The touch screenon my Garmin Nuvi 600/650 won't work. What can i do?


This is a common problem with units having the serial numbers beginning with "14V", "12P" and "143". It's caused by a defective SHARP touchscreen and needs to be replaced. Please see this link for more info:

My garmin nuvi 360 says "updatin ps software 0%" on start up and then won't be able to acquire satellites


This indicates that there is a problem with the flip-up antenna/GPS receiver assembly and there is no communication between the main board and the GPS receiver IC. When this happens, you won't be able to pick up satellite reception.

The main board is trying to upload a fresh copy of the GPS firmware stored on your Nuvi but it fails because of the problem in the GPS receiver assembly.

Garmin Nuvi 360 - Acquiring Satellites


Did you check to make sure that it is not in demo mode?
I've seen complaints that the unit is not working, and it was in demo mode.

If everything is set up properly and it still does not work, you will most likely have to send it to Garmin in the US.
