Garmin Nuvi 350 lost preloaded basemaps

I recently loaded shonkymaps on my nuvi 350 and lost the preloaded maps. I tried to reset the unit by pressing on the bottom right hand side of the screen and then holding down the power button. It went thru this sequence
pre-boot
boot
loading
loading maps and then over and over again. I never got the white screen with the dot. Please help.

    Sharcnet I think the problem is that I overwrote the gmapsupp.img file with the new map. I have changed the file to gmapsupp1.img hoping I might be able to get someone or garmin to send me the original file. I have removed the maps from the device so there are none on the 350. Any help will be appreciated.

    Hi David,



    The problem is that the map file is 1GB in size. I have heard that if you call Garmin, they have sent people a copy of the lost map file. You need to specify what year the map was... 2008....2009....I am sure they will ask for your serial number and confirm that your Nuvi is registered to you.



    If you don't have any luck with Garmin, let me know and I can help you with this issue.

You need to buy a preloaded SD card, purchase maps from Garmin and download them to a blank SD card.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 350 Touch Screen unresponsive

The touch screen lays on top of the LCD display. It has its own flex cable that plugs into the main board. It is possible for the LCD display to work fine while the touch screen does not. They are two separate parts and work independently!

If your touch screen all of a sudden quit working, I would ask did you ever drop it?

I have repaired many Nuvi's with a non-functioning touch screen. I can't speak for every instance but the ones i took apart, the flex screen cable was loose from the main board.

Don't attempt to fix this yourself unless you know what your doing. Email me at ks3r at sharc dot net if your interested in me repairing your Nuvi at a reasonable price. I have references.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 205 keeps saying no maps available ???

This is easy. You have to run your software, select the maps tap and then transfer maps to the device. Chances are good you uploaded a 2009 map on top of the 2008 map. The updater doesn't delete maps.

Your unl file only has one key, you have two maps loaded. Simple go into the garmin directory and delete the map file and the mapsupp file. You can easily find them because they are greater than 500 mb.

Then run mapinstall (google for the file). This will install your most current map to the Nuvi. You are back in business.

Contact Garmins Tech support hot Line they will walk you through the process and if they can't fix it over the phone they will send you a disk that will completely fix the "NO detailed maps found that support routing" I have contacted them with the same problem and the disc was free of charge.

Garmin NUVI 350 only loaded Southeast States Want all 49 states


Try using a compatible SD card to have Garmin Express load all 49 states to the SD card. It is possible that you do not have enough free memory in your NUVI 350 for all 49 states.

No Map Data Available on Garmin nuvi350


Hi,

I would suggest you reset the unit,if that doesn't solve the problem, then you will have to update your garmin nuvi, I think its out of date and needs to be updated. Follow the procedures below on how to update your garmin nuvi:

1. Plug one end of the USB cable into your GPS and the other end into your desktop or laptop computer. The GPS device will load the appropriate driver automatically, and a message on your GPS tells you that it is connected to your computer via USB.
2. Open your Internet browser of choice and type in the following web addres: "http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27 "
3. Download the appropriate version of the software for your computer (Windows or Apple) and Install the WebUpdater by following the wizard (accept defaults).
4. Click "Start," "Programs," "Garmin" and " WebUpdater" to update your firmware and your maps. Periodically check and make sure your software is current.

Also, in case you don't know how to reset your garmin nuvi, you can follow the steps below: There are two types of reset;

Performing a Standard Reset

1. Slide the power switch all the way to the left (with the Nuvi's screen facing you).
2. Hold the switch in the position for at least eight seconds.
3. Push the switch to the right to power the Nuvi back on.

Performing a Factory Reset

1. Turn your Nuvi off by sliding the power switch to the left.
2. Press your finger against the bottom right corner of the touchscreen. Hold your finger in this position.
3. Slide the power switch to the right to turn the Nuvi back on. Continue to hold you finger against the screen until you see the factory reset prompt. Tap "Yes" to perform the factory reset.

Best regards

No basemap n garmin nuvi


I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

A message about not finding any maps is an indication that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

I recently updated nt2010.20 map since then my nuvi 350 freezes while loading maps i tried reset, hard reset, preboot,when i connect it on USB i cant see device on my PC.is there any way to delete map...


NO!. THE MAPS CAN ONLY BE DELETED USING THE USB CABLE. GO TO GARMIN WEBSITE YOU MAY NEED TO DOWNLOAD THE USB DRIVERS. THEN TRY THE UPDATE AGAIN. IF THE MAPS ARE ON A CD YOU WILL ALSO NEED THE UNLOCK CODES AND THE UNIT SERIAL NUMBER.

Going to Mexico and my garmin will not display it.


There are a variety of Garmin® GPS devices that come preloaded with mapping not just for the United States but also for Europe and Mexico. Any nuvi® that has 70 in the model number will have preloaded mapping for North America and Europe.

Example: nuvi 270, nuvi 370, nuvi 670, nuvi 770

Also, some specialty models will have preloaded mapping for North America and Mexico. These units include the nuvi 200 Mexico (p/n 010-00621-2A) and the Nuvi 260W Mexico (p/n 010-00656-37).

To obtain Mexico maps, go to this link:

Garmin nuvi 250 mapsource


Verify that you have the correct basemap for the country that you are in. There are two maps inside a new Garmin. The basemap which shows all the major highways and mapsource which shows all the street. If you don't have the correct basemap try changing 'Navigation' Advoidance to avoid highways and Toll Roads.
