I gone through your comments and question you mentione.you said you charge it by three ways,but the actual question by me is that you check out that is it getting charged.if its not getting charged.that means the battery is faulty.also if its getting charged very quicly then its a drained battery so the battery is not able to get charge.if the garmin unit was working before few days and suddenly stopped working then its definately the battery issue.the new battery is available at local electronics shop or at garmin stores. this will help as many users face this same problem and get it solved. Please do rate the solution. Thank you for using fixya.keep updated. thanks

Don't have a manual. Charging in electrical outlet at home and don;t know how long to charge for. Plug in shows a red and green lite, both on and I have been charging for over 4 hours. Comments


Most garmin nuvi satnavs take 4 hours to charge with a mains charger or a car charger. It takes 8 hours with a computer. There's a batter indicator on the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP. It will probably only appear when the charger is disconnected if it's the same as other garmin nuvis.

You can get the manual in Adobe Reader format from http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/nuvi680_OwnersManual.pdf

I dont know how to charge my GARMIN nuvi 1200 with the usb cable


There are 3 ways to charge your garmin nuvi 1200 as follows;
  1. Connect your satnav to a computer with the mini USB cable. Plug the narrow end into the satnav, where the power cable goes, and the other end into the USB port of your computer. Both computer and satnav must be turned on. It will take about 8 hours to charge like this.
  2. Connect your satnav to your car charger and plug the charger into the cigarette lighter socket of your car. It will take about 4 hours to charge.
  3. You can get an optional mains charger which also takes 4 hours to charge the satnav.

Brand new Garmin Nuvi 1490 T out of the box. How do I charge it? The only devices in box were a car charger (my commute is 5 minutes daily) and a USB connector? Should I just plug the USB into my computer?...


Garmin satnavs come with a charge out of the box.
In some cases your device may have lost a charge during shelf life. In this case you can charge these units in three ways:
  1. Place unit on computer with USB cable for approximately 8-12 hours
  2. Place unit on Garmin specified AC adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours
  3. Place unit on 12V vehicle adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours.
Some cars continue to supply power to the cigarette lighter socket when turned off and others don't. If yours doesn't you can charge it from your computer. There's no indicator to show that it's charging or when it's charged. However when you disconnect the satnav from the computer and turn it on there's a battery state indicator which shows if it's fully charged or not.

I have just purchased a sendai universal home charger, when I plug it is my Garmin 200, and the other end into the electrical socket I get a picture on the screen, looks like a computer with a plug running...


The nuvi thinks you've connected it to the USB port of your home computer. It's charging, so pay no attention to the screen.

If you HAD connected it to the USB port, you would also see the nuvi as a storage device attached to your computer. That's how you can download pictures that you can display on your nuvi. It's also the mechanism used when you update your maps and/or software.

The unit should still operate and turn on even with a dead battery when connected to an external power source such as the DC car charger, AC wall charger or USB cable (connected to a PC).

Please try the reset procedure listed here:

New Nuvi 760 that won't work


Using the PC to charge a Nuvi is not the correct way to charge. Use either the AC wall charger or DC car charger. Many PC USB ports can not supply enough current to charge a Nuvi.
