Re: reset before trip completed
Hmmm, It has a stop navigation button, and it needs time and line of sight to the satellites to figure out where it is....somewhere in that fine manual that came with the device you can expand your knowledge of the fine workings of this nifty piece of electronics!

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.
Have you selected how you want to get there, shortest distance, or fastest trip. You can set these under the wrench menu, If you aim for fastest, usually it will select all highway, if you select shortest distance it will calculate a trip that will drag you through every nook and cranny, usually quite entertaing (sightseeing)
If the favorites do not show up, unfortunately they may be gone forever. Check the Recently Found and see if any are there, then re-save them. I don't know why it would lose the favorites to begin with, but once gone, they are usually gone. By the way, resetting can remove them also.
I experienced the same problem about acquiring satellite signal even when it's a clear sunny day. After 30 mintues, it was still searching!
The unit appeared to have "stuck" in this acquiring mode. The following worked for me:
1) open the GPS antenna
2) press the bottom left screen while holding the power button to turn the unit on
3) enter maintenace mode
4) select diagnostics
5) clear error report, do NOT clear any user data
6) restart unit the usual way
My GPS 350 was able to acquire satellite signal in less than 1 minute after the above steps were taken.
