In order for you to do that you need to use a USB cable to connect the unit to your computer.

My garmin seems to need help as it does not work after an all night charge. It goes on to the 2 or 3rd screen. Also, in the car,the cord might be weak at it says low battery, when I tried my daughters...


Have you tried plugging it into your computer to charge it yet? Garmin's can charge from your usb port or the car charger. If you dont have the USB cable for your computer you probably can get one at Bestbuy or Ebay. If after you charge it from your computer (and remember your computer has to be on while its charging) then I would suspect you have a bad battery in your unit. Then I would suggest to contact Garmin for repairs. Their website is www.garmin.com and they can help you from there. They have phone numbers and email address's to ask for tech support.

I hope this helps you out if it does please leave me feedback.

How to charge battery


There are 3 ways to charge the battery in your garmin nuvi satnav.
  1. Connect it to a computer with the mini USB lead that should have come with it or can be bought in any computer shop. This is the slowest method taking approx 8 hours.
  2. Connect it to your car cigarette lighter with the charger lead which should have come with it. This takes approx 4 hours to charge fully.
  3. Charge with a mains charger. This does not usually come with a satnav but can be bought seperately in shops that sell garmin satnavs. This method also takes approx 4 hours to charge fully.

Brand new Garmin Nuvi 1490 T out of the box. How do I charge it? The only devices in box were a car charger (my commute is 5 minutes daily) and a USB connector? Should I just plug the USB into my computer?...


Garmin satnavs come with a charge out of the box.
In some cases your device may have lost a charge during shelf life. In this case you can charge these units in three ways:
  1. Place unit on computer with USB cable for approximately 8-12 hours
  2. Place unit on Garmin specified AC adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours
  3. Place unit on 12V vehicle adaptor for approximately 4-6 hours.
Some cars continue to supply power to the cigarette lighter socket when turned off and others don't. If yours doesn't you can charge it from your computer. There's no indicator to show that it's charging or when it's charged. However when you disconnect the satnav from the computer and turn it on there's a battery state indicator which shows if it's fully charged or not.

How to charge garmin 765 on computer


Very simple: connect the cable that came with the GPS: USB end to computer, mini USB to the GPS. When the unit is charging, the battery icon will disappear.

Unfortunately, Garmin did not think you would want to know the percentage of charge completed (they confirmed it to me in email), so you have to guess that after 2-4 hours your GPS is fully charged.

Battery goes dead after 3 hour use


As the battery charges and charges the charge time declines. You can get a high capacity battery for your garmin for about twenty dollars here:

Garmin 2005 will not charge, new in November of


Make sure the internal battery is charged by connecting it to your computer with the included USB cable. Make sure the computer is on and running. Let it charge at least a couple of hours and then try to turn the GPS on while still connected to the computer. If the unit still will not turn on you might need to return it to Garmin.

Internal battery won't charge


Common issue. Steps to troubleshoot/solve:
1. Pull off face, press reset tab.
2. If unit wont turn on or if turns off immediately, connect to home computer using mini usb on side of gps (any usb cord that fits will do). This will charge the internal gps battery, which is discharged.
3. You will not be able to see the gps charge indicator while the usb cord is plugged into the unit. To check charge level, disconnect it, turn it on, and note the large "battery" icon.
4 Do you have a dead internal battery? If the gps holds a charge from your computer usb port, you don't.
5. If you have a dead battery, Google DIY replacement. With some soldering it can done for $15 total.
6. If you don't have a dead battery, the issue is charging from the cigarette lighter socket. Your car socket may have blown a fuse (check car manual). Your charger unit may have blown a fuse (unscrew the tip, check fuse inside). Also, some car sockets don't work when the ignition is off. Test yours.
7. There is a good chance the connection of the charger wire to the gps cradle is the problem. Fiddle with that. Replacement cradles are available for the c340 at about $25.
8. If your unit is not charging from the cradle/socket, buy a 12v usb cord. Plug into socket and into usb port of the gps. This is a workaround or alternative to buying a new cradle.
9. IMPORTANT: observe the "battery" icon while driving, esp. if you have doubts about charging. Basically, if you can see the icon, you're not connected to an outside (car or computer) power source. That is, if you can see the battery-charge indication, it means your battery is currently discharging and unless you get another power source to work it will be dead in a few hours.
