Does it show a picture of a satnav connected to a computer when plugged into the car charger? Sometimes this happens because the charger plug is not fully pushed into the back of the satnav even though it feels like it is. Pushing it in further may solve the problem.

My Garmin Nuvi 200 thinks it is connected to a computer when I plug it into my car charger. WHY??


I have the same problem. Works fine on it's own, but when it is plugged in to the charger it goes to a black screen with a computer symbol. I thought that it was to tell me to update the system as it is just over 1 year old. But not sure. I then have to keep on unplugging it and plugging it back in. (comes on while plugged in randomley). Hope we get some feed back as I need the garmin all day every day.

Garmin Nuvi 250 stuck in mass storage mode when car charger is plugged in. It seems to think that my car charger is the cpu and not a charging device only. Please help, this is extremely annoying


Make sure you have the rite charger. Garmin will only work with a garmin charger. You may have accidently picked up a blackberry charger or something. Hope this helps

New Garmin 260 W won't do anything when plugged in.


Your PC may not be able to charge it. If it does it's only a trickle charge. May take a day or two

Garmin nuvi 260w not operating while plugged in


If you are trying to use your unit in the car via the USB port and not the supplied cable, it will not work. You must use the bracket that came with the unit or the specific charger that came with the unit. The pins in the Garmin USB charger only use two pins whereas a regular charge cable uses 4.

Garmin car charger


There are thee ways to charge the Garmin 750, 1: thru a car cord that plugs into the base that your unit mounts on. 2. Thru an AC charger. 3: thru the USB port on the Garmin unit itself. In your case the car cord plugs into the base that mounts your unit to the window. If that is not working, check that you are getting power from your car receptical. Check by plugging your Phone in or buying an adapter at Radio Shack that checks it. Also check the plug that goes into your car recepticle. Your manual tells how to check the fuse that is located in the end of the plug. If neither of these work your mount connection is bad. Hope this helps

Turn on your garmin out of the car, connect to a PC via USB cable and see if the battery indicator goes away. If it does then the USB to PC cable is working and charging the unit. To test the car adapter, you can unscrew the tip of the plug to examine the fuse. Most Garmin car charger units have a light on them that ilimunates when you plug it in and turn the ignition. It could be that the plug is just loose in the socket. The picture shows the unit running on battery. If you plug in the usb cable and this indicator goes away, then it should be charging.

YES YOU NEED A usb MINI CORD 2.0 . iF YOU GO TO ANY STORE WHERE THEY SELL COMPUTERS THEY WILL HAVE IT JUST BRING YOUR GARMIN UNIT SO THEY CAN SEE THE TYPE PLUG YOU NEED. iT ALSO WORKS AS A CHARGER IF IT IS PLUGED INTO YOUR COMPUTER.
AFTER YOU HAVE THE CORD JUST PLUG INTO A USB PORT AND GOT TO THE GARMIN SITE. . THERE YOU CAN DOWN LOAD THE CARS FOR FREE iF YOU JUST PURCHASED YOUR GARMIN 200w THEN REGISTER IT THERE AND YOU WILL GET A FREE UP DATE TO THE MAPS . FREE FOR THE FIRST 90 DAYS. AFTER YOU REGISTER.
fyi IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO DOWN LOAD THE UPDATE. ABOUT 4HR ! THEN ANOTHER 1.5 HRS TO PUT IT INTO THE GARMIN UNIT.
