Do you have a computer? If so connect a usb cord to the GPS and the computer,if you have a digital camera the same usb cord will work,hope this helps.

    OK a USB cable comes with a digital camera or any device that you can connect to a computer,it does not come with a Garmin GPS, so you would need to purchase one at any store,Target,Walmart

    camera store etc.Why cant you use a wall charger to charge the unit if you dont have a computer,

    these also can be purchased at stores,sure hope you get this up and running,useless unless you use one of the options mentioned.

Garmin shows only device being reloaded/recharged


Hello,

When the device shows that it is hooked up to a larger device, it is in mass storage or data mode and usually will do this when connected to a computer to receive map and software updates.
This will also happen if the Nuvi is connected with an incompatible cable.
Using the correct vehicle power cable will remedy this.
The Nuvi 300 is an old GPS and should probably be replaced with a newer model.

How do I recharge the battery on my Garmin Nuvi 255WT? I would also like to know how to update my Garmin?


Hello,

Recharging the battery is done by connecting the nuvi to a vehicle power cable in the car through the vehicle power accessory outlet or cigarette lighter.
The unit can also be charged via a powered USB port off your computer via the USB power/data cable or an AC power adapter through the USB power/data cable.

How do I recharge my garmin 1450


There are 3 ways to charge a garmin nuvi satnav.
  1. You can connect it to the cigarette lighter socket of a car with the charger lead that came with it. This method takes about 4 hours to fully charge it.
  2. You can charge it with a mains charger which has to be bought seperately at shops that sell garmin satnavs. This also takes about 4 hours to charge.
  3. You can connect it to the USB port of your computer with a mini USB lead. Turn on the computer and the satnav. This method takes about 8 hours to charge fully.

Can I recharge a garmin nuvi 750 on a computer or must I recharge in car only with clip on


you can use the computer to charge it via the USB, they do make house adapters that plug into the wall, very cheap to buy, and leaving it plugged in when not in use greatly extends the battery life. Go to ebay to get the house charger

Today i turned on my garmin after a few months, it was working will for about 2 min, then it lost satellites, so I turned it off, then tried to turn it back on, but it never turned back on. the battery...


If the GPS's internal battery is allowed to discharge too far, it will not be possible to recharge with the card charger, until it is brought up to a certain level. Connect the nuvi to a computer with USB cable overnight. This will trickle charge the internal battery to a level that will allow the car charger / cradle to keep the GPS charged from that point on. Anytime the car charger fails to recharge the internal battery, the USB charge method will have to be performed first.

Garmin Nuvi 660 shutting off


It sounds like your battery is defective. They can be replaced. The Motorola phone cable is not wired exactly like the Garmin, and your Nuvi thinks it's connected to a PC. Radio Shack carries a charger for the Nuvi. I have one myself.

Let me know if you need additional help with your battery problem.

Is the battery in my Nuvi 350 rechargeable, and if so, how do I do it and how long does it take


Yes, the battery is rechargeable and can be charged (3) ways:

1. Car charger.
2. Wall charger.
3. USB cable (less advisable due to current limits of USB port).

A new Nuvi is shipped with all (3) charger/cables. Overnight charginging is ideal.

Using my car speakers with my Garmin Nuvi 350


No, unfortunately ther is no way to get the unit to use your car speakers. To do this, the unit would have to have an FM transmitter or be able to connect to one. It does not have this capability. Sorry.
