First check the power light on unit when attaching car charger, if there is nothing some chargers have a fuse in the end of the charger, but if there is a green light there could be something wrong with either your battery or your unit

I have a Garmin nuvi 1350. We replaced the fuse already and when we start the car, the power cord has the red light like it is working and it will come on. However, sometimes, it will just go off or...

Is it possible the connector is damaged either inside the cigarette light or on the charger itself? I would recommend trying a different charger and check to make sure the charger doesn't draw too much energy which could blow your fuse.

The car charger wont charge the gps.

If the USB charger does, then check the fuses in your vehicle - also, there is a fuse at the tip of the car charger. The black plastic unscrews at the tip to reveal the .5A slow blow fuse.

GPS charger of my car is not working.

first check and make sure the socket in the car is getting power, like trying your phone charger or something similar. if its not, locate the fuse in the car and see if its ok. if its ok check the fuse for the charger, most are in the tip that gets plugged in to the car. most can be removed by screwing the tip off. if the fuse is ok, then there is probably a problem with the gps.

My garmin 305 only operates when connected to charger. It says that the charge is complete but does not operate when not connected to charger.

Go to the garmin website and install the firmware update.

Took about 5 minutes to do the whole thing. Seems to work fine now. Didn't even loose data.

Cannot turn power on

Yes, the fuse in in the end of the charger that plugs into the cigarette lighter. Be careful when you unscrew it as there is a spring in it. Replace the fuse if burnt out with an exact match.

Hi, as I have been in the situtaion with many electronic devices before I know how frustraing it can be when the car charger doesn't work any more. For every one out there reading this post if this happen to you again take the car charger portion that you put in the lighter for a charge, the part the goes in will unscrew, check the fuse. 99% of the time that fuse has blown and that is the cause of the unit not getting a charge, if replacing the fuse does not work the it is a bad unit and you will have to get another gps.

Dual NavAtlas XNAV3500P

I had the same problem, check the fuse, also if the fuse is blown check the piece that fits into the device, you may have lost the little part that stops the fuse from blowing, it looks like a small ring on the end, stops it from shorting.

Does anyone know where I can purchase a NavAtlas 3550 cigarette lighter charger? I have tried 2 Universal adapters and none work! HELP!!
