Question about Garmin Nuvi 350 Car GPS Receiver
My Nuvi 660 will operate only when plugged into the vehicle mount. Other wise it works and tracks fine. Is this an indicator that the battery is dead?
Garmin NUVI 660 instructions
It is pretty easy to open up your nuvi,(but not recommended by Garmin or me)...
looking at your nuvi from the back flip up the antenna. You will see two tiny torx screws on the antenna. Remove them and carefully seperate the antenna housing. Pay attention to how the antenna flex is seated because reassembling the antenna housing can be tricky. On the left bottom side the pin assembly that holds the antenna in is spring loaded. Pull the pin towards the center and you will be able to seperate the antenna housing from the unit. Underneath you will find two more tiny torx screws holding the main housing togather. Remove those two screws and you are almost home. Now you need the special plastic tool that you can get on ebay. The tool is used for opening ipods without mangling them. Gently pry the case apart with this tool. Start where ever it is easiest to get the tool in. Once opened you can figure the rest out for yourself. The battery is flat and rectangular and is seated behind the circuit bourd attached to the back cover.

I had a power button problem on my Nuvi 350 and Lance's description of opening the Nuvi was the best I came across.
a few suggestions to add:
#1. When the you remove the antenna, that spring loaded clip will want to fly off into space. Both the plastic clip and the spring behind it are not held in by anything when the antenna is removed. Make sure you put your hand over it to catch it.
#2. Those torx screws are TINY. I have a pretty good security security bit set and not even close to small enough. I found a #2 precision screwdriver (3/64th slotted not phillips head) was able to bite on those screws pretty well without slipping and stripping.

Do you see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph? This indicates that its charging. When you disconnect it from the car cradle, what happens? Does it stay on and ask you to select to stay on or shut down or does it go dead? If it goes dead right away, yes your battery is defective and needs to be replaced.
