When i put the USB cable and connect to the LAP, its not getting charged. How can i solve the problem? do i need to install any software?


Hi - when you say "LAP" I assume you mean laptop or notebook computer. Some computer USB ports do not have sufficient power to charge (or operate) devices like cellphones, GPS, large external hard drives, etc. You may be able to charge if you disconnect all other USB devices that aren't needed to run the computer. In order to get around the problem without having to do all that, either purchase an external charger for the GPS (which may be fairly expensive) or purchase a powered USB hub.

An external powered USB hub looks like a traditional USB hub, except for the fact that it has a power cord to connect to your home power outlets. The power cord will often look like AC adapter. The powered USB hub is ideal because they provide additional USB ports, are fairly inexpensive, they provide all the power for the USB devices that are connect to them (the computer's internal power supply is not used) and it can power or charge devices connected to them without needed the computer to be powered on. Simply plug the USB hub into a USB port, and AC power source - then connect the devices that need a large amount of power to the hub's USB ports instead of the computer's USB ports.

The parts included with powered USB hub (clockwise from left): USB hub, USB connecting cable and AC power adapter.

Many powered hubs will work without the power adapter - however they will supply power to the devices connected from the computer's internal power supply.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

I have a computer and i want to know how do you charge it to a computer


If you want to know how to charge your GPS unit using your computer you can do this by simply connecting your GPS to your computer using the USB cord that should have been included with your unit. It will be a black cord with one end that should fit a USB port on your computer, and the other end will attach to the back of your GPS. Turn off your unit, then plug the smaller end into the GPS and the larger end into a USB port on your computer. Your GPS should then come on by itself. Your normal Garmin startup screen will display, and it will also display that it is loading maps. Then a graphic of a computer connected to a GPS will show on the bottom of the screen, and a white line the width of your screen will slowly change to green. The entire time you are connected your GPS will be charging. Depending on how much of your battery needs to be charged, leaving it connected for about an hour and a half should give you a full charge.

Try a USB cable that you don't use to charge a battery with. All USB cables are not alike. Some are used for transferring data and others will only charge a battery.

My garmin nuvi 200 worked fine the first 3 times


Connect your GPS to your computer with the USB cable and this will charge the GPS internal battery. Of course your computer will have to be on during the charging process. After a few hours turn on your GPS and see if it now works. If it now works then go to http://www.garmin.com and register the GPS. While you are on line also download the latest USB drivers for your computer and install them. When you reboot your GPS should be properly connected to the computer for Operating system downloads etc.

WE CHARGE THE MAGELLAN GPS AND TURN IT OFF. BUT WHEN WE GO TO USE IT AGAIN IT IS DEAD. I ONLY HAVE THE LIGHTER OUTLET TO HOOK UP FOR POWER SO WHEN I NEED TO PROGRAM IT IN THE HOUSE I DO NOT HAVE A WAY TO...


Hello kdiltzbook,

Most GPS units can be charged three different ways:

1. Connection to a computer via USB port
2. Connection to a automobile via cigarette lighter plug
3. Connection to a wall outlet via an AC adapter

Typically most GPS devices these days include only the USB cord. Some GPS units also include the cigarette lighter plug. For most GPS units the cigarette lighter plug and AC adapter are optional accessories have to be purchased in addition to the GPS.

You don't mention which model of Magellan GPS you have so I am not sure which cords your GPS should have included. It sounds like you have the cigarette lighter cord and the USB cord? I am sure that Magellan has an AC adapter available for your GPS. You will want to contact them directly (their website is http://www.magellangps.com) or visit an electronics store that sells Magellan GPS receivers (such as Best Buy™) to purchase the adapter.

However, most GPS receivers can be charged from the USB programming cord on the computer. However, ensure you are plugging the cord directly into a USB 2.0 on the computer itself NOT a port on a USB hub. (A USB hub may not output enough power to actually power and charge the GPS.)

You will also want to check and replace the fuse on the automobile plug.

I believe that both the USB and automobile cords should be charging the GPS. If neither adapter is charging the unit then the problem may be the GPS unit itself. The GPS may have a bad battery or problem with its charge circuitry. If that’s the case the unit may require factory service as the battery pack is generally not considered to be end user replaceable.

GARMIN STREET PILOT-330 GPS


Hello KTFORE1,

The Street Pilot 330 comes with both a vehicle power cord and a USB cord for connecting the unit to the computer. If I understand you correctly the GPS isn't getting power from the vehicle power cord. Does the GPS charge if connected to a computer using the USB cable? If so the problem is likely the power cord or cigarette lighter socket you are using. If the GPS doesn't charge from USB port on your computer then the problem is likely the GPS itself.

If you determine that the cable is the source of the problem, check and replace the cable's fuse. You will probably also want to check and replace your vehicle fuses as the circuit that powers the cigarette lighter might have a blown fuse. If replacing the fuses doesn't solve the issue then you might need to replace the power cord.

Best Regards.
