I have checked around but can't find anything smaller than 12 volt booster pack, the type used for boosting car batteries. They have a cigarette lighter outlet. They are quite heavy to carry around after a while but they can come in handy depending on the circumstances.

Will my Garmin Nuvi 40 work with a 24 volt supply ?


If you are using a standard Garmin car charger, you can connect the charger to a DC power source that can provide between +10VDC to +30VDC. The charger produces +5VDC to power the Nuvi. This can be verified on the charger label.
You can NOT connect any voltage higher than +5VDC directly to the Nuvi.

I have a garmin gps nuvi 255w and I wanted to register it, but a massage keeps on poping up saying external power lost shuting in 29 seconds.What should I do?


Try to charge your nuvi properly and full, or for at least 2hours before registering it. If the source of power connected to your nuvi is not strong enough, the nuvi might go off during an operation. Secure that the battery is well charged, then the source supplying the power is good enough to supply your nuvi with power before starting an operation.
Hope this helps.

The problem is with the socket at the back of the satnav where you plug in the mini USB plug of the power cord. As the socket wears it feels as if the plug is in fully when it's not. Push the plug in further and the problem should be solved.

Is there a garmin that is better for having motorhomes


I think Garmin has a great solution for you and not only because it has a large screen but also for the fact that you can connect a reversing camera to it. It's the Garmin nuvi 5000. Keep in mind though that the unit does not have a internal battery, which means that it has to be connected to a 12 volt power source in order to operate. You cannot walk around with it and navigate on foot, but I think it would be perfect for you. Check it out on the Web.

Garmin nuvi 5000 wont turn on. I can plug up the usb up to the computer and the screen shows garmin logo with a gps connected to a computer like its charging. But when i press the power button weather it...


Your nuvi 5000 does NOT have a internal battery and that means that you cannot operate it unless it is connected to a 12 volt power source. Connecting it to your computer via USB allows you to install map updates, check for firmware updates, etc, but you will not be able to use it as a gps while it is connected to the computer. There is nothing wrong with your gps.
To use your gps in the home you need to purchase a 12 volt adapter, there are several types, plug the adapter into your wall outlet and connect your gps to it. If you can sit near a window it will help in picking up the satellite signal. Just keep in mind that you cannot connect the 12 volt power supply and use the usb cable at the same time. Enjoy your gps.

Can not charge only works plugged in


Your Garmin nuvi 5000 will never charge because it has NO internal battery. The only time it will operate is when it is plugged into a 12 volt power source. I have one and it really doesn't bother me at all. I bought a second cradle and a 12 volt adapter for use in the home.

Garmin Nuvi 300 does not switch on. The wrong charger was used


1. If using the power/data cable to power your device:
  1. Make sure you have power at the source it is connected to.
  2. Check the fuse in the power cable.
  3. Use a volt meter to test the end which plugs into your device (the manual for the device should show which pins are power and ground. Make sure you are getting at least 12 volts of power. This will ensure you are getting full power through the cable and determine if the cable is faulty.
2. If using a 12 volt cigarette lighter adapter:
  1. Check the fuse in the adapter.
  2. Make sure the cigarette lighter in the vehicle has power by connecting another device with a different 12 volt adapter if possible.
  3. Make sure the metal tip on your 12 volt adapter is still connected
3. If using batteries:
  1. Make sure none of the battery terminals are still connected to the device.
  2. Try new batteries.
  3. Make sure the batteries fit tightly inside the device. This will ensure the battery terminals are not loose and you have good contact.
4. If you are powering the device on the built in lithium ion battery:
  1. If you have a power cable for the device, plug it into a power source and see if the device will power on with direct power. If it powers on, check to see if the battery is fully charged.
  2. If it is not, let the battery fully charge and then try to power it on with just the battery.

Cant turn on garmin 5000


I had the same problem so i went to the local best buy store and I found out that the Garmin 5000 doesn't have a built in baterry pack therefore it must be plugged into an external power source, such as the car jack or wall ac in order to use it. I exchanged my 5000 for the Garmin 880 which i find much better. Hope this helps...
