Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Garmin 350 I have a Garmin 350 and when I plug it in to any source for charging the battery the screen goes to the splash screen. I have reset it and upgraded the software to no avail. This is a real problem when I am traveling and need the unit plugged in so the battery does not run out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Mark

    I also am having the same problem when I go to charge it. Mine is a 250w, what is that plug you are showing ?

    I got an aftermarket dash mount because the original window suction kit broke. It doesn't use the plug device pictured above but it worked fine for 4 months until I downloaded software rev 5.30. Now the unit jumps to the splash screen and indicates that it is charging with a USB computer connection instead of the 12V DC cigarette plug adapter. Are you saying that resting it in the old broken cradle with fix the splash screen problem?

Just got new battery put in because of recall only used one time. Turned on garmin and garmin screen came on and is stuck on this screen. Does not turn off or on What's up?


Your device freezed that is why it is stuck on the garmin screen. You need to first reset your garmin by holding the power on/off button for about 15 seconds, that way it will restart.
About the battery, when you get a new battery for your device, you need to charge it for about 3 hours before powering on, once you power on without charging it first, then it might kill the cells of the battery as they are lithium ion battery. What you have to do is to remove the battery, insert it back, then you plug it to a power source for about 3 hours, be sure that the battery is charging as the green light comes on as you plug it. If the green light does not come on, then you need to connect it to a computer using your USB cable, that way it will charge. Once it is charged for about 3hours, then you will be able to turn on your device. First reset, then charge battery. That should do the job for you.
Hope this information was helpful.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 1450 - it will just shut off by itself even when charged and / or plugged in. Please help!


I had the same issue on my 1450 except it just would not power on anymore, even with a full charge. A soft reset will preserve your Home, Favorites, POis, etc. Leave the battery in the unit. Hold down on the lower right of the screen while holding down on the power button. After 20-30 seconds, you should see the Garmin splash screen. Have your PC/laptop ready with USB cable. Get the latest Map update downloaded and installed or just start using the unit again.

I cannot use the GPS unit while in charge mode(NUVI 350)


Are you using a USB cable & charger to operate the GPS?

If so, you should stop and use the supplied cradle / power cord to power the GPS instead. The USB cable is used to transfer data to and from the GPS and on other models (maybe your 350, too) to slow charge the GPS battery when completely discharged. Powering with the USB cable will power up the GPS, but does not allow navigation, mapping, etc.

Battery Charging, Nuvi 35


Charge the unit over night, Plug in the AC charger and you should see a lightning bolt over the battery bar graph display.

With the charger plugged in, gently press and hold the on/off power until the screen goes black and displays the text "Charging battery". After a few seconds, the screen will go black to conserve power. At any time, you can press the screen and it will light up saying its still charging.

If you let it go over night, when you touch the screen, it will say Charging Complete and you can then remove the charger. You should have full green bars on the battery indicator.

New 350 garmin, how long do I charge it Ac ?


Plug the charger into the mini-usb jack. The unit should turn on and when you come to the main menu, you should see a lightning bolt over the battery bar graph. This indicates that it is charging. If you don't plan on using it and want to charge it over night, if your Nuvi has a push down power switch on the top, press and hold it briefly until it goes to a black screen and says charging. If your Nuvi has a slide switch, slide it to the left until you get the same charging screen. A few seconds later, the screen will go dark but if you touch the screen, it will light up again and say its charging and go dark again. After several hours, when you go to touch the screen it will say Charging Complete". Yiu will also notice then when you go to use it, you will see ALL of the green bars on the battery bar graph will be lit. No, you can not overcharge it.

Garmin Nuvi shuts itself off after only seconds during navigation


Is the battery charged? What does the battery indicator say? If you are using it in the car, is the power cord connected and working properly? If it is working correctly, you should see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph showing that it is connected to an external power source and that it is charging.
