You might be able to use the parts from an old cell phone adaptor. Have you tried that?
If not don't mess with any off brand adaptor. Get another one from Garmin at their website Garmin .com

Cannot recharge using car recharger - no red light showing on charger plug in. Do not seem to have been supplied with a mains adaptor. Help Thanks Paul


Check the fuse in the car charger by unscrewing the tip - the red light should be on whenever it is supplied with power. Otherwise check your vehicle fuse to the 12 volt outlet (or try another device in the outlet).

How do you replace the fuse in the 12 volt adapter? Harley


Unscrew the nut on the end of the plug. The tip, fuse and spring should all just slide out. Replace in the opposite order.

Power supply


Three years ago I performed a temporary repair to the power cord on my motorcycle. Someone unfamiliar with the connection pulled the cord instead of sliding it. The hard plastic flange pulled away from the molded rubber plug. I glued the lower flange back to the plug with superglue. It's still working.

Garmin Nuvi 300 does not switch on. The wrong charger was used


1. If using the power/data cable to power your device:
  1. Make sure you have power at the source it is connected to.
  2. Check the fuse in the power cable.
  3. Use a volt meter to test the end which plugs into your device (the manual for the device should show which pins are power and ground. Make sure you are getting at least 12 volts of power. This will ensure you are getting full power through the cable and determine if the cable is faulty.
2. If using a 12 volt cigarette lighter adapter:
  1. Check the fuse in the adapter.
  2. Make sure the cigarette lighter in the vehicle has power by connecting another device with a different 12 volt adapter if possible.
  3. Make sure the metal tip on your 12 volt adapter is still connected
3. If using batteries:
  1. Make sure none of the battery terminals are still connected to the device.
  2. Try new batteries.
  3. Make sure the batteries fit tightly inside the device. This will ensure the battery terminals are not loose and you have good contact.
4. If you are powering the device on the built in lithium ion battery:
  1. If you have a power cable for the device, plug it into a power source and see if the device will power on with direct power. If it powers on, check to see if the battery is fully charged.
  2. If it is not, let the battery fully charge and then try to power it on with just the battery.

Question: Why won't my unit charge while plugged into my vehicle?
From the Garmin site: --> Answer: If your unit will not charge in your vehicle, you may need to replace the fuse located in the tip of the vehicle power adapter.
  1. Unscrew and remove the silver or black, round end piece. fileservlet?date=1&kb={6b85cfa0-194d-11dc-44cd-000000000000}&id={6e53bea0-6874-11dd-436f-000000000000}&ext=jpg
  2. Remove the fuse (glass and sliver cylinder) and replace with a new fuse.
  3. Ensure that the silver tip is placed in the end piece. Screw on the end piece.

Missing small adapter part


Hi marshaw40,

I'd recommend you attempt to contact Garmin support to see if they can supply you with this part. Their phone number is 1-800-800-1020 (U.S.). If they are not able to supply the part by itself then you may have to purchase a new power cord for the unit.

Best Regards,
Ken

I have a Garmin Nuvi 760. The end cap which screws in and holds the fuse in for the traffic receiver power cord is broken. Anyone knows where I can get a replacement part without buying another power...


This is a known problem with the 760 traffic receiver power cords. Call Garmin Customer Service (you may stay on hold for 20 minutes or so). When someone answers, explain the problem and they will most likely send you a replacement screw cap and fuse assembly for free.

Power connector


That spring is very important. If you remove the metal tip at the end of the charger, there is a spring on top of a fuse. The spring keeps the metal in contact with your vehicle's charger. Without that, it will not charge. Your only options are to purchase a new cord from Garmin, or charge the unit thorough the computer.
