    All of a sudden while driving the speakers went out on me. Is this a manufacturer flaw or the internal connection to the speakers disconnected? Would like to hear from others.

    I have a similar problem. Speaker doesn't work most of the time, but sometimes it does. I find that if I let the batteries run down and try it again then the speaker will work for a short time. Nothing I do can fix the problem including the diagnostic mode.

    Count me in. The ***** is giving me the silent treatment, maybe because I ignored her directions one too many times. With heaphones, I can hear her through only one channel. I did use the mp3 player through amplified speakers for a short time, until one channel went out.

    Garmin nuvi 360. A few months ago (just out of warranty time) my speaker went DEAD as a doornail. Can only hear thru the audio jack. What a piece. I saw a thread on this where some guy was offering his skill as an out-of-warranty repairperson. Apparently a good job to have in a troubled economy. Plenty of business...

    My Garmin Nuvi 680 GPS Receiver started with sound problems that sounded like static. Now there is no sound at all.

  • tony7681 May 12, 2009

    I bought nuvi 650 almost two year back and I hardly used it. After some use audio stopped working. I thought I might have some thing wrong and there should be nothing wrong with my GPS as it is from Garmin. After trying all sort of options I finally concluded it's Garmin GPS issue.
    Now I am looking for your help. Will you pl. let me know what should I do to fix this issue. I paid $500+ for this device.

I fixed my wife's with a speaker from Digikey, part number 102-1564-NE (2 watt speaker, 8 ohms). If you have the guts to take it apart, then it's not too tough. I used a 0.020" thick plastic card (a credit card is 0.030 and is a little to thick) to separate the cover, a very small torx and phillips screw driver, and a soldering iron.

    Oh I also used a dremel to trim the speaker face pad a little, it's a touch thicker compared to the old speaker.

To repair my Garmin Nuvi 360 with a distorted speaker on July 9, 2010, I purchased from Digi-Key ( a Panasonic P10175-ND 36 mm round speaker 8 OHM 0.5W for $5.38 plus $0.43 tax and 1st class USPS shipping for a bottom line of $8.05. This speaker is ~ 1mm thinner than the original so no trimming of face pad was required. Arrived in 2 days very carefully packaged from Digi-Key -- Great Service ! The sound volume from this speaker is a bit less than the original at full volume setting however may be a plus so it isn't over driven by the Nuvi 360. The volumes is adequately audible in the car.

    sharcnet SELF SERVINGLY says "Please don't try this yourself. You risk damaging the unit. .... " AND THEN ATTEMPTS TO POINT YOU TO HIS COMMERCIAL WEB SITE. BS -- the fix (speaker replacement) is very simple and straightforward and cheap when purchasing the replacement speaker from Digi-Key as noted above by Candor. Don't be mislead to a commercial repair shop drumming up business for themselves.

  • candor Jul 09, 2010

    From Candor:

    See for an excellent pictorial instruction to replace the battery on an Garmin 350. Same disassembly works for 360 and probably many others. Just replace the speaker instead of the battery.

360 Sound lost

Try listening with headphones. If you have sound there, then your internal speaker has gone bad.
