We had the same problem and it was so very frustrating. We sent the Camera back for assesment and repair only to be told there was nothing wrong with it. The solution was so simple we felt like real dummies.
All you have to do is use Energizer Lithium Batteries, since we started using them we have not had a problem with Batteries going flat or that annoying Battery indicator flashing.

Sounds like you both have a battery problem. I experienced a similar problem when trying to charge via the USB-cable connected to my computer.
Ended up buying an original charger (expensive) and the charging went smooth.
The car charger should in any case work fine, so probably your battery is not very healthy.
Try holding your finger on the battery symbol for about 10 sec. The unit will then switch to a technical page. There you can observe the battery and charging voltage. When I plug in my computer USB-cable, I read around 4,4V and that is not sufficient for charging my battery.
When connected to the original charger, this voltage rises to about 5V which gives a nice charge. When unplugging charger, the unit displays the battery capacity. If the charging voltage is OK, but battery capacity drops quickly after you unplug charger cable, the battery is probably bad. (Of course you have to charge is for some time) I think around 4V battery voltage give 100% capacity. 3,9V gives about 90% capacity.
This will not solve your problem, but can give you an idea about what is wrong.

That means that you have to replace the battery.
The video on the link below shows how to replace the battery in a Garmin Nuvi:

A new battery can be purchased and installed inexpensively. I found a video.

It sounds like the unit is not being charged when it is plugged into the car. Does it come on when you plug it in, or do you have to press the power button? If you have to press the button, the charger is not sending power to the unit. Make sure it is connecting properly to the unit and that it is seated in the AC outlet correctly. If it is, check the fuse in the end to see if it has blown. If so, replace it. If that is not the problem, you may have a problem with the AC outlet in the car.
