Question about Garmin Nuvi 350 Car GPS Receiver

Nuvi 350 power button

The power button has been getting hard to turn on and off on this GPS.  I now can not turn the unit on unless I insert the power adapter to key the unit on.  Once on I can't turn it off.  The battery is fully charged and works well.  Any suggestions?

    I already found this source through more searching.  It is good to see that the Guru came up with the same solution.  Sent the GPS off for a fix yesterday.  This will cost much less money with a better fix than Garmin offered.  Thanks.

    I received my GPS back from Jim at SHARNET-USA.  Jim did a great job fixing the power switch. Great communication, fast service, reasonable price and the unit works great.  I highly recommend using SHARNET-USA for this repair.  Thanks Jim!  :)

Nuvi will not turn on


What model Garmin Nuvi ???....
On occasion, your Garmin GPS may experience technical malfunctions, including failing to power up.
When this happens, perform a manual hard reset of the unit.
A soft reset entails holding the power button until the unit powers down, and then pressing the it again to power the device back up.
However, when the unit won't turn on, a soft reset won't work. In this case, a hard reset is the only way to get the device up and running again.

Unplug power and USB cables to disconnect all sources of power to the unit.
Place your thumbnail into the groove located below the Garmin logo on the face of the unit.

Pry the faceplate off using gentle pressure.
Press the reset button and hold for approximately 3 seconds.
When the device is facing you, the reset button is located in the middle of the right-hand side of the front of the device.

Snap the faceplate back into place.
Press the power button.
Your GPS should now turn back on.

Garmin Nuvi With No Power
A Garmin Nuvi is a type of GPS device that can help you find your way around when traveling by motor vehicle.
You can mount the Garmin Nuvi inside the windshield of your vehicle and allow it to acquire the satellite signal.
This tells the device where you're located.
After that, you can find simple directions to get to a new location by entering the address into your Garmin Nuvi.
If you find that your Garmin Nuvi has limited or no power, you will need to do some troubleshooting to get it to work.

Change the fuse within your unit's power cable.
If your Garmin Nuvi has no power, the fuse may be out, meaning the device cannot be charged.
Plug your Garmin Nuvi into the power supply of your vehicle and turn the vehicle on.
The device cannot charge and get power unless the vehicle is running.


Allow the Garmin Nuvi to charge fully.
You might be unplugging it from the power source too soon, which could cause the device to have little or no power.

Regulate the temperature of your Garmin Nuvi.
It may not function properly if the temperature is too cold, below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, or too hot, above 113 degrees Fahrenheit.

My Garmin Nuvi 350 will not turn on.


Try this:
Push power button to the left and hold firmly for 10 seconds. This should reset your unit and turn it on. Let me know if this works. I have alternative solutions.

I cannot use the GPS unit while in charge mode(NUVI 350)


Are you using a USB cable & charger to operate the GPS?

If so, you should stop and use the supplied cradle / power cord to power the GPS instead. The USB cable is used to transfer data to and from the GPS and on other models (maybe your 350, too) to slow charge the GPS battery when completely discharged. Powering with the USB cable will power up the GPS, but does not allow navigation, mapping, etc.

Garamin Nuvi 350...blanked out and won't turn back on.


Try the computer USB adapter. After it's been connected for about 20 seconds then try powering on the Nuvi. Even if your unit's battery is dead the USB connection should hold power on the unit so that the computer recognizes it as a Mass Storage Device (Windows). If that doesn't work then use the wall adapter and leave it plugged in for an hour or so. At that point if the unit fails to power on then push the reset button in the back under the antena and hold it in for 10 seconds while the cord is connected to the wall. This will clear any software related issues that would stop it from powering up - any other result indicates most likely a hardware failure. At least rule out your plugs.
