    Default nuvi 350 not recognized

    Hello dear Reader,

    After I accidently removed the basemap, my garmin is not functioning annymore.
    After someone from Dixons tried to reinstall the maps from cd my nuvi 350 is not longer recognized as a Garmin when I plug in usb.
    Windows suggests to format, I did not do so.
    Ubuntu sees a usb device but is not showing files.

    Garmin support tells me to buy a new one, but I still like to have this nuvi working again.

    Can you help me out?

    Teddylinux.

    dear catymag,
    Thank you for reading and answering.

    I (re)installed usb drivers, and followed the link, I do have a original cd and product key but the Garmin is still not recognized as a Garmin, only as a drive letter.
    When I " safely remove device " it shows up as Garmin usb!, but otherwise windows suggest to format.
    I tried to install some software I found : nuvi_sys.rgn and nuvi300_540. At that time the display showed up with the message : "loader". (I was happy for a short while, but no cigar)
    From the secret pages inside the Garmin (accessed by holding down the upper right corner from the display) I learned that I lost the ROM and the Basemap.
    Both failed to pass during test. RAM and ASIC passed.

    Should I format the Garmin at this point or should I continue by trying this way?
    Have a nice day!
