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.

I dropped my Garming Nuvi 260 this past weekend and when I turn it on it goes to a screen saying Updating GPS Firmware 1% then jumps to Updating GPS Firmware Complete. It keeps popping up with these...


Inspect the bottom of your Nuvi 260. According to the owner's manual, some models have a small "Reset" button on the bottom. If yours does, you'll use this to reset the Nuvi 260.Press and hold the "Reset" button for several seconds, until the Nuvi powers off and powers back on. Next try
to slide the power switch on top all the way to the left to reset your Nuvi if it does not have a "Reset" button. Performing this action resets the system.
Next try a hard reset.
Slide the power switch to "Off."
Press your finger against the screen in the lower-right corner. Hold your finger in this position.
Slide the power switch to "On" to turn the Nuvi on. Continue holding your finger on the screen until the pop-up window appears. When it does, press "Yes" to reset your Nuvi to its factory settings.

Hope this works but dropping may have caused internal damage. If this does not work you may have to send it back to Garmin for service. I will attach a link for Garmin. Thanks for using FixYa.

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.

The touch screen on our Garwin Nuvi 360 do not function.


Unfortunatly there is a fine wire Grid below the surface of the glass, the grid detects where you are touching on the screen, with the glass being broken, the grid is broken, which will cause dead spots or regions on the touch screen. You will have to replace the Touch screen or the unit which ever is most cost effective.

Hope this is of some help.

I dropped my Nuvi 360 GPS and the screen now displays horizontal colared lines and the graphics will not appear.


From technical experience, this indicates a broken display or display ribbon cable having become disconnected from the unit being dropped. The unit will have to be opened up to determine if the cable is loose or if the display has been damaged. The only way to determine if the display is bad is to substitute it with a known working display.

The screen has two connectors, one for power, another for data, just try to reconnect again those little cables, and it should be fine. When I opened mine the first time, my screen comes up all white, and it was because one of those cables.

I have a video from the last time I open my Nuvi350, I will try to post it on this days, in order to give you some idea on how to do it.

By now, I wish you luck, and be patient.

Have you tried performing a soft reset by pressing the reset button on the back of the unit, then turning it on again?

How about a hard reset?

With the unit powered off, hold your finger on the upper right- hand corner of the touch screen and tap the power key. Continue to hold your finger on the screen until you get a warning message. Tap "OK" to reboot the GPS.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
