Using my car speakers with my Garmin Nuvi 350

Is there someway to connect my Nuvi 350 to use my car speakers? My car doesn't have a plug in port (that would be too easy). I only have a CD player and AM/FM radio.

I purchased an FM transmitter, plug it into the earphone jack on the nuvi, tune the radio to the frequency set on the transmitter and play thru my car stereo.

The transmitters are widely available and inexpensive. The cheaper ones have preset frequencies that can be selected. The better ones (not necessarily more expensive) have infinate selection capabilities. The latter will allow you to better find a clear frequency (one not used by a nearby FM station). Mine has the presets and works fine all over England.

Hint - Buy a set of 4 rechargable batteries. Two for the unit and two for take along spares. Recharge the depleted batteries and put them back into your car as spares repeatedly. Saves money in the long run.

No, unfortunately ther is no way to get the unit to use your car speakers. To do this, the unit would have to have an FM transmitter or be able to connect to one. It does not have this capability. Sorry.

You should only see the computer icon when plugging the 350 into a USB port on the PC. If you see it when plugging in a car charger/adapter, then there may be a problem with the mini-USB port on the 350 or the charger is an after-market charger that is not electrically compatible with a Garmin charger.

Nuvi 350 will not run on DC charger


Make sure your DC & AC charger is a OEM charger.

There is a good chance that there is a bad connection on the mini-USB port.

What happens when you plug the unit into the cradle and NOT use the mini-USB jack?

Nuvi 350 System Software Missing


If you have a nuvi 350 download the software to your computer and then load the software onto a formatted sd card. Insert the sd card and bootup the Nuvi 350. The sofware will then load onto the Nuvi 350. If you have a Nuvi 200 I would think it works the same but I have not tried it.
Hope this helps

Garmin gps won't charge while driving


If the Nuvi won't charge when connected to charge but charges on USB, then the charger port is faulty.

If the Nuvin does not charge at all , then the battery must be replaced.

Nuvi 350 wont charge with car adaptor. But charges with ac charger in usb port of Nuvi. Any thoughts? I have another Nuvi 350 that does charge with this ones car adaptor.


Are you using the same port on the Nuvi to connect the car adapter and the ac charger, or two different ones? If not, then the jack could be broken (solder joint, pin?).

Garmin Gps Nuvi 300/350 stopped talking


I got a solution for this issue - buy a SPI Mini-Hi-Fi speaker - it's to be connected directly to the GPS output, there is no cord or cable, it's very light, sounds pretty well and it's totally affordable (around $10).
I've been used it for weeks, no problem at all!!!!!!!!!!!

Garmin Nuvi 350 Traffic Receiver connection


You have to power the unit via the mount by either using the cigar charger in the car or snap off the mount from the ball and socket and power it via the mains adapter.

Nuvi 350 blown speaker


When you tap the GPS it is probably doing one of two things:

1. The tapping is temporarily reconnecting the broken voice coil in the speaker (speaker will need to be replaced)

2. The tapping is temporarily reconnecting a bad solder joint from the GPS motherboard to the speaker. (The solder joint will need to be resoldered)

You can either send the unit back for repair or purchase a FM modulator and retrieve the audio through your FM car stereo.

You can purchase an external FM modulator like those used on IPODS and CD players. I am using one on my Nuvi 350 and it works well. Just plug it into the headphone jack. Advice: Be sure to buy one that is crystal (PLL) controlled and NOT using a tuning dial. The FM modulators that use a tuning dial often tend to drift and they will also change frequency when you hit a bump in the road.
If you decide to send it back for repair, be sure to have your serial number handy. Register it online https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/marketing/register.htm
if you haven't already done so.
