you can get the manual at www.garmin.com
you'll also need to get yourself a usb cable... the normal end for the computer and i believe the other end is called a mini b connector.
please take a moment to rate this solution.. thanks

SOURCE: my Garmin Nuvi doesnt charge
I've received many units for repair where the customer thougth that the battery was bad because the unit would not turn on or stay on long.
The problem was really caused by broken connections on the mini-USB jack. Please see this link for more info, specifically look at the section dealing with the mini-USB connector.

hello. Begin by turning the volume all the way on. It is the little dial on the upper right side of the garmin. If that doesn't give you sound, return the unit as it is under warranty.
