Question about Garmin nuvi 1350 Car GPS Receiver
I have done a film ware update previously when i first got it. But for some odd reason it won't connect to my laptop anymore ( I have a HP notebook with windows 7 home premium.) I recently wanted to update the film ware and the maps on it because their was alot of road construction in my town and all the speed limits were changed as well. So i thought maybe i could update the maps on it, which i waited for the whole 3 Gigabytes to download and their was also a traffic transmitter update as well. Well, i cannot finish the update because now its stuck on " please connect your device to finish the update" and i proceed to connect my garmin and wait for the connection between it and my laptop to establish, but nope nothing. It has the little icon that shows that its trying to connect but it goes right to "loading maps" right after it fails to connect to the computer and its just using the computer as a recharge source. I have already tried: A hard reset Completely resetting the device Erasing everything off of the device and memory card -------------------------- Please help me! I travel quiet often so if anyone could help me please do!!

SOURCE: 2009 map update not loading
Fixed. Called Garmin. It seems that version 4.90 FW on the Nuvi 350 (which came shipped on my 350) has a bug where it cannot communicate with the Garmin software either to update maps or update FW. Tech from Garmin e-mailed me a patch that I copied into the Garmin folder on the Nuvi itself, via USB and Windows Explorer. I then rebooted it; the patch installed itself which then allowed the unit to communicate with the map upgrade software and all is well. 2009 map update is now installed and the Nuvi is working fine again. Haven't tried upgrading to newer FW yet; will probably leave well enough alone.

SOURCE: Garmin is stuck at loading maps
I had a 200 W Nuvi with the same problem. Luckily it happened with the first 3 months, so i could return it to Garmin under warranty for a free replacement

SOURCE: garmin nuvi 360 wont unlock maps
Master reset is after you turn on the GPS put a finger on the left lower corner rightaway and then keep the finger there, wait until it shows up the "Do you really want to start up in maintainance mode"
You are not able to use others nuvi's map on your nuvi 360, as each map must match with the GPS unit ID, to find out your GPS's unit ID, go to "Setting" tab on "System", tab on " About"

Take a look at this site, http://www.garmin.be/missing.html Download and unzip the software, plug your garmin in the USB and start the updater.exe program. It gets you started again. Later on you can use the Webupdater to get possible newer software..
It worked for me and my Zumo550

Try the reset, and if that fails, download the web updater from the
garmin site and try that route.
Master reset will erase all way points or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.
Practice: it works but you have no idea how ALL That is necessary for the Triumph Of evil is That good men do nothing.
