Question about GPS

I have a garmin nuvi and the cable that you put into your cigarette lighter will not work. I changed the fuse and it still will not keep the unit charged. I can charge it on my computer with a usb cable. It is still under warranty and I don't know what to do. Thanks

Do you see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph? This indicates that its charging. If it's under warranty, please contact Garmin on their website. www.garmin.com and call them. No need to worry about this if its under warranty. Send them your charger too.

No light on vehicle power cable


If this is a cigarette lighter plug, the fuse may be blown. Unscrew the top where it plugs into the cigarette lighter and check the fuse. But, more than likely the fuse in your car for the cigarette lighter is blown. Check the car fuse first.

My Garmin Nuvi 250 w gets stuck on the screen showing a picture connecting a computer to Garmin. I have it in my car and resetting hasn't worked. any suggestions


Hello,

The nuvi is being put into mass storage mode (the mode used to transfer data back and forth to a computer). This is usually caused by using the wrong vehicle power cable.
The correct cable is Garmin part number 010-10723-06.

Garmin says low battery and now will not work in the car. Does this Garmin have a battery inside the unit that I have to replace?


There is a battery in the satnav but it's not user replaceable. It can only be replaced by returning it to Garmin. Before sending it away to replace the battery you could check the following;

  • Have you the satnav connected to the charger?
  • If it's connected to the charger is the cigarette lighter socket working. You can check by plugging in another device to see if it works
  • If the cigarette lighter socket is working and the battery of the satnav is not charging it's possible that the fuse in the plug, that goes into the cigarette lighter socket, is blown.
To change the fuse;
Unscrew the ring that's at the end of the plug and the plug comes apart. Be careful not to lose the silver coloured tip. When the plug comes apart you can take out the fuse and get a replacement at any car accessory shop or a shop that sells garmin satnavs.

If you have to return your satnav to garmin you can find their contact details at http://www.garmin.com/garmin/cms/home/support/supportcontact

I just took my Garmin 1200 out of the box and plugged it into the cigarette lighter in my car and it did not work...I have a blank screen...my car is 12 years old!


No power at all?
Check your lighter socket to see if it's getting power (plug lighter in and see if it gets hot). Check the power plug on the provided cable. It contacts a fuse that may either be missing or blown. And last, check the connection of the cable as it plugs in the rear of the Nuvi.

There's a fuse in the plug that goes into the cigarette lighter socket. To get at it unscrew the ring at the end beside the silver tip. When you take the ring off, being careful not to lose the silver tip, the plug comes apart. Take out the fuse and take it to any car electrical suppliers shop and they will give you a replacement for it.

I brought a new Garmin nuvi 1490T recently from Staple. The only problem is the GPS would not be charged when I use in my car. (the cigarrete lighter is in good condition). I tried to use another new cable...


The cigarette lighter adapter has a fuse in it, Carefully unscrew the Silver tip of plug, Carefully its spring loaded... and check the fuse..

Did you buy your unit with a credit card? If so you could possibly get a receipt,

Did you Register your unit with Garmin? If so they would have some kind of record when you brought it.

My garmin nuvi 650 na keeps depleting its battery even though I just fully charge it on the computer. It also does not charge when I plug it in the cigarette lighter in the car. The screen turns dark...


well if you have the factory car charger. There is a fuse inside of it. This is indicated in the manual. But it could also be the cigarette lighter fuse in the car is blown. I would make sure the cigarette outlet has power. If the cigarette lighter has power and you have the factory power cable that has a fuse try this. f the unit will not charge in your vehicle, you might need to replace the fuse that is located at the tip of the vehicle adapter.
1. to change the fuse unscrew the black, round end piece on the vehicle power adapter and remove it. inspect the fuse to see if it is blown. If not end here.
2. if determined the fuse is blown remove the fuse (glass and silver cylinder), and replace it with a 1A fast blow fuse.
3.ensure that the silver tip is placed in the black end piece. screw on the black end piece
let me know how this works by following up with a comment and i can instruct you on where to go from here. Thanks.

Garmin 205 will not turn on or charge.


Have you tried to plug the unit into another car lighter socket? The battery may be dead in the unit and the charge cable could have a blown fuse or the cigarette light socket may not be working. Try plugging something else into the car and see if it works. If it does then try to plug the gps cord and gps into another car to see if it works. If not you may have a blown fuse in the plug. Unscrew the tip of the plug and change the fuse. Good luck.
