Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver
I have a 205W with the same problem. It works flawlessly on battery power, but as soon as I plug in the car charger, the screen reverts to the icon showing it hooked into a PC. Then it will go to the Garmin screen, come on for a few minutes, and then shut down, and repeat the whole process.
Has anyone else encountered this?
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.
