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.

SOURCE: Nuvi 350 wont charge with car adaptor. But charges with ac charger in usb port of Nuvi

Are you using the same port on the Nuvi to connect the car adapter and the ac charger, or two different ones? If not, then the jack could be broken (solder joint, pin?).

SOURCE: The USB port on the NUVI 260 is loose and will not charge

You will not be able to refasten it yourself. This is a surface mount part and you need a very small tip soldering iron to fix it, plus you ned to know how to modify it so it wont break again. Please see this link:

It doesn't REALLY matter, but it's always best to have anything turned off when you charge it. Hope this helps.

Just bought Garmin 1300 series unit. Need to charge batteries. Can I do this by using my computer or do I have to use car battery?


You can charge it with your computer if you wish. It will take about 8 hours with the computer compared to 4 hours with the car charger. To charge it with your computer just connect the satnav to your computer with the mini USB lead. The computer and satnav must be both turned on.

Garmin nuvi 1310 will not charge using pc. It will charge on car battery but batt charging symbol does not display.


A couple of things to try: 1) Use a different USB cable. The one you're trying to use my not be working properly. 2) Try the other USB ports. Most computers have more than one, and there may be an issue with the one you're using. Usually, two USB ports are supplied from the same connector inside the computer, so you might have to try all the USB ports. 3) Try charging the GPS on a different computer with both cables.

Most of the time, one of these solutions will solve the problem. Good luck! Please rate my reply, thanks.

I just bought a garmin nuvi 1300 and cannot get it charged. nothing fits into the gps. please help


your device should have come with 2 cables
- a USB cable which connects from your computer to the back of your Nuvi 1300 GPS
- an automobile power cable which connects from the 12v cigarette socket to the back of your device
both should be able to charge your device.

Do i charge my garmin at home with the power on or off?


You can charge your satnav either on or off with mains or car charger. A full charge takes around 4 hours. You can charge it on your computer which takes around 8 hours by plugging it into the USB port of your computer. When you plug it into your computer it will turn on automatically.

How to charge a nuvi 1300 GPS


There are 3 ways to charge your Garmin nuvi satnav.
  1. You can use the car charger that should have come with it. Plug the mini USB plug into the satnav and the other end into the cigarette lighter socket of your car. This method takes approx 4 hours.
  2. You can charge it with a mains charger. This doesn't normally come with the satnav but has to be bought separately. Some dealers do throw one in though so it's worth mentioning. This method also takes approx 4 hours
  3. You can charge it with your computer. By connecting it to your computer with the mini USB lead it charges. This method is the slowest taking around 8 hours.

How do I charge the nuvi 1300?


You can charge it from the USB port on your PC/laptop, if you don't have the original wall/car adapter; all you need is a USB to miniUSB (male mini USB B-type) cable which you should find at any electronics store.

My gps is not turning on. I tried to charge but there is no signal. Can you please help me?


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.
