    my problem is same as DAMOR113. It is most upsetting because we lost battery power and couldn't charge the unit and receive directions at same time.

I recommend that you push the reset button which is located under the delicate frame around your screen. using your finger nail, carefully lift up the frame and you will see the reset button. push it and replace the frame.

You should only see the computer icon when plugging the 350 into a USB port on the PC. If you see it when plugging in a car charger/adapter, then there may be a problem with the mini-USB port on the 350 or the charger is an after-market charger that is not electrically compatible with a Garmin charger. Please see this link for more info:

I plugged the Garmin nuvi 3790 into my computer and the garmin devise does not come on or light up


Make sure the unit has been charged while in your car with cigarette lighter adapter. If the unit is charged, try connecting the usb cable directly to a usb port on your computer and not thru a usb hub.Then see if it shows up in my compute. When it does show up then go to the Garmin web site and register your product then install Garmin update. I am attaching a link to the Garmin site. Thanks for using FixYa

When I bought my new Garmin Nuvi, I understood that it had traffic loaded on it. I do not know how to use it if it is on the machine already. How do I find that feature? Joyce


You must have the correct Traffic Receiver plug , its the car cigarrete lighter adapter it has 2 lights on the plug in one will be Green for power the other may be Red if Traffic is not subscribed yet, so you might have a green and red showing.

If you have already have Traffic once you navigate to where you want to go, and the Car Adapter plug has to be used, go to Menu...Tools...Traffic

You can also check when the Car adapter plug is used, Menu...Tools...Traffic it will say if you have the Lifetime Traffic subscription if not...the following will get you going

First you must subscribe to the FM Traffic .... Premium Traffis Subscription by Navteq-North American
Go to www.Garmin.com under the Extra tab you will see Services.... Traffic

Street pilot 330 will not turn on when plugged into car power supply. Poosible battery charge needed?


Does the car charger cord have a fuse in it at the point where it plugs
into the lighter port, a lot of car chargers have a fuse, I can't tell
if your end, the part that goes inside the lighter port has a cap that you unscrew to replace the fuse, and garmin does not show it.

If the car is running, and it does not work, there is something wrong with the car adapter, or the unit at the plug, the battery should not have anything to do with it.

If the battery starts the car the battery is fine.

Not turning on


My unit was totally dead. I just kept it plugged into my computer for about 12 hours. I downloaded the newest software from Garmin. When I unplugged it from my computer, the battery seemed to drain quick, but once I plugged it into the card adapter in the car... everything seems to be running great now.

GPS plug do not fit in car cigarette lighter


Buy a adapter for your cigarette lighter socket that has multiple sockets with one that will fit the Garmin adapter.
I've never heard of a problem you are having??
Are you using a Garmin plug?
If not get one.

My Garmin Nuvi (200 I think) freezes..


My recomendation is to use the original accesory for cigarete lighter. I'll give you an example: when I connect my Nuvi 200 to any other USB cable (computer or home charger) its behaviour is like you said - it "says" that is connected to a computer and remains in stand by. But when I connect it to cigarette lighter (but note - the original one) the nuvi 200 recognize it as a car power source and works. The battery symbol disappear from screen and it works perfectly. When I turn off the engine or simply unplug the device from cigarette lighter (not from nuvi !) it recognizez that and ask me if I want tu turn it off on remains on on own battery. If I make no option the nuvi will turn off automatically after some seconds. So it recognize perfectly the car adapter and its behaviour is adapted to a car.

Charging unit with AC adapter


I have a 100v A/C power / charger unit for my garmin C340 GPS that I use to charge my Garmin's battery every day. I can use thj adapter to run the GPS, or just turn it off and let it charge the GPS. But it connects dirctly to the Garmin GPS unit, not to the cradle like the Cigarrette lighter unit does. .

I can't charge my GPS while I am in the car


Verify that the car cigarette lighter outlet is working. Do you have something that you could plug into the lighter like a light?

With the car running plug the Garmin into the cigarette lighter outlet. Does it come on without pushing the ON button? If the answer is no then there is either a problem with the cable or the cigarette lighter outlet. It should come on by itself if the lighter is working. Also are you using Garmin cables and DC adapter?
