Nuvi 610 - External charging causes screen to freeze.

When I connect my nuvi to my PC via USB connector to charge the battery, the opening splash screen image freezes and stays that way until I disconnect the USB cable.
Also when I charge the unit using an AC adaptor, the screen again freezes but can only be unfrozen by pressing the nuvi Reset button.
Any adviced welcome.
Many thanks,
David707

    Thanks Danasaur,
    I have solved the problem by buying a kosher Garmin AC Charger. The charger I was using was advertised as a "Garmin compatible" charger but cleary wasn't, so I bit the bullet and bought an OEM one.
    Thanks for your advice, which makes sense in the situation when the narrey is low but in my case it was showing fully charged.
    Manty thanks,
    David707

Don't disconnect it just because the screen freezes. This can happen if the battery is depleted too far, because the load is too great for charging AND running the device simultaneously. Leave it connected for 20 minutes or so, to see if the screen returns to normal appearance. If not, then you will be needing a new battery. Be sure to charge the new one BEFORE it is fully depleted. They are not NiCd batteries, so there is no need to fear ?memory effect". With NiMh and Lithium batteries, those days are gone, thank God!

Charge indicator


Perhaps you want to charge via a USB connector on your PC. Could be the PC connections are not correct for delivering 5V on that connector.
The manual also says:
Connect the camera directly to the computer; do not use a USB hub or keyboard.
Please try to charge via the external charger that came with the camera. If that fails too, please try to replace the USB cable.

Garmin 255w i replaced the battery, symptons of charging


Hello
There sill be a battery symbol in the forner of the screen which sill indicate advancing the charging signal [very like battery signal of a cellphone] in green color. You can see it on its manu page. To increase the accuracy of the battery guage, gully discharge the battery and then fully charge it. Do not unplug the Nuvi, until it is totally charged. Connect the vehicle power cable to the mini USB connector on your Nuvi and to a power outlet in your vehicle. The vehicle key may need to be turned ON/ACC for Nuvi to charge.
Connect an AC adapter [optional accessory] to the nuvi and a wall outlet.
Connect your Nuvi to a computer using a USB cable. The computer must be ON for the nuvi to charge. OK.

When plugged into pc get error on pc power surge on usb hub port


Some computers have a limited power capacity on the USB ports, another possibility is that your gps battery is too low to be charged via the USB connection, try charging it with a wall or car adapter first, then connect to your pc.

Nuvi 250 will not turn on when charging.


There are two types of leads that you can buy.

The one supplied with the Garmin expects you to plug the GPS into the PC via the USB and if you use this to try and charge your Garmin in your car it will think it is connected to the PC and show the connection screen. it will charge the unit but you can't see the map.!!!

Make sure that you buy a lead specially for the Garmin for use in the car its the only type of SAT NAV that you will have this problem with.

Garmin nuvi won't turn on


folks, the garmins have an on-board battery that needs to be powered up (at least occasionally) via the usb port - like from your computer. just using the dc car power cord does nothing for this battery. i've had this exact same problem on both my 760 and 780 nuvi units. fixed it using the usb charge. seems to run down differently for all the various nuvi models. my regular charge will hold for 7 hours on my old 660, my 760 and 780 work about 5 hours. my 'power up' failed on the 660 after 10 months with no internal battery charge, but the 7xx models only took about 5-6 months to 'fail.' hope this helps. jack b :-) in midland, tx usa

FROZEN SCREEN


By David707,
Since posting ma last re: Screen Freezing on external charge; I did manage to get the system back to some normality by pressing the Reset button located underneath the GPS Antenna flap. However this is likely to delete personally stored data on the system.
I should also state that the same problem occurs when I connect the 610 t my PC via the USB connection (another way to externally charge the battery).
A more satisfactory answer required though.

Garmin nuvi 360 power problem


You'll need to open the case and replace the battery. Batteries can be purchased online here or a couple other places on the web by searching for "nuvi 360 replacement battery". I'd get the 1400mah or greater for a replacement, it'll burn a little longer than the weaker models. If the unit operates when plugged into the charger, then the fuse and cable are good. Open the case by removing the retaining screws, then carefully prying the unit apart. The new battery simply plugs into the connector after removing the old one.
