Brand New Garmin nuvi 350 Shut Off, Won't Come Back On

As the subject says, it's brand new. It is charged. We changed it on most detail on the view maps and were looking at downtown Spokane when suddenly it just shut off. Black screen. Nothing. Even plugging it in to charge no screen comes up.

    I have the same problem..My Nuvi 350 went dead while I was driving..battery was not full charged but still had some left. Connected to the laptop charger but nothing worked...just the black screen

  • nitelifee Jan 13, 2009

    Same deal, but my 350 is about a year old. I thought that maybe the car charger fried it. A few minutes later it comes on and then starts to load maps and then turns off--no screen, just dark. My first Nuvi had a problem with the power button and wouldn't turn off or on unless I reefed on it with my finger pushing in the power button. I think I have a $500 piece of plastic. Any help before I throw this one in the trash?

    Even with a dead or battery the unit should operate correctly when powered off of the car adapter. If the unit will not come on while using the car adapter, then it's another issue, not the battery.

Sounds like a very dead battery, have you charged it with the wall socket yet? Are you sure the car charger works?

Hit the reset button on the back of the unit, under the attenae. That should fix the problem.

I heard that the new iPhone 5 does not include the Google Maps application, but instead uses Apple's new version? Is this correct?

Yes it is. Apple decided to replace one of its most useful applications, Google Maps with its own version, Apple Maps. Compared to Google Maps, Apple maps display much less information like certain street names, street directions, and subway stops. Moreover, Apple Maps does not have the street view feature that Google Maps has. It should be noted that Apple Maps is a brand new application and will certainly change for the better in time.

How can I change the language on screen? i dont understand the extrange languge on it to bring it back to english, thanks

So you've got that brand new shiny TomTom, turned it on, and .... OOPS! ... somehow you've selected the wrong language. Suddenly the entire interface is (literally) in some foreign language and you can't figure out how to get back to English. This has happened to quite a few people recently, so here is a short tutorial on how to get back to US English.TomTom Main MenuIf the device is currently turned on and you are anywhere but the primary map/driving view, it might be helpful to turn the device off. Then you can turn it back on to get yourself to the map/driving view. Now click anywhere on the map to take you to the Main Menu. Depending on the language you picked and your device, it should look something like the image on the right. Click on the wrench icon (highlighted in red here) which will take you to the 'Change Preferences' menu.TomTom Change LanguageNow that you are in the Change Preferences menu, keep tapping on the right arrow button to cycle through the menu until you see an icon with three flags on it. That is the 'Change Language' button. Click on that button to bring up a list of the languages installed on your device.TomTom English USUse the arrow keys up and down to find your language, likely 'English US' for most readers of this site. A dialog will appear asking "English US?" at which point you will say 'Yes'. Presto, change-o, you are back in busines

I can't view detail maps on my new Triton 400

The RED X is a symbol when the maps you have do not match the serial number of the GPS you are trying to run them on. You have to use the Adventure Pack and create NEW MAPS with the present GPS attached.

You can download new

I had this problem last year with my garmin 200 and when I called they said that I was out of the 60 day time window for a free map upgrade but they would give it to me anyway. They gave me detailed instructions on how to download a new map free of charge but they didnt explain which selection replaced what I already had on mine.
As a result, I downloaded the wrong maps and have much less detail. Even though its the "2009" version, its less acurate than my old maps were. But its worth a shot, better than paying for them.
