Gps in sync mode when using charger

I have a cigarette type charger for my garmin nuvi 205w but when I try to charge, I get a PC picture on the bottom of my gps screen and it doesnt go away until I unplug it. What does this mean. I thought I was buying a universal charger.

My Garmin Nuvi 250 w gets stuck on the screen showing a picture connecting a computer to Garmin. I have it in my car and resetting hasn't worked. any suggestions


Hello,

The nuvi is being put into mass storage mode (the mode used to transfer data back and forth to a computer). This is usually caused by using the wrong vehicle power cable.
The correct cable is Garmin part number 010-10723-06.

Just got a used Garmin 205W in the mail with no User's Guide. It says low battery. Can I charge it with a regular plug in device like I use for my cell phone, or do I have to use the cigarette lighter...


You can charge the garmin satnav with either the car charger when the car is running, an optional mains charger or you can charge it through the USB port of a computer. It takes around 8 hours to charge through a computer or 4 from a car or mains charger.

You can get the user manual from http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/2675_OwnersManual.pdf

How I can recharge the battery?


You can charge the battery by connecting the satnav to your computer with the mini USB lead for 8 hours with both turned on. You can also charge it by leaving the car charger connected to it and plugged into the cigarette lighter socket of your car for 4 hours. There must be power going to the cigarette lighter socket. On some cars power is always available at the socket but on others it is only available when the car engine is on.

I do not have access to a car to charge this. I bought a USB cable. How long do I have to charge it and how long will the charge last?


It takes about 3 hours to charge and once it is fully charged, it lworks for about 4 hours depending on how often you use it. There is a charger that has the cigarette lighters port plug in at one end then the charging prong on the other end, That should do the job once you get it.
Hope this information helped.

Garmin 205W doesn't work while charging in car


I have a 205w and have been very frustrated with this same issue, but I just so happened to find the following fix on another site today and it works great.
Follow these steps:
Turn on the unit on battery, press the battery icon and hold for about ten seconds, and the unit will switch to the diagnostic mode. Now plug in the USB cable and it will give you a loud bleep. Exit the diagnostic mode and it will operate normally while charging. This was handy to enter favorites while it was charging.

Am I able to charge Nuvi 205w with a standard cell outlet charger


For us, only the Nuvi car charger works - not plugging the Nuvi into a computer USB port, or using our Blackberry cell phone charger, both of which have the same type of plug.

Don't work with the cigarette lighter connector


Check if you are able to charge other devices via the cigarette lighter such as a cellphone or try to use the lighter if the light does not get as hot as normal then that means that there is not enough power. If that looks ok then try another cable charger for your Nuvi
