SOURCE: Nuvi 350 System Software Missing

Try this: Hold the power buuton down, you will see on the lower screen the word "Pre Booting - ". Keep holding the power button for about 60 second, then you will see on the lower screen "Booting".
This time, release power button; system will reboot and loading map... again.
I got the same problem, after research on the web. Nick 99990_0 had post this solution on (his Nuvi 660) but it work for my Nuvi 350 too. Good luck.

SOURCE: Garmin NUVI 200W USB Port port pulled loose

The problem with repairing it yourself is that this is a surface mount connector. The solder pads are so small, it would be very difficult to solder with a standard soldering iron. Most likely you would apply too much solder and short out the connector. You really need to use a surface mount soldering/desoldering device and that can be fairly expensive. I have done this before but I have access to the right equipment.

Also, there is a possiblility that the printed circuit board tracks have been pulled up off the main board. If that has happened, there's a lot more work involved in fixing that. You might have to put in a different type of power jack and run wires from it to the main board.

If you're going to try to salvage the USB connector, I would remove it completely and install a new one. Over time, these connectors wear out, so you're better off removing the old one and putting a new one in. Again, this all depends upon whether the tracks on the board have been damaged or not.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good Luck,
- Jim
You also have to know how to take apart the Nuvi.

SOURCE: garmin gps won't charge while driving

If the Nuvi won't charge when connected to charge but charges on USB, then the charger port is faulty.

If the Nuvin does not charge at all , then the battery must be replaced.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: The USB port on the NUVI 260 is loose and will not charge

You will not be able to refasten it yourself. This is a surface mount part and you need a very small tip soldering iron to fix it, plus you ned to know how to modify it so it wont break again. Please see this link:

You register your GPS using the Garmin Express program from Garmin. Down load and install the program, then connect your GPS to your PC. The program will prompt you to register the GPS.

USB port on the backside of the Garmin Nuvi 265WT GPS broken. Can someone repair/replace the port?


The cost of repairs will be more than the cost of a new unit. A special tool is needed to open the unit to depress the multiple spring pressure locks all at the same time.

My garmin nuvi 2555 says battery low and is plugged into the car


If the unit keeps displaying a pop up window saying that it will be shutting down with a count down timer then the problem is a loose USB port that keeps interrupting power to the unit. The reason why you receive a battery low warning is because the battery doesn't have a chance to charge because of the intermittent USB port. We see this problem all of the time on the Nuvi 11xx, 12xx, 13xx, 14,, and 25xx. We've repaired hundreds. Please see this link on why the problem happens and how we repair this problem so that it won't happen again.

I just bought a Garmin 265WT. I ran the registration program, but the computer does not recognize the Nuvi. I've checked My Computer and it does not show a new drive ( the Nuvi should like like a drive...


Hi,

Try these steps:-

  • Unplug the USB cable from the computer.
  • Turn the unit off and then back on again.
  • Plug the USB cable into your computer.
  • The unit either automatically goes into USB Mass Storage Mode or displays USB Mass Storage Mode as an option on the screen.

Note: If your computer still does not detect the unit, make sure that you plug the USB cable directly into the computer USB port and not the USB hub. If the cable is already plugged directly into the computer, try plugging it into a different port.

Also, in some cases the operating system does not support the device. Try upgrading it to the next higher level. In most of the cases windows Xp service pack 2 does not recognise this Garmin device. Try upgrading it to service pack 3.
If you are still experiencing the problem then you will need to contact Garmin for repair.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Good Luck and have a nice day.

My Nuvi 200 will not charge and the USB port


My condolences. I would suggest you plug the unit in to your computer's USB port using an appropriate data cable (in case you no longer have the Garmin data cable, there are lots of devices, including cameras, that use such a cable with the large USB plug at one end and the mini-USB at the other). That would give you a handle on where the fault lies -- in the auto charger cable itself vs the nuvi's socket. If the nuvi charges from your computer, you're halfway home; if not, I suspect the cost of repairing the nuvi's USB jack could exceed the cost of a replacement unit.

THE USB PORT THAT MY GARMIN NUVI 270 IS PLUGGED IN TO IS NOT RECOGNIZED BY MY COMPUTER


If they don't give you a new one under warranty, are third party Garmin repair services that will fix it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI GPS repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult to solder in a new USB port.
