    I have the same problem - once you plug it into the car charger, a "charging" screen comes on and you can't use it anymore. Kind of defeats the purpose, doesn't it? I would love to know if there is a solution to this

    I need more info. When you plug in the charger, what do you see on the screen? A PC icon? Do you see a yellow lightning bolt over the battery status icon?

The solution is really easy. Works in the car or usb charger or whatever.
Once you insert the car charger, wait till the pc connection picture comes.
Than unplug the car charger.
Re-insert it as soon as the picture goes off.
Voila. It is ready to use now!

Garmin 350 cannot charge and nav at the same time

Your battery is faulty. Did it come with an AC Charger? Ac chargers do a better job than the car Dc which really only manages to maintain a reasonable level of input. i suspect your internal batter is critical and either needs a thorough charge or replacement

Charging Garmin 350 battery

I guess it should be fully green, it takes several hours, and you wont kill it if you let it charge overnight.
