It could poddibly be the fuse in your car charger socket that is not working. Try doing a reset of your garmin, the button is located on the back. power off the garmin then hold the reset while its on the charger. Another extreme method would be doing an entire hard reset which would erase all of your settings. those instructions can be found anywhere online

I plugged in my garmin nevi 1350 into my computer for updates, and it's not showing up on the screen (MAC). The update program can't find the device on the screen. What am I doing wrong? marilyn


Perhaps nothing.

Does the GPS turn on and go into usb mode when plugged into your MAC? If not, it is probably a driver issue if the GPS works normally in your vehicle. You might try the Communicator Plugin for MAC. https://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=3739

The screen your describe on your Garmin Nuvi is quite normal. It's the PC communication mode of the Nuvi. When disconnected from the PC it will automatically restart.

To update Nuvi software and maps - connect the Garmin to a PC / Mac using an USB cable. Then start your web browser (Internet Explorer / Firefox or similar) and go to MyGarmin.com.

To update the Garmin - MyGarmin.com will check if your webbrowser has been installed with the Garmin update plugin. If not it will say so and will lead you through the procedure to install the Garmin web browser plug-in.

After the web browser plugin is installed it will ask you for your Username and Password at MyGarmin.com. If not registered, then register yourself with the serial number of the Garmin Nuvi.

From here it's possible to update your Garmin Nuvi with new Nuvi software and maps using your username / password at MyGarmin.com

I had the same problem. When you have your nuvi plugged into your cigarette lighter it doesn't charge. Your battery is probaly near dead. I called Garmin and they told me to plug it into my computer via the usb cable. Turn the Garmin off and let it charge for several hours. That did the trick

How do I turn off our garmin nuvi?


Hi,

Reset button behind the Antenna, press this in for a few seconds.
Use the Web-updater at Garmin, to update it too,
Jack it to a PC and run the update,
If still playing up, Use the Firmware update at Garmin for it,
(( google Garmin 660 software updates ))
Should be good then
Regards
Richard.

Nuvi 200 screen is extremely dark


The screen brightness could be turned down or the display itself is defective. Even if it was turned down all the way it should be somewhat visible, so if the display is completely blank, I would suggest that the LCD display has become defective.
