Are you saying that you remove it from the Suction cup charger its asking that.....

Thats normal on the Nuvi units when you release it from the cradle it will ask to stay On or Off..... this automatically creates teh last positon your car was in whne you take it off the cradle.... the last positon will store in your favorites..( its a great tool if you forget where you parked your car, just look in your favorites then Last Position it will then take you there )

To power on the Nuvi unit again there is a sliding switch on top of unit.. push left to power up.

My screen is very dim. I turned brightness as high as it will go, but still dim.


Part of your LCD is not lighting up. This tends to happen as the nuvi 200 series units age. Garmin can repair this at $69 flat rate. In my opinion it isn't worth it because you can go out and buy a newer better model for that price. But if you want it repaired give garmin a call at 800-800-1012.

My garmin 1350T just shut off and will not turn back on


If your garmin nuvi shuts off and refuses to turn back on, even if you press the power button, then it means the battery is weak and cannot power on the nuvi. Try to take out the battery and reinsert it back it then try to turn it on to see if it will turn on, if it does not still turn on, then borrow a battery from a friend and use it to test your nuvi, if it powers on, then your battery is either weak or dead.
Insert the battery into another gps and charge it with another charger for about 2 hours to see if it will hold a charge, try to use it to power your nuvi on to see if it will work. If it works, then it means your charger was not charging it initially. That means the charger is bad and need to be replaced, but if the battery does not turn on your nuvi after charging it for about 2 hours, then it means the battery is bad and need to be replaced.
Either ways both the charger and the battery need to be checked to know which of the two is faulty.
Carrying out the test will show you the faulty component and the solution is for you to replace it with a new one.
Hope this was helped you.

My garmin nuvi 255W does not charge in the car with the car charger. It freezes at the first screen and I can't get past that screen. I found my home charger and plugged it in and now the battery is...


You need a genuine Garmin car charger to both charge and see directions at the same time. If it is a non - Garmin lead you can't charge and use at the same time. the Garmin at the same time. Otherwise the unit just goes into sleep/pc mode. It took a long time to get to the bottom of this, so I thought I'd pass the information on...

I've been using after market chargers in car and on ac. They worked fine for a long time. Now, my Garmin NUVI 660 seems to turn off (goes into "charge mode" or something) when I plug my car charger into...


Yes, many aftermarket chargers are not wired the same as a Garmin charger and will cause your Nuvi to think it's connected to a PC. What happened to the original charger that plugged into the cradle (the part your Nuvi snaps into?)

Garmin nuvi 200 pick up charger as a usb cable


The problem is very simple... The GPS unit perceives whatever you plug in depending on the power supply figure.
If you car charger is not giving enough power, then the GPS perceive the cable as being connected to a pc.... thus not charging. Check with an car electrician if you can raise the power supply on your car...

Garmin nuvi does turn on when connected to power in car


Hi

I had the same problem. My Nuvi 350 did not power up for a couple of days. I suspected moisture to be the culprit. So I took my wife's hair dryer and blew hot air(in the intermediate setting) into the SD card slot in the GPS for a couple of minutes. Take care not to overheat the GPS or Screen.
Pronto my GPS powered up without any issues.
Hope this helps
