WARNING
Warning
Failure to avoid the following potentially
hazardous situations could result in an
accident or collision resulting in death or
serious injury.
When installing the unit in a vehicle, place the
unit securely so that it does not interfere with
vehicle operating controls or obstruct the driver’s
view of the road (see diagram).
Do not mount
where driver’s
field of vision
is blocked.
Do not place
unsecured on
the vehicle
dash.
Do not mount in front of an
airbag field of deployment.
When navigating, carefully compare information
displayed on the unit to all available navigation
sources, including information from street signs,
visual sightings, and maps. For safety, always
resolve any discrepancies or questions before
continuing navigation.
Always operate the vehicle in a safe manner.
Do not become distracted by the unit while
driving, and always be fully aware of all driving
conditions. Minimize the amount of time spent
viewing the screen of the unit while driving and
use voice prompts when possible. Do not input
destinations, change settings, or access any
functions requiring prolonged use of the unit’s
controls while driving. Pull over in a safe and
legal manner before attempting such operations.
The unit contains a non-user-replaceable,
rechargeable lithium-ion battery. The battery
may present a risk of fire or chemical burn if
mistreated.
•
Do not remove from the unit, heat unit above
140°F (60°C), or incinerate.
•
Dispose of unit properly. Contact your local
waste disposal department for information on
properly disposing of lithium-ion batteries.
WARNING: This product, its packaging, and its components contain chemicals known to the State
of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or reproductive harm. This Notice is being provided
in accordance with California’s Proposition 65. If you have any questions or would like additional
information, please refer to our Web site at www.garmin.com/prop65.

nüvi 310/360 Owner’s Manual
CAUTION
Caution
Failure to avoid the following potentially
hazardous situations may result in injury or
property damage.
The unit is designed to provide you with route
suggestions. It does not reflect road closures
or road conditions, traffic congestion, weather
conditions, or other factors that may affect safety
or timing while driving.
Use the unit only as a navigational aid. Do not
attempt to use the unit for any purpose requiring
precise measurement of direction, distance,
location, or topography. This product should
not be used to determine ground proximity for
aircraft navigation.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is
operated by the United States government,
which is solely responsible for its accuracy
and maintenance. The government’s system
is subject to changes which could affect the
accuracy and performance of all GPS equipment,
including the unit. Although the unit is a
precision navigation device, any navigation
device can be misused or misinterpreted and,
therefore, become unsafe.
Important Information
MAP DATA INFORMATION: One of the goals of Garmin is to provide customers with the most
complete and accurate cartography that is available to us at a reasonable cost. We use a combination of
governmental and private data sources, which we identify in product literature and copyright messages
displayed to the consumer. Virtually all data sources contain inaccurate or incomplete data to some
degree. This is particularly true outside the United States, where complete and accurate digital data is
either not available or prohibitively expensive.
NOTICE TO DRIVERS IN CALIFORNIA AND MINNESOTA: State law prohibits drivers in
California and Minnesota from using suction mounts on their windshields while operating motor
vehicles. Other Garmin dashboard or friction mounting options should be used. Garmin does not take any
responsibility for any fines, penalties, or damages that may be incurred as a result of disregarding this
notice. (See California Vehicle Code Section 26708(a); Minnesota Statutes 2005, Section 169.71.)
NOTICE: This Category II radiocommunication device complies with Industry Canada Standard RSS-310.

Caring for Your nüvi
Your nüvi contains sensitive electronic components that can be permanently damaged
if exposed to excessive shock or vibration. To minimize the risk of damage to your
nüvi, avoid dropping your nüvi and operating it in high shock/vibration environments.
Cleaning the nüvi
The nüvi is constructed of high quality materials and does not require user
maintenance other than cleaning. Clean the nüvi’s outer casing (not the touch screen)
using a cloth dampened with a mild detergent solution and then wipe dry. Avoid
chemical cleaners and solvents that can damage plastic components.
Cleaning the Touch Screen
Clean the touch screen with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth. Use water, isopropyl alcohol,
or eyeglass cleaner, if needed. Apply the liquid to the cloth and then gently wipe the
touch screen.

Protecting Your nüvi
Follow the cautions below to protect your nüvi from damage:
• Do not store the nüvi where prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures can
occur (such as in the trunk of a car), as permanent damage may result.
• Do not expose the nüvi to water. Contact with water can cause this nüvi to
malfunction.
• Do not leave your nüvi in plain sight when you leave your vehicle. Take your
nüvi with you or remove it from view to avoid theft.
• Though a PDA stylus can also be used to operate the touch screen, never
attempt this while operating a vehicle. Never use a hard or sharp object to
operate the touch screen, because it can damage the screen.
• To help prevent theft, use the Garmin Lock feature.
Changing the Fuse
An AGC/3AG 2 Amp, high-breaking capacity, 1500 A-rated fuse is located at the tip
of the vehicle adapter. Periodically, you may need to change the fuse. Unscrew the
black, round end piece and replace the fuse.

Updating the nüvi Software
Garmin periodically updates its software and map data. If you register your nüvi, you
will receive notification of updates. To check for system software updates, go to
www.garmin.com/products/nuvi310/ or www.garmin.com/products/nuvi360/, and
select Software Updates. To check for map software updates, go to
www.garmin.com/unlock/update.jsp.

nüvi Troubleshooting
Problem/Question
Solution/Answer
My battery gauge does not
seem accurate.
Allow the nüvi to fully discharge and then fully
charge it (without interrupting the charge cycle).

Battery Information
Your nüvi contains an internal (non-removable) lithium-ion battery. Contact your local
waste disposal department for information on properly disposing of the nüvi.
Battery Tips
• Your nüvi’s battery should last 4 to 8 hours, depending on usage.
• To extend the battery life, reduce the time the backlight stays on. On the Menu
page, select Settings > Display > Backlight Timeout to change the setting.
• Close the antenna when you do not need to receive GPS signals.
• To increase the accuracy of the battery gauge, fully discharge the battery and
then fully charge it. You should not need to do this very often.
• Do not leave your nüvi in direct sunlight, and avoid prolonged exposure to
excessive heat.

About GPS Satellite Signals
Your nüvi must acquire GPS (Global Positioning System) satellite signals to operate.
If you are indoors, near tall buildings or trees, or in a parking garage, the nüvi might
not acquire satellites. Go outside to an area free from tall obstructions to use your
nüvi, or close the antenna to turn off the GPS and use it indoors.
When the nüvi acquires satellite signals, the signal strength bars on the Menu page are
green
. When it loses satellite signals, the bars turn red or disappear
.
Touch the signals strength bars in the upper-left corner of the Menu page to view GPS
information. Touch any where on the screen to return to the Menu page.

Using a Remote Antenna
You can use an optional external remote antenna. This is very helpful when operating
the nüvi in a vehicle with a coated windshield or an in-screen (in the window) heating
system, which can block GPS signals. Connect the antenna to the connector located
on the back of the nüvi. To purchase, go to the Garmin Web site at
www.garmin.com/products/nuvi310/ or www.garmin.com/products/nuvi360/, and
select the Accessories link.
