Question about Garmin nuvi 260W GPS Receiver
I have the Garmin Nuvi 260W. It can only be used when it is not charging...there are 2 problems with this. 1.If it is not already charged by the time I need it, I cannot use it. 2. If I am driving for a long distance and the battery runs out, I have to turn it off to recharge it and hope that I didn't have to exit or turn before I can turn it on again and use it. Unless I constantly have it charging so I dont' have to predict when I need it, I can't use the device. Even if I have it charged, however, if I have a long trip this won't solve the problem.
Same thing happened with me. But got the workaround......as you are connected the other end to the car battery charger, remove it after starting the vehicle and observe that GPS would act like it is starting. As soon as gps shows "loading maps" insert the power end that you removed from the car charger socket and gpw would continue with the car power.
I hope this help.

I believe you need the power adaptor instead of the charger.
