Don't have a manual. Charging in electrical outlet at home and don;t know how long to charge for. Plug in shows a red and green lite, both on and I have been charging for over 4 hours. Comments


Most garmin nuvi satnavs take 4 hours to charge with a mains charger or a car charger. It takes 8 hours with a computer. There's a batter indicator on the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP. It will probably only appear when the charger is disconnected if it's the same as other garmin nuvis.

You can get the manual in Adobe Reader format from http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/nuvi680_OwnersManual.pdf

My Garmin nuvi 265 was working fine until 2 weeks ago. We got a screen message saying that the XM traffic was not supported, and then noticed that the unit no longer could be charged using the car...


The traffic receiver is in the car charger cable. The charger should have a red light on if it is getting power. If the light is on and the unit is not charging and you have no traffic, the charger cable is bad. If the light is off, then either the fuse did not fix the problem, blew again, or is somehow not sitting properly in the charger. Another thing you can check is by using the unit in another vehicle. If it works fine there, then the charger is not making good contact with your vehicle outlet for some reason. You will probably have to buy a new traffic receiver charging cable.

Garmin Nuvi is plugged into the electrical outlet in my car. It appears that it is not having a good electrical connection because nothing comes up on the screen like it is charging. Unsure if it is dead,...


If the lighter socket is working ok then it may be the fuse in the charger plug that's gone. It can be replaced by unscrewing the silver ring at the end of the plug and removing the fuse. A replacement fuse should be available from garmin dealers.

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?)

When plugging into car outlet Garmin 200 goes into computer interface mode


You have to use a car charger with sufficient power capacity for your Nuvo 200.
I've used a mini USB car charger that came with my e-trex, but it works only some times when I do plug/unplugging during map loading (manipulating the computer mode setting). So, I bought a HTC mini USB care charger, and know the problem is solved. Another alternative is buy from Garmin Store, the type they recommend.

Garmin 200 won't turn on, flashes "Garmin" screen when plugged in


I connected the unit to the car charger instead of the USB charger and then held down the reset for 10-15 seconds, after which the system would show the computer connection on the charger and then boot up when not on the charger.
