Will my Garmin Nuvi 40 work with a 24 volt supply ?

If you are using a standard Garmin car charger, you can connect the charger to a DC power source that can provide between +10VDC to +30VDC. The charger produces +5VDC to power the Nuvi. This can be verified on the charger label.
You can NOT connect any voltage higher than +5VDC directly to the Nuvi.

If your device is not having power, there are 3 factors to be checked. The battery, the charger and the device itself. Run a test on the three factors and you will be able to tell which has the fault and how to solve it.
Insert the battery in another device, then you try to charge it for some time, lets say about 2 hours, then you try to power the device on to see if it will power it on, if it powers it on, then it means your battery is alright. Put it back in the lowrance gps device and power it on.
Then you connect you charger to another device to see if it will charge. If it charges it, then it means the charger is alright but if it does not charge, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced with a new one, then you connect the new charger to your device to see if it will charge it and power it on, if it charges and powers it on, then that solves the problem, but if it does not, then you need to test the device itself.
Then you further go ahead to test the device by connecting it to a computer and its normal charger, then it means there is a problem with the connection port of the device is bad or there is an internal problem somewhere.
That should do the job for you.

My garmin will not power up. it was working fine when i shut car off then would not power up when i restarted car

Any device can come up with such problem. It might be working perfectly fine in a minute and stop working the next minute. The problem simply is power related. The sources of power to the device is mainly from the charger and the battery.
These are the components to be checked, first test the battery of the device by inserting it on another device and plugging it for about 2 hours before powering it on, if it powers on, then it means the battery is alright and if it does not turn on, then it means the battery is weak and cannot hold a charge or that the battery is dead and cannot work. The solution to that is for you to replace the battery with a new one.
Next, test the charger by trying it out on another gps device to see if it will work, if it works, then it means the charger is alright, but if it does not, then it means that the charger is burnt and it cannot charge or power on your device. And the solution to that is for you to replace the charger with a new one.
You have to also check the device to see if it is also still working by connecting it to a computer to see if it will work. Before you connect it to computer, ensure you have a well tested battery in it, then you power it off before connecting it to the computer, after connecting it to the computer, check if the computer will read it before powering it on, if it reads it, if it does not, then it means there is a problem with the connection port or something is wrong internally with the device.
Hope this information helped you.

My wife's Nuvi 350 will power on, start loading maps, then shut down (stays on for a total of 18 seconds). It's only 2 years old.

If its not connected to an external power source, then your battery is shot.

Should not do this when connected to an external power souce like the DC car charger or AC wall charger.

I have a nuvi garmin i cut the charger to connect perment

Are you sure the wires of your car have power to them? Did you use a wire for ground or did you ground it to the chassis. Try grounding it to the chassis. Some wires may only have power when the key is on or the engine is running.

Magellan RoadMate won't compute if connected to power

unplug the charger, then turn the 1200 on, once its fully booted, hold the power button for 15 seconds..the screen will go blank after a few seconds, but continue to hold it for 15 seconds.

now, with the charger plugged in and unit off, press and hold the power button for upto 7 seconds or till it starts.

if that fails, let me know and i can tell you something else to do.

It does no power on, can i charge it in tne phone charger

no, the magellan 2000 can not be charged with a phone charger (usb connection) you have to use either the car or house charger that was provided with the 2000 when it was bought or you can buy a replacement off sites like also sells them, but they cost double if not triple what you can get them for on

if your having power issues with your 2000 and you have a car charger for it and the charger light is on, then the problem is probably in the power port inside the gps.

This is very common problem with this and many model of magellans.

Try the car charger.

Make sure
green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

The following Magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 3000, 3050, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and the 6000 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your Magellan
gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...

You can get it repaired,
Or buy the port here

If you need further help, just let me know.

TomTom will not charge with car charger

Mine does the same, the light comes on on the charger, but not on the TomTom unit itself. There is clearly a loose connection in the cable somewhere as you can twist the flex and make it work, although this is not very reliable.

I just use a USB charger from an old phone instead.
