Question about Garmin nuvi 350 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I have a Garmin Nuvi 350 GPS. It will not charge. When I plug it in to recharge it shows a picture of a UBS cable and a Computer meaning it is in Mass Storage mode. However, I can't seem to get it out of Mass Storage mode even if I reset the unit. How can I get the Garmin to charge?

    Same problem. Don't know what to do. Haven't tried anything except to plug it into another port in my car. Neither work.

    Similar problem, sometimes it starts up and then it won't then it will again. This makes no sense and Garmin is slow to respond to my questions.

    Are you using a "real" Garmin charger or an off brand?

    Have any of you done a recent software update?

Hi,

Try a new battery, they are known to fail in these devices,

Easy swap, few screws.
Hope this helps

Garmin shows picture of computer


Hello,

When the Garmin shows the picture of a computer, it means that the Nuvi is in mass storage mode. This mode is used to load software and map updates to the Nuvi and will usually go into this mode when connected to a computer or improper USB cable.
If this is occurring when it is connected to the vehicle power cable, chances are that the vehicle power cable is the wrong one.
You may also want to contact Garmin Tech Support for assistance.

This place has the battery and tools come with it!. its super easy and way cheaper than buying a new garmin. 2 screws and unplug the old battery and plug in the new. I did mine and I never messed with the internals before.

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.

Charging Garmin 350 battery


I guess it should be fully green, it takes several hours, and you wont kill it if you let it charge overnight.

Garmin Nuvi shuts itself off after only seconds during navigation


Is the battery charged? What does the battery indicator say? If you are using it in the car, is the power cord connected and working properly? If it is working correctly, you should see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph showing that it is connected to an external power source and that it is charging.
