If the Nuvi won't charge when connected to charge but charges on USB, then the charger port is faulty.
If the Nuvin does not charge at all , then the battery must be replaced.

1) Disconnecting the nuvi from the charging cable.
2) Press and hold the battery meter icon for 8 seconds. This puts the nuvi into "system test" mode.
3) Plug in the power cable.
4) Click "Exit." The nuvi should now reboot, but remain in GPS mode!
