Question about Garmin Nuvi 350 Car GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Not charging. Placed the Garmin Nuvi 300 in the glove box with the USB plug in. When closing pressure was placed on the plug bending the internal connection attached to the PCB. Would like information on how to open case. I am in Australia. I have plenty of experience in electronics. Thank you in advance.

    There was no solution offered. What I needed was to disassemble my unit. The onlyadvice was that I needed special tools & send it to an authorised dealer such as yourself. The other advice I was seeking was how to align the ribbon connecting the PCB to the touch screen as there is not much length. No advice was forthcoming.

I removed the plate cover on the aerial, then slid the hinge pin to the right to release the aerial holder then removed the two fixing screws from the top of the unit that had been obscured by the aerial receiver. I then removed the PCB fixing screw to access the PCB & re-soldered the mini-USB plug to the outside rail.I did get side tracked after that so will re-assemble today. Wonderring which is the best method of aligning tapes from touch screen to PCB as you would be aware there is not much length.

Garmin nuvi 215 is not detecting secondary map which I have placed on sd card. What is the solution?


The map must be named "gmapsupp.img" on the SD card and not "gmapprom.img" like on the internal memory of the unit.

Brand new Garmin Nuvi 1490 T out of the box. How do I charge it? The only devices in box were a car charger (my commute is 5 minutes daily) and a USB connector? Should I just plug the USB into my computer?...


Garmin satnavs come with a charge out of the box.
In some cases your device may have lost a charge during shelf life. In this case you can charge these units in three ways:
  1. Place unit on computer with USB cable for approximately 8-12 hours
  2. Place unit on Garmin specified AC adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours
  3. Place unit on 12V vehicle adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours.
Some cars continue to supply power to the cigarette lighter socket when turned off and others don't. If yours doesn't you can charge it from your computer. There's no indicator to show that it's charging or when it's charged. However when you disconnect the satnav from the computer and turn it on there's a battery state indicator which shows if it's fully charged or not.

How long does it take to charge up we just bought a new one and it was plugged in the car for 2 hrs and only lasted about 2 hrs


Garmin satnavs come with a charge out of the box. In most instances you will not need to charge before using. Your device will charge while attached to your 12V vehicle power cable.
In some cases your device may have lost a charge during shelf life. In this case you can charge these units in three ways:
  1. Place unit on computer with USB cable for approximately 8-12 hours
  2. Place unit on Garmin specified AC adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours
  3. Place unit on 12V vehicle adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours
Your device should be fully charged after applying one of the steps from above.

Garmin will not come on. Hasn't been plugged in for a month.


Given that you've tried other chragers, it seems likely the problem is battery related - especially if you've already tried steve's suggestion. How old is your nuvi? It is not uncommon for GPS batteries to go down after a year or two as they are subjected to temperature extremes and repeated charges and discharges. If the battery is the problem, it makes more sense to replace it for $30 than to spend another $300 on a new GPS. This can be done easily enough:

The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to do this yourself if you'd like. See: http://www.newpower99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=GARMIN+NUVI+205W&Show=ExtInfo

I hope this helps. Happy travels!

Best,
Rob

This place has the battery and tools come with it!. its super easy and way cheaper than buying a new garmin. 2 screws and unplug the old battery and plug in the new. I did mine and I never messed with the internals before.

  • Please try to call the Garmin Technical support and then check if the device is still under warranty so that they can replace it.
  • You can also try if they have any promo on going so that you can take advantage of the promo.

I solved the problem by charging internal battery using the 120V. charger that came with the unit. I was not aware, that the cord in car was not charging my Nuvi and that it was running OK. until the battery was low and quit. I have to check this cord. Peter W.

Nuvi 260w no power.


Yes, you need to charge it. USE the charger that came with it for best results. Some off brand chargers will NOT work.
You plugged it into your car and nothing? Even if the batteries are bad it should still work. Is it the Garmin charger?
