Re: lcd screen do not light up

Reset the unit by pushing a bent paperclip or pin into the hole on the bottom marked 'reset' turn it back on, plug it in & charge it via USB overnight or as long as you can in the car, make sure the led on the top is green, tap the bottom right of the screen & check the battery symbol on the unit says charging underneath.

If this doesn't help.
contact them about the problem...

My Garmin has lost much of its "touch response" especially the lower lines where the Spell, go-back arrow, and go-down to next options are. Basically useless for all but Map viewing

Take you GPS to a repair service and get recalibrated or repaired the touch-screen. Or do it yourself?{31446910-c3a3-11e4-cd20-000000000000}

Click on address and it just beeps and stays on the same screen

This is an indication that there is a problem with the map. The map contains all of the data regarding streets and points of interest. You can confirm this by going to the map screen and pressing the map info button. If the map info button is grayed out or there is no map listed on this screen or you see a (c) copyright symbol then there is a problem with your map. Please see this link regarding missing maps and how to get this problem resolved.

The only way you can be assured that your map update was successful is to check the version.
1) On your main screen, you'll have a little wrench tool, click on it.
2) On the next screen, go to the "Map" icon.
3) Next screen, click on the "Map Info"
4) Last screen you'll see the maps isntalled and the year.

Best of Luck!

Only half of sreen lights up and is frozen. Do all 350 have a memory card? When my husband brought it in from his last trip, there appears to be no memory card in it. Could this be my problem with only...

Stock Nuvi's from the factory do not include a memory card (SD card). You do not need a memory card to operate the Nuvi. The memory card is only needed if you want to add more storage space for music or pictures or if you want to add additional maps. It has nothing to do with the LCD display. Having worked on these units for quite sometime, anytime you have 1/2 of the screen missing, it tells me that your LCD display is defective.
