    The antenna is turned on when you flip up the antenna. There is a magnet in the antenna that activates a magnetic switch in the main unit when the antenna is closed, turning off power to the antenna. - Jim SHARCNET-USA

Hi, My Garmin nuvi displays 'gps is off' which means i am unable to de directed correctly as its saying im in the middle of no where. Please can you help? Thank you Laura


There are two possibilities as to why your GPS is not responding.

The first is to check your System Settings. Although it should not affect your GPS signal, check to see if the WAAS / EGNOS setting was turned off. If so, try turning it back on.

The other possibility is that the Garmin device is not reporting the status of your antenna properly. When the Antenna is closed on the nuvi 350, it disables the GPS functionality. Simply open the antenna to re-enable GPS. If the antenna IS open, there could be a hardware malfunction. This would require contacting Garmin for additional assistance.

Nuvi was working and then went black and now won't turn on.


First try pressing the reset button under the antenna (raise the antenna first) if that has no result thentry holding your finger on the upper right corner of the nuvi's screen while turning on the nuvi. Keep your finger pressed until the popup window appears. Touch Yes to clear all user data. All original settings are restored.Your recent selections and audible bookmarks are also deleted.

The Garman works when out of the vehicle but when in the vehicle the Garman reads "cannot detect satellite"


try reseting the unit - the reset button is under the antenna.Keep in mind that satellite acquisition is only possible outdoors or in a vehicle. Last case scenario try a hard reset (will erase all your saved places and bookmarks) - hold your finger on the upper right corner of the nuvi's screen while turning on the nuvi keep your finger pressed until the popup window appears - touch yes to clear all user data.

My garmin 350nuvi will not acquire sattelites


Make sure to flip your antenna horizontally or 90 degrees and not vertically or 180 dgrees. I see to many people try to use their older nuvi this way and it does not function well.
Try also updating your unit with the latest firmware from Garmin, this helps sometimes.
You may have moved to a location that is far away from the last location your Garmin nuvi 350 was last use, try to keep your unit on for 30 minutes or more to see if it will acquire GPS sattelites.
Last, certain vehicles have shielded windshields and GPS does not work well with these windshield, this can be eaisly verify by simply taking your nuvi 350 out of your vehicle and turn it on with a clear view to the sky, if that still does not work, it could be a defective GPS receiver or GPS connection in which case you should consider sending it in to Auto Nav 2000 Plus, Inc in San Jose CA or Garmin.
You may also consider replacing your nuvi 350 with a newer model nuvi with fresher map.

Good luck

Garmin just went blank someone said you have to re-boot but I don't know how


Try pushing the reset button on the back of your Nuvi 350 - right under the antenna when antenna is in up position.

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?

I had this same problem.  Just lift up the antenna on the back, hold the reset button for 3 seconds, and then plug it in to an external power source.  Mine started right back up after just going black one day while driving and not turning back on until i did this.

All you need is to reset the GPS. THere is a small button under the antenna. Simply press the button, and everything would be reset.
