Check the wattage output on the charger. It may not be the correct charger that you have for the device. If this problem persists, carry your device to a cell phone store preferably in a mall, then find the one that fits your device and purchase the correct charging cable.
if you dont have the original charger, the 750 take a special car charger because of the traffic feature...it has a flat end about 3/4" to 1" long that fits in the cradle, but you can use a garmin usb charger, you just wont be able to use the traffic feature.
if thats a little confusing ( i tend to do that) i try and explain it another way.
if you think you need or want one of those chargers, just post back to me.
Try resetting the unit and also charge it using only the wall charger overnight.
Here's how to reset -it just puts everything back to factory settings -1- Turn unit on WHILE HOLDING your thumb in the lower right corner as shown in picture.2-Select YESPLEASE Take the time to vote me up this is my only reward for trying to help. Thanks PIC 2
I solved the problem by charging internal battery using the 120V. charger that came with the unit. I was not aware, that the cord in car was not charging my Nuvi and that it was running OK. until the battery was low and quit. I have to check this cord. Peter W.
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.
