Heres what to do:

- Connect to computer using USB cable
- Flip up antenna and hit reset button.
- The unit should power up.
- Then put unit on wall charge to get a full charge.

That should do it if not call 1-800 800 1020.

Thanks for your advice. I ended up sending it back (which was a bit of a saga!) but eventually was given the nuvi 360 si fubgers crossed no probs. It wouldnt turn on whether plugged into the cigar lighter or the mains. But that is useful about where the fuse is. Many thank Wendy : )

Re: garmin nuvi 350

If it is plugged into a cigar lighter socket, then the plug should have a small metal (usually silver) spring loaded pin in the middle. either the pin itself (unusual) or more likely a ring around where the pin comes out will unscrew and there should be a small fuse and a small spring inside the pin. These fuses are readily available - there might even be a spare in the box somewhere if you still have it. This would usually be the cause, assuming the car electrics seem to be working fine. If this doesn't get your gps working then please post again Hope this helps :)
