There are three ways to charge the internal battery in your automotive GPS
1 - Please note that temperature can play an effect on
the charging of a device. If the battery registers a temperature of 0°C and
below or 45°C and above (32°F and 113°F
- Use the provided vehicle
power cable that came with your GPS unit. The unit will charge while
powered on and using the device as well as when the GPS unit is powered
off and plugged into a running vehicle.
- Use an AC power
adaptor. Some units come with this power cable to plug the GPS unit
into a wall outlet allowing the GPS unit to take a charge. For units
that do not come with this cable, one can be purchased from Garmin's online store.
- For most units, the final way
of charging the battery is to plug the GPS into a powered on computer with
a USB cable2. This
method of charging will be a trickle charge and it may take longer than
the other two options, however it will still charge the battery. A
USB cable is provided with a few GPS models. For those that don't come
with this cable, one can either be ordered from the online
store or you can use a standard USB to mini-USB cable that fits the
unit and plugs into your computer.
