Heres what to do:
- Connect to computer using USB cable
- Flip up antenna and hit reset button.
- The unit should power up.
- Then put unit on wall charge to get a full charge.
That should do it if not call 1-800 800 1020.

These are the instructions I got from Garmin as how to do the Master reset:
Here are the steps to backing up the favorites on your unit and then performing the master reset. First, you’ll want to plug your unit into your computer via USB cable. Once it’s plugged in, you’ll want to go to My Computer in your start menu or from your desktop and double-click on the Nuvi. At this point, you should see a few folders, but you’ll want to double-click on the Garmin folder. Here, you’ll want to look for the “GPX” folder and you’ll double-click on that. In this folder, you’ll want to drag and drop the file titled “Current.gpx” to your desktop to copy it. Now you are able to do the master reset.
To do that, you’ll want to start with the unit turned off and press and hold on the upper left hand corner of the touch screen. While holding the touch screen, power the unit on and continue to hold. You should get a message that asks if you really want to go into maintenance mode and you’ll want to select “Yes”. At this point, you’ll want to select “clear user data” and then select “Yes” when it asks you if you really want to clear user data. Now, the unit should restart and you’ll want to take it where it has a clear view of the sky and let it sit for up to 30 minutes to acquire satellites. If after 30 minutes it does not acquire satellites, you can go ahead and reply back to me.
Either way, once we have your unit back working again, you can follow the first set of steps again to get to the GPX folder and drag the “Current.gpx” folder from your desktop to that folder on your unit. This will replace your favorites.

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"

ALL GPS require charging via the AC charger or USB supplied, If you have not done this then the battery will lose power quickly when connected to 12v car outlet. This source is a maintenance charge, not the main charger. Therefore it will deplete and try to shut down, despite being connected. Holding the power button on to force it is a dangerous driving practice and will eventually damage the unit( not so bad as getting you and any passengers damaged by this practice)
Charge your unit fully before you use it, if that is daily then disconnect it and put it on the AC or USB to raise the charging level to full so it's ready to go for the next day.
If it fails to charge fully, then your actions have damaged the battery and it will need to be replaced.
Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Testimonial: "thanks for that very helpfull"
It is a good idea to perform a hard reset on your Garmin Nuvi after updating the software.
The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.
*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit
