    Please see my previous two questions - I have searched and can still find no antena socket - I don't think it has one.

  • jamesbeachus May 29, 2010

    I have already carried out this action and it still doesn't work properly. It seems I must take the unit to a mender.

Hello

Get a new external antenna that plugs into the side of the folding antenna, this will solve the problem. Available from Wireless Finest through Amazon.com - like $11.50.

Take care

    OK but I don't have an aerial - also where is the socket if I did have one - there is a socket on the left hand side of the nuvi just round the corner from the on/off switch. Also for two months or more the nuvi worked perfectly and I was extremely pleased with it. The car was then serviced and summer tires mounted on the car and it then started playing up so that it located satellites sporadically but insufficiently to rely at all on the kit.

    Hello,

    Hook GPS to Garmin website and down loaded latest 4.7 version or any latest version. 2. Perform the hard reset (push down on upper left of screen, hold,
    power and wait until it asks if you want to go in maintenance mode.
    There are posts here or google www.sharcnet.com. This website will
    describe exactly what to do to clear out the old satellite date by
    performing the hard reset . Once the unit thinks it's back in the
    City you are then do the following;
    3) Take a piece of 14 gauge wire, multi strand, use just one individual
    strand, cut all the others off, so the wire doesn't touch the outer part
    of the antenna input connector and short. This piece of wire will act
    as the external antenna.
    4) Insert that single strand into the center of the GPS antenna input. ( use a 6" piece of wire and btw, the wire has the protective
    casing on it. do not use a bare wire)
    5) touch the signal strength bar on the GPS to get you into the
    satellites screen.
    6) , the bars immeadiately started coming up and then filled.
    7) take the small wire out and the will unit continued to work with the
    flip up antenna. I suspect that once the unit reset = re-flashed the
    new satellite info. into the GPS. Things will go back to normal.


    8) Turned unit off and on a couple of times to verify. the unit
    continued to worked normally with the flip antenna.



    With the above your gps should be back to normal.

    Take care.

Does your Garmin Nuvi 1350 Freeze at Loading Maps?
Does it lock up or stop working?

This tip will describe how to perform a hard reset of the device, and how to backup your 'Favorites' in case the hard reset erases them. The next step in fixing your Nuvi when it doesn't start properly is to update its system software using Garmin WebUpdater.

A hard reset (or Clear All User Data) has been known to resolve unit quirks and strange behavior. It's generally recommended to perform it after a firmware update but is not required by any means. However, if you're seeing quirks and strange behavior with your unit after the firmware update, it is a good idea to do a hard reset of the unit.

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

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.

If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite almanac data.


You have now performed a hard reset of your Garmin Nuvi 1350 series GPS unit.

I hope that helps.
