Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver
The cigarette lighter charger will no longer charge the battery or power the unit. I checked the fuse and it appears to be okay. Do I need to replace the cable? Or is the problem with the battery? And it looks like the cradle disconnects from the cable, but no matter how hard I pull, I can't seem to get it apart. So maybe I'll need to replace both?
Buy a motorola v3 razer carcharger and home charger, it work perfect.

If your nuvi will charge when attached to your computer but won't charge when in your vehicle even with a new cable etc, maybe, just maybe, your 12v power port (cigatette lighter) has a blown fuse.

I note that you make no mention as to what the Battery Icon (contained on the Menu Screen of your Nuvi and as shown on pg 1 of the Owners Manual downloadable from Garmin.com) indicates or what happens when you plug it into your house current via the AC charger which comes in the box with the Nuvi 350. If you don't have an AC charger your Nuvi is being charged when it is connected to your computer via the USB port. Leaving it connected to either power source for a couple of hours and checking the Battery Icon should tell you whether or not your battery will hold a charge. Further info on your Batttery Icon is contained on pg 64 of the Owner's Manual

You'll need to open the case and replace the battery. Batteries can be purchased online here or a couple other places on the web by searching for "nuvi 360 replacement battery". I'd get the 1400mah or greater for a replacement, it'll burn a little longer than the weaker models. If the unit operates when plugged into the charger, then the fuse and cable are good. Open the case by removing the retaining screws, then carefully prying the unit apart. The new battery simply plugs into the connector after removing the old one.
