Getting Started
Mounting the nüvi on the Windshield
Check your state and local traffic laws before mounting. Currently, state laws in California and Minnesota prohibit
drivers from using suction mounts on their windshields while operating motor vehicles. Other Garmin dashboard or
friction mounting options should be used. See the Important Safety and Product Information guide for more details.
If you want to mount the nüvi on your dashboard instead, see page 55.
To mount the nüvi using the suction cup mount:
1. Plug the power cable into the back of the mount. Plug the other end into a 12Volt receptacle in your vehicle.
2. Clean and dry your windshield and the suction cup with a lint-free cloth. Place
the suction cup on the windshield.
3. Flip the lever back, toward the windshield.
4. Flip up the GPS antenna. Fit the bottom of your nüvi into the cradle.
5. Tilt the nüvi back until it snaps into place.

Using Bluetooth Technology
Using Bluetooth® Technology
If you have a phone with Bluetooth wireless technology, and your phone is supported
by the nüvi (see www.garmin.com/bluetooth), you can use your nüvi as a handsfree device. Hands-free phone features on the nüvi are only available if your phone
supports that feature using Bluetooth technology (for example, phone book, voice
dial, and call waiting). You can speak into the microphone on the front of the nüvi,
and listen to the conversation over the nüvi speaker. To use this hands-free feature,
you must pair (connect) your phone with the nüvi. You can initiate this pairing from
the phone settings or from the nüvi settings. Refer to your phone’s documentation for
more information.
To pair using the phone settings:
1. Access the phone’s Settings menu.

Using an FM TMC Traffic Receiver
Using FM Traffic
If you are using a traffic receiver, you can view traffic information on your nüvi.
When a traffic message is received, your nüvi displays the incident on the map, and
you can change your route to avoid the traffic incident. For traffic data coverage areas,
refer to the Garmin Web site at www.garmin.com/fmtraffic.
Note: The FM traffic receiver and nüvi must be in data range of an FM station
transmitting traffic data to receive traffic information.
Note: Garmin is not responsible for the accuracy of the traffic information. The
FM traffic receiver simply receives signals from the traffic service provider and
displays that information on your nüvi.
Note: You can only access the traffic information if the nüvi is connected to an
FM traffic receiver.
Connecting the FM Traffic Receiver
1. Place your nüvi into the mount, and plug it into the 12-Volt adapter.
2. Plug the mini-USB cable from the FM traffic receiver into the USB connector
on the side of the nüvi.

About SaversGuide
The SaversGuide® is an optional accessory that is available only in North America.

About Garmin TourGuide™
The Garmin TourGuide allows your nüvi to play third-party, GPS-guided audio tours.
These audio tours, for example, can take you on a route while playing interesting facts
about historical sites along the way. As you travel, the audio information is triggered
by GPS signals.
If you have loaded TourGuide files on your nüvi, go to the Menu page and then touch
Where to > My Locations > Custom POIs.
To change the settings for your Custom POIs, touch

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 anywhere on the screen to return to the Menu page.

Appendix
Removing the Cradle from the Mount
To remove the cradle from the mount arm, turn the cradle to one side. The cradle
snaps off of the ball socket. To replace the cradle, snap the cradle on the ball socket.
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
● Do not store the nüvi where prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures can
occur (such as in the windshield), as permanent damage may result.
● Do not expose the nüvi to water. Contact with water can cause the nüvi to
malfunction.
56
nüvi 310/360/370 Owner’s Manual
Appendix
● 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.
● Keep the nüvi in the leather carrying case when not in use.
Avoiding Theft
● To avoid theft, remove the nüvi and mount from sight when not in use. Remove
the mark on the windshield left by the suction cup.
● Use the Garmin Lock™ feature.
Changing the Fuse
An AGC/3AG 2 Amp, high-breaking capacity, 1500 mA-rated fuse is located
at the tip of the vehicle adapter. Periodically, you may need to change Unscrew
the fuse. Unscrew the black, round end piece and replace the fuse.
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.
● Do not leave your nüvi in direct sunlight, and avoid prolonged exposure to
excessive heat.

Battery Gauge
The battery icon in the upper-right corner of the Menu page indicates the status of the
internal battery. Periodically, you might notice that the battery gauge is not completely
accurate. To increase the accuracy of the battery gauge, fully discharge the battery and
then fully charge it without interrupting the charging. For best results, do not unplug
the nüvi until it is totally charged.
