help. my laptop wont recognize my nuvi 350


I downloaded the poi loader and put a couple of files onto the nuvi yestday. I wanted to try and add some music to the player today and the nuvi isn't seen as a known usb device. Not sure if it is the poi files,but it is the only thing new. anyway to get rid of them to see if this will take care of the problem?

any help would be most appreciated. I am just getting used to this "spooky" technology

my goal in life is to never ask for directions, and never get lost again.

uninstalling POI loader

POI Loader should work fine with everything else, but you might try uninstalling it to see if it's somehow the cause of your troubles.

The POI Loader software runs on your laptop (not the GPS), so you can uninstall it from control-panel / add-or-remove-programs. Look for "Garmin POI Loader" on the list of installed program.

You might also try connecting your nuvi to another computer to see if the problem is with your laptop or the nuvi. Please share how things turn out.


re-installed the program,

re-installed the program, and restarted everything and it is all working again. Not surt what happened, but as long as it works who cares. thanks
