Plug the unit into your computer via the USB cable and it should reset itself.

Low battery


You need to plug it into to the cigarette lighter or your pc. I take mine in the house and connect it to the pc to charge, but it will charge with the cigarett lighter too.

Battery losing charge whilst plugged in to cig lighter


I have the same problem, when the battery goes dead, it seems to do so instantly vs. just holding the charge for less time. You can replace the battery, but with the prices coming down and the fact that the map upgrades cost what they do, I'm thinking it's more cost effective to just buy a new GPS.

I had the same problem. When you have your nuvi plugged into your cigarette lighter it doesn't charge. Your battery is probaly near dead. I called Garmin and they told me to plug it into my computer via the usb cable. Turn the Garmin off and let it charge for several hours. That did the trick

1996 Camry LE 4 cylinder, cigarete lighter


If the cigarrete lighter plug still has power then is more likely a defective lighter. I've just replaced the lighter on my Tercel so I would suggest to borrow one to try the plug before buying a new one.
Good Luck.

255w in a loop - loading maps, then restarts...can't recharge


Use a USB connection to your computer and let it charge for three hours. Also download updates while your at it. Cigarette lighter charger is not efficient
