Auto shut down screen does appear when ignition is turned off

Unit stays on continuosly when car is shut down, the auto off screen never appears asking to shut unit off/leave it on. If I take unit out of it's cradle the auto off screen comes on. It's plugged into the lighter circuit?

    Thanks, kinda figured that I was still getting the 12 VDC. I'll have to put a meter to the receptacle and figure it out, dam thing keeps draining battery if I forget to turn it off.

This is telling me that your cigarette lighter socket has +12VDC applied to it all the time EVEN when the ignition is turned OFF. This is not the fault of your Nuvi. On some cars, like Hondas, the cigarette lighter socket powers off when your ignition is turned off.

If you want it to turn off with the ignition, then you will have to power it from a +12VDC source that is controlled by the ignition.

NEW PURCHASE AND PLUGGED INTO AUTO TURNED ON AND GARMIN LOGO APPEARED AND THEN SCREEN WENT BLACK. DOES NOT WANT TO STAY ON. INTSTRUCTIONS SAY UNIT WILL PROMPT BUT NOTHING HAPPENS. IS THERE SOMETHING ELSE...


Yes!!! Please charge the unit overnight. You didn't say what model you have. If it's a 2xx series, plug in the charger and move the on/off switch momentarily to the left until you see the screen say charging. Set the unit down and the screen will go off. If you touch the screen again, it will come on. After charging is done, when you touch the screen it will say charging is complete. Remove the charger. If its' a 3xx or 6xx product, hold down the on/off power button until you get the charge screen.

Honeywell HZ-705.....HELP!!!!


Should have oil in it. I don't think you can refill it. If it has leaked out, it's probably no good. Anyway, here are the instructions.


Press the *power button* once to start the heater on high power, continuous run. If left at this setting, the unit will run continuously on high power (1500 watts, 12.5 amps) and will not shut off until the unit is manually turned off.
Press the *power button* again, to change to low power, continuous run, (900 watts, 7.5 amps) and will not shut off until the unit is manually turned off.

Set temperature:

Press the temp/timer button until the temperature icon blinks. Use the up and down arrows to set the desired temperature.
The temperature icon will stop blinking and the current room temperature will reappear after the desired temperature is set.

The heater will turn off and on to achieve the desired temperature.

Set timer: (auto off)

Press the timer/timer button until the timer icon blinks. The hour display will appear. The auto off icon will also appear.
Use the up and down arrow buttons to set the heater operation time between 1 and 10 hours. This function will activate once the timer icon stops blinking. The heater will automatically turn off whn the times runs out.

Set timer: (auto on)

Press the temp/timer button until the timer icon blinks. The hour display will appear. The auto on icon will also appear.
Use the up and down arrow buttons to set the heater start time between 1 and 10 hours. This function will activate once the timer icon stops blinking.
The heater will automatically turn on when time expires.

Hope this helps!

Display problem


the adjustment box for colour, brightness and contrast stays fixed on the screen. i tried pressing the exit button.... after a few times it disappears only to reappear within a few minutes. also the auto adjustment option, for which we are supposed to manually press the i button, keeps auto adjusting the screen whenever it feels like it. the box appears right in middle of the screen and is a real nuisance as it blocks out the main portion.
