When you connect the satnav to a computer with a usb cable it automatically starts to charge. However it takes about 8 hours to charge compared to around 4 on a car charger.

Garmin 705 - device not found by Training Center


Garmin has moved everything to Garmin Connect. Depending on your device, Training Center may or may not be supported anymore. You can go to the link to read more on Garmin Connect. Also, Garmin now uses Garmin Express to sync and update devices. I'll attach the link. https://www.garmin.com/en-US/software/express

Garmin 265 wt is charging via USB cable.It will not connect to the garmin website.


Hello,

The Garmin Communicator Plugin needs to be installed on your computer.
http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator

Also check to be sure that the data cable is the correct one.
When connect between the nuvi and the computer, the nuvi should show that it is in mass storage mode by displaying a computer on the screen.

The correct cable is Garmin part number 010-10723-01.

How do I recharge the battery on my Garmin Nuvi 255WT? I would also like to know how to update my Garmin?


Hello,

Recharging the battery is done by connecting the nuvi to a vehicle power cable in the car through the vehicle power accessory outlet or cigarette lighter.
The unit can also be charged via a powered USB port off your computer via the USB power/data cable or an AC power adapter through the USB power/data cable.

Can I charge my Nuvi 1310 via a usb cable on any pc for the first time for the 4 hour period, as instructed?


You can charge your nuvi via the USB cable on any pc but it will take 8 hours approx rather than the 4 it would take with a car charger or mains charger.

My garmin ran out of charge and when it was plugged in to the car charger it says loading maps then stays on the garmin page and goes no further...


Disconnect the nuvi from the car charger and connect it to your computer's USB port with the supplied cable (or any USB cable you have that fits it), and leave connected overnight (8 + hours).

You should be able to get the GPS to start up as expected after charging via USB port. if this happens again, simply repeat.

Good luck!

The unit will take a very slow charge via your computer. I tell most people no it doesnt charge VIA your PC just because it takes soooo long. I recommend getting a new power cable from GPSCity. Just call them up or follow the like to the cable you need.

** This cable is for the Nuvi 200 series GPS units

How can i configure my pc to recognize my garmin gps?


When you attach your Gamin to your PC via a USB cable, your PC should recognize it and add it as another drive letter on your computer. If it doesn't, you might try rebooting your computer while the Garmin is still attached.
