Question about Garmin StreetPilot 2610 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Power supply The 12 volt power supply connection to the GPS loses contact with the slightest movement. Usually when it is moved to see the screen better when it is needed most. I have rubber banded it and that helps but doesn't eliminate the problem totally. Is a new power supply cord the answer.

Three years ago I performed a temporary repair to the power cord on my motorcycle. Someone unfamiliar with the connection pulled the cord instead of sliding it. The hard plastic flange pulled away from the molded rubber plug. I glued the lower flange back to the plug with superglue. It's still working.

Even when my gps is turned off it loses battery power. How can I get it to stay charged?


You could hard wire the car power adapter for your gps to a Constant 12 volt wire and ground to prevent your gps from losing it's charge. Else you will need to plug in the car charger for your gps and charge the battery a bit before you can use it.

Garmin nuvi 5000 wont turn on. I can plug up the usb up to the computer and the screen shows garmin logo with a gps connected to a computer like its charging. But when i press the power button weather it...


Your nuvi 5000 does NOT have a internal battery and that means that you cannot operate it unless it is connected to a 12 volt power source. Connecting it to your computer via USB allows you to install map updates, check for firmware updates, etc, but you will not be able to use it as a gps while it is connected to the computer. There is nothing wrong with your gps.
To use your gps in the home you need to purchase a 12 volt adapter, there are several types, plug the adapter into your wall outlet and connect your gps to it. If you can sit near a window it will help in picking up the satellite signal. Just keep in mind that you cannot connect the 12 volt power supply and use the usb cable at the same time. Enjoy your gps.

Garmin gps 12 wont turn on.


Sorry to hear of the dead units. Are you using the correct power cable with a small hole in the centre of the plug? The GPS 12 is strictly limited to 7 volts only. The accessory cigarette lighter cable for this model has a circuit inside to drop the voltage from 12 to 7. Cannot be fixed. There would have been a plastic peg in the back of the GPS socket to prevent anything but the correct voltage Garmin cable being plugged in. Unfortunately these pegs are easily broken off. Yes, they are a good little unit even though well on in years. The next model up - the 12XL - can accept a wide voltage range and does not have the plastic peg.

All the best, Tony at KiwiGPS.

Tottom direct power supply


No, it will fry the unit!!!

You need the cigarette lighter adapter to bring the voltage down to 5V. More than 5V will fry the One.

The end of my 12 volt power supply cord was lost.


You might be able to use the parts from an old cell phone adaptor. Have you tried that?
If not don't mess with any off brand adaptor. Get another one from Garmin at their website Garmin .com

Garmin Nuvi 300 does not switch on. The wrong charger was used


1. If using the power/data cable to power your device:
  1. Make sure you have power at the source it is connected to.
  2. Check the fuse in the power cable.
  3. Use a volt meter to test the end which plugs into your device (the manual for the device should show which pins are power and ground. Make sure you are getting at least 12 volts of power. This will ensure you are getting full power through the cable and determine if the cable is faulty.
2. If using a 12 volt cigarette lighter adapter:
  1. Check the fuse in the adapter.
  2. Make sure the cigarette lighter in the vehicle has power by connecting another device with a different 12 volt adapter if possible.
  3. Make sure the metal tip on your 12 volt adapter is still connected
3. If using batteries:
  1. Make sure none of the battery terminals are still connected to the device.
  2. Try new batteries.
  3. Make sure the batteries fit tightly inside the device. This will ensure the battery terminals are not loose and you have good contact.
4. If you are powering the device on the built in lithium ion battery:
  1. If you have a power cable for the device, plug it into a power source and see if the device will power on with direct power. If it powers on, check to see if the battery is fully charged.
  2. If it is not, let the battery fully charge and then try to power it on with just the battery.

Garmin GPS 12 suddenly turns off


Stay clear of rechargeable NiCads as they supply to low voltage and you may experience cutouts ? Use good quality regular alkaline batteries. Check battery terminals in gps (both ends) for corrosion/rust and clean if necessary.

Restarting while in use


Mine just started doing the same thing. I took apart the speaker power cord, but don't see anything wrong with it. I thought I saw the unit turn off/on one time when I moved the cigarette plug back and forth, but as I said the wires are fine. I have the power cord apart right now and have 12 volts hooked up to the wires directly and the unit has been sitting here for 30 minutes without resetting.
