Question about Garmin NUVI40LM 4.3" GPS US Mapping Text to Speech, Lifetime Map Updat
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

SOURCE: Not Charging ?
I have the same problem and have read on other web blogs that the battery is dead. You need to either send it back to garmin for a battery replacement or you need to order a 3.7volt lithium battery online and replace it yourself. If you replace it yourself you may need to solder the wires.

SOURCE: how to recharge the unit
you can charge it via the usb or cigarette lighter. either method will work and i am not aware of any problems created by using the lighter. that really should be the primary charge method as it is expected to be used in the car. is it charging on your computer. if it is, but not on the lighter you may want to ensure that the lighter is itself working correctly and then also check to make sure that the fuse in the car charger is intact. just a few suggestions

SOURCE: Charging unit with AC adapter
I have a 100v A/C power / charger unit for my garmin C340 GPS that I use to charge my Garmin's battery every day. I can use thj adapter to run the GPS, or just turn it off and let it charge the GPS. But it connects dirctly to the Garmin GPS unit, not to the cradle like the Cigarrette lighter unit does. .

Just use your USB cable that came with it to connect it to your computer. It will charge just fine. You can also use a cell phone charger that has a USB connector. A lot of cell phones use this type of charger now and the charge will work fine with the GPS>

I'm not sure there, but the USB to Mini-usb cord will recharge unit in about 20 minutes
My camera usb cord fit my Nuvi 760 and charges it well,
