If ther battery went totally flat place it on charge for an hour or so to revive it. Max battery life in storage is 4 days with a good battery.

Charging it even tho the charge light may not show should build up enough charge to eventually show the light and allow you to turn it on. It should remain on charge for 5hrs.

Other possibility is a collapsed cell in battery, replace the battery

Take a look at rear USB port. Insert the plug. Gently wiggle the plug. Does the USB port appear loose? A common problem with this model is that there is little mechanical support for the USB connector. If it breaks off of the printed circuit board, there battery will nit be able to be charged and the unit will appear dead. Have you tried holding down the power switch for at least 10 seconds?

1) Disconnecting the nuvi from the charging cable.

2) Press and hold the battery meter icon for 8 seconds. This puts the nuvi into "system test" mode.

3) Plug in the power cable.

4) Click "Exit." The nuvi should now reboot, but remain in GPS mode!

Look near the serial number there should be a reset button there. Also make sure when you connecting your Garmin to the computer do not use a USB hub connect it directly to a USB port on the pc. I have attached a link to the manual for your unit. Thanks for using FixYa

This is meant to happen when it's connected to your computer but not to your car charger. Sometimes it happens, when connected to a car charger, because the mini USB plug on the charger lead doesn't go in far enough into the satnav. It feels like it's fully in but it's not. If you push it in further it should solve the problem.

It takes 8 hours approx to charge a satnav connected to your computer but only 4 hours approx with the car charger or mains charger.

Garmin 200 won't turn on, flashes "Garmin" screen when plugged in


I connected the unit to the car charger instead of the USB charger and then held down the reset for 10-15 seconds, after which the system would show the computer connection on the charger and then boot up when not on the charger.

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
