You will need to reset the unit by pulling off the face plate. once you unplug and power off the unit, hold the reset button down for 5 secs. after you release the reset button, power back up the device and it will be normal.

    place your thumbnail in the groove under the Garmine logo on the face plate and gently pull off.

Nuvi 1350 randomly shuts down

Hello :

Try to replace the battery . Because I think that the battery is almost at the end of it's life .

If that didn't work , then I recommend you to reset your NUVI .

Here is the resetting method :

1:Turn the Nuvi on.

2:Touch the tools icon on the main screen. The tools icon is represented by a wrench surrounded by a blue circle.

3:Touch the "Settings" icon which appears as a wrench.

4:Push the "Restore" button at the bottom of the screen. A confirmation message will appear asking to confirm restoring the Nuvi to factory settings. Push yes to restore the factory settings
Try this for hard reset .

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen [ Don't let go ] , and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press “Yes” to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

Stopped working altogether

Unfortunately Lowrance is no longer repairing the iWay 500c model due to lack of parts. You may try calling them at (800) 324-1356 and ask if i's repairable. They may offer you an upgrade to the newer iWay 600c for a reasonable price. Well it's cheaper than a new iWay anyway...

Unfortunately there are no parts or repair manuals available outside Lowrance for any of their models.

I'll try and get some pictures...
