Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver

Open Question

Garmin nuvi 350 GPS lags behind while i am on route.

It lags behind while I am on route to my desination. At times I have already arrived, and it will think I am still on the highway. At other times it will think that I am still at home when in fact I am in another city. Leaving it during the drive doesn't readjust the screen. I rely on it to get to my different destination points and it has not been reliable. Help.

Sounds like a major software failure. . .

Hold a finger on the upper right corner of the screen while powering up the unit. This should do a master reset.

Hit the side of the Garmin a few times while it is on. I did this to mine, and now I can see the screen like before.

SOURCE: nuvi routes to destination are too long

Perhaps it is set to Pedestrian Mode instead of Automobile Mode.  This can be changed in the settings.

You have to flip up the antenna on the back to turn the GPS on.

I have a garmin nuvi 350. It suddenly quit. It would not power up. I bought new car charger and wall charger specifically for nuvi 350. Both charger would not power up the gps at all. Is my battery dead or...

I would say this is not a battery problem. A Nuvi will power up even with the internal battery disconnect (done it many times myself ) when connected to an external power source. Please see this link about Dead Nuvi's. Have you tried pressing the reset button behind the antenna?

How to reroute my desination i am looking for

From browsing the manual (page 20) for your Garmin nüvi 350, it looks like you will be able to do this by creating the route in MapSource, saving it as a GPX file, and then loading it to your nuvi on an SD flash memory card.

The Nuvi 350 doesn't support custom routes. You can create waypoints (or custom POIs) for each location and manually pick waypoints as you travel, but there is no way link all the points together into a route. While you can upload a GPX file to it, it won't contain the route, just waypoints. When you pick a waypoint and tell the 350 to take you there, it's going to calculate the route based on the settings (ie, vehicle type, shortest distance, etc). It won't follow a predetermined route.

I am trying to save points (POIs) on predetermined route

With the Nuvi 350 you can only add one stop to your route see Page 5 of the Owner's Manual downloadable from and also contained in a file on your Nuvi. This Limitation of Adding only one Stop is also contained on Page 4 of your Quick Reference Guide a copy of which should have been bundled with your Nuvi
