    My Garmin Nuvi 350 was used in the San Diego, CA area this week, it worked fine getting me to my first destination and failed to track on the roads that I was on near the Barnardo area. After returning, to my home in Memphis, TN, and resetting the Garmin to Tennessee, it is still tracking as if I were in transit to the car rental address put in the system yesterday. The unit is simulating the drive back to downtown San Diego giving directions as I sit at my computer in Tennessee. I have tried several times to reset the unit, with no sucess.

    My 350 will sometimes acquire a signal at the beginning of a trip, then quickly lose it and goes into "acquiring satellite" mode and never recovers. It does not help to turn it off and on again. The thing is that up to today, it has been working fine. Any chance the GPS system is being interrupted? Sure seems that way. Anyway, any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Acquiring satellites

The problem might be that your GPS is not able to connect to the satellite.
I'll see what the problem might be.

I don't have Satellite signal! I tried to acquiere satellite signal with my Garmin Nuvi 1350! The screen always says locating satellites but nothin happens! The satellite bars are not green!What can I do...


Try fully charging the unit and leaving it stationary for about 20-30 minutes if you still dont lock satellites try giving the unit a firmware updates using Garmins WebUpdater software here is a link.

How do I change the start location?

The "current location" is based on the stellite tracking of your GPS. Turn it on OUTSIDE for 10-15 minutes and allow it to get a lock on the GPS satellites and it will get your actual location. There is no way for you to "force" a current location on the GPS.

Manual is available her:

Garmin nuvi starting location is wrong

I tried to fix a problem similar to this for 1and 1/2 hours. Ahhh! However, after raising the antenna, (in back of device), the satellite picked up my exact location. Hope this helps.

Garmin 350 Problem

Take it outside and turn it on.  Within a couple of minutes it should locate the satellite and tell you where you are.
