Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver
The Garmin comes on - it is plugged into my car - after I put destination in - it comes back with - are you inside - are you in Texas- is this the date - when respond - it just keeps trying to find satellite
I had the same problem with my Nuvi 310. Found a solution in here that works. Here's a copy of the advice.....note you will need to get in the car and set it for a destination and go. 5-10 mins later the Garmin Nuvi will lose the satellites, but don't adjust it it, leave it on and keep going. Eventually after about an hour it will right itself, pick up the satellites and evrything will be back to normal.
Here's the advice:

I experienced the same problem about acquiring satellite signal even when it's a clear sunny day. After 30 mintues, it was still searching!
The unit appeared to have "stuck" in this acquiring mode. The following worked for me:
1) open the GPS antenna
2) press the bottom left screen while holding the power button to turn the unit on
3) enter maintenace mode
4) select diagnostics
5) clear error report, do NOT clear any user data
6) restart unit the usual way
My GPS 350 was able to acquire satellite signal in less than 1 minute after the above steps were taken.

Hmmm, sounds like the aerial connector. Sometimes not folding the aerial out all the way sorts it out. I've always found this connector a bit tacky....try it first though
