Well, I live in Florida and left my nuvi in car on craddle unplugged. When I came back out it wouldn't turn on and felt hot so I brought it home and put it in front of fan for hour... still nothing so I heard if you pull on switch to left for a few seconds it resets it and that works...
Is this normal?

Sounds like it was overheated and after you cooled the unit and did a reset it operates ok again. There is a safety cutout built in to stop damaging circuits etc, and allows it to be reset when cooled down.
Suggest leaving it on the floor in car, or a cooler area than on the hot dashboard in a locked car without any ventilation.

Most of the heat issue can be avoided by stopping the direct sun light. If removing the unit from the mount is not an practical option, placing a white cloth over it may provide a reasonable protection most of the time. But will not handle excruciating heats, like leaving the car baking on a +105F sun. Under extreme heat, I doubt even under the seat or on the floor wont be enough.

Here in Australia along the NSW and Vic border it got to OVER 44 deg C for 14 days in a row this year, (111deg F.) and inside car, well ???? in excess of 55 degC/130deg F and my GPS still worked every time as it was left in storage box between seats.
Would guess that temperature on black dashboard was nearing 100 deg C as it will blister your hands very easily, so would definitely leave it in the cradle.

I have had similar problems with my Nuvi 760 when left in the vehicle in hot sun.
What works is to let the unit cool and do a restart.
Slide the Power Key to the left and hold in that position for 8 - 10 seconds.
Then turn the unit back on. All should function normally. Very Happy
