You need to purchase an AC wall charger. Make sure it's a Garmin. There are too many after-market units out there that are not wired correctly and will cause your Nuvi to think its connected to a PC.

My Garmin Nuvi 780 will not stay charged. also i am unable to charge it while I drive.


The Nuvi 780 is an older GPS. Most likely, the battery needs to be replaced due to age. Many lithium-Ion batteries are only good for 2 years. More information can be found here:

Please have the battery replaced by a professional. We have repaired many units from failed battery replacements by customers. Often other things get broken in the process, sometimes beyond repair.

hi danielktx, its doing that because it thinks the charger is the USB cable and connected to the computer...either you have the wrong charger (is it factory or after market) or the charger it self is faulty.

Hello,

I checked your unit under Garmins recall section and your unit has not been recalled for battery issues. If you enoy your units MP3 feature and FM transmitter I would recommend sending it in for warranty. Otherwise it may be cheaper to purchase a new unit.

Hope this helps!

I have used Garmin Nuvi 780 for the last one year. But recently the message of "requiring pin #" pops up. I don't have a pin #. What shall I do?


If you have a Garmin Lock on your nuvi, zumo or StreetPilot c500 series and you have forgotten your 4 digit PIN number you can unlock the device by returning to your Security Location. The Security Location is the location that you set when you first enabled the Garmin Lock on your device. Returning to the Security Location will unlock your device.

If you have forgotten your PIN and Security Location please contact Product Support for assistance. Please note we will require a copy of the receipt and there will be a charge to unlock the device as this issue is not covered by the warranty.

To contact Product Support in your area go to http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/site/us/support/supportcontact

I had the same problem. When you have your nuvi plugged into your cigarette lighter it doesn't charge. Your battery is probaly near dead. I called Garmin and they told me to plug it into my computer via the usb cable. Turn the Garmin off and let it charge for several hours. That did the trick

Garmin nuvi 780-when recharging the battery should the user know when it is complete and how long should it take?


Hello skatecat,

The Garmin Nuvi 780 GPS receiver should take about four hours to fully charge. You can review the charge status by checking the battery icon in the top corner of the GPS's menu page.

Best Regards,
Ken

Garmin nuvi won't turn on


folks, the garmins have an on-board battery that needs to be powered up (at least occasionally) via the usb port - like from your computer. just using the dc car power cord does nothing for this battery. i've had this exact same problem on both my 760 and 780 nuvi units. fixed it using the usb charge. seems to run down differently for all the various nuvi models. my regular charge will hold for 7 hours on my old 660, my 760 and 780 work about 5 hours. my 'power up' failed on the 660 after 10 months with no internal battery charge, but the 7xx models only took about 5-6 months to 'fail.' hope this helps. jack b :-) in midland, tx usa
