    system softeware missing after I tried to update to 5.0. Computer won't recognize USB device. Nothing seems to work.

  • on7tim7 Dec 04, 2007

    Last week I tried to upgrade my Nuvi350 software and I did not read all the installation requirements and with it’s USB cable I connected the unit to my new computer which uses Windows Vista 64. I ran the installation program and everything looks fine only when I turned the unit on it shows “System Software missing”. I have tried to fix the problem reloading on a XP machine the same software it had before my error but it said

    ”software corrupted”.

    I wrote to Garming support and I haven’t got an answer yet and I use my Nuvi every day every where and I go, I am lost with out it. Please, if some one can help me I’ll appreciate it very much.

    My PC does not recognize my unit when plugged in. The screen on the unit shows a picture of a PC telling me that the connection is ready.



    I need to update the mapping but I am unable to on the net.



    I downloaded webupdater and at one point it did not recognize or found my unit.



    I found a Garmin CD for updated mapping at Best Buy but I don't know if it is for my particular model.



    I would like to update my software if needed and the map.

  • babber May 07, 2008

    I loaded updated my NUVI 350 firmware with the 5.4 version. After installing on my device fails to load the software and reboots itself. I have reset the device several times but with no improvement. Now, when I turn on the Nuvi350 it says "loader loading...", "Software loading" and then backs out to the copyrite screen. To make things worse, my pc now does not recognize the device and does not assign it a drive. With that I am unable to reload the software.

Try this: Hold the power buuton down, you will see on the lower screen the word "Pre Booting - ". Keep holding the power button for about 60 second, then you will see on the lower screen "Booting".
This time, release power button; system will reboot and loading map... again.
I got the same problem, after research on the web. Nick 99990_0 had post this solution on (his Nuvi 660) but it work for my Nuvi 350 too. Good luck.

On my unit the problem is the USB cable. Swap cables (with a USB camera cable) and the problem should be resolved.

Format the GPS, rename it as Host or Garmin. then hit the reset button for 3 second. Turn it back on and then connect it to the computer and reinstall all files.

I was able to successfully update my Nuvi to Vers 5.10 with my computer which runs Vista but the 32 Bit system. From what I read on other Forums it would appear that the Nuvi runs on 32 bits. Start Updater and follow the on screen instructions. It's simple but it would appear that it takes more than one attempt. I was successful on my 2nd try, others have taken 4 or more. If a couple of more re-installs still don't work you can e-mail tech support at techsupp@garmin.com I have found them to very helpful and fairly prompt (usually within 24 hrs) Good Luck

SOURCE: Nuvi 350 System Software Missing

If you have a nuvi 350 download the software to your computer and then load the software onto a formatted sd card. Insert the sd card and bootup the Nuvi 350. The sofware will then load onto the Nuvi 350. If you have a Nuvi 200 I would think it works the same but I have not tried it.
Hope this helps

Garmin Nuvi 260w not recognized by computer


Hi,
Take a look at this site, http://www.garmin.be/missing.html Download and unzip the software, plug your garmin in the USB and start the updater.exe program. It gets you started again. Later on you can use the Webupdater to get possible newer software..
It worked for me and my Zumo550
Goodluck
