Hi
Check the fuse on the car charger. Try another working car charger, from friend to see if that works for you.

As per the Tom Tom Experts hte computer USB is meant to charge and the Car charger is only used to maintain the already existing charge. Hope this works

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.

Hi, I'd suggest using a wall charger as they're able to provide more power to charge then a computers USB port. Often with camera's the USB port doesn't supply enough power so the camera doesn't charge at all.

Unit will not power on.


its probably not the battery, your gps should run even without a battery if the power port/circuit is ok. unfortunately this is a common problem that the usb port gets damaged with this and many other model of magellans gps systems.

if you had it plugged in to the car charger, make sure the green light is on while charging, if its not, you might have a blown fuse in the charger or the fuse for the cigarette adapter in the car.

if the green light is on, try letting it on for a few hours, then try and turn it on. if and when it turns on, you can verify if its charging by going to the system settings then the power option. the battery bar should turn green and move from right to left if its charging. if the battery is slightly low but the bar is not moving left to right, then its not charging.


you can check the charging by using the usb cable provided with your unit and hook it up to your computer to verify if its charging. but i suspect it has a bad power port (usb connector)

i hate to be the barer of bad news, because rarely do i get a good rating for being the barer of bad news, but hopefully you just have a bad charger or a blown fuse in your adapter or car.

good luck

TomTom will not charge with car charger


Mine does the same, the light comes on on the charger, but not on the TomTom unit itself. There is clearly a loose connection in the cable somewhere as you can twist the flex and make it work, although this is not very reliable.

I just use a USB charger from an old phone instead.

Sounds like you both have a battery problem. I experienced a similar problem when trying to charge via the USB-cable connected to my computer.
Ended up buying an original charger (expensive) and the charging went smooth.
The car charger should in any case work fine, so probably your battery is not very healthy.

Try holding your finger on the battery symbol for about 10 sec. The unit will then switch to a technical page. There you can observe the battery and charging voltage. When I plug in my computer USB-cable, I read around 4,4V and that is not sufficient for charging my battery.
When connected to the original charger, this voltage rises to about 5V which gives a nice charge. When unplugging charger, the unit displays the battery capacity. If the charging voltage is OK, but battery capacity drops quickly after you unplug charger cable, the battery is probably bad. (Of course you have to charge is for some time) I think around 4V battery voltage give 100% capacity. 3,9V gives about 90% capacity.
This will not solve your problem, but can give you an idea about what is wrong.
Good luck.

I just hooked it up with a usb sync cable to my computer. It was installed and ready to use and the charging light came on. Seems like it is charging as the led went from red to yellow, and it does turn on now. However, it still does not work with the usb cable plugged into a wall charger. If this solution works for others having the same issue kindly post your results.
