This sounds like it is set to turn off automatically on loss of external power (the normal setting) and ther is something that is interrupting the power connection (intermittant external power) which causes the unit to keep turning itself off.

Check to make sure there is a good connection where the power cord plugs into the "cigarette lighter" or power port. If you have a 2nd power port on the vehicle, try changing the connector to the other port and see if that changes the behavior or fixes the problem.

If that does not do it, the next most likely cause is a broken wire in the power cable that intermittantly makes and breaks contact. If that's the problem, a new power connector cable will fix it.

It is very unlikely the weather has anything to do with it.

If that doesn't do it, contact Garmin for their free technical support:

http://www.garmin.com (and press the Support button)
or 1-800-800-1020

It could be other things but the Tech Support folks will be happy to help.

I dont know how to charge my GARMIN nuvi 1200 with the usb cable


There are 3 ways to charge your garmin nuvi 1200 as follows;
  1. Connect your satnav to a computer with the mini USB cable. Plug the narrow end into the satnav, where the power cable goes, and the other end into the USB port of your computer. Both computer and satnav must be turned on. It will take about 8 hours to charge like this.
  2. Connect your satnav to your car charger and plug the charger into the cigarette lighter socket of your car. It will take about 4 hours to charge.
  3. You can get an optional mains charger which also takes 4 hours to charge the satnav.

I have a garmin nuvi 200. I'm having problems trying to charge the device. I have tried charging it in my car as well as the computer. Once I try charging it a black screen appears that says garmin as...


This is meant to happen when it's connected to your computer but not to your car charger. Sometimes it happens, when connected to a car charger, because the mini USB plug on the charger lead doesn't go in far enough into the satnav. It feels like it's fully in but it's not. If you push it in further it should solve the problem.

It takes 8 hours approx to charge a satnav connected to your computer but only 4 hours approx with the car charger or mains charger.

How to charge battery


There are 3 ways to charge the battery in your garmin nuvi satnav.
  1. Connect it to a computer with the mini USB lead that should have come with it or can be bought in any computer shop. This is the slowest method taking approx 8 hours.
  2. Connect it to your car cigarette lighter with the charger lead which should have come with it. This takes approx 4 hours to charge fully.
  3. Charge with a mains charger. This does not usually come with a satnav but can be bought seperately in shops that sell garmin satnavs. This method also takes approx 4 hours to charge fully.

The problem is not the power lead. It's the socket on the back of the satnav. Due to wear when you plug in the mini usb plug it feels as if it's fully in but it's not. Push it in further and it'll work ok.
