Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver

2 Answers

My GPS will come on, but that is all

It does not matter whether it is on the charger or not. All I get is the Garmin logo and then blackout. The first problem occurred when I could not type in any state other than mine. The next problem was would not receive address, and not total black out.

Gamin nuvi 1450 wonot start and the gamin express cannot recognize it

Your Nuvi has to boot past the Garmin logo to the main screen before it can be recognized by your PC. Is the unit dead? The Nuvi 14xx series is well known for its problem with the rear USB port coming loose. This will prevent the unit from receiving power from the external charger and will prevent the battery from being charged. If the unit goes into a boot-up loop, displaying the Garmin logo then shuts down, this is often caused by corrupted files, such as a map or bad firmware update. See these two links for more info:

My garmin 1410 sat navi won't switch on

Most likely, your USB port is loose. This is a common problem with this model. The port needs resoldered and reinforced. When the port is loose, you will not be able to send power to the GPS and charge the battery. Please see this link for more info:

When resetting garmin 660 by holding reset for 2 hr 30 min, does it matter whether it is on or off or plugged into charger?

hi jeff,

im not sure why your holding the power button for 2.5 hours, but any reset should be done while unplugged

now, with the unit off, press and hold the lower left corner of the screen...keep holding ti while you hit the power button to turn it on...keep holding it till you see the screen that asks if you really want to delete all data (this will erase you saved info) select yes the follow the onscreen instructions.

I've a garmin 1490, it's not possible to start a hard reset. The logo garmin is on the screen until battery is off.

Have you tried holding the power button for more than 20 secs - or after draining the battery and restarting on charger holding the lower right screen corner for at least 20 seconds?

When I plug the gps into the charger a computer picture shows up and I can't get it on any other screen. What's the matter?

Did you recently purchase that charger?

This usually happens when the charger is not compatible with the unit. or you could be using a non-Garmin charger. There are some "store-brand" chargers that work well, and some do not. Store brand Charger are made to be Universal. To fit multiple devices and maximize profits. You want a Garmin Specific Charger, and here is the logic why...

The reason behind it:

1. The Garmin USB Cable that you connect to your computer has a special 4-pin configuration telling the GPS that is is connected to a computer. This is the configuration most "generic" chargers use to maximize device compatibility.

2. The Garmin Car Charger has a different pin configuration with 2 less pins, giving it only positive ( + ) and Negative ( - ) to charge the GPS.

When the GPS receives the 4 pin, which is also found in a "Motorola" Cell phone charger, it will automatically sense that it is connected to a computer.

Long winded, but I wanted to explain why. Simple fix, Just go get a new charger and make sure it's Garmin compatible.

GPS will not come on

I have the same model. When I had a problem I called customer service. They linked w/ my computer (nuvi was plugged into it) and fixed the problem! Give it a try. They are very nice.
