    Note to all Garmin Nuvi 350 Users with a Defective On/Off Switch:



    1. In order to repair this problem, you need to have surface mount desoldering/soldering skills as well as the appropriate soldering tools and case dissassembly tools. Without these things, you take the risk of further damaging your Nuvi, possibly making it impossible to repair.



    2. Resoldering the switch is not going to resolve the issue long-term. In some cases, the switch can not be resoldered and additional rework must be performed.



    3. In order to fix this problem once and for all, the switch needs to be mechanically secured better to the main PCB using pre-tinned buswire. In addition, a custom-fit piece of plastic needs to be glued behind the switch to give it additional support.



    FAILURE TO DO THE ABOVE WILL RESULT IN THE ON/OFF SWITCH BREAKING AGAIN.... GUARANTEED!



    For a reasonable price, I will repair youf Nuvi on/off switch and put in the modications so it doesn't happen again. Repair takes 1 day, units are sent back the next day. Please contact me at KS3R at sharc dot net if interested. I have references.

Garmin nuvi 350 - broken screen


If the LCD is actually leaking (big stain on the screen) then it cannot be repaired, only replaced.

Replacing an LCD is a relatively simple job on any GPS, it is normally just a case of opening the casing, disconnecting the ribbon cable on the old screen and putting the new one in its place. As long as you are careful and put everything back where you found it then you should have no problems.

You can check all the parts suppliers in your area or online for a new screen, but for the lowest cost solution I would suggest searching ebay for a faulty nuvi 350 with an intact screen. If you can find one you will probably get it for less than the cost of a new part, plus whatever bits you have left you can always resell. There are always people wanting to buy spares for satnavs.

My garmin 350nuvi will not acquire sattelites


Make sure to flip your antenna horizontally or 90 degrees and not vertically or 180 dgrees. I see to many people try to use their older nuvi this way and it does not function well.
Try also updating your unit with the latest firmware from Garmin, this helps sometimes.
You may have moved to a location that is far away from the last location your Garmin nuvi 350 was last use, try to keep your unit on for 30 minutes or more to see if it will acquire GPS sattelites.
Last, certain vehicles have shielded windshields and GPS does not work well with these windshield, this can be eaisly verify by simply taking your nuvi 350 out of your vehicle and turn it on with a clear view to the sky, if that still does not work, it could be a defective GPS receiver or GPS connection in which case you should consider sending it in to Auto Nav 2000 Plus, Inc in San Jose CA or Garmin.
You may also consider replacing your nuvi 350 with a newer model nuvi with fresher map.

Good luck

Nuvi 350 System Software Missing


If you have a nuvi 350 download the software to your computer and then load the software onto a formatted sd card. Insert the sd card and bootup the Nuvi 350. The sofware will then load onto the Nuvi 350. If you have a Nuvi 200 I would think it works the same but I have not tried it.
Hope this helps

Garmin nuvi 350 9 months old


Have you ever tried updating the firmware with garmins webupdater?
Have you had this issue with a fully charged battery.
Do you hear anything rattle in the device when you shake it....I had a spIII color with similar issues, found out that one of the circuit board mounting screws was travelling around in the case.
If this is the case, and you are tech savvy you could open the GPS and probably find the culprit. If not ship it back to Garmin, for it is still under warranty.

Opening the Garmin Nuvi 350


Hi:
It can be easyto open. There is a couple of nuts behind the antenna, you have to remove them, then you need to remove the antenna, in order to do this you need to find a pin in the base of the antenna, and slide it to the center, and this free your antenna, then you can reach a couple a nuts located under the antenna, remove them and then you will be free to open your nuvi. I did this cause my power button was broken, I resolded and now is working pretty fine. the picture is my nuvi 350 opened.b67f991.jpg
