Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver
Can you help me? I am technically competent and can usually repair things. I have a nUvi 350 whose battery does not hold a charge for very long. I need to be able to replace it. I also need to find a source for a replacement battery.Thanks very much
Replacing the nuvi 350's battery is actually not all that hard as this video demonstrates:
The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to do this yourself if you'd like. See: http://www.newpower99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=GARMIN+NUVI+350&Show=ExtInfo I swapped the battery of a friend's dying GPS using the aforementioned kit and all went well. His nuvi 350 is back up and running smoothly.

6.Depending on your operating software choose one of the following

-If running Windows (post 20000) click the 3rd DOWNLOAD
7.Scroll down and AGREE to the terms
NOTE: Once the program is installed it will say “WELCOME TO THE WEBUPDATER WIZARD”.
Once this is done the program will say the following, "PLEASE CLICK NEXT TO CHECK FOR ADDITIONAL UPDATES"
10. Click next
11. You'll want to place a check next to anything that says SOFTWARE or FIRMWARE
12. You can also scroll through the different vehicles, texts, and voices and choose any you wish

The battery on this unit was not designed to be replaced by the consumer. Your best bet would be to contact Garmin.
