    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!

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

    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!

    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 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

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5, fairly new less than one year. If I take it off the charger, it just turns itself on and off repeatedly and will not stay on. The only way I can use the phone is if it is on the...

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

My power cord started acting up on my laptop. now it wont power on at all, please help. do i need a new power cord?

It might be the cable totally cut (by the acting) but there might be your laptop's power adapter burn out by the acting. I suggest you to try from the easy ones (and the cheaper ones also), the cable.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

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.

My mains charger exploded and now 205 does not charge also no comms. Unit worked normally till battery went flat. When plugged into PC usb, Unit gets warm in area around mem card but does not charge.Any...

This is a new set of symptoms to me, but whenever these devices start acting up, 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.

Will not connect to my computer

Whenever these devices start acting up, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205.

This should allow your computer to recognize it again so that your can use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device.

I hope that helps.

Bad ignition?

if the truck was sitting for a while without driving, there is some tubes and stuff in the carb and they might have dried out and cracked, try either rebuilding it or buying a new or used carb for it
