My Nuvi 660 has started to keep turning off by itself every 10-15 minutes despite being connected to a car battery charger. Will appreciate any help.

Nuvi 750 Car charger connection is intermittent.Either the Car charger or the Nuvi 750 connection is intermittent. The device will display a warning that it is using the battery - 27 seconds to turn o


It is very rare that it would be a problem with the Nuvi 750 GPS itself. This is because there are stationary gold pads on the bottom of the 750. No moving parts to wear out. We have seen problems with a bad plug on the charger that plugs into the cradle and the receptacle on the cradle can go bad as well. I would suspect more toward the cradle as we have seen the receptacles break away from the printed circuit board that is inside of the cradle. Best way to troubleshoot is to find a friend who has a duplicate charger and cradle and swap each piece, one at a time and see which resolves the problem... either the cradle is bad or the charger plug is bad. If you want us to test your unit, cradle and charger, let us know. Good luck! :) More info on charger issues here:

Garmin nuvi 660 battery will not charge from car charger


Make sure the fuse to your DC socket isn't blown. Check the fuse in the tip of the charger. When your Nuvi 660 is plugged into the cradle, you should see a yellow lightning bolt over the battery icon. If you don't see this, then your Nuvi isnt getting voltage from the car charger.

You can also have a bad cradle or charger plug that plugs into the cradle. More info can be found here:

I've been using after market chargers in car and on ac. They worked fine for a long time. Now, my Garmin NUVI 660 seems to turn off (goes into "charge mode" or something) when I plug my car charger into...


Yes, many aftermarket chargers are not wired the same as a Garmin charger and will cause your Nuvi to think it's connected to a PC. What happened to the original charger that plugged into the cradle (the part your Nuvi snaps into?)

Unit shuts down after about one minute.


When you leave a Nuvi on a charger for several hours and don't see full green bars, this is an indication that the battery is defective. Most Nuvi batteries last about 2 years. Most of the batteries have a date code of 2007. I would have the battery replaced as soon as possible as it can bloat and crack the case open. More info can be found here:

I keep blowing fuses in the car charger for my Garmin Nuvi 660


What happens when you replace the fuse, plug in the charger without plugging the charger into the 660? Does it blow then? If not, the 660 is damaged internally and causing the fuse to blow. If it still blows, then there is a problem in the charger.

660 nuvi charges fine with AC charger, but not with 12v car charg


The real question is this:

1. When you plug the Nuvi onto the cradle, do you see a yellow lightning bolt appear over the battery icon at the main menu?

Compare it with the AC charger. If you don't see the lightning bolt, then you either have (2) problems:

1. There is a problem with the car charger not feeding power to the Nuvi.
2. There is a problem with the rear cradle socket on the Nuvi.

I have fixed both problems before. More info can be found here:

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.

Garmin nuvi does turn on when connected to power in car


Hi

I had the same problem. My Nuvi 350 did not power up for a couple of days. I suspected moisture to be the culprit. So I took my wife's hair dryer and blew hot air(in the intermediate setting) into the SD card slot in the GPS for a couple of minutes. Take care not to overheat the GPS or Screen.
Pronto my GPS powered up without any issues.
Hope this helps

Do you have a garmin home charger.
To do a test , is that working when you connect your unit with the car charger.

Less than 0.9 % of the units has a battery problem. I don't think you have one.

When it's full charge , what is the maximum bars you get ?
