Well if you have the factory car charger. There is a fuse inside of it. This is indicated in the manual. But it could also be the cigarette lighter fuse in the car is blown. I would make sure the cigarette outlet has power. If the cigarette lighter has power and you have the factory power cable that has a fuse try this. f the unit will not charge in your vehicle, you might need to replace the fuse that is located at the tip of the vehicle adapter.
1. to change the fuse unscrew the black, round end piece on the vehicle power adapter and remove it. inspect the fuse to see if it is blown. If not end here.
2. if determined the fuse is blown remove the fuse (glass and silver cylinder), and replace it with a 1A fast blow fuse.
3.ensure that the silver tip is placed in the black end piece. screw on the black end piece
let me know how this works by following up with a comment and i can instruct you on where to go from here. Thanks.

Garmin gps powers off even when fully charged


If you're "recharging" via the car charger - you might want to try charging via USB jack on your computer - or AC adapter (if your GPS shipped with one) for 5 or more hours.

Many Garmin units develop this condition when used strictly in the car / cigar outlet power source. While connected to your computer, you should go to Garmin's website and download, install & run the "webupdater" software. When complete, your Garmin GPS will have the latest firmware and patches to the software (not maps!).

After charging via USB or AC adapter, your GPS should stay on. If your GPS turns on via a slide switch on the top, Slide the switch from OFF and hold in the ON position for 10 seconds before letting go of the switch. This should force a "boot" on the GPS.

If you're unable to get the device to power up, contact Garmin Support to determine if your device is affected by a a recent battery recall or if there are other suggestions they have to solve the problem.

I hope this helps!

Can you charge a nuvi 1300 with usb with computer and how long does the charging take??


I have just got a Nuvi 1300 and have plugged into my computer with the Nuvi switched off. A little icon (showing GPS unit and computer) shows on GBS screen and unit starts to charge. I reckon about 3 hours to fully charge. You have to unplug GPS though to see battery status.

My nuvi 1300 gps keeps shutting off after about 5 seconds though it is fully charged


Hello,

the fault is from the battery. The battery cell is weak and cannot hold charge. Its high time you replaced your charger.

Take care.

My Garmin will not power up.


The batteries may be depleted. Try charging via USB cable connected to a computer if cigarette lighter method does not work. When connected to a computer, the device should power on but no maps will be displayed. Disconnecting from the computer should cause the 760 to reboot - if the batteries are charged.

After charging, slide and hold the power switch for 5 to 10 seconds to power on.
