Does it charge via an AC charger? As most GPS units do better on an initial AC charge prior to being hooked up to DC.
Your charge circuit is possibly faulty, or the internal battery has collapsed and needs changing

Hi I found that mine did the same too, but I managed to identify the cause to be the DC charger that did not consistently plug in properly to the unit. If I move the connection around a little, it starts to charge. Try it on your unit and it might be the same.

    why do you think they dont make it anymore? I got one as a christmas gift, sent it back to pioneer right after new years, got it back two months later. Make sure you're plugging the charger into the right jack on the unit, too. There are two that it will fit on, if you choose the wrong one, it could fry the circuits.

Hello,

GPS systems are standard features in many new vehicle . A GPS system communicates with satellites to provide directions through unfamiliar locations. However, older vehicles don't come with GPS, and many drivers purchase aftermarket systems for their vehicles. Installing a GPS system in your vehicle can increase its value and help make traveling a much more enjoyable experience.

Instructions And Materials Needed Below.

  • Plastic putty knife,Flat and Phillips screwdriver set,Wrench set,GPS system
  1. Slip the edge of a plastic putty knife under the edge of the radio face and lift the plastic housing off. Most aftermarket GPS systems incorporate a radio or CD player to replace the old stereo.
  2. Loosen the bolts on the left and right side of the stereo and pull it gently out of the dashboard. Unplug the connections at the back of the stereo and unscrew the mounting bracket on each side.
  3. Connect the mounting bracket from the stereo to the sides of the GPS system. If you've purchased the correct GPS unit for the make and model of your vehicle, the bracket will attach with just a screwdriver.
  4. Plug the wires into the back of the GPS system and slide the unit back into the dashboard. The ports on the back of the unit will be color-coded to correspond with the proper wire plugs, so there is no confusion when connecting the unit.
  5. Secure the GPS unit by inserting the bolts back into the bracket and tightening them with the wrench. Replace the plastic cover over the face of the unit and press it down until the plastic holders click into place. Turn the vehicle on and follow the instructions on the screen to program your new GPS system.

Good Luck.

We installed the car cradle to the windshield but receiver won't adhere to the disk. Please tell us what we did wrong. Thanks, Pat skillman


i think you mean the mount wont adhere to the disk..normally the disk is not used to mount the gps to the windshield, is more for the dash area or another spot where the suction cup wont adhere. the are rare occasions where the disk is needed for the windshield though, but its rare. try ataching it to the windshield without the disk. lift lever at suction cup, press the mount firmly against the windshield, then press the locking lever down to secure the mount. the picture below is the wount in the unlocked position.

This adhesive disk provides an alternative to mounting your Magellan GPS to the windshield of your vehicle. The disk adheres firmly to your dashboard or virtually any surface. Then attach the suction cup of your windshield mount to the disk.

Can anyone send me instructions as to have to


The disc should have double-sided adheasive tape affixed to it. Often times a well armoralled dash doesn't make the best surface for that mount to work.

I usually cup mine to the windshield next to the rear-view mirror, but if you would perfer it to be on your dash, I recall hearing about a product called the "GPS Buddy" that provides a mounting location via one of your cup holders.

Those disc's prove pretty worthless for most vehicles.

Hi,

Garmin 010-10646-00 - The dashboard disk allows the suction cup mount to be mounted onto the dashboard of multiple vehicles.

Read a review as well from one of the customer using the same ....

I use a Garmin GPS unit in my car. The Garmin dashboard disk was the perfect solution to mounting the unit to where I can see it easily while driving. I was pleased to see how easy it was to install and how well it holds the GPS mount in place. I have not yet tried to peel off the disk to see if it did any significant damage to the dashboard covering. I keep cars a long time so that isn't really a problem for me. I do suggest that you find a nice magnetic knicknack to set on the disk when you leave the car parked. Even though you probably take the GPS with you, the knicknack dould possible disguise the fact that you use a GPS and reduce the possibility of someone breaking into the car.

Thanks.

Sticking my nuvi 260W to windshield - after a few days often in sun [winter/spring Mass.] thesuction cup mount falls of to dashboard- risking damage to nuvi. advice? without having to use permanent...


Here is what I do. I clean the spot on the windshield very good with Windex or another good window cleaner. I also clean the suction cup surface while I am doing the windshield. Next I place the GPS next to the Rearview Mirror. and connect the suction cup. Then I take the power cord and use it to tie a knot around the suction cup mount and then I loop it around the Rearview mirrow twice leaving no slack between the GPS and the Mirror. Be sure to not block you view in the mirror. If the GPS come loose from the windshield it will just fall far enough for the power cable to catch it and will just be swiing there instead of falling to the dashboard or floor. This is kind of a Mickey Mouse way to do things but it works.

Dash board mount


you can buy a heavy duty double adhesive tape, or use a permanent adhesive, or mighty bond onto your dash board since the gps is still removable
