Question about Garmin GPS

Garmin Nuvi 350 won't turn on after pressing reset button

A message onscreen suggested that I continue, by using the battery, and I responded yes. After a countdown, the screen went blank. I tried resetting by holding the power key down, the one on the top right and again the other one on the back of the Garmin, for 30 seconds each, and it still does not turn on. I did this while it was plugged into the car, and while it was unplugged. Thanks for helping me out.

    Yes, very helpful. I found the computer USB---which I didn't remember receiving--- and plugged it in to the Nuvi, and it worked!

Hi.

That may happen because you drained the battery completely.

Connect the Nuvi to charger and turn car on. wait fifteen minutes or so, then turn on the Nuvi. If that does not work, then the internal battery must be replaced. In that case you will need to contact Garmin at the number listed on the owners manual.

If that does not work, also test the Nuvi using a different charger, or connecting it to a computer USB. Sometimes the problem is caused by a defective charger.

Regards.

My garmin 255w nuvi keep turning off and wont turn on


It is a good idea to perform a hard reset on your Garmin Nuvi after updating the software.

The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
Perform the Hard Reset:

*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit

  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Remove the battery and wait several minutes.
  3. Install the battery.
  4. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  5. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?"prompt appears.
  6. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

Hi Matt,

That function normally comes up when you put your finger on the upper right corner of the screen and hold it there while you turn it on.

Have you tried pressing the reset button under the antenna?

All you need is to reset the GPS. THere is a small button under the antenna. Simply press the button, and everything would be reset.

Have you tried performing a soft reset by pressing the reset button on the back of the unit, then turning it on again?

How about a hard reset?

With the unit powered off, hold your finger on the upper right- hand corner of the touch screen and tap the power key. Continue to hold your finger on the screen until you get a warning message. Tap "OK" to reboot the GPS.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
