Garmin Forerunner 210W screen is blank. No charging symbol appears when it is on the charger.

Not sure if this is useful but double check that your charger connection to the Garmin is actually clean. I've had to clean the contacts for both my 405 and my 610 in order to make sure there was a solid electrical connection. Have you tried resetting it?

Car charger missing screw on tip can i buy a replacement

The store that you purchased the unit from should have replacement chargers. If they don't, any car accessory store that sells GPS units should be able to supply you with a replacement. Failing that you can always order on from the Garmin website:

You can choose your model number from the drop down menu, then type in vehicle power cord for what you are looking for. They will give you a picture and price for the cord. You can then choose how you want them to ship it to you.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.

When I plug the gps into the charger a computer picture shows up and I can't get it on any other screen. What's the matter?

Did you recently purchase that charger?

This usually happens when the charger is not compatible with the unit. or you could be using a non-Garmin charger. There are some "store-brand" chargers that work well, and some do not. Store brand Charger are made to be Universal. To fit multiple devices and maximize profits. You want a Garmin Specific Charger, and here is the logic why...

The reason behind it:

1. The Garmin USB Cable that you connect to your computer has a special 4-pin configuration telling the GPS that is is connected to a computer. This is the configuration most "generic" chargers use to maximize device compatibility.

2. The Garmin Car Charger has a different pin configuration with 2 less pins, giving it only positive ( + ) and Negative ( - ) to charge the GPS.

When the GPS receives the 4 pin, which is also found in a "Motorola" Cell phone charger, it will automatically sense that it is connected to a computer.

Long winded, but I wanted to explain why. Simple fix, Just go get a new charger and make sure it's Garmin compatible.

I lost my Garmin Nuvi 205 car charger and wanted to know what i could replace it with or what the charging voltage required is, perhaps i have a spare cell phone charger that would work.

You can buy a new car charger for your GPS from this site:
It should be situated under the accessory tab

I am not sure about the voltage of the device, but it should say somewhere on the unit, the unit's box or the instruction booklet

Consistent error entering garmin etrex coordinate in google earth

Consistent errors are usually projection or datum related. If you are taking coordinates collected in one projection and displaying them in your GPS in another, you the points will offset. I'm not talking about the decimal degrees 00.000n 000.0000w vs 00 00 00N 00 00 00W. I'm talking about the geographic model to represent the surface of the earth. Google Earth generally uses a geographic projection with WGS 1984 or WGS84 Datum. Make sure you are using the same settings on your GPS.

Garmin charger has red light on and wont charge

mine too. Its brand new. Worked OK in my car for a couple of small trips, and unfortunately I didn't notice the lights status on the charger. Then lost satellite reception (not being charged at the time). Now red light on car charger and kept turning off/won't turn on. I have an old mains charger from garmin 660 which has a malfunctioning antenna and this 1490 was meant to replace ! Its charging now anddoes turn on, but no answer yet I'm afraid. I intend to register it with garmin and log a call with them. Also looking at the manual, it says there is a fuse in the head of the charger which should be checked. I haven't done this yet, but not sure if red light would be on if fuse had blown ?

My garmin will only turn on while it's plugged into the car charger. I have had it plugged into my computer for some time and it won't power on while connected to the computer or while unplugged- I...

Time for a new battery. If you talk to garmin they will want to replace the entire unit. You can buy a battery for about $23 and do it yourself.
Here is on place that sells them but I would also search for others to compare prices and specs.

My Garmin won't turn on or charge

Press all at the same time: Power, mode, up, enter and lap (yes press all five at the same time). Then let go and it should work then.

The tip of the car charger is missing and so is the fuse. how do I go about fixing it or do I just order a new car charger. My cousin has the same garmin and his charger did the same thing.

It's kind of tough to find those parts by themselves. Your best bet is to just order a new charger and make sure the end is on tight this time. The part that scres on is usually meta and knurled, so you could use a pair of plyers to tighten it.
