Question about Tomtom ONE GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Left mine in a drawer for 2 months. Now it won't start. I charged it for an hour in my car (while driving) via the cigarette lighter, but it still didn't turn on. Now I'm using an AC adapter to charge it - still won't turn on. Glad I got the Radio Shack service plan.

I just bought a garim nuvi 1360 and i forgot to ask how to charge the unit . first to plug it in the car lighter, what about the usb, could i tapp it in my laptop thru usb. pls explain better oscar...


There are 3 ways to charge your satnav. You can charge it with the car cigarette lighter socket or an optional mains charger both of which take around 4 hours. You can charge it through the USB port of your computer which takes about 8 hours. If charging with the computer both the satnav and computer should be turned on.

If charging with the car be sure that there's power going to the cigarette lighter socket. Some cars need to be running for power to reach it.

I had the same problem. When you have your nuvi plugged into your cigarette lighter it doesn't charge. Your battery is probaly near dead. I called Garmin and they told me to plug it into my computer via the usb cable. Turn the Garmin off and let it charge for several hours. That did the trick

DOES NOT CHARGE AFTER HOURS OF CHARGING WILL NOT TAKE ANY INFORMATION.


Confirm that it is charging, check the fuse for the cigarette lighter socket in the car you are using, check the fuse in the power cord, the tip of the cigarette lighter adapter should twist off and expose a fuse.

Hope this is of some help.

Unit (tom tom 1xl) turning off


One hour is about the time the unit will run without a power source.

You need to check that the cigarette lighter is working. Check the car fuse.

Check the fuse (one of the six bumps) on the cigarette lighter plug has not blown.

Is the cigarette lighter / Tom Tom lead damaged in any way?

Does the cigarette lighter work in the car when you press it in? Does it get hot? If not has the fuse blown for the cigarette lighter?

If that is supplying power you may have a fault in the cigarette lighter to Tom Tom lead. Carefully check the fuse (one of the six bumps) in the plug and make sure it is still intact (use a meter).

If the fuse is OK then the lead itself may be faulty and probably needs to be replaced.

New Garmin 260 W won't do anything when plugged in.


Your PC may not be able to charge it. If it does it's only a trickle charge. May take a day or two
The Garmin cigarette lighter charger take 4 hours.

How to recharge the unit


you can charge it via the usb or cigarette lighter.  either method will work and i am not aware of any problems created by using the lighter.  that really should be the primary charge method as it is expected to be used in the car.  is it charging on your computer.  if it is, but not on the lighter you may want to ensure that the lighter is itself working correctly and then also check to make sure that the fuse in the car charger is intact.  just a few suggestions
