    wow...another link to the infamous Nuvi 760 video. A nuvi 360 is in NO WAY the same as a Nuvi 760. If you follow the 760 video, I guarantee you that your will damage your Nuvi 360.

    I have received so many damaged units in for repair from that video......

    Do-it-your-selfer beware!

    Please do not attempt to do this yourself. You need the proper tools to remove the screws and a special tool to take apart the case. I've had many people send me their Nuvi after trying to take it apart. The results have been gouged & dented case, lost hardware, cracked LCD screens and torn flex cables..... please.... don't try to do it yourself.....

Trying to do a hard reset of my garmin nuvi 265w and I cannot figure out how to open to take the battery out?

You can do a regular reset two ways dependeing on your Nuvi.. if you have a reset button.. tiny button on the bottom of the unit.. they advise against using a ball point pen or any sharp object.. to press it.. but.. depress it to reset.

The the other way is to slide the power switch to the on off position and hold it in place for 8 seconds.

You can remove the battery.. but it requires removing the back. this is held in place by two screws under the label on the bottom.. then removing four more screws inside the unit..

Here is a link to video demonstrating how to replace the old battery and replace with a new one..

Best of luck

I have a 276c garmin, use it off road, in the forest I lose reception, in open area I do not. My buddies have the garmin 60 series and they do not lose reception in the forest. Any suggestions? Thank...

Try using an external antena, these are availble from Garmin, all you do is remove the existing arial and plug the lead from the external antena in. Then mount the external antena on your roof.

Losse antena

Did you purchase this unit new? If not, someone may have taken the unit apart and lost a small spring out of the antenna assembly. If you place the unit, display side down, with the antenna hinge away from you, there are two small phillips head screws on the right side. If you remove these screws, a small plastic endcap for the antenna assembly will come loose and the antenna can be removed. Where the endcap and the antenna are hinged together, there should be a small spring that puts tension on the antenna. If the spring is missing, the antenna will not remain in position.

310 nuvi will not lock on to satellites

Please try this solution that helped someone else. If it doesn't help you then your antenna/receiver is defective and needs to be replaced. The antenna on the 310 & 360 are the same.

Have you tried pushing the reset button on the back under the antenna?

Try turning it on and listen for any sound, like the start up beep. Do you hear any sound at all after 30 seconds?

There's a couple possibilities that could have happened.

1. The screen and/or main board has been damaged.
2. The screen cable has come loose from the main board.

If the unit is under warranty (registered with Garmin) you can call them and see if they will fix it for you. They may charge you if they determine it was dropped or mishandled.

If you have problems with getting them to fix it for you, I'll be happy to look at it for you and give you a quote. I have repaired many Nuvi's and I have references.

If interested, please email me at ks3r at sharc dot net.

Flashing question mark and can't get directions.

Try resetting the unit first. The reset button is located under the face plate. It lifts off by lifting right under the Garmin name.

I had the same problem recently... What I did was open the front casing and hit the reset button under the cover, then it turned on while plugged into the car adapter.
