How are you charging it? With the computer? Some computers have a limited amount of current on the USB port. The best way to charge it is with the car adapter or wall charger. if that doesn't work, then you may need a new battery.

I have a new Garmin NUVI 57 LM. I have it plugged into my computer to charge. How long should it take to get charged?


Charging via a PC is not the quickest way to charge a GPS because many USB ports can not supply enough current, so the battery will take longer to charge. Using an AC adapter is a better way. Leaving the unit to charge over night should be fine. The way to tell if the GPS is fully charged is to look at the battery icon on the main screen of the GPS. It consists of 4 bars. 4 bars = fully charged. 3 bars = 75%, 2 bars = 50% and 1 bar = 25%.

How much time is it to charge th nuvi 215


Typically charging overnight is good enough. Look to see if the battery icon located in the upper right hand corner of the main screen is at a full (4) bars. The icon is divided into (4) bars. The Nuvi 215 is a pretty old unit. If the battery hasn't been changed within 2 years it needs to be. Old batteries can leak and bloat (swell up). They will also not be able to be fully charged and will lose power very quickly. For more information on battery replacement, please see this link:

I have had my garmin nuvi 200 for almost a year now and only recently it has been acting up. i have been going the same route for a few days so i have an idea on where i am going and where i need to turn....


your battery is low on power and needs to be fully charged. It may be that your battery needs changing.

DC does not fully charge it and also starting the engine while plugged in will eventually ruin the battery and affect the sirf chip. Charge it on AC or via the USB

Garmin Nuvi 200 not charging


I also have a Nuvi 200 that didn't charge. The problem is the charging port disconnected from the circuit board. You can disassemble the unit and reconnect the charging port but it takes a small torques wrench and a small screw driver. You will also need a soldering iron preferably with a fine tip and a very steady hand. Good luck.

Is m Garmin nuvi 200 GPS charging


Merritt, Your Garmin Nuvi does not have a charging indicator similar to say your Cell ph. Simply a battery charge indicator scale. Normal full charge time is approximately 3 to 4 hr. If you looking to ensure your unit is in fact charging Plug in & then remove the connection, Your unit will pop-up a screen to request if you wish to remain on battery power. I hope this helps you.

First time use / battery charge


The Nuvi units are short on battery life and therefore Garmin has given you a connector other then USB to power your unit while in a car. You need to carry that. It's just a design flaw. If you try to rely on the battery of your Garmin Nuvi, you have less than 2 hours even on a full charge. And carrying the USB adapter which plugs into the cigarette lighter socket won't allow your unit to run while charging. so you need to take the adapter charger bracket that comes with the unit if you need it for longer trips.
