Try this, start your engine and then plug in the nuvi car adapter. The nuvi should turn on by itself. If the nuvi doesn't turn on either the adapter is defective or the cigarette lighter is no supplying power. Try the same test on another car if it works then I would say that the cigarette lighter power supply on the first car is defective, but if it doesn't then I would say that the nuvi adapter is defective. BTW there is a fuse inside the nuvi power adapter which might have blown.

Are you using the same port on the Nuvi to connect the car adapter and the ac charger, or two different ones? If not, then the jack could be broken (solder joint, pin?).

You should only see the computer icon when plugging the 350 into a USB port on the PC. If you see it when plugging in a car charger/adapter, then there may be a problem with the mini-USB port on the 350 or the charger is an after-market charger that is not electrically compatible with a Garmin charger.

Where you plug in the charger is broke. Someone tried to plug in the wrong type charger and now the piece inside is loose. It will not charge.

This is your best option since additional devices need to be installed with SWS adaptors by technicians.

My bracket for my suction mount broke so I cant use a cigerette lighter charger is there another way to charge my GPS


If you were using a standard Nuvi 3xx cradle, pull the charger cord from the back of the cradle and plug it into the side of the Nuvi, into the mini-USB port. You can charge it that way.

Cant use the garmin 350 while charging


The solution is really easy. Works in the car or usb charger or whatever.
Once you insert the car charger, wait till the pc connection picture comes.
Than unplug the car charger.
Re-insert it as soon as the picture goes off.
Voila. It is ready to use now!

Garmin gps won't charge while driving


If the Nuvi won't charge when connected to charge but charges on USB, then the charger port is faulty.

If the Nuvin does not charge at all , then the battery must be replaced.

New Nuvi 760 that won't work


Using the PC to charge a Nuvi is not the correct way to charge. Use either the AC wall charger or DC car charger. Many PC USB ports can not supply enough current to charge a Nuvi.

Nuvi 350 does not hold a battery charge.I see no way to change battery and the owner manual does not say how.


How old is the unit? Does it show that its charging with a lightning bolt over the battery indicator? Don't try to charge it via the USB port. Try the car adapter or AC wall charger.

Email me at ks3r at sharc dot net and I can replace the battery for you.

AC charging problem


okay if it charges with your DC, and it gives you plomebs with the AC, i would only charge in the car because your AC charger must not be changing the current to volts and you can easily blow it up... you can buy another charger and that should solve your problem

Garmin nuvi 360 power problem


You'll need to open the case and replace the battery. Batteries can be purchased online here or a couple other places on the web by searching for "nuvi 360 replacement battery". I'd get the 1400mah or greater for a replacement, it'll burn a little longer than the weaker models. If the unit operates when plugged into the charger, then the fuse and cable are good. Open the case by removing the retaining screws, then carefully prying the unit apart. The new battery simply plugs into the connector after removing the old one.
