Question about Garmin GPS

3 Answers

The lithium battery to my Garmin Nuvi 350 is giving out. My husband has figured out how to open the case, and I've tracked down replacement batteries on line. The picture of the batteries online looks as though there are two wires coming out of the battery. Does installing it require any soldering or any other tricks that we should know about? Thanks, Linda

No soldering should be required as far as installing the Batteries is concerned. You may find Sockets/Holders, the batteries to be inserted in.

If you can't find out the Holder/Socket, contact Professional Serviceman.

Our nuvi 350 has been sitting in its box for several months/need it now for a trip and cannot get it to charge. Could it possibly need a battery? Worked fine last time we needed it.

You've most likely correctly diagnosed the fault for yourself.

Lithium rechargeable batteries like the one in your Garmin are damaged if stored uncharged for any length of time, so you'll need to replace the battery. They're not designed to be user-replaceable on most Garmins, but if you search the web for "nuvi 350 battery" you should easily find a supplier and there will be videos to show you how to do it on your model or a closely related model. Click here for one example of an instructional video.

I haven't given you a link to a battery supplier as I don't know which country you're in nor whether you want an original (Garmin) battery, a generic compatible battery or one of the upgrade versions which give longer battery life. Personally, I'd recommend that you avoid the latter type as a new standard capacity battery usually has plenty of life in it when charged.

Good luck and please take a moment to rate my answer.

I can't do it for you, but I have done it myself. See the instructions on my webpage at Pictures and everything, along with where I got my battery and the part number, etc. Warning, there are many opportunities to damage your unit doing this. Not for the novice.

How do I replace the battery in my Garmin Nuvi 350 ?

There are two hidden (torx T5) screws underneath where the antenna pivot. You will have to remove the antenna first in order to get to these two torx screws. Then you can use one of those plastic case opener (iPod case opener work great).

Do not try prying the unit apart until you have removed the antenna and the two hidden torx screws, otherwise you will destroy your Nuvi.
