    I'm not sure if the battery charger or the battery is the problem. Where can I purchase a car charger or replacement battery?

Break in the cable - If you able to, try to locate the break and repair. you'll probably find it's at the usb plug end. Maybe easier just to replace it.

I had to buy a new in car charger for my navman s30,but when i plug it in to the sat nav & cigerette socket it keeps showing a computer,usb & navman picture.


  • Turn the Navman off by holding the power button in the upper left corner of the device until the screen goes blank.
  • Plug the unit into its charger using the USB port on the bottom of the unit. The battery indicator light next to the power switch should turn orange, indicating that the device is charging. Once the light has turned green the charge is complete. If the light does not turn on, verify that the car charger is plugged into a working outlet.

Garmin 350 cannot charge and nav at the same time


Your battery is faulty. Did it come with an AC Charger? Ac chargers do a better job than the car Dc which really only manages to maintain a reasonable level of input. i suspect your internal batter is critical and either needs a thorough charge or replacement

My nav man will not charge or turn on why is this??


Probably the plug on the navman has suffered what we call dry solder joints from inserting and pulling out the charger you need a tech to fix it. soldering is nesessary shouldnt be too expensive I fixed mine its about half an hours work if not too damaged inside

Charging while driving(using the cigar plug)


I too just got mine from Santa... it's designed to operate while plugged into the lighter. It also charges the Li ion battery. If the Garmin screen comes on while you are using it I would suspect an error or what ever. (you DID move the little switch on the top left corner to unlock didn't you?) Just call their number 800 800-1020 and ask them. They were most helpful and were there well after the hours posted in the instruction book.

Tomtom300 gps mains charging +


1= My battery is flat, but when i put it on charge in the house it doesnt charge and no green light comes on, on my sat nav why would this be?

Could be your house charger is bad or the power connector on the back of the Tomtom is bad.

2= But when i put it in car charge it works perfect 'Y'?

You are using the "power shoe" to charge the battery. For a test unplug the power cord from the power shoe and hook it to the back of the Tomtom. If this work then the house charger is bad. If this doesn't work then the Tomtom rear power connector is bad

3= If ever i have to change battery how is this done?

You will have to remove the faceplate and disassemble the Tomtom in order to get to the battery. Or you can find a shop that repairs small electronic. Find the battery on Ebay.
