First check the socket a cigarette lighter! You could borrow one if you've lost yours because they are all the same size. If it works then read on.. Most cigarette lighter ADAPTERS I've seen have an LED on them to tell you it's making good contact. If it has got an LED but it's not illuminating then unscrew the black cap at the tip of the adapter and check the fuse. If the fuse is blown replace it with one of the same rating. If that was no help at all then try resetting the Garmin. Unclip the face place and press the reset button. Now try turning it on. Hopefully I have given you at least one thing new to try! :) Regards, SparkGap

How I can recharge the battery?


You can charge the battery by connecting the satnav to your computer with the mini USB lead for 8 hours with both turned on. You can also charge it by leaving the car charger connected to it and plugged into the cigarette lighter socket of your car for 4 hours. There must be power going to the cigarette lighter socket. On some cars power is always available at the socket but on others it is only available when the car engine is on.

I have a question about my newly purchased Nextar GPS. I would like to know if it is ok to leave it in my car (as long as the temperature is not extreme cold or hot) with the charger plugged in to the car...


On some cars the power continues to go to the cigarette lighter socket when the car is turned off but on others it doesn't. If your cigarette lighter socket still has power when the car is turned off then it should not be left plugged in as it will shorten the life of the battery.

Also you should plug the charger out before starting the car as the alternator can send a surge of power through the system when the car starts and many satnavs have been burned out by this surge.

NO OUTLET TO PLUG INTO CAR


Hi,

Most GPS would have a cigarette lighter adapter to charge the unit while in the car. If you vehicle has onle 1, then it would be needed to pullout the cigarette lighter and use that for the charger. If your unit does not have a cigarette lighter adapter/charger, then pls post back the brand/model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a Mio C220 that does not power on even though battery is charged. Will not work off of battery or plugged into cigarette lighter. Bought it in Nov. 07 but have lost box, receipt, software, and all...


Mio wants people to know, especially the folks who recently bought the Mio C220, that you need to put the SD card in the unit for it to work. The Mio C220 has the maps on the SD Card, and it seems that not everyone knows to put the SD card in the unit before firing it up. No SD card means no working GPS.
Mio Says:
1. Before you power on your C220, insert the SD Card firmly into the slot on the right side of the device
2. Once the SD card has been inserted into the device, power on your C220 by pressing and holding the power button for 10 seconds.
For More information check out the Mio GPS Page on the SD Card for Mio C220

Should my garmin 260 work while it is plugged into the power source?


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.

How to recharge the unit


you can charge it via the usb or cigarette lighter.  either method will work and i am not aware of any problems created by using the lighter.  that really should be the primary charge method as it is expected to be used in the car.  is it charging on your computer.  if it is, but not on the lighter you may want to ensure that the lighter is itself working correctly and then also check to make sure that the fuse in the car charger is intact.  just a few suggestions

No power to unit, but powers on okay in house with AC power adapter


Not sure if you'll see this post, as you asked the question back in Nov, but I
thought I'd tell you what I know anyway.

I and my parents bought the same exact unit within a week of each other.
There's works, and mine does not.

I took their cradle, and hooked it to my GPS, and it came on, no problem.
I took my cradle, and hooked it to theirs, and boom, nothing.

So, with that, I was able to isolate that the problem is definitely in the cradle.

I went to the manufacturer website, registered my Magellan Roadmate 700,
and then I was able to contact customer support. I am writing to you as
I wait for their reply. Here's their website.

Hope this helps!
