This happens when the power lead is not plugged fully into the back of the satnav. Push it in further and the problem will be solved.

I used it 10 months ago. its been in the car ever since and when i tried to use it i get the garmin name and then it goes blank.

If this happens even when the unit is plugged into the power source (lighter) then you should replace the battery. You can search online for battery replacements and instructions. Then plug into your PC for garmin updates. Updates are important for Garmins.

I need to find an electro sun food dehydrator user manual. Purchased 25+ years ago. Still "new" in box. Has never been used because no user manual came with it.

I just got one from a friend whom hadnt ever used it with no manual. All you have to do is plug it in and let it warm up, and just put the stuff you want to dehydrate in it for 8 or so hours. Fruits, veggies, and even meats for jerky. Hope this helps!

Hello, My Garmin 260 ran out of battery 3 months ago. I did not attempt to recharge it until two weeks ago. i used a usb cable and plugged it into my computer overnight. It still did not charge... what...
This place has the battery and tools come with it!. its super easy and way cheaper than buying a new garmin. 2 screws and unplug the old battery and plug in the new. I did mine and I never messed with the internals before.

No connection to satellite

Please read the solution that resolved this problem for someone else. Most likely, you have already tried this.

If the above procedure does not work for you, the entire antenna assembly will need to be replaced.
The other option is to purchase an external antenna for your Nuvi and plug it into the external antenna port (gold connector) on the Nuvi antenna assembly.

Best wishes,

I had this problem. I fixed it myself. The gold connector inside where you plug the charger in was not making contact so it would not charge the battery. I opened my gps and with a small screw driver i pushed the gold connector out so it would make contact with the charger. It works great now. I found this out after buying new car charger, home charger and battery and it still would not charge.
