Garmin nuvi 260 battery does not hold a charge


If a wall powered charger is used it could be bad or the connection from it to the unit damaged---happens if the charger is connected/disconnected a lot----same thing can happen if using the lighter plug adapter for charging.

Garmin gps doesn't work when charging with cigarette charger. Instead of the GPS to Navigate it rather shows like there's a data transfer.


Hello,

The proper vehicle power cables for the Garmin nuvi 260 are part numbers 010-10723-06 or 010-11478-03.
The use of improper cables will cause the nuvi to go into mass storage.
You may also want to contact Garmin Support for assistance.

The USB port on the NUVI 260 is loose and will not charge


You will not be able to refasten it yourself. This is a surface mount part and you need a very small tip soldering iron to fix it, plus you ned to know how to modify it so it wont break again. Please see this link:

How long does the garmin nuvi 260 hold a charge


First, get a new charge for your car. You're screwed without it.
A full charge should last for 2 hours if batteries an decent.
It does not have to be plugged in and you could turn on while on your trip.
Lisa, your 260 is a great unit. Get the new adaptor.
By the way you can find a extender for your current adaptor at Radio Shack that work around that funky ashtray.
Does this help? Let us know. Thanks.

Garmin nuvi 260w not operating while plugged in


Based on your description, you are doing it right. You said....
"when i connect it to the car charger it shows the computer sysmbol and starts charging. there is no other usb port on the device"
That is correct. It takes about 2-3 hours to fully charge a low battery.
There is only a mini USB port on a 260.
It's used for charging and downloading updates of software or maps.
