    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.

    I would not attempt this repair yourself unless you have soldering skills and experience with surface mount technology and the proper equipment to unsolder & solder surface mount parts.



    You take the risk of further damaging your Nuvi.

In order to reset Garmin device or enter into maintenance mode, perform one of the following procedures:

Power off Garmin unit. Press on continuously the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press “Yes” to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.
above works on Garmin Nuvi 660, 680 series.
Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen, and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode.

The touch screen of my nuvi 360 go crazy when antenna is open


Going to say it's rf interferance that makes things go crazy. If the gps unit works fine witrh the antennae in the down or closed position then leave it like this. If not you might have to try moving the unit around to different spots on your dash and hope that one of them will work. Oh as to the reason, the plastic is a little thicker on the back of the unit wqhere the antennae is and the antennaes power when it is up is able to radiate a little better since the top of the antennae is the part that gets the power.
Hope this helps

Garmin c550 GPS-Won't turn on at all.


push and Hold the power button down while you push reset, keep power button pressed til it boots again. If it does not, and it's in warranty ship it to garmin. If it's out of warranty, have someone open it up and remove the battery for a couple of minutes.

Nuvi 360


The screen has two connectors, one for power, another for data, just try to reconnect again those little cables, and it should be fine. When I opened mine the first time, my screen comes up all white, and it was because one of those cables.

I have a video from the last time I open my Nuvi350, I will try to post it on this days, in order to give you some idea on how to do it.

By now, I wish you luck, and be patient.
