Question about Garmin nuvi 250W GPS Receiver

2 Answers

I bought the Garmin nuvi 250w (1GR172580) device in Orlando in Florida, USA during my last vacation trip in April 2010. I also bought the Portuguese system in order to be used in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where I leave. The device works fine without any problem. But along with the Garmin (1GR172580) device came the charger with the number is 09050105014939, which is not working anymore, because when the charger is connected to the car, the red light does not pass to the green color. What may be happening? Could you help me understand, since it was the first time this happened? So I would like to ask you the name, address an phone number of your representative in Rio de Janeiro city in Brazil, to be able to contact them to help me or even purchase a new unit which the imput is 10-30Vdc and output 5Vdc 1A Thanks in advance for your help.

    I regret to inform you that the Garmin device is practically brand new and I have already tested the connection if is poorly connected. The answer I have to give is that the connection is not loose, as your team mate is suggesting.

    So, please inform if there is a store in Rio de Janeiro city (BRAZIL) who could afford a new charger, or how I should buy a new charger from somebody else, or what specs are most relevant to buy a new unit. I can not stay without such GPS device which is not charging, do you agree?

    Best regards and thanks in advance for your prompt response.

    Providing the charger site allowed me to see how the acquisition can be performed and also all options have for Garmin GPS device.Thus, I appreciate the information I was looking for.
    However the ideal issue should to get where to buy in Brazil, specifically in Rio de Janeiro city where I live. In Garmin brochure shows how to replace the fuse by unscrewing the silver top charge device.
    I'll find a specialist in my city but I Duly recommend that Garmin GPS manufacturer provides a spare fuse, at least.
    Thanks.

Hi

Check whether the tip of the plug in unit has worked loose and is actually buried in the glove compartment. Checking periodically that the screw cap has not worked loose is suggested.

Please check the bellow links for your query...

You can use it on its internal battery but they only last an hour or two. If you can't fix the lighter socket you could add one fairly easily then the Nuvi will last for the whole trip running on car power
