Question about Garmin Nuvi 360 Bilingual GPS Navigator and Personal Travel Assistant GPS Receiver

Nuvi Screen is messed up

I have a Garmin Nuvi 360. I have not dropped the GPS but I have kept it inside the car every day since I first got it. It has probably been out in the cold when I am at work. It is always in the car no matter where I go and where the car is. I just turned it on this morning and now the screen has the color ribbons coming across and two black spots like the screen is cracked or something because there are lines that go around it. Half of the screen works while the other half...is somewhat scrambled with lines. Everything on the Nuvi still works. The display is just screwy.

Sorry to say but your screen is most likely damaged. You should never store a LCD display in the cold. First, the cold slows down the screen's response time... after all.... LCD stands for Liquid Crystal Display.... what does "liquid" do when it's cold? Also, there is a chance that condensation develops inside from your car being cold and then heated when you drive it. Not good for electronic devices.

The screens can be replaced.

Nuvi charger voltages for 360 vs. 2xx/7xx


They are compatible. There is no difference. They all take +12VDC and convert to +5VDC. The pin out of the mini-USB is the same. This is a standard port on all Garmin units.

Garmin Nuvi 660 - Razor V3XX


Ok very easy. Your RAZOR is not properly recognize by the GPS. Your GPS unit is ok. It's just a little firmware update. Did you do ?

Try to delete your old connection and try again after the firmware update.

if don't call again GARMIN but ask for Automotive technician 2 shift.

Mentionned your problem with the RAZOR and ask if the last firmware include the update for MOTOROLA.

I had one MOTORALA not a RAZOR and it work fine. it should with MOTOROLA.

Best regards
