Nuvi 350 System Software Missing


If you have a nuvi 350 download the software to your computer and then load the software onto a formatted sd card. Insert the sd card and bootup the Nuvi 350. The sofware will then load onto the Nuvi 350. If you have a Nuvi 200 I would think it works the same but I have not tried it.
Hope this helps

SYSTEM SOFTWARE MISSING!! on display - the maps just needed update - now the 'missing system software' is displayed ,, I thought it was the map updates needed to be updateed so I went to the Garmin website...


I had the same problem with my nuvi 200. I contacted Garmin via phone (toll-free number) and the tech was very helpful. He said that this happened when I was updating because the program was interrupted while the update was in process. The problem is because I needed the USB drivers for updating--don't know how they got deleted but once he sent me an email with the instructions and attached zip file to reinstall the drivers and reset machine, everything is good to go again.
