I called Garmin re this question. They said about 4 hrs in the car, about 6-8 on the computer. I left mine plugged to the USB port overnight and have a full charge. BTW Radioshack sells an AC adapter for about 30 bucks. If if also works for the latest iPod I think I will go with it. 4hrs.. says Garmin

Garmin nuvi 40 goes into usb mass storage mode when pluged to charge


I updated my Nuvi 40 with the latest software and it will not reboot into GPS mode with the usb cable connected. It used to work. I have figured out how to get it to charge with a standard USB cable:
1) Power it on.2) Press the battery icon for 8 seconds - it will enter TEST mode.3) Plug in your USB cable from the PC to the Nuvi - the screen will change to say charging.4) Press the power button 3 times rapidly - it will say Charging across the screen and it will go dim and then dark.5) To wake it up and use GPS mode while charging simply press the power button 3 times rapidly, again.
Works Great!

Charging my nuvi 250 with a USB cable from my apple


When the GPS is hooked up to charge the battery it will say charging,try turning it on when hooked up and see if it is in fact charging,otherwise have you thought of purchasing a wall charger,I got mine on Ebay,very reasonable and works great,saves the hassle of hooking up to my comuter.Hope this helps with the problem.

Garmin Nuvi 250 stuck in mass storage mode when car charger is plugged in. It seems to think that my car charger is the cpu and not a charging device only. Please help, this is extremely annoying


Make sure you have the rite charger. Garmin will only work with a garmin charger. You may have accidently picked up a blackberry charger or something. Hope this helps

Nuvi 250 will not turn on when charging.


There are two types of leads that you can buy.

The one supplied with the Garmin expects you to plug the GPS into the PC via the USB and if you use this to try and charge your Garmin in your car it will think it is connected to the PC and show the connection screen. it will charge the unit but you can't see the map.!!!

Make sure that you buy a lead specially for the Garmin for use in the car its the only type of SAT NAV that you will have this problem with.

Is m Garmin nuvi 200 GPS charging


Merritt, Your Garmin Nuvi does not have a charging indicator similar to say your Cell ph. Simply a battery charge indicator scale. Normal full charge time is approximately 3 to 4 hr. If you looking to ensure your unit is in fact charging Plug in & then remove the connection, Your unit will pop-up a screen to request if you wish to remain on battery power. I hope this helps you.
