    My 660 works for a limited time and then shuts down even when it is supposed to be charging in its holder in my car which is connected to the cigarette lighter. I charge it inside with the electrical cord but again it only holds a small charge now. what can I do?

If it does not turn on when you plug it into the computer, yes, it sounds like you may have a dead battery. Your best bet would be to contact Garmin as to how to get it replaced.

How to turn on my garmin 265w


your battery in your garmin does not have enough power to stay on. You have to charge through your car outlet or usb port on computer. Only other option is to replace battery if it doesnt charge from car outlet since you said wont connect to computer.

When the garmin is pluged into the lighter it will not charge but says to connect to computer. while pluged to computer it will charge


It sounds like your Garmin Nuvi is stuck in "computer" mode. Try resetting it. Here's how:
Without plugging it in to anything, turn it on. Open the GPS antenna and look behind it for the "Reset" button. Press it firmly. It should restart. Then try it in your car and see if that solves it.

If that doesn't work, try reinstalling the software. To do that, plug it into your computer with the USB cable. Then go to http://www.garmin.com
On the web site, first register your product if you haven't done that yet. Then look for "Support" and follow their instructions for updating your software.

A third possibility
is that your car adapter is bad. Try replacing it. (Try this after the first two ideas because you'll have to spend some money, and this might not solve it either.)

Good luck.

Have a phone charger 12 volt that fits and charges the nuvi 200 but with it plugged in it wont show anything but a computer and nuvi on screen. unplug and it works but only for a while til needs a new...


thats because the phone charger is wired different to the gps charger , u need a genuine charger, if when pluged into pc it takes longer to charge, best to have gps turned off while charging from pc..... if it still does not work/ hold charge battery in unit gone , caused by being in active for over 3 months

Garmin 200 won't turn on, flashes "Garmin" screen when plugged in


I connected the unit to the car charger instead of the USB charger and then held down the reset for 10-15 seconds, after which the system would show the computer connection on the charger and then boot up when not on the charger.

No power to garmin c330


Does the unit turns on while pluged into the computer? If the answer is yes, then you will need to replace the battery. The battery is not taking a charge.

You have to take the front cover off and hit the reset button. It should start after that.
