The C510 does have traffic, so if the subscription is still active, youll need a traffic adapter....whats wrong with the original charger that you say is broken...if its not working, check the end of the charger that goes in the lighter socked, the tip of the charger should unscrew and there will be a fuse inside it.

you can read or download a copy of your manual HERE

btw, the prices you mentioned sound a little high...did you get those off ebay¿



let me know if you need more help

Seems to be dead .wont turn on when plugged into the cigarette lighter Garmin street pilot c 510


Hello,

Before writing the unit off as dead I would try obtaining a new 12v power cable and maybe try your cable in someone else vehicle, often the 12v power in your car can short not providing power to the GPS.

Hope this helps!

Battery


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

My husband had the same problem with his i2 Street Pilot.
He went to the Garmin web site and downloaded the latest
updated software version. You can then chose the language options, too.

SailorMan,
Contacted Garmin Tech Support and they verified the problem with the WAAS. They said the engineers were looking at the problem. Estimated the fix would be ready in 2 to 3 months. I turned the unit on inside where the unit could not receive any satellites then disabled the WAAS and the unit works without problems. It is just not as accurate.
