If it won't turn on even when plugged into your car then it probably is the car adapter. Check the fuse. It is located in the tip of car adapter which can unscrew.

Just got a used Garmin 205W in the mail with no User's Guide. It says low battery. Can I charge it with a regular plug in device like I use for my cell phone, or do I have to use the cigarette lighter...


You can charge the garmin satnav with either the car charger when the car is running, an optional mains charger or you can charge it through the USB port of a computer. It takes around 8 hours to charge through a computer or 4 from a car or mains charger.

You can get the user manual from http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/2675_OwnersManual.pdf

Says I have a low battery. I think I am missing the battery and holder located on the side. What is the battery I am missing?


The battery is inside the satnav. If you get a message saying that your battery is low you should plug in the car charger for 4 hours, or a mains charger for 4 hours or connect it to your computer for 8 hours to charge it.

If it fails to charge by any of these methods the battery may be worn out and unable to take a charge. If this is the case you need to return it to garmin to have the battery replaced.

You need a genuine Garmin car charger to both charge and see directions at the same time. If it is a non - Garmin lead you can't charge and use at the same time. the Garmin at the same time. Otherwise the unit just goes into sleep/pc mode. It took a long time to get to the bottom of this, so I thought I'd pass the information on...

Since I updated my Nuvi, the unit will not charge


I have answered many questions about this unit but yours is the 1st i have seen with this problem, if the charger checks ok with a volt meter (go to radio shack and ask them to test it most will) and the unit works when hooked up in the car to a working power point then the battery is defective, they last about 2 years at best.

I had the same problem. Found out that the fuse had blown in the power cord. I bought a new fuse from radio shack and have not had the low battery since.

Garmin Nuvi 660 shutting off


It sounds like your battery is defective. They can be replaced. The Motorola phone cable is not wired exactly like the Garmin, and your Nuvi thinks it's connected to a PC. Radio Shack carries a charger for the Nuvi. I have one myself.

Let me know if you need additional help with your battery problem.

Sounds like you both have a battery problem. I experienced a similar problem when trying to charge via the USB-cable connected to my computer.
Ended up buying an original charger (expensive) and the charging went smooth.
The car charger should in any case work fine, so probably your battery is not very healthy.

Try holding your finger on the battery symbol for about 10 sec. The unit will then switch to a technical page. There you can observe the battery and charging voltage. When I plug in my computer USB-cable, I read around 4,4V and that is not sufficient for charging my battery.
When connected to the original charger, this voltage rises to about 5V which gives a nice charge. When unplugging charger, the unit displays the battery capacity. If the charging voltage is OK, but battery capacity drops quickly after you unplug charger cable, the battery is probably bad. (Of course you have to charge is for some time) I think around 4V battery voltage give 100% capacity. 3,9V gives about 90% capacity.
This will not solve your problem, but can give you an idea about what is wrong.
Good luck.

You can get a charger that fits in the tiny little charging port, on the lower right side next to the "cradle teeth". But of course you will STILL not be able to sync.
Radio Shack has a set of port adapters, the little yellow one fits. Be SURE to plug it in the correct way around. (Bring iQue to Radio Shack when you buy adapter.)
