I too just got mine from Santa... it's designed to operate while plugged into the lighter. It also charges the Li ion battery. If the Garmin screen comes on while you are using it I would suspect an error or what ever. (you DID move the little switch on the top left corner to unlock didn't you?) Just call their number 800 800-1020 and ask them. They were most helpful and were there well after the hours posted in the instruction book.

USB or a mains adapter. If it isn't charging using USB or the car charger, then you need to send it for service.

I had to buy a new in car charger for my navman s30,but when i plug it in to the sat nav & cigerette socket it keeps showing a computer,usb & navman picture.


  • Turn the Navman off by holding the power button in the upper left corner of the device until the screen goes blank.
  • Plug the unit into its charger using the USB port on the bottom of the unit. The battery indicator light next to the power switch should turn orange, indicating that the device is charging. Once the light has turned green the charge is complete. If the light does not turn on, verify that the car charger is plugged into a working outlet.

My sat nav shows opposite direction map


Binatones run igo. I would recommend finding the latest software and trying an update - then see if the problem still occurs. There is also a setting in the map view for making the map change to the direction of travel - this may be causing an issue.
"austech" is a good place to start.

What should my garmin screen look like when charging from my usb port? All I have is an icon of the gps and computer tower


That is what you should have, it's just showing you what power source is charging your unit, but i am sure if you press the power button on the sat-nav you will get a different screen

Explain how to charge my tomtom.onexl to my computer


Just plug the usb lead into the sat-nav, and the other end into a USB port on your pc and it should start charging, around 4 hours is enough to fully charge it, but don't worry you cant over charge it as the software inside controls that kind of thing, OK.
