Garmin Nuvi 350 not recognizing some major streets

I just dowloaded the recent map updates from Garmin's website, but my Garmin will still not recognize some major streets in the St. Louis, Mo area! These are obvious roads, and the screen just shows me driving on land. Please help!

    Do you know what map datum you have loaded - by deafult most garmin devices in north america have the north american highways map packs loaded.

    I cannot speak for your particular model, but when I have maps loaded on my garmin some of the roads are invisible until the zoom settings are changed. Try that and if it doesn't work let us know and I will go from there.

Sure enough it was the zoom. If it is a very small street, you have to zoom in to be able to see that you're driving on a road. Thanks for the help!

Good day we have a Garmin Nuvi 350 we looking for free updates for voor the nuvi. good you tell us were we can find them. the computer is a Apple. i hope to hear soon from you thanks miss...


Free Garmin Map updates can be downloaded within 90 days of purchase or are free for a life time when it's purchased with lifetime map updates.
Software updates are always free.

Maps / software can be updated online by registering your Garmin at MyGarmin.com using the serial number and your name. On this website you'll be guided through the steps to download / install the required web browser plugin to communicate with your Garmin Nuvi.

When connected over the USB cable - MyGarmin.com shows compatible map or software updates. These will be free in the conditions mentioned above.

Note that updating a map online requires a 3Gb download. This can take a very long time and requires a stable internet connection. Also your Mac need to have at least 5 Gb of free space to install the Map.

A Nuvi software update is much smaller and takes less time to complete.

I recently updated nt2010.20 map since then my nuvi 350 freezes while loading maps i tried reset, hard reset, preboot,when i connect it on USB i cant see device on my PC.is there any way to delete map...


NO!. THE MAPS CAN ONLY BE DELETED USING THE USB CABLE. GO TO GARMIN WEBSITE YOU MAY NEED TO DOWNLOAD THE USB DRIVERS. THEN TRY THE UPDATE AGAIN. IF THE MAPS ARE ON A CD YOU WILL ALSO NEED THE UNLOCK CODES AND THE UNIT SERIAL NUMBER.

Computer can't locate connected nuvi 270


Are you using the latest Garmin program called WEBUPDATER Version 2.9.1.0 that was released about December 2009??
Try again:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} To download the latest unit software visit Garmin website: www.garmin.com/webupdater
After installing WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all future software updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatible Garmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's "Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs", "Garmin", and finally "WebUpdater"
REMEMBER: It takes hours to do a complete a map update.
Unless you bought the Lifetime maps you may have to pay for current maps.


Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

Garmin 350 road disappears


You are in an area that the map does not support. If this is a new construction or street, highway etc it has not been updated on your map loaded on the device. You can check with Garmins website to see if a map update is available. If not you will have to wait until it is updated and released by Garmin.

Hope this helps

Updating street information on my Nuvi 200


You can try to use a cable from a small camera with a mini USB connection. Your computer MIGHT recognize your GPS with this cable.

You can purchase newer maps in CD form, transfer the maps from your computer to an SD card and insert the card into your unit. You'll have to use Map Setup to choose the newer 2009 maps to display.

If either of these solutions solve your problem, please come back and let us know.

2009 map update not loading


Does it recognise the Nuvi? Are you connecting it through a usb Hub. Are the drivers for the nuvi installed properly? Usually there is a folder named USB, thats where the correct drivers reside, and that's where you tell the computer to look when it asks for the drivers.

Garmin 350 Unlock


Did you buy the unlock key from garmin? You need this key to be able to use the maps on a specific gps (serial number) so when you update maps, you type in this unlock key and the maps are unlocked on the gps. There is a page about this on the garmin website
