    Can you charge the Garmin with the pc? Mine has the slide switch. When I get a picture it just shows a connection between the 750 and the pc. It says nothing about charging.
    I love the unit. It is so cool. I bought it for the wifey for Mother's Day so all she has to do is press home so she won't get lost. She doesn't like gadgets.
    She likes Country music so i got her a Sirius with several Country stations and she never used it.
    Fine it's next to my bed and the first unit is in the Vette.
    Her loss my gain. The 750 will also go in the Vette and the new Motor Home when I, not we go on trips.
    I got a little side tracked, sorry. I think the love is gone no matter how hard I try. Like they say you'll never figure the ladies out.
    If anyone gave me a $200 gadget for Fathers Day I'd be jumping up and down if i could.
    Should I buy the stand alone charger or will the PC and car hookup do?

Plug the charger into the mini-usb jack. The unit should turn on and when you come to the main menu, you should see a lightning bolt over the battery bar graph. This indicates that it is charging. If you don't plan on using it and want to charge it over night, if your Nuvi has a push down power switch on the top, press and hold it briefly until it goes to a black screen and says charging. If your Nuvi has a slide switch, slide it to the left until you get the same charging screen. A few seconds later, the screen will go dark but if you touch the screen, it will light up again and say its charging and go dark again. After several hours, when you go to touch the screen it will say Charging Complete". Yiu will also notice then when you go to use it, you will see ALL of the green bars on the battery bar graph will be lit.

The limited directions tell me to charge my Garmin 1450 for at least 4 hours. How is that done without a charger? Will it charge with the computer cable? It seems that your site will not allow me to...


Hello,

The nuvi will accept a charge when connected to a computer if the computer connection is done through a powered USB port.
Garmin part number 010-10723-00 which is an AC power adapter is also available for charging the unit.

My Garmin starts then turns off. I have kept it pluged in my car but it will not charge.


Assuming the fuse of the car charger and cigarette lighter jack are ok - it can be charged with a AC mains battery charger?

My garmin nuvi 750 won't turn on when it is unplugged.. It is charged. It will turn on if I have it connected in the car.


Most likely a defective battery. How do you know it is charged? If the battery is bad, you can have it on the charger for 5 years and it won't charge a dead battery.

My Garmin 765t won't power on. Anything I can do


Unfortunately, there is not a lot of easy user troubleshooting for Garmin units. I will note that the AC adapter that plugs in the USB port will give the unit more power than a USB connection to a computer or the 12vDC car adapter. If you've tried connecting it to the AC adapter and it still won't come on, it is possible the internal battery has gone bad and is consuming more power than the supply can produce to both charge and power up the unit. You can try leaving it plugged into the AC adapter for an hour or so and then trying to power it up with the AC adapter plugged in.

Let me know what you've done so far to troubleshoot and I'll research some more for you.

No battery status Garmin 760


Went to Best Buy and they didn't know how to get the bar up either but said that the unit should be charged in 3 to 4 hours. So, when i unplugged the unit from the wall...the battery status showed up. I guess it doesn't show when the unit is plugged into the AC charger. Now, all is well.

Charging unit with AC adapter


I have a 100v A/C power / charger unit for my garmin C340 GPS that I use to charge my Garmin's battery every day. I can use thj adapter to run the GPS, or just turn it off and let it charge the GPS. But it connects dirctly to the Garmin GPS unit, not to the cradle like the Cigarrette lighter unit does. .
