Garamin Nuvi 350...blanked out and won't turn back on.

I have a Garamin Nuvi 350. The unit turned itself off and won't turn back on. I've tried turning it on while it's plugged in and while it's not. It won't go back on. Any suggestions as to what may be wrong?

    My unit also would not turn out although it was (apparently) charged. I pressed the re-set button behind the antenna and the problem was fixed.

Try the computer USB adapter. After it's been connected for about 20 seconds then try powering on the Nuvi. Even if your unit's battery is dead the USB connection should hold power on the unit so that the computer recognizes it as a Mass Storage Device (Windows). If that doesn't work then use the wall adapter and leave it plugged in for an hour or so. At that point if the unit fails to power on then push the reset button in the back under the antena and hold it in for 10 seconds while the cord is connected to the wall. This will clear any software related issues that would stop it from powering up - any other result indicates most likely a hardware failure. At least rule out your plugs.

For all those Garmin 350's that won't power up - I have one myself and here is what I did. Under the antenna flap there is a reset button. press it. It does not delete your favoriates or any recent trips but it does allow the 350 to power up! Try it, you can't lose!

I have a Garmin Nuvi 1200 series and it shut off by itself and will not turn back on. It was fully charged when it shut off. I tried holding the on/off button for 10 seconds to try to reset, but it still...


try and get it plugged into a computer using a USB data cable, if the unit comes on most likely all you need to do is go to www.garmin.com and run a software update off the webupdater. and also try holding the power button for 50-60 seconds

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?).

Garmins Nuvi 350 - voice interactive lost


I have the same problem with my Nuvi 350. It's only about 2 months old and the sound went. I turned it on the other day to use it and the sound did not sound right, it sounded like the speaker was blown. I turned it off and turned it back on and that was it, the sound was gone. I did everything possible and can't get the sound to come back. I called Garmin and now I have to send it in for repair. I looked around the web and noticed that Garmins have big issues with the sound going on the units. I hope they fix that issue.

Have you downloaded the latest firmware for the unit? If not, download the Web Updater from Garmin and download the latest version. This may help. Also, make sure the antenna is fully extended while using the unit.

I have being having similar problem as every one else. There is nothing wrong with your Nuvi. Garmin (the company is the problem) they are trying to make you buy a new map--Not Exactly Cheap--Do Hard Reset and solve all the problems.

1) Place a finger (Any finger, middle finger worked for me!) at the left lower corner and turn on the Nuvi unit a message appear saying "Do you really want to start up in maintenance mode?" tap Yes
2) At the Maintenace screen tap clear user data (this will restore to factory condition) and follow the instruction on adjusting your prefered setings.

3) turn it off and Repeat step 1, this time when you get to maintance screen tap on "Clear waypoints" and follow the instruction. Let it sit for about an hour then voila.

Heres what to do:

- Connect to computer using USB cable
- Flip up antenna and hit reset button.
- The unit should power up.
- Then put unit on wall charge to get a full charge.

That should do it if not call 1-800 800 1020.
