SOURCE: Nuvi 350 System Software Missing

Try this: Hold the power buuton down, you will see on the lower screen the word "Pre Booting - ". Keep holding the power button for about 60 second, then you will see on the lower screen "Booting".
This time, release power button; system will reboot and loading map... again.
I got the same problem, after research on the web. Nick 99990_0 had post this solution on (his Nuvi 660) but it work for my Nuvi 350 too. Good luck.

Hi,
Take a look at this site, http://www.garmin.be/missing.html Download and unzip the software, plug your garmin in the USB and start the updater.exe program. It gets you started again. Later on you can use the Webupdater to get possible newer software..
It worked for me and my Zumo550
Goodluck

If they don't give you a new one under warranty, are third party Garmin repair services that will fix it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI GPS repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult to solder in a new USB port.

Garmin nuvi 1390t won't read or recognize microsd


The 1390t works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it will not work in older devices.
You need to go with microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Hello,

Try performing a soft reset or a hard reset to the unit.
The soft reset is done by holding down the power button for at least 10 seconds and allowing the unit to power back on.
A hard reset is done by pressing and holding the bottom right hand corner of the screen while the power is off and then pressing the power button on. A pop up will appear asking to confirm the reset.
The hard reset will erase the user data, so it is advisable to save the data if possible.
Installing and running the Garmin WebUpdater to load or reload the latest update will resolve most issues.
download the latest version of WebUpdater software

The touch screen may need recalibration.
This can be done by pressing and holding the top left corner of the screen will powering on the unit.
Keep pressing the top left corner of the screen until the calibration screen appears.
Use a stylus or the round back part of a pen to press the dots to calibrate.
Once the calibration is done the unit will continue to boot up showing the Garmin screen.

PRobably needs a firmware restore. Go to Garmin Reset. If it fails you need a new logic board. If they don't give you a new one under warranty, are third party Garmin repair services that will fix it for cheap. Also, I found an DYI GPS repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult.

I have just been googling the same problem.
Try holding in the power button for about 10 seconds - if this doesn't work, press and hold the bottom right hand of the screen while switching on, the screen should ask if you really want to do a reset - press yes (this is a factory reset so your favourites etc will vanish)
Let me know how you get on (OH has the unit with him so I can't try it out)

You may do some simple power checks, but if they check out, you'll probably need to send it in. Check that you have ample power at least 12v to 14v at the cord and plug.

Frozen screen and it says loader loading


Press the reset button - you'll find it on the lower right of the Nüvi 255, but it doesn't look like a button. It's basically the sticker with all the information on it. It's just enough to push the sticker carefully with something small, not too sharp so it doesn' get destroyed. The Nüvi reboots, the loader loads and proceeds with the software load. Once this is over, shut down the Nüvi and reconnect to the PC. Then, everything works fine (it did at least for me).

Frozen on 'loading...' page during registration


I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265WT.

Not starting, getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265WT running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin 265WT WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.
