I would ignore the 250V. The concern is the current. I would not use a fuse higher than the one shipped with the unit. According to the PN you provided it is a 1A (amp) fast blow glass fuse.

Before replacing check the power line to make sure there is no short in it. Also if the cigarette lighter end gets wet it could blow.

Testimonial: "Thanks GPSDude, 1A it will be. For the record, it may be a glass fuse, but the "glass" is solid white. You're the best!"

I blew the fuse in my garmin nuvi 255w car charger. where can i get a new fuse


Look for online or just about any large automotive store or The Shack (RadioShack) just make sure to take your blown fuse in and verify they are the same size.

It is a 3AH 250V fuse; additional details could find in this LINK.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this).

Harley Davidson Wiring Diagrams and Schematics
Hi Anonymous, you have a hard/dead short that should be easy to find generally they are the easiest. Time to get out your test light and connect it to the power side of the, circuit breaker or the blown fuse receiver, start by tracking the out bound wire towards the ignition switch and beyond if necessary, when the test light quits lighting you are very close to your short. For a free wiring diagram please visit the website above. Good luck and have nice day.

Car charger for nuvi 205w


The Garmin Chargers use a 1A 5x20mm glass fuse in the tip.

The DC output of the charger is +5VDC @ 1A. The 1A rating is the max rating and your Nuvi should draw less than 1A under normal conditions.

You would not want to put a 3A in there because if there is a short in the Nuvi, you want the fuse to blow quickly. A 3A fuse is too high in value.

Sirius Sportster car kit - blown fuses


Try the other adapter and see if it works without blowing the fuse. If that fuse blows also, something is wrong with the radio.
