I had the same exact problem about three years ago when mine was new. I sent it back to Garmin and it took some convincing on my part to get them to replace the mount and cable for the car. The first time I sent it back they only wanted the unit back, not the mount. Same problem when i tried the replacement unit. I called service again and told them that I was sure it was in the cable from the cig. lighter socket and that I was going to send the whole system back. They said ok and when I received it back from Garmin the second time I had anew mount and it has been fine since. By woodtick

Low battery


You need to plug it into to the cigarette lighter or your pc. I take mine in the house and connect it to the pc to charge, but it will charge with the cigarett lighter too.

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.

Just got a used Garmin 205W in the mail with no User's Guide. It says low battery. Can I charge it with a regular plug in device like I use for my cell phone, or do I have to use the cigarette lighter...


You can charge the garmin satnav with either the car charger when the car is running, an optional mains charger or you can charge it through the USB port of a computer. It takes around 8 hours to charge through a computer or 4 from a car or mains charger.

You can get the user manual from http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/2675_OwnersManual.pdf

My bracket for my suction mount broke so I cant use a cigerette lighter charger is there another way to charge my GPS


If you were using a standard Nuvi 3xx cradle, pull the charger cord from the back of the cradle and plug it into the side of the Nuvi, into the mini-USB port. You can charge it that way.

When you charge it does not work


I have the same unit, and I even bought a new battery for it. After the resudal charge on the new battery wore off, it would not charge.
I now use it exclusively plugged into the cigarette lighter. When I need to update the maps, or the software, I use the USB cable.

I am still trying to get the tech manuals on it.

Hope that helps.

Charging the battery in Nuvi 760


1) Check the cigarette lighter is working by plugging in the lighter unit and see if it gets hot. If it doesn't then it is possible the fuse has blown.

2) You can plug the unit into a PC using the USB cable and if there is a fault you will get a message on the screen about 'USB over-current' but it shouldn't damage the computer.

If it runs/charges using the PC and (1) is OK then you may have a problem with the cigarette lighter - cradle cable or a problem with the cradle itself.

Charging


"unit turns on and off with the ignition switch, sometimes."

There is something wrong with your power cord or the connection to the cigarette lighter. Your unit should turn on and off with the ignition switch. If the unit is on and doesn't turn off with the ignition switch then your unit is running on battery. If your unit doesn't turn on with the ignition switch then the unit is not getting power from the cigarette lighter.
