Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver
Nuvi 200 - goes into repetitive cycle of 'Acquiring satellites' - 'Updating GPS Firmware 1-100%', GPS Firmware Update Complete', then back to 'Acquiring Satellites' and repeats cycle.
GPS is not usable in this state. The one day it was fine, next day like this. There was no upgrade of either firmware or software inbetwee.
i) Updated the firmware with and without memory card present.
ii) Reset the unit.
The device needs a good reset and a full reinstall.
You might not be able todo it at home, If you connect the device into your pc, copy all the internal files from there into your harddrive, every folder one by one, few folders will be locked icnore this. Ones all the files and folders have been copyed.
Format the gps disc, after format is done copy the folders back you might also need to copy the files in the root back. thats optional in my opinion.
Ones that is done, you might have to reset and restore firmware again.
if this doesn't solve this contact garmin and get it replaced or repaired.
I've done this with another customer, he didn't report back or complain it must have worked.

There is actually a problem lots of people have with this unit and it seems in the FAQ i can find through garmin that it can take up to 30 minutes to aquire the satellites. there is no fix but if it has the option to get a additional antenna i would try so. If not id suggest a new unit.
