It's kind of tough to find those parts by themselves. Your best bet is to just order a new charger and make sure the end is on tight this time. The part that scres on is usually meta and knurled, so you could use a pair of plyers to tighten it.

I Cant turn it on.


The car charger input is +12VDC and +5VDC at the plug that plugs into the Nuvi. Make sure your car +12V outlet is working. Try another device in the outlet. Check that the fuse in the charger tip isn't blown. The tip unscrews. Be careful, the charger tip, fuse and spring can shoot out. Cup your hand over the end while you use the other hand to slowly unscrew the charger tip. You can have a bad charger plug or cradle. Also, try pressing the reset button, underneath of the flip up antenna assembly. SHARCNET USA Out of Warranty GPS Consumer Electronics Repair Center

Nuvi will not charge when plugged into car charger but will charge when plugged into house charger


  1. Check that the cigarette lighter socket is working. If not it may be a fuse blown in the fuse-board.
  2. In the charger plug, that goes into the cigarette lighter there is a fuse which may be blown. At the tip of the plug you'll see a ring. On most chargers it's silver but some are black. Unscrew the ring and the plug will come apart. Take care not to lose the small metal tip when you open it. Replace the fuse. If there's power going to the charger and this fuse is replaced your problem should be solved.

The car charger wont charge the gps.


If the USB charger does, then check the fuses in your vehicle - also, there is a fuse at the tip of the car charger. The black plastic unscrews at the tip to reveal the .5A slow blow fuse.

Megallan 3250 car chrager tip is missing


I went out and purchased an iGo charger. I was able to purchase the charger at a Radio Shack store, but in order to get the proper tip, I had to go to the manufacturer web site and order from there. I'm sure that you could order a new charger from Magellan, but it might be more expensive to do so. The iGo is capable of taking multiple tips for multiple devices. I hope that this helps.

Nuvi 260w no power.


Yes, you need to charge it. USE the charger that came with it for best results. Some off brand chargers will NOT work.
You plugged it into your car and nothing? Even if the batteries are bad it should still work. Is it the Garmin charger?
