Re: MioC320 acts like connected to computer when using...
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

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!

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.
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.
