SOURCE: I just bought my Garmin Nuvi 200 and just stays black screen?

My Garmin 200 did the same on two occasions. On the bottom to the left of the serial number is a tiny reset button. Press that using a pencil point and all will be reset. And you don't lose any map data, so don't worry!

SOURCE: Charging Garmin Nuvi battery for first time

The Garmin Nuvi 855 uses a Lithium-ion battery. It is a very clean system and does not need priming as nickel-based batteries do. The 1st charge is no different to the 5th or the 50th charge.

In other words there is no memory effect with these batteries and it should be safe to charge it for as long as you like on the first charge. I would estimate 4 hours will give you a full charge if you wish to do this from the outset.

Garmin Nuvi 755t Stuck in power up cycle


You can do two things.

First, plug the GPS in overnight in a regular USB charger. If the battery charges up, then the problem is with your Garmin vehicle cable.

If it does not charge up, you can buy a battery replacement kit for it: https://www.amazon.com/Garmin-Nuvi-755-Replacement-Installation/dp/B003VFSR4M

My garmin nuvi 200w keeps going into mass storage mode when plugged in to charge.as soon as it is plugged in to charge the screen appears that shows the garmin plugged in the computer. and the map...


1) Disconnecting the nuvi from the charging cable.

2) Press and hold the battery meter icon for 8 seconds. This puts the nuvi into "system test" mode.

3) Plug in the power cable.

4) Click "Exit." The nuvi should now reboot, but remain in GPS mode!

I have Garmin Nuvi 265W. When I plug my car charge to charge up the battery and use the Navi at the same time, I only get the "GARMIN" screen connected the computer but can't use Navi function...


Try a hard reset,the Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.
  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
Perform the Hard Reset:

*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit
  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  3. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears.
  4. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences
Then make sure the unit is fully charged,then go to the Garmin site and register your product. Then download Garmin Updater and connect your unit with a usb cable directly to your computer and not thru a USB hub. Let the update go directly to the GPS and not a folder. It will take a few hours even with a fast internet connection. I have attached a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

Can not turn on! my garmin nuvi 200w I think it is locked,


if ther battery went totally flat place it on charge for an hour or so to revive it. Max battery life in storage is 4 days with a good battery.

Charging it even tho the charge light may not show should build up enough charge to eventually show the light and allow you to turn it on. It should remain on charge for 5hrs.

Other possibility is a collapsed cell in battery, replace the battery

Is m Garmin nuvi 200 GPS charging


Merritt, Your Garmin Nuvi does not have a charging indicator similar to say your Cell ph. Simply a battery charge indicator scale. Normal full charge time is approximately 3 to 4 hr. If you looking to ensure your unit is in fact charging Plug in & then remove the connection, Your unit will pop-up a screen to request if you wish to remain on battery power. I hope this helps you.

How do i charge my garmin 750


Plug the charger into the mini-usb jack. The unit should turn on and when you come to the main menu, you should see a lightning bolt over the battery bar graph. This indicates that it is charging. If you don't plan on using it and want to charge it over night, if your Nuvi has a push down power switch on the top, press and hold it briefly until it goes to a black screen and says charging. If your Nuvi has a slide switch, slide it to the left until you get the same charging screen. A few seconds later, the screen will go dark but if you touch the screen, it will light up again and say its charging and go dark again. After several hours, when you go to touch the screen it will say Charging Complete". Yiu will also notice then when you go to use it, you will see ALL of the green bars on the battery bar graph will be lit.

Full charge lasts just under 3 hours


The battery life is advertised as THREE to 7 hours. Try reducing the backlight time. You're within factory specifications.

Garmin nuvi won't turn on


folks, the garmins have an on-board battery that needs to be powered up (at least occasionally) via the usb port - like from your computer. just using the dc car power cord does nothing for this battery. i've had this exact same problem on both my 760 and 780 nuvi units. fixed it using the usb charge. seems to run down differently for all the various nuvi models. my regular charge will hold for 7 hours on my old 660, my 760 and 780 work about 5 hours. my 'power up' failed on the 660 after 10 months with no internal battery charge, but the 7xx models only took about 5-6 months to 'fail.' hope this helps. jack b :-) in midland, tx usa
