    No joy on this issue. I tried the solution and it didn't appear to work. I let the battery run out and then plugged it into the car's adapter and turned it on. Within about 5 seconds of being turned on, it went straight to the screen where it was acting like it was connected to a computer.

    Same problem. Also, the battery won't take a charge and the unit is pretty much dead, so that solution didn't work for me either.

    Plug in the car charger and C320 assumes itself connected to a PC!

    Kingul,

    I used 3 home usb chargers and 3 different Car USB chargers, non worked.

    THE MAN IN THE SHOP SAID IT WAS A FAULT WITH THE MINI USB CONNECTION - I CANNOT UNDERSTAND THAT BUT EITHER WAY I AM TRYING TO SEND IT BACK FOR REPAIR

    My home chargers have been working with Mio C310x, Magellan 4250 and Sanyo 4370. Only C320 will connect to a PC when connected with any of my home charger. The original car charger was tested with C320, same PC connection. I doubt your comments were true!

I hate when this happens but the main thing is pretty much let it reset it self by letting it run out of battery till it shuts off and plug it in i really dont understand why these units do it but it worked for mine

Try to replace the charger. This work 80 %. If this does not work for you...you must put it in service...sory

    in 6 months, I've had in service only 3 devices with this problem. One with a non original charger, one with cradle connector problem ( fixed by reconnecting flex between mainboard and cradle connector), and one with mainboard broken by mechanical shock( a capacitor missing) . So...if so many of you have this problem...i assumed that you didn't use original chargers.

  • kingul Apr 13, 2009

    But...you can go to a mio store and ask the sales men from there to let you try another original charger. i know...i am persistent ;), but you cannot compare c320 with other devices...because it have a different schematic . Best regards

My mio 320 is stuck on transfer mode when connected to charger it thinks its connected to computer


I've had a lot of issues w/ the operation of my MIO C320, including this problem ... but ONLY whenever I tried using any other mini-USB cords (like from my phone or Garmin GPS chargers), with my MIO C320. There's something unique about the mini-USB pin-out configuration MIO uses that allows you to either charge or update their units (using the transfer function), using MIO's supplied mini-USB cables. (I've labeled my MIO cord as "MIO GPS", on a piece of masking tape wrapped around the cord.) I'm trying to recall whether the MIO's cords worked properly w/ all of my other devices, and I can't think of any that did NOT function properly. So, maybe you could experiment and - if that's the case w/ your devices also - avoid further issues by keeping JUST the MIO's charger in your vehicle?. Sorry this is so late, but I hope it helps! Cheers, The Foxxx

Trouble using the car charger


It sounds like there is a connection being made on the data pins, this then puts the unit into usb mode, the unit is then trying to connect to the computer that the connection is telling it is there. You might have to buy another power cord, but is it possible that you grabbed the wrong cord? The cord you are using now is for something else? Might could happen, cords all look the same now.

When I plug this in to my car, only the Garmin logo comes up


Whenever these devices start acting up, like failing to load past the Garmin logo screen, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205. Also, use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device.

I hope that helps.

Garmin Nuvi acts like its plugged to a computer in the car


This is the problem with the Nuvi 2xx series... the charging port connector on the rear is weak and eventually the connections fail. It does not have a quick disconnect port like the Nuvi 3xx, 6xx or 7xx series.

The connector has to be either resoldered or replaced. The bad connections are whats causing the problem, making your Nuvi think its connected to a PC rather than a true charging power source.
