Sounds like the GPS is trying to draw more current than the charger is able to supply.

Try charging with the GPS off for a couple hours.

Will the garmin nuv GPS 750 Work witout a battery? Using the car power adapter only.


Yes.... You can actually take the battery out of the unit and run the unit on the DC car charger, however once you remove the charger, the unit will die immediately.

Will my Garmin Nuvi 40 work with a 24 volt supply ?


If you are using a standard Garmin car charger, you can connect the charger to a DC power source that can provide between +10VDC to +30VDC. The charger produces +5VDC to power the Nuvi. This can be verified on the charger label.
You can NOT connect any voltage higher than +5VDC directly to the Nuvi.

Hello,

Your units powered cradle has probably died out, this is very common with the 7xx series, see if you have a friend or someone that has the 7xx cradle you could try. But it is a very common issue, if you do need a replacement one can be obtained from here http://www.gpscity.ca/garmin-nuvi-700-series-cradle-replacement.html

Hope this helps!

garmin navs are famous for there chargers burning out. first check the fuse at the end of the 12v car charger by unscrewing the tip of.if its blown replace it. if its not blown then the charger has burned out there are after market chargers but only garmin chargers will work!! as garmin use a sensor to detect the correct type of charger is connected so be sure to buy a genuine garmin 12v charger

Nuvi 350 will not run on DC charger


Make sure your DC & AC charger is a OEM charger.

There is a good chance that there is a bad connection on the mini-USB port.

What happens when you plug the unit into the cradle and NOT use the mini-USB jack?

After my Garmin accepts power from my car but it does not get past the "loading maps" stage. All I get is the Garmin logo? Please help!


You are using the incorrect power lead there are two available on to connect to your PC for updated this one can't be used the in the car even with a USB to 12V adapter.

You will need to buy the correct car version that is just 12V DC straigh intto the Garmin this one is just used for recharging in your car.

As far a I know Garmin is the only type of SatNav that has this Pequliarity with the leads.

My garmin 750 gps will not turn on when plugged into power source


A dead battery will cause the unit not to turn on, but it should turn on if connected to an external power source like an AC wall charger or DC car charger.
