Desription .........  Amazing things come in small packages: take the Garmin Nuvi 350 Personal Travel Assistant and GPS Navigator for example. Getting from place to place is a joy, wherever you go, with the Nuvi 350’s preloaded maps and convenient portable hand-held size, along with a generous 3.5” touch screen. This versatile high-tech gadget from Garmin fits in the palm of your hand, yet contains a powerful GPS navigator, as well as an extensive traveler’s reference and digital entertainment utilities like an MP3 player and JPEG photo viewer. No, the Garmin Nuvi 350 is no ordinary GPS Navigator – it’s a powerful hand-held computer that truly lives up to its name as a personal Travel Assistant.

The sky’s the limit with the Garmin Nuvi 350: read audio books, check out world time zones, convert currency and measurements, brush up on a foreign language – or simply get around town via the shortest route using the Nuvi 350’s sophisticated GPS navigation system that constantly pulls info from satellites traveling above the horizon. Garmin has loaded the Nuvi with a powerful text-to-speech feature that calls out the names of streets and directions while you drive, so you can keep your eyes on the road. The Nuvi 350 Personal Travel Assistant and GPS Navigator is also compatible with the GTM 10 FM TMC traffic receiver, to provide you with up to the minute traffic conditions. The Nuvi’s 700 MB of internal memory (a number that puts many personal computers to shame) makes the Nuvi a delight to operate. Garmin loads the Nuvi with city maps of the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico. Optional software like a language guide and a travel guide are loadable to your Nuvi by means of SD cards.

Garmin Nuvi Switch Problems : For those of you that own a Nuvi 350/360/660 with an on/off power switch problem....don't worry you're not alone - The same thing happened to me.

Here's why it happens:

The on/off switch is a surface mount switch that is mounted vertically off of the main PC board.

The problem is, that there is no support behind the switch, so when you press down on the button, the very small solder leads of the switch are stressed and eventually the switch breaks off from the main PC board. This is a design flaw and it could have been easily prevented by gluing a small piece of custom-fit plastic between the rear of the switch and the SD card housing to give the switch support. Also, the solder pads for the mechanical connections of the switch could have been made bigger, allowing for more surface area and more solder application.

Another possibility of failure because of poor support, is that the switch body may have bent down and away from the case's on/off flap that pushes the switch. There is a plastic stop pin in the case that prevents the flap from going down too far. So, if the switch has been bent down as much as 1/16", the flap will never reach the button on the switch.

Can it be fixed? Yes...... but it's not just a simple matter of just resoldering the switch. Without fixing the original support issue, the problem will certainly happen again. In some cases, the printed circuit board tracks may have lifted up off the board and need to be bypassed with wires.

The proper way to fix this problem is to improve the mechanical mounting of the switch by securing its metal body to the motherboard groundplane with pre-tinned buswire. The mechanical leads of the switch are not enough to secure the switch to the board. A custom-fit plastic block needs to be glued between the rear body of the switch and the SD card housing. Bottom line, if the switch can't move, the leads won't be stressed causing them to break.

It's very unlikely that the switch itself is bad. The life cycle of this switch is 250,000 cycles. For example, if you pressed it 20 times per day for an entire year, that would add up to 7,300 presses per year. Divide 250,000 cycles by 7,300 and it would take 34.25 years before the switch would fail. No doubt the switch will outlive the Nuvi itself.

Taking the Nuvi apart itself requires the right tools. The internal flex cables for the antenna, touch screen and LCD screen are delicate and can be torn easily if you're not careful. The antenna flex cable runs through the swivel antena shaft and is very delicate.

You will need a surface mount desoldering/soldering station with illuminated magnifier. A standard soldering iron is far too big to solder the leads and will overheat the solder pads, lifting them off the board. All work should also be performed with proper grounding to eliminate static charge issues.

To determine if your Nuvi's switch is broken with no other issues, please confirm the following:

1. Pressing the on/off switch has no effect and the switch feels mushy
when pressed - no soft click.

2. The unit powers up and operates normally when using the car adapter
or USB adapter and can be turned off by pressing the reset button.

If the above conditions appear to be the symptoms of your Nuvi 350,
then most likely, the on/off switch has broken off from the main
printed circuit board.

Please contact me at KS3R at sharc dot net if you would like further information about this problem and how to get it quickly repaired.

Best wishes,

My Nuvi 350 failed : Anyone here encountered failed direction points from your GPS?
I had a bad experience with my Nuvi 350 when I traveled to Niagara Falls in Canada. I was totally dependent on my GPS that time but I think it failed when I was trying to "Avoid Tolls". I'm just curious if anyone of you has experienced going to wrong directions just because you were avoiding tolls but your GPS isn't working well?

Garmin Nuvi 260 vs 350 : Don’t know exactly which one to buy. Want to buy the device for car navigation. The qualities that I am searching for on any of these device is screen quality, i.e. color, clarity, etc. and also the sound quality which is the most appropriate attribute for car navigation. I am torn between 260 and 350. Which one is better?

Great GPS for my car : I am enjoying with Nuvi 350, which is a very good device, but it has got a very poor database, most of the time its accurate but there are many streets and location which are not inlcuded in it, otherwise the device is ok, has a good interface and very easy to be carry around,but need some modifications to become the best.
