    You will not be able to clean the display by just opening it. The touch screen must be dissassembled from the LCD display and if you don't have the right tools, you may permanently damage your Nuvi.

If you don't get any advice on opening the unit then you can evaporate any liquid back out. Suggest you put it in a warm location for a few days and let the water content evaporate.The dry residue shouldn't cause any problems and it will probably be stuck to the surface that the liquid was touching at the time.

sounds to me like the LCD is broken or damaged, but due to the low cost of a new unit these days its possibly scrap. and cheaper to buy new again.

More than most do.
Make sure you have the latest nuvi "Firmware"
then update the maps. I would start with making sure you have the latest WebUpdater on your computer before you proceed with any updates.

If a nuvi 200 is has an older version of system software glitches may occur. The device may be missing letters or have jumbled letters or displaying duplicate letters or strange symbols on the address screen. To correct this you will need to update the system software of your nuvi. You can easily do this by using Garmin’s WebUpdater program:
  1. Click the following link to download the WebUpdater program: http://www.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
  2. Follow the on screen prompts from the website
  3. Choose RUN/OPEN
  4. Follow the on screen prompts
After the program has been installed it should run automatically. If it does not please use the steps below.
To run WebUpdater:
  1. From the Start menu, click All Programs and find the Garmin folder
  2. Click WebUpdater
  3. Connect your nuvi to an available USB port on your computer
  4. To search for an available update, choose NEXT
  5. As the program automatically finds updates, choose NEXT to load the update. Once the update is complete, you can search for other updates such as voice languages, Bluetooth, and Traffic Receiver.
  6. Disconnect the unit to ensure it powers on.
Take your unit outdoors and keep it in a stationary position with an open sky view until it reacquires satellites.

It sounds like the ribbon cable that connects the screen to the controller might be seated incorrectly. I would check that.

GARMIN NUVI 350


Sorry to say the LCD display is cracked. You can find a replacement LCD display with tools on eBay but they are kind of pricey.

You might try finding one for sale that has an antenna problem or is completely that had a known working display at the time it died.

If you send it back to Garmin, it will cost you almost the same as a new one if your unit is out of warranty.

Good luck!

Garmin c550 GPS-Won't turn on at all.


push and Hold the power button down while you push reset, keep power button pressed til it boots again. If it does not, and it's in warranty ship it to garmin. If it's out of warranty, have someone open it up and remove the battery for a couple of minutes.

Screen frozen


It appears that the touch screen isn't working any more. If it is still under warranty then request a RMA from Garmin and send it back.

Wrong date and time


Your GPS receive its date and time from satellites. Take the unit outside and acquire a satellite fix in order to update your time and date. You can set the time zone and time display (12hr, 24hr, UTC) under the unit setting.

Opening the Garmin Nuvi 350


Hi:
It can be easyto open. There is a couple of nuts behind the antenna, you have to remove them, then you need to remove the antenna, in order to do this you need to find a pin in the base of the antenna, and slide it to the center, and this free your antenna, then you can reach a couple a nuts located under the antenna, remove them and then you will be free to open your nuvi. I did this cause my power button was broken, I resolded and now is working pretty fine. the picture is my nuvi 350 opened.b67f991.jpg
