Power jacks are often designed to switch off the battery when inserted, to save battery life, on devices with non-rechargeables.

If your device switches off, when the adapter is inserted, then it sounds like the power supply is either unplugged from the wall / car, or is broken, or has a blown fuse.

Updates for garmin sat nav


To increase the accuracy of your Garmin Nuvi 205W, I recommend you use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device. Software improvements for acquiring satellite lock and location accuracy have been made.

I hope that helps.

Garmin 660 wont operate on power lead


Are you using the Garmin AC adapter or the Garmin car adapter? Using the wrong cable and the Garmin will think that you are trying to connect to a computer. Not all USB cable are alike.

When connected to your computer it thinks that you want to upload or donwload information.
