The top of the mouse is openable just like any other battery operated equipment... the part below the buttons houses the battery... apply pressure to the end opposite to the buttons and open it...

Why does my nuvi 1490 keep turning off?


My first question is: Is this happening when connected to an external power source such as a car charger/adapter? or is this while on battery power? If on battery power, then the battery is not fully charged or is weak and can not hold a full charge. There is another possibility too and that is that the battery is not receiving voltage from the charger because the rear mini-USB port is loose (a common problem on the Nuvi 11xx, 12xx, 13xx, 14xx & 25xx models). One more issue can be the firmware version. Older firmware was unstable and caused the unit to reboot. If you are getting constant pop-up messages that the unit is about to shut down, then this is a good indication of a USB port issue (loose or broken). When this happens, the battery can not be charged and the unit will turn off. More information can be found here: SHARCNET USA Out of Warranty GPS Digital Camera Repair

I cant power up my Garmin Nuvi 1350


One possibility is a loose or broken mini-USB jack. This would prevent any external power source from turning on the unit and charging the battery. This is a common problem with this model. please see this link for more info:

My sky caddie sg5 wont charge


If you follow these instructions which I think you know how to, it will recharge. If not the rechargeable battery needs to be replaced

To charge the battery, simply follow the steps below:
  1. Gently pull back the rubber cover to gain access to the mini-USB port located at the bottom of the SkyCaddie. Insert the mini-USB connector of the supplied wall charger into the mini-USB slot.
  2. Plug the wall charger into the AC wall outlet. While charging, the charging indicator in the upper left-hand side of the SkyCaddie will show red. The charging indicator will switch to green when fully charged. You may also notice the unit's screen turn on and off periodically.
The battery will charge, even with the SkyCaddie turned off. A full battery charge may take 4 hours. Once fully charged, expect 36 holes of continuous play.


Warning!Always connect the cable to the SkyCaddie first before connecting to AC power or PC USB.

Will not stay on when not plugged into the car outlet?


first make sure that the device is indicating that the battery is being charged or that the battery is fully charged. this is indicated on the menu screen by the battery icon as being 4 bars of full green color.
if the unit will not charge in your vehicle, you might need to replace the fuse that is located at the tip of the vehicle adapter.
1. to change the fuse unscrew the black, round end piece on the vehicle power adapter and remove it. inspect the fuse to see if it is blown. If not end here.
2. if determined the fuse is blown remove the fuse (glass and silver cylinder), and replace it with a 1A fast blow fuse.
3.ensure that the silver tip is placed in the black end piece. screw on the black end piece
if the fuse isn't blown and the unit still wont charge you may have received a usb cable with your Garmin Nuvi. If you didnt recieve one any mini usb cable should do. On this model you can connect the Nuvi to a computer using a usb cable. And see if you can charge your unit through this method. *Note* that the computer must be on for the unit to be able to be charged.
If you can charge your Nuvi unit on the computer then you may have something wrong with your cars adapter. I doubt this is the problem however if the unit is able to be turned on.
If you cannot charge the unit via a car adapter (with working fuse) or a USB cable. The most likely problem is the battery is no longer accepting a charge. On the listed unit a Garmin Nuvi 265 the battery is not user replaceable. So you would have to contact Garmin to get the battery changed or see if there is a local battery store that is able to change a battery on this model unit.
If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to assist you. If this assisted you please rate the comment. thanks and have a great day.

Where do i plug in the 120 charger on my garmin nuvi 760


I forgot to mention I have the Auto charger, a picture is found here.

If you bought a generic AC charger that claims to work for the 760 which doesn't have the mini-b end, you bought the wrong one.!
That (mini USB) USB port is the only place to charge the battery on this model

Broken mini USB port on TomTom One


It can be done with difficulty. I change them on a regular basis though as i run a repair business.

If you want me to change it I can do it for a small fee.

Convert a USB power/data to power only


I have found a partial fix for my problem at http://pinouts.ru/GPS/garmin_nuvi_power_pinout.shtml

This explains why a mini-usb "sees" data/power or just power. It has a different resistor between X and ground - the 4 pin. 200K ohm for data/power and 17.3 or 22K ohm for just power.

OK - where does this resistor "live" in the cable and what do I have to break to get at it to change it OR is there someone out there making a USB to mini-usb power only?
