Garmin Nuvi 360 says memory full cant reset

Connect the unit up to a PC and try deleting some of the unused text-to- speech (TTS) voices. Keep only the ones that you need. Delete any unused photos or MP3's...and also any unused vehicle icons on the unit. When the unit is booting, it loads in all of the vehicle icons allowing you to change the selected vehicle, so this too uses up valuable memory.

Loeses satelite recption

Few reasons this may occur, most you can do something about.

1) Make sure the battery is fully charged before commencing journey ( USB or mains charger)
2) Plug the GPS in after the engine is started to protect the delicate SIIRF chip.NEVER Start engine with GPS connected.
3) Ensure you have a clear uninterrupted view ofd the sky. Place the GPS closer to the windscreen if poss and away from Phone..stereo or other electronic devices

4) If your unit supports it get an external antenna to plug in ( magnetic base mouse antenna)

5) check BAUD and PORT are set correctly.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

We have a Garmin nuvi 360 that we bought as a

You will have to contact Garmin support and have them change the registration which is matched to an e-mail address and the unit serial number. Device registration on Garmin's site is a "security feature" for two reasons: 1: People can buy lifetime map upgrades for a particular peice of hardware, and 2: GPS units are very high-theft devices.

E-mail support with the details (proof) of your purchase and ask them to change or reset the ownership information for your unit's serial number.

Gps not acquiring satellites

Press and hold the antenna signal strength icon on the display to bring up Satellite reception information. This will show you what, if any, satellites are being tracked. It will also tell you if you're in DEMO mode, in which case real satellite signals won't be used for the position.

Additionally, you can check the hardware by using the built-in hardware self-test features by pressing and holding the battery icon. Examine the information presented on multiple pages by pressing 'next'. Look for the hardware TEST button and press it. Wait several seconds for results.

These two steps should at least tell you where the problem is. If you ARE getting Satellite signals but they aren't being used by the hardware, you may need to reset your unit. Also check for firmware updates by using the Garmin Update utility available on their web site.

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
