19A259741 is the serial number. The model number should be to the left of that on the decal label. It's sounds like you have a Nuvi 2xx series.

The mini-USB jack is loose. Either is has come loose from the board or the connections within the jack are loose from everyday wear and tear (use).

If the jack is loose from the board and it needs to be resoldered or replaced if the jack is worn out.

My Nuvi Garmin 2595 lmt will only charge when attached to computer not car charger


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.

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 Nuvi 750 car cradle/charger does not charge the unit. USB charger works, so not the battery. Replaced the cigarette lighter jack and still does not work. Problem must be in the dash mount cradle...


Hi tbrick

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.

My Garmin Nuvi 270 has a charging problem. When I plug the car charger it automatically goes to computer charging mode and does not allow me to navigate and charge at the same time. I always charge the GPS...


This is because the socket in the back of the satnav is worn and prevents the mini USB plug being pushed in fully. Push it in further and it will be ok.

My garmin ran out of charge and when it was plugged in to the car charger it says loading maps then stays on the garmin page and goes no further...


Disconnect the nuvi from the car charger and connect it to your computer's USB port with the supplied cable (or any USB cable you have that fits it), and leave connected overnight (8 + hours).

You should be able to get the GPS to start up as expected after charging via USB port. if this happens again, simply repeat.

Good luck!

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.
