There is a USB cable that will connect to the pc. Only if your device has this cable for downloads.

I have a new Garmin NUVI 57 LM. I have it plugged into my computer to charge. How long should it take to get charged?


Charging via a PC is not the quickest way to charge a GPS because many USB ports can not supply enough current, so the battery will take longer to charge. Using an AC adapter is a better way. Leaving the unit to charge over night should be fine. The way to tell if the GPS is fully charged is to look at the battery icon on the main screen of the GPS. It consists of 4 bars. 4 bars = fully charged. 3 bars = 75%, 2 bars = 50% and 1 bar = 25%.

How can I charge my Tomtom GPS 550 at home using a USB to my PC ? Or can it be charged only in the Car using the Car Charger ? How long should it take to fully charge using USB & also on Car Charger ?...


i dont believe it can chagre via usb as usb only provides up to 5v of power you can buy from walmart a cheap ac to car adapter (makes your ac outlet a cig lighter adapter) and power it that way.

Can I charge my Nuvi 1310 via a usb cable on any pc for the first time for the 4 hour period, as instructed?


You can charge your nuvi via the USB cable on any pc but it will take 8 hours approx rather than the 4 it would take with a car charger or mains charger.

Describe your how to charge my magellan roadmate 5045...does it have to be on?


hi crystaldehar

no, it doesnt have to be on, but does take a few hours to charge...magellan recommends using the car charger or the ac adapter to initially charge it for atleast two hours...if you use the car charger, there should be a light on the charger to tell you its working and charging your unit (provided theres nothing wrong with it)

you should also have gotten a usb cable with your unit, it will (should) also charged while hooked to your PC via the usb cable.

let me know if you need further help...HERE is your manual

Can I charge my Magellan roadmate with USB cable connected to the computer?


It depends on the Roadmate that you have. :
- If your Roadmate has a separate plug-in port for charging your unit IN ADDITION TO a USB port, then no, your Roadmate cannot be charged using your computer via the USB cable.
- If your Roadmate only has a USB port available for charging your unit, then yes, you can charge it via your computer via USB.
However, please note, according to Magellan, charging your unit using your PC via USB can take up to 12 hours to charge vs. 4-6 hours when using the vehicle power adapter.
FYI: This is mainly due to USB constraints on pretty much all electronic devices. USB cannot carry the same amount of power to a device. It uses what is commonly known as a 'trickle' charge to recharge a device. It carries much less current than a full-blown charger (like an AC power adapter).

How do I charge the Garmin 265 WT with my desktop PC? I don't even know how to tell if the battery needs charging. This is my first GPS and I have no idea how to charge it, tell if it's on, etc etc


yes, you can use your pc via the usb cable provided with your unit, or the car charger.

to tell if its charging, go to the map screen then menu, the charge indicator is on the top right of screen...should be green while charging.

Unable to charge the 3100. If charged via car


the Magellan Maestro can not be charged using the USB connection.

make sure green light is on if using the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

The following Magellan 800,860,2000,2200t,2500,3000,3050,3100,3140,4000,4040,4050 and the 6000t are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your Magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port.

you can get it repaired here
or buy the port here

Tomtom wont charge.


If it is charging via a USB connection on your computer there is nothing wrong with the TT. It doesn't matter if you are trying to charge via USB, mains, or car charger the connection is the same for all in your TT. I would look elsewhere for the problem. More than likely your car charger is faulty.
