Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver

3 Answers

Garmin Nuvi stopped working and won't restart

We were driving down the road when our GPS shut down. We have been unable to get it to turn on again even when plugged into power at home and it isn't recognized when plugged into the computer.

    Pressing the power button does not power the unit on, even after it has been charged.
    Some background: A couple of week's ago, the device suddenly began to have a VERY slow response. I had to hold the power button for a couple of minutes for it to power on, and then it took >30 minutes to finish booting. I had to press the screen for >1 minute for it to register the key stroke. Eventually, when I could use it, it would play back a short burst of the driving instructions, then stop for a minute, then continue in these spurts.
    After a few days, it suddenly started working properly again.
    A few days ago, when I tried to turn it on (I had been using it regularly, with no issue), it would not power on at all, even when I held down the power button for a long time. 1 time in about 50 tries, it did power on, but the response was as slow as it was previously.
    Pressing the reset would turn it off.
    It is a Nuvi-350, that is just about 1 year old.

    gps is off

    I was charging the unit on 12v cigarette lighter power, I accidently disconnected the unit from the power source, and now the unit will not power up.
    Twice, while holding down the power button, the unit started to come on, displaying a message "pre booting" (or something to that affect).
    Thanks.

Got a Garmin Nuvi 260. Same problem. I read the booklet. There's a reset button on the bottom. Disconnect from power. Push the reset button. Connect back to power. Now it works. The reset button is tiny and looks more like just text on the bottom sticker than it does a button. But push it anyway.

I faced a similar problem..it stopped working on the road and would not restart. Try resetting the system. Lift the antenna and find a small reset button. After resettting it started working normally

Why my garmin nuvi 2595 LMT GPS is taking me off freeways


Some GPS has this problem once in a while. When it happens, turn the GPS off and restart it again. Problems should be solved.

Wont stop loading maps


If your garmin nuvi wont stop loading maps, then you need to reaet the unit to get it to work perfectly fine once again. Try to hold down the power button for about 15 seconds and the gps receiver will restart, this time it will load normally and show you your maps.
If that does not solve the problem, then you need to back up your maps then format your gps receiver from a computer then restore the software and maps back on, that should do the job for you.
Hope this helps.

While driving my Garmin will just shut down. It acts like a cord is not plugged in tightly but they are. Have to restart & call up recent address to keep going. I'm on vacation so I don't have any ID...


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes, or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.
