To do all of this you need to go to Garmin.com and locate the legacy updater on the webpage by typing in your unit and serial number on the bottom. Go here and have fun http://www8.garmin.com/support/download.jsp

Canada


The Nuvi 350 comes with US, Canada and Puerto Rico. When you press Where To? and it asks State/Province, type a Canadian Province, such as Ontario. See what it asks next. It should ask for the City. Try Toronto. Then press Done twice. It should provide you with some addresses in Toronto. This should show it is mapping for Canada.

Cannot insert addresses!


Got it!! For those getting the "No Matches Found" headache. Here's the solution:1. Go to "Settings" 2. Go to "Map" 3. Go to "Map Info" 4. MAKE SURE that "City Navigator North America NT 2008" is CHECKED. It fixed the problem for me. Hopefully it will fix yours all the same. God Bless.
