Will not charge thru the USB or the car charger. Is the battery replaceable?

a magellan 4040 can not charge through the USB port and if it wont charge with a known good car or home charger, then read below.

This is very common problem with this and many model of magellans.

Try the car charger.

Make sure
green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

The following Magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 3000, 3050, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and the 6000 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your Magellan
gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...

You can
buy the port or get it repaired, HERE

if the links dont work or If you need further help, just let me know.

It wont keep a charge, the battery dies way to fast, it wont charge it with the cigarette lighter, or the house charger. once i unplug it it dies. I replaced the cigarette lighter and the home charger, and...

rechargeable batterries fade with age, neglect or misuse. Your battery is almost 2 years old from the time you purchased it, (probably 6 to 12 months older), so could indeed be dying. I just replaced a phone in my cell phone that was holding a charge for less than a day. The replacement from batterybuyer dot com fixed the problem and now my phone stays charged for 3 to 4 days.

Open the case of the GPS unit and the battery will have its specifications marked on it, usually a serial number and voltage, plus capacity in Milli-amp hours.

My Garmin Nuvi 255W, which comes on normally when I start the car, is not coming on. It is only about 5 months old. I keep it plugged into the lighter at all times. Do I need to worry about a battery in...

more than that! keeping it plugged into the car is damaging the SIIRF chip and battery when you start the motor. Also the unit needs to be charged properly before use in an AC charger or vIA USB The DC in the car will not fully charge the unit. In fact it also leaks power back to the battery of the car when you turn ignition off, so dropping the volatage and amps of the battery in the GPS.

Always charge/recharge it prior to use in a AC or USB environment

Battery life is average 2 years unless used like you say you have. Then 3-6 months might see it collapse!

try a full and proper recharge first

Please rate our help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Can i first charge my tomtom 330xl on the usb port of my computer

If it is plugged into the car, you use the DC charger. You can charge it using the usb port on your computer as well. In the accessories section of you will find an ac adaptor as well that can be purchased to charge it to an electrical outlet.

Am I able to charge Nuvi 205w with a standard cell outlet charger

For us, only the Nuvi car charger works - not plugging the Nuvi into a computer USB port, or using our Blackberry cell phone charger, both of which have the same type of plug.

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.

When I plug my Garmin Nuvi 660 in to recharge the battery, I can't use it while it's being charged. Is that normal. (Seems kinda dumb.)

Which charger are you using? The USB? AC charger? Car charger? It should work fine when using the AC or car charger. Using the USB places it in USB mode for programming.

The car charger worked fine in my car, but if it doesn't work for you, you can always charge it using the USB cable with your computer.
