Garmin 350 issues

I switched on my Nuvi 350 after a week and i am facing following issues: - Not able to acquire satellite even after 1 hour in car - Not able to play MP3 songs (no sound) - Not able to run on battery power. If i take out the car charger, it shuts off immediately. I tried following solution: 1) updated with latest software ver 4.60 and 2) reset the unit. But all the problems are still there. Can you pls help me with a solution? Thanks

Just solved the same problem on my N?vi 350. Looks like my unit had a bad day, because it WAS a software problem. This is what I did: Press and hold the upper right corner off the main screen. Go next, next ... till you reach the audio test page. There you can try several thing. What worked for me was the Test Frequencies button - and then Play. Suddenly there was sound again :) Best Regards Karin

My garmin 255w keeps telling me that it's


Hello,

Doing a soft reset on the nuvi will usually get the nuvi up and running.
If there is a reset button on the bottom, press and hold it until the nuvi powers back on. If it does not have the reset button on the bottom, slide and hold the power switch to the left for at least 10 seconds.
Also running the Garmin WebUpdater and reloading the latest update will resolve most issues.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

Garmin 755T Issue - Firmware Update and acquiring satellite


Hi Bob,
You need to do a complete reset by turning it on and at the same time press the bottom right hand corner of the screen this will reset it to factory condition. having done that when you switch it on again leave some where where it has a clear view of the sky and leave it for about 1/2 an hour. This should sort it out for you. Best of luck.

Garmin nuvi 350-can not change the location it is stuck on


you may need to reset it, as in resetting the c340, turn off and then press back on again, if this does not work maybe the reset button is in the same place as it is on my c340, instructions for the c340 is as follows: place your thumb nail in the groove located under the Garmin logo on the face plate, gently pull off the face plat, press the reset button, turn the unit back on and hopefully it will operate normally

My Garmin has stopped finding destinations - just says "Searching for Satellite)+


I had the same problem with my Nuvi 310. Found a solution in here that works. Here's a copy of the advice.....note you will need to get in the car and set it for a destination and go. 5-10 mins later the Garmin Nuvi will lose the satellites, but don't adjust it it, leave it on and keep going. Eventually after about an hour it will right itself, pick up the satellites and evrything will be back to normal.

Here's the advice:

I experienced the same problem about acquiring satellite signal even when it's a clear sunny day. After 30 mintues, it was still searching!
The unit appeared to have "stuck" in this acquiring mode. The following worked for me:
1) open the GPS antenna
2) press the bottom left screen while holding the power button to turn the unit on
3) enter maintenace mode
4) select diagnostics
5) clear error report, do NOT clear any user data
6) restart unit the usual way

My GPS 350 was able to acquire satellite signal in less than 1 minute after the above steps were taken.
