Question about GPS

1 Answer

Whenever I connect my Nuvi 250W to the car charger in the car, the "device connected to PC" image appears on the display and I cannot use the device for navigation. It's like it thinks the car is a PC.

My nuvi 260W displays the computer plug in sybole then turns of both while move and sitting still an d is connected to power supply. I have bought new connector for power supply.


Whenever you see the computer to GPS symbol pop up while using the DC car charger, this is an indication of a loose USB jack (bad connection) between the jack and the printed circuit board.

You should only see this symbol when connected to the PC using the USB cable. You should never see it when using the charger. Please see this link for more information and how to have it repaired:

I can't use my garmin nuvi gps 250W while it is charging. I can't navigate with out unplugging it. Please help. TY


This sometimes happens because of a problem with the mini USB plug not going far enough into the back of the satnav. It appears to be fully in but it's not. It shows a picture of a satnav connected to a computer as it thinks it's connected to one. Pushing the mini USB plug in further solves the problem.

The problem is caused by the mini usb plug at the back of the Satnav not being pushed in fully. It appears to be but bacause of wear on the socket it stops before it's in fully. Push it in further and it will be ok

Nuvi 250 will not turn on when charging.


There are two types of leads that you can buy.

The one supplied with the Garmin expects you to plug the GPS into the PC via the USB and if you use this to try and charge your Garmin in your car it will think it is connected to the PC and show the connection screen. it will charge the unit but you can't see the map.!!!

Make sure that you buy a lead specially for the Garmin for use in the car its the only type of SAT NAV that you will have this problem with.
