No battery status in the screen of Garmin 255. I just bought a new Garmin 255, before charging, it can not on, meaning, the battrey is empty, that is fine. Pluging the car charger, the unit can turn...


The battery status only shows up when the satnav is disconnected from the charger. Your first charge should be a continuous charge until the battery is full. This can be done by connecting it to your computer for 8 hours approximately or 4 hours to your car cigarette lighter socket or 4 hours to an, optional extra, mains charger.

How long does it take to charge up we just bought a new one and it was plugged in the car for 2 hrs and only lasted about 2 hrs


Garmin satnavs come with a charge out of the box. In most instances you will not need to charge before using. Your device will charge while attached to your 12V vehicle power cable.
In some cases your device may have lost a charge during shelf life. In this case you can charge these units in three ways:
  1. Place unit on computer with USB cable for approximately 8-12 hours
  2. Place unit on Garmin specified AC adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours
  3. Place unit on 12V vehicle adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours
Your device should be fully charged after applying one of the steps from above.

I neglected to plug in the cord to my cigarette lighter and the charge ran down to 0.I am on a trip and did not bring the charging cord. i tried plugging into lighter in car but it stays on for a feww...


leave it switched off and plugged in.

This would give it chance to actually charge as using it from dead with it plugged in does not always allow some GPS to charge properly.

You neglected to say which brand so its hard to give a 100% answer.

Most GPS should have enough charge withing 4 hours but from dead some older units require anywhere up to 18 hours according to some of the manuals i have laying around

PMD-B200When i put my nav into the dock stationitgoesblank


I have a similar problem where my B200 just blanks right out and doesn't want to come back on until I pull it out of the head for about 1/2 hour! It also did not want to turn on outside of the head at all - I'm assuming dead battery. I phoned support here in Canada and they told me that it might be because the unit is not fully charged while in the head. He suggested that I pull the GPS out and try to charge it using the dedicated AC outlet for it. I'm trying this now! As for the firmware update for the B200, there ISN'T one as of yet. From what I've read, Alpine discontinued the Blackbird B200. Alpine support said that they are working on a newer firmware for the unit but I won't hold my breath if they discontinued the device!

Dead


Does the cigarette lighter work in the car when you press it in? Does it get hot? If not has the fuse blown for the cigarette lighter?

If that is supplying power you may have a fault in the cigarette lighter to Tom Tom lead. Carefully check the fuse (one of the six bumps) in the plug and make sure it is still intact (use a meter).

If the fuse is OK then the lead itself may be faulty and probably needs to be replaced.

Garmin ique 3600 won't turn on after battery goes dead


You have to charge the unit before it will start from a dead battery (usually about 10 minutes) before even trying to start the unit.

Screen goes dead


"goes dead in two minutes. recent thing. downloaded update. same in 5 mins."

Try charging the battery. Does it die when connected to the AC charger or computer?
Try reloading the update.
