If the USB charger does, then check the fuses in your vehicle - also, there is a fuse at the tip of the car charger. The black plastic unscrews at the tip to reveal the .5A slow blow fuse.

Tom Tom GO720 wont recharge with car charger inn car, but does charge on USB


either your car charger cord has a short or break in it, or your charge port (lighter socket) dont work. check your fuses to see if it aint something there, then try to find another cord. It wont be a prob with your TT as it is still able to charge from usb. The problem has to be on the car or car charger (still should be an easy fix)

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 ?

Will not charge thru the USB or the car charger. Is the battery replaceable?


a magellan 4040 can not charge through the USB port and if it wont charge with a known good car or home charger, then read below.



This is very common problem with this and many model of magellans.

Try the car charger.

Make sure
green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

The following Magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 3000, 3050, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and the 6000 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your Magellan
gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...

You can
buy the port or get it repaired, HERE


if the links dont work or If you need further help, just let me know.

Have a phone charger 12 volt that fits and charges the nuvi 200 but with it plugged in it wont show anything but a computer and nuvi on screen. unplug and it works but only for a while til needs a new...


thats because the phone charger is wired different to the gps charger , u need a genuine charger, if when pluged into pc it takes longer to charge, best to have gps turned off while charging from pc..... if it still does not work/ hold charge battery in unit gone , caused by being in active for over 3 months

My garmin wont accept the usb charger,it wont charge


will it charge with your 12v car set up? If not check the usb plug on the back is it loose? get a (strong) magnifing glass and check the tabs on the inside the usb plug on the gps, some times they stick inside and don't make contact. There are 5 tabs the one on the left is + the far right is ground.

Cant use the garmin 350 while charging


The solution is really easy. Works in the car or usb charger or whatever.
Once you insert the car charger, wait till the pc connection picture comes.
Than unplug the car charger.
Re-insert it as soon as the picture goes off.
Voila. It is ready to use now!
