Try resetting the unit and also charge it using only the wall charger overnight. Here's how to reset -it just puts everything back to factory settings - 1- Turn unit on WHILE HOLDING your thumb in the lower right corner as shown in picture. 2-Select YES PLEASE Take the time to vote me up this is my only reward for trying to help. Thanks

Blew fuse in auto cig. lighter, battery ran down in 255w. trus to power up and load but just double beeps every few seconds? thanks Ron


plug something else into the lighter to make sure its getting power, if it is then let it charge for awhile with the car running. if it still doesn't work try doing a reset. There is a reset button under the sticker at the bottom of the unit. it is located directly under the check mark on the sticker. hope this works. :)

Overloaded my inverter -now only works when hooked to car battery


It sounds like the fuse that protects you cigarette lighter is blown.

After you have replaced the fuse, check the voltage again. 0.015vdc would not have powered anything that in manufactured to operate on 12vdc.

When powering anything over about 250W, I would suggest connecting directly to the battery to avoid overloading the lighter circuit.

Screen wont turn on after 3-4days


when starting the vehicle, the unit gets a surge. disconnect before starting the car. If it has a cig lighter power adapter, it was not meant to stay plugged in 24-7

My Garmin Nuvi (200 I think) freezes..


My recomendation is to use the original accesory for cigarete lighter. I'll give you an example: when I connect my Nuvi 200 to any other USB cable (computer or home charger) its behaviour is like you said - it "says" that is connected to a computer and remains in stand by. But when I connect it to cigarette lighter (but note - the original one) the nuvi 200 recognize it as a car power source and works. The battery symbol disappear from screen and it works perfectly. When I turn off the engine or simply unplug the device from cigarette lighter (not from nuvi !) it recognizez that and ask me if I want tu turn it off on remains on on own battery. If I make no option the nuvi will turn off automatically after some seconds. So it recognize perfectly the car adapter and its behaviour is adapted to a car.
