Question about Garmin nuvi 260W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I just bought the Garmin 260w GPS. This unit is cool except the supplied car charger doesn't work in my '07 Camry. Does anyone see the same problem? In the manual is does mention something like, replace the "fuse" of the vehicle charger with a "1A fast blow fuse". Did anyone tried that? Any more details would be appreciated.

My nuvi 260W displays the computer plug in sybole then turns of both while move and sitting still an d is connected to power supply. I have bought new connector for power supply.


Whenever you see the computer to GPS symbol pop up while using the DC car charger, this is an indication of a loose USB jack (bad connection) between the jack and the printed circuit board.

You should only see this symbol when connected to the PC using the USB cable. You should never see it when using the charger. Please see this link for more information and how to have it repaired:

When i charge my garmin nuvi 260W with a car chager, the screen would be stuck, and i'm not able to use it.?


garmin are very fussy about there chargers if its the original charger then there is a fault with it if its not the original then get one ( you can only use genuine garmin chargers for garmin gps units) they have a clever sensor in them that stops you from using any other type of charger

Garmin nuvi 260w is not charging with car charger


You have a short in the wire that runs to your unit. Other than holding the wire in the exact location until your charge is complete you would be better off replacing the charging cord. They should be available at your local shop for around $19-$29.00.

No power either from car charger or from computer


try plugging it into a computer via usb cable and see if that does anything. if not then your unit may be fried and have to be sent into garmin for repairs or returned where you bought it.

You can register your GPS on www.myGarmin.com if it's a brand new unit. If someone else have registred it first (i.e. bought on eBay or similar), it could be a bit of a hazzle however.

I game my parents a garmin 260w with just the car charger.


I would only us the Garmin charger. Why take a chance. They are fairly cheap. Plus you need the car charger since that's where you use it most of the time. The batteries don't last all that long.

Nuvi 260w no power.


Yes, you need to charge it. USE the charger that came with it for best results. Some off brand chargers will NOT work.
You plugged it into your car and nothing? Even if the batteries are bad it should still work. Is it the Garmin charger?

Garmin nuvi 260w not operating while plugged in


If you are trying to use your unit in the car via the USB port and not the supplied cable, it will not work. You must use the bracket that came with the unit or the specific charger that came with the unit. The pins in the Garmin USB charger only use two pins whereas a regular charge cable uses 4.
