    I have a C340, not a 350. Does that make a difference? I will try your suggestion about plugging it into another cigarette lighter. If the plug is defective, can I find a new one? Thanks.

    The battery was completely run down. I attached the unit to a trickle charge from my computer overnight and it works perfectly now. i can't explain why it wouldn't accept a charge from the car battery.

First off how long have you owned the unit? If the unit is under warranty have it serviced that way if not. I would recommend having the unit serviced. If you need further assistance in getting the contact info for company or independent service center please let me know. Thank you,
Lee

I think you should check the fuse for that particular plug-in. You could have blown the fuse.

    Did you solve the problem? Was it the fuse?

Hi,

Would you be able to try a different charger. Are you using the same port on the Nuvi to connect the car adapter and the ac charger, or two different ones? If not, then the jack could be broken (solder joint, pin?). Try this, start your engine and then plug in the nuvi car adapter. The nuvi should turn on by itself. If the nuvi doesn't turn on either the adapter is defective or the cigarette lighter is no supplying power. Try the same test on another car if it works then I would say that the cigarette lighter power supply on the first car is defective, but if it doesn't then I would say that the nuvi adapter is defective. BTW there is a fuse inside the nuvi power adapter which might have blown.

Do you have one external GPS antena, i know that you have integrated antena in Nuvi but there is also options for one external so that may solve your problem.Also try to set up a routing speed for gps in your setings for your model routing speed is 14.97

Thank You

Odometer stays on after key has been turned off


Did u do any additions to your electrical ie gps or anything that had an internal battery? I have seen some ppl add things and tap into existing wires. Basically when you shut off your ignition key, your gps stays on and back feeds power to your bike until the battery in gps dies. Either change where you hooked up or add a diode.

Battery won't charge, screen wont stay on


Check the fuse in the power cord, if it is good then it might be the battery in the gps unit has gone bad. If it has then you will most likely never get the unit to stay on until you change the battery out. Bad battery no gps, no idea why just the way they are designed. Hope this helps

You're doing everything correct. When connected to computer GPS stays on front page. You'll need a program called TomTom Home on your computer to manage your GPS device.

Tomtom930 wont stay charged..cahnged the battery


it sounds like your power adapter isn't supplying enough power to the unit. You should be able to try switching out the adapter with another and see if that helps. If the doesn't help, then there may be a problem with the recharging circuit on your GPS. AT which point you should contact TomTom.
