The battery may be fully discharged. Once the battery has fallen belowa certain level, it will not be possible to recharge via the caradapter. Instead, the GPS should be connected via USB cable to acomputer for 8 or more hours to charge the battery. Disregard anymissing driver messages, as the computer will provide the voltagerequired to charge (regardless of drivers present or not).

Oncecharged, the car charger should be able to keep the battery charged -unless allowed to become fully discharged again. Repeat USB charging asneeded.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 750. It went dead suddenly.


THERES A GOOD CHANCE THAT THE CABLE IS DAMAGED OR EVEN WORST THE CONNECTOR WITHIN THE UNIT IS DAMAGED OR BROKEN. TRY USING THE OTHER CABLE IE THE CAR TO UNIT CABLE OR THE USB TO UNIT CABLE IF EITHER ONE WORKS THE OTHER IS DEFECTIVE, IF NONE OF THEM WORK THERE GOES TROUBLE.

Has been working fine..now will not turn on.


It sounds like a dead battery?
When it is plugged into the car, you should see a charging symbol, or it will say charging if the screen is off.
Are you sure it is getting power from the car? Check the fuse for the lighter socket, also the power cord has a fuse in the end that goes into the cigarette lighter socket, if you twist the end of the adapter it should open and expose a fuse.
Check these fuses to be sure.

Hope this helps.

Had the same problem-try this- leave your nuvi off for about 4 hours. Push the power button to the right(lock position) and then to the left (power on position) and let go. I suspect temperature (getting overheated is the problem. This worked for me.

Garamin Nuvi 350...blanked out and won't turn back on.


Try the computer USB adapter. After it's been connected for about 20 seconds then try powering on the Nuvi. Even if your unit's battery is dead the USB connection should hold power on the unit so that the computer recognizes it as a Mass Storage Device (Windows). If that doesn't work then use the wall adapter and leave it plugged in for an hour or so. At that point if the unit fails to power on then push the reset button in the back under the antena and hold it in for 10 seconds while the cord is connected to the wall. This will clear any software related issues that would stop it from powering up - any other result indicates most likely a hardware failure. At least rule out your plugs.
