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!

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.
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.
Are you using the latest Garmin program called WEBUPDATER Version 18.104.22.168 that was released about December 2009?? Try again:

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.
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.
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.
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
