Re: I have two "d"cell batt. that state do not charge. Is...
Never try to charge batteries when it says do not charge.
The alkaline or manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries, can explode when you put a current through the battery. The chemical reactions in the batteries are different in rechargeable and non rechargeable batteries. Please take care. DON'T CHARGE.

To view the state of charge of the battery in your Nuvi 350 hold your finger over the Time Display in the upper right corner on your Menu Screen for 8 to 10 seconds This will put you into an Information Mode the first screen of which starts with:
SWVer 5.10 nuvi1x2GB_2CS
Touch Next 4 times and you get:

Batt State Ok Cap
Bat Chrg1mA -198

First of all are you certain the bulb is ok? Test for continuity across the light bulb. The filament in light bulb will have a very low resistance.
if you are not handy with a multimeter then respond back with a new thread and I can give you more tips on using a multimeter.
Next, clean the contact surfaces off where the battery terminals contact the flashlight copper contacts. You can use a high grit sand paper if necessary. They sell battery terminal cleaner solutions/supplies at Automotive stores if you like. However, distilled water and/or alcohol will probably work just as good.
Next connecting one probe of your multimeter to the top inner contact and then the other probe of your multimeter to the lower inner contact turn off and on the switch. When the switch is on, you should see the same resistance that you checked the resistance of the light bulb filament.
If you don't see the same resistance then switch is bad.
If resistances are equal then place batteries back in flash light and everything should be good to go!
did you inspect the + and - batt cables for damage? trace both cables esp the - to where it bolts to a ground. is your batt sealed, or are there caps that you can pry off to inspect the fluid level of each cell? use a batt electrolyte tester works sim to a cooant tester and check the strength of each cell. at first inspection of the batt cells, they should all be submerged in fluid. check the voltage of your batt with engine off and again with engine at idle.(if engine will start) around 12v (obviously) with engine off. start eng and recheck voltage-if it is higher say 13.0v or there abouts the alt. is working as it should. check your wiring harness for damage/corrosion/loose connections at the terminals. use a multimeter to check for voltage drops at various points. by what you have described it is probably a bad battery. checking for damage to batt housing/loose connections at the + - batt posts/corroded wires- pull batt cables off batt clean the posts w/a brush and baking soda solution, insert/turn a batt post cleaner over each post, apply a light coat of dielectric grease onto each post, connect the clamps to respective posts dont over-tighten so much that the terminal clamps get marred, but get them tight. good luck
14.6 means your voltage regulator or diode is suspect Despite having new alternator .Ive cross refrenced your smptoms in the haynes workshop manual and alternator is your only end answer.The haynes test is to start vehicle with multi meter connected across the battery terminals,increase the engine speed until the reading remains steady should be approximately 12 to 13v and no more than 14v.switch on as many accessories as possible(headlights heater blower radio etc)check that the alternator maintains the regulated voltage at around 13 to 14v.If the regulated voltage is not as stated then alternator is to be repaired/replaced.Good luck with it and a happy new year.
if charger voltage is ok then it could be phones charging controler is not working. if phonebook is only thing you need could recharge battery directly from your charger and then save your phone book. cut off charging plug-connector from your charger make two bare wires and then apply red wire to battery "+" and blck to "-". 5min of charging will be enough to copy your data
