Hello, You can charge the unit using either the USB cable or the car adapter. You must install the USB driver software on your computer before connecting the USB cable to the PC. The USB cable is also used to update the software in the unit when Garmin provides it. The program installed with the CD will help you manage this. However the unit generally comes ready to go out of the box. Just use the car adapter and plug it in to the car. Good Luck! Dr. Know

Check engine light flashing, knocking, low power

Hello Shena: The flashing check engine light means to get your attention as the engine is misfiring as well as having some sort of "fault" The only reason that light comes on at all is that your vehicle is exceeding federal tailpipe emissions by a factor of 1 and a half.
The knocking and shaking is most likely caused by the misfire.
Have it analyzed by a good shop and best case scenario is there is a malfunctioning spark plug, spark plug wire or ignition coil. Get it done right away, misfires can damage the catylitic convertor (thus the flashing instead of steady light)
It would help to know the VIN of the car so mechanics can drill in on the specific model of your vehicle.

I just turned on my car after being out of town for a few days and it made a loud knocking sound and the service engine light is on. It has never made this sound before. It's not the weather.

alot of times when you let a car sit for a while, the oil will slowly drain down into the oil pan. When you start the engine, the knocking you hear is all the metal parts flying around, waiting for the oil pump to start spraying the oil everywhere. If you start it back up, let it run for a minute and listen for the noise to quieten down, it should eventually go away. You can help prevent the dry start as you are having by using good synthetic oil, and sometimes adding in LUCAS oil treatment.

Hi, this is not the first time i've heard of this problem..I have repaired engines with rod knock, crank bearing knock and piston slap after these treatments. These products can clean so much carbon and varnish from the engine that it brings the real internal problems to the surface. Try using thicker oil

Try adjusting the steering neck bearings. They should have been tightened at the 600 mile check up, but most mechanics short cut and skip the adjustment. Take off the handle bars and the upper triple clamp and tighten the "steering stem nut"/"neck bearings" almost to binding, then back it off a tiny bit. You may want to run your tire pressure around 34-34 PSI to help get more even tire wear.
