Yes. If you're in your car and you turn off the ignition and it wants to go to battery mode while it's plugged into a cigarette lighter, check one of your other lighter plugs. My car has a plug that is hot all the time and one that is only hot while the car is running.

Garmin Nuvi 260 Car GPS Receiver


When the charger is plugged into the unit, look at the main menu screen. If the charger is working correctly, the green battery icon in the upper right-hand corner eill go out. If the charger is plugged in and there is a light lit on the charger but you see the green battery icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen on the main menu, then the unit is on battery power and the battery is not getting power from the charger. Common problem with these units are loose rear USB ports. More information can be found here:

Garmin gps doesn't work when charging with cigarette charger. Instead of the GPS to Navigate it rather shows like there's a data transfer.


Hello,

The proper vehicle power cables for the Garmin nuvi 260 are part numbers 010-10723-06 or 010-11478-03.
The use of improper cables will cause the nuvi to go into mass storage.

Garmin nuvi 260 does not work when plugged in


I assume you mean when you are trying to plug in to your car?
Have you changed car plug lately?
You have to use a Garmin approved car adapter.

Nuvi 260 won't turn on at all.


Had the same problem with my Garmin Nuvi 260w. It just needed to be reset. Lift up the sticker strip on the bottom of the unit and press the reset tab. Worked like a charm for me. HTH!

Brand New...Can't get it to stay on?


Make sure you have it connected to a power source properly. Push and release the power switch. (it is spring loaded) Don't push it to the lock position for now.

Garmin Nuvi stopped working and won't restart


Got a Garmin Nuvi 260. Same problem. I read the booklet. There's a reset button on the bottom. Disconnect from power. Push the reset button. Connect back to power. Now it works. The reset button is tiny and looks more like just text on the bottom sticker than it does a button. But push it anyway.
