    I have the same problem. Maps don't power up. The unit starts, then shuts off. If I knew the garmin dies within a year, I would have never bought one.

    it goes to loading maps and then it shuts off.

    I am also having this problem - cant find the original box or info for the unit or receipt so am going to try going to halfords for a new power adaptor - have tried changing fuse in tip of exiting adaptor, all my other adaptors are working for things like ipod transformer and 3-way sockets and adaptor to power up mobile phones/blackberry so it is not the power from the car that is at fault

Won't come on even when connected to a pc


Why should it? Connect it to something that is 12 volts DC - like the cigarette lighter receptacle in your car. A PC is not the proper power source or voltage.

I just took my Garmin 1200 out of the box and plugged it into the cigarette lighter in my car and it did not work...I have a blank screen...my car is 12 years old!


No power at all?
Check your lighter socket to see if it's getting power (plug lighter in and see if it gets hot). Check the power plug on the provided cable. It contacts a fuse that may either be missing or blown. And last, check the connection of the cable as it plugs in the rear of the Nuvi.

How to cargs battery


No you don't unless of course your power supply does not work unless the key is on, otherwise plug one end into the 12 volt supply, the other end into the gps and happy charging.

Shutting off automatically or switching to battery despite being plugged into cigarette lighter


Your Nuvi has suffered the firmware or system software equivalent of a stroke.

I can help you fix your Garmin Nuvi 200W.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Garnub Nuvi 500 power source


I have checked around but can't find anything smaller than 12 volt booster pack, the type used for boosting car batteries. They have a cigarette lighter outlet. They are quite heavy to carry around after a while but they can come in handy depending on the circumstances.

Tottom direct power supply


No, it will fry the unit!!!

You need the cigarette lighter adapter to bring the voltage down to 5V. More than 5V will fry the One.

Garmin nuvi 12 volt power cord


Could be the cord or your car plug. Does it fit snug? I have a 1996 Acura TL and the way the cigarette lighter is designed, I have to give it a bit of pressure so it makes good contact. try your unit in another vehicle and see if that solves the problem. If so, it's your car's cigarette lighter connection.
