Many auto accessory power outlets are only active when the ignition key is on or in the accessory position. It won't keep the GPS powered in the off position.

Low battery


You need to plug it into to the cigarette lighter or your pc. I take mine in the house and connect it to the pc to charge, but it will charge with the cigarett lighter too.

When using wire in car, Garmin won't turn on, it starts, shows a low battery sign and shuts down. Was working fine on recent trip. It seems no power is reaching GPS. Nuvi 765T


Most likely the fuse in the charger plug has blown. The plug that goes into the cigarette lighter socket has a ring near the end. On most chargers it's silver but some of them are black. If you unscrew this ring the plug comes apart. Be careful not to lose any parts. You'll see the fuse in there. Replace it and it should be ok.
The other possibility is that the cigarette lighter socket is not working. You can check that easily enough by trying something else in it.

My Magellan Roadmate doesn't work anymore when I plug it into my cigarette lighter. It says the battery is low and it is shutting down. The unit did not come with a battery charger so I am confused about...


there could be a few reasons why this is happening....

there should be a light on the car charger that comes on when you plug it in, if it isnt on when not plugged in to the gps, but while plugged in to the lighter...either the lighter fuse is blown, or the charger is defective.

if the light is on, on the charger and it still wont stay powered on, it probably has a bad usb port (very common on this model) but it could also mean the charger (if not factory) is not compaible with the unit.

another way you can try and charge it (if you determine the chargers at fault) is to hook it up to your computer via the usb cord that should of been supplied with your unit.

HERE is your manual..it will show you the differant charging options..there is also updates on that page if you need them

let me know if you need more help.

Battery won't charge, when plugged in it turns off right after starting up. Battery shows low, but won't charge up with plugged into car unit.


There are a couple of possible causes here. First of all check the plug on the charger that goes into the cigarette lighter socket. Sometimes the end of the plug falls off so it won't charge. Also, make sure the socket you are plugging into is live. You can check this by plugging something elst, like a cell phone into it. Finally, sometimes the battery in the GPS merely wears out and has to be replaced. If these suggestions do not solve your problem then you should consider sending your gps into garmin to be fixed. Go to Garmin.com for instructions on how to do that.

It is not turning on, even though it is fully charged


Plug it into the cigarette lighter in the car, or through a usb on a computer to see if it works. If it does that measn a bad battery.

Unit (tom tom 1xl) turning off


One hour is about the time the unit will run without a power source.

You need to check that the cigarette lighter is working. Check the car fuse.

Check the fuse (one of the six bumps) on the cigarette lighter plug has not blown.

Is the cigarette lighter / Tom Tom lead damaged in any way?

GARMIN KEEPS SHUTTING OFF


Check the fuse for the cigarette lighter socket. Chech that power is getting to the socket. Try plugging something else into the lighter socket to see if it delivers power.
