Why does my garman not come on when plugged into car power source, and power light shows green light?


Your car adapter wiring might be faulty.. Green light shows it is receiving power from your cig socket but there isn't any power from the adapter to the plug to your gps..

When the charger is plugged into the unit, look at the main menu screen. If the charger is working correctly, the green battery icon in the upper right-hand corner eill go out. If the charger is plugged in and there is a light lit on the charger but you see the green battery icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen on the main menu, then the unit is on battery power and the battery is not getting power from the charger. Common problem with these units are loose rear USB ports. More information can be found here:

I had to buy a new in car charger for my navman s30,but when i plug it in to the sat nav & cigerette socket it keeps showing a computer,usb & navman picture.


  • Turn the Navman off by holding the power button in the upper left corner of the device until the screen goes blank.
  • Plug the unit into its charger using the USB port on the bottom of the unit. The battery indicator light next to the power switch should turn orange, indicating that the device is charging. Once the light has turned green the charge is complete. If the light does not turn on, verify that the car charger is plugged into a working outlet.

Have not used my Garmin since January 2011. Sitting on shelf. Plugged in to my car charger and would not turn on. Would this mean it needs charged?


After three months, I'm sure the internal battery needs to be charged. But even so, it should work when plugged into the car charger. The first thing you should do is check that the charger cord is connected properly at both ends. Mine has a green LED on the plug. If yours does, make sure that light goes on. Try jiggling the connectors at each end of the power cord. If it still doesn't work, the next thing to try is replacing the power cord. (Maybe you can borrow a power cord from a friend). If the power cord isn't the problem, I'm afraid the problem is in the Garmin itself. Good luck.

I have 765T Garmin. It won't charge from cigarette lighter. REturned first Garmin to company, got a "newly refurbished" unit, so it's different. Still won't charge from car. Cable lights up,...


if its an oem garmin charger and the green light is on and still wont charge, then the problem is most likely the power port on the back of your garmin...if its not the factory charger, get one for a garmin..that should solve your problem...if not, let me know


let me know if you need more help or info

Battery status light remains orange


chance are its not the battery!


make sure green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (upto ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

the following magellan 800,860,2000,2200t,2500,3000,3050,3100,3140,4000,4040,4050 and the 6000t are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...i sell these power ports and will repair them for anyone thats not able to do it themselves.

you can get it repaired here
or buy the port here

if you need further help, just let me know

My 6 month old Nuvi 760 turns on, but no signal


It is entirely possible you need a new battery. Use and abuse shortens the battery life. Starting the engine while GPS connected or overcharging on AC or PC.

If it fails to acquire on full charge or replaced battery then it has a damaged chip from the usage i stated above. Not warrantble either.

Not powering on


You can try a master reset: press and hold the lower right corner of the screen and power it on. You should get a message asking if you want to delete user data just say yes.
