Question about MyGuide 3100 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

When I power my sat nav through my computer using a USB lead the sat nav works properly (ie the screen display is perfect) when I use the sat nav in my car using my cigarette lighter as the power supply and a mini USB connector it would appear that there is to much power as the screen is so bright it is impossible to see the instructions. I have tried powering the device with two different car chargers and get the same result. I look forward to hearing from you with a possible fix yours Ernie Andrews

Hi Ernie, as you've already tried two different chargers, it sounds clear that it's not a charger problem. But, did you try also a different cigarette lighter? The problem may due to your car CL over power (maybe a fuse went...) If it doesn't work please let me know, we'll try smth different. Regards, Peter

Hi kuldipdhanja this sounds like it could be an internal fault with the video module or the sat nav drive, you could try discontecting the battery negative lead for 15 minutes to reset the control units, you will have to remove the spare wheel and unfasten the air compressor bracket to get to the battery, this fix may only be temporary but it is alot cheaper than replacing parts. regards mark.

Garmin 660 wont operate on power lead


Are you using the Garmin AC adapter or the Garmin car adapter? Using the wrong cable and the Garmin will think that you are trying to connect to a computer. Not all USB cable are alike.

When connected to your computer it thinks that you want to upload or donwload information.
