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

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: 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.

My gps 40lm is froze. I can turn it on and off but all I can get is the Garmin logo. Is there a way to fix it?

I've now had two of these devices fail in exactly this way. It appears that this model is unreliable. Call Garmin and get them to send you another GPS unit--preferably not another 40LM, as that will probably just fail again.
