Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver
My Garmin Nuvi 360 has been working fine for a long time until the last trip.
It does not acquire any satellites. Tried the maintenance mode - remove errors does not work .. dont know whats wrong ...any help is appreciated..
I had a problem with my Nuvi 360 that it couldn't find the satellites. I couldn't solve the problem with resets or updated software, but a new, external antenna that plugs into the side of the folding antenna seems to have solved the problem. Available from Wireless Finest through Amazon.com - like $11.50. Great solution - can't beat the price.

If you have already updated the firmware and the version of your GPS software in the System/About menu shows as something other than 0.0
Try inserting a small wire into the external antenna port that is on the side of the built in antenna.
I used a cat 5 cable that I had torn apart.
A few feet long should simulate an external antenna.
For me this got the internal antenna to work again.
For others this signifies that you may need to use an external antenna.
Apparently nuvi's have a tendency to stop working with internal antennas.

Did you check to make sure that it is not in demo mode?
I've seen complaints that the unit is not working, and it was in demo mode.
If everything is set up properly and it still does not work, you will most likely have to send it to Garmin in the US.

I have the same problem...not it asks me if I am indoors and if I have traveled hundreds of miles since my last use. My mom is having the same trouble with her nuvi 350.
