Cigarette lighter socket came out, no charging


You probably pulled the wiring plug off the back of the socket. Or the fuse went when the socket came out.

Automatic shutdown garmin 660 when car is turned off and power in car remains


Many car cigarette lighter sockets turn off when the ignition is turned off. Are you sure there is power at the socket at all times? Did you try plugging in another device to verify?

I bought at Garmin Nuvi 1300 GPS for my daughter for Christmas. She just tried to use it for the first time yesterday and it doesn't fit the cigarette lighter. What can we do now???


It's strange if the plug doesn't fit the cigarette lighter socket. They can be a tight fit so if you find it a little big for the socket try putting pressure on it to push it in. If it absolutely won't fit you can buy cigarette lighter plugs in car accessory shops. If you can get one that does fit you can cut the one that's on the lead off and fit the new one.

If you cannot get any plug to fit you can get the lead wired permanently into the car. Any garage would be able to do it for you.

How do I plug my Garmin into a Hyandai?


Most modern vehicles have more than one cigarette lighter socket, there are usually at least one extra for outboard accessories. If this is no the case then you nay have to install a socket multiplier, these are usually available anywhere that sell auto parts or accessories, it will plug into your current socket and provide you with however many sockets you require. (available in 2, 3, 4 socket configurations)
Or you can hard wire one of these multipliers into the car.

Hope this is of some help.

Auto shut down screen does appear when ignition is turned off


This is telling me that your cigarette lighter socket has +12VDC applied to it all the time EVEN when the ignition is turned OFF. This is not the fault of your Nuvi. On some cars, like Hondas, the cigarette lighter socket powers off when your ignition is turned off.

If you want it to turn off with the ignition, then you will have to power it from a +12VDC source that is controlled by the ignition.

Installation / wiring


Yes, you can do what you said above. The only issue I see is that you should still add an inline fuse between the GPS and the power source you will be connecting it to.** SEE NOTE BELOW **
The cigarette lighter plug has a fuse in it. Most of the fuses you have in the car start at 5 Amps and go up in value, like 10A, 20A, etc.

The problem is these values are way too high should the GPS have a catastrophic failure or the GPS power leads get pinched or shorted to ground. You'll burn up the GPS and its wiring before the auto fuse blows.

You need a low rated fuse (probably 1/4A) inline with the GPS. This will give you adequate protection. You can buy inline fuse cords at Radio Shack.

** NOTE **
Check to make sure that the DC output of the cigarette adapter is indeed +12VDC and not some lower voltage indicating that there is an internal regulator circuit. I took a look at the 660 owners manual and it says the GPS input voltage is +12VDC, so you should be ok. I also hear there is some electronics inside of the cigarette lighter plug. It may have to do with charging the internal GPS battery. You could always take apart the cigarette plug and remove the internal board and use it in your hard wiring to your vehicle.

Once you get it all working, you could duplicate what you built for another vehicle. You can buy the cigarette adapters online.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
