There could be a lot of causes to your issue let me list some.

1. Battery (just because you charged it does not mean its still good batteries have a shelf life of so many cycles)
2. corupted files on the unit (try the reset button should be a pinhole size stick a paper clip in there hold it until you see the splash screen)
3. Bad flsh memory

The issues with GPS devices are AGE,Betteries,corruption of files. Now to rule these out you need to think how long you had the unit.

If this is new well chances are you got a DOA dead on arrival or someone's returned unit. nut please try those steps and let me know if you got questions.

Thanks and please leave your feedback and ratings.

Can not get it to charge


Honestly... (anonymous),

$259 to $350 are the availability prices shown... but I am seeing a lot of OUT-OF-STOCK... returns on searches.

COBRA Engineers would be the only ones that can accurately answer your QUESTION...
(I searched repair & return & got CHATTER (nothing real)).

REAL ENGINEERS have data on LIFE-CYCLE management...
The very DATA you are asking would be the number of RELIABLE operations of the various elements, switches & jacks on your device... PRICE & AVAILABILITY.

As for me...
Now twice retired from the COMMERCIAL GRADE
"robust electronics" that made AMERICA great"...

Verify for yourself... (ergo)

I'd toss it into that ELECTRONIC RECYCLING box
in a hot (New York) second...
Cobra 6500 PRO COMMERCIAL TRUCK GPS eBay

Cobra 7750 Platinum 7 Professional Truck Driver GPS Navigation 28377501081...

and GLEEFULLY see what new ...
(walking talking... plug & play toys have REAR VIEW
back up cameras have superseded it...

Just keep in mind... "networking... CLOUDS...
and all these new toys are PRECISELY THAT... TOYS.

They only work when EVERYTHING is working
and your network connection it also there...

REAL GPS is between you and your satellite...

My garmin nuvi 250w wont turn on


Try this: Slide and HOLD the power switch into the ON position for 10 seconds or until it turns on - which ever happens first. This forces a reset / reboot of the GPS. It does NOT delete any data.

If that doesn't work, the battery may be discharged. Recharge by connecting to your computer's USB port with a USB cable, or with the AC adapter (if yours came with one) for 8 hours. Do not use your car's cigar lighter or power point to do this (it won't work). Turn on as normal or failing that, use the slide & hold method detailed above. After starting up with the slide & hold method successfully, subsequent power up operation can be done in the normal manner. You can use the slide & hold method any time the GPS fails to start up normally.

One power up method or the other should allow the GPS to start if the battery still has a useful life. If it does not power up, it is likely that the battery is no longer capable of holding a charge. In this case, you may purchase a battery and attempt to replace it yourself (this is a fairly involved process), or you can contact Garmin Tech Support to arrange for a flat-rate repair.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I've borrowed a friend's Garmin for a trip and when I use the car charger, it doesn't display anything. Once I disconnect, it becomes visible again. I'm going on a long trip and worry. ...


Assuming there is power at the cigarette lighter jack - turn the Nuvi off - then connect the charger. It should display charging battery or charging complete.
If nothing - does it charge with the wall charger? If so check the fuse in the car charger - it's usually in the tip of the charger which can be turned to get the fuse out.

Gps not turning on/starting


I have the same problem. It may have something to do with battery. Try to charge it via your car. Or get a Garmin and never buy a Sanyo GPS 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.
