If you were using a standard Nuvi 3xx cradle, pull the charger cord from the back of the cradle and plug it into the side of the Nuvi, into the mini-USB port. You can charge it that way.

Where you plug in to charge is broke


Hi.

If you broke the lighter socket on car dash, replace it.

If you broke the cable replace the cable. Here the spare:Garmin Power Cables

If you instead damaged the power socket on your Garmin, call the Garmin number listed in the owners manual. The Sat Nav must be sent to Garmin for repair:Garmin ' Contact

Next time use a Suction Mount Windscreen Holder

Regards.

I need instructions on how to mount the nuvi 200w to my windshield


To secure the nuvi 200w to your windshield with the included suction cup mount (pictured below),


steve_con_6.jpeg

center the GPS on the clip, and tip the bottom edge on the bracket. Push the top of the GPS against the top clip until it clicks into place. Hold the bracket and GPS near the windshield where you like it best. Note where the suction cup is on the windshield in relation to the mirror, etc. Remove the GPS from the mount's clip by pushing the top tab back from the top of the GPS.

Clean the windshield (or portion that the suction cup will be stuck against) with a paper towel or newspaper and ammonia solution like Windex, etc. Clean the suction cup with the paper towel and Windex, too.

Lift the lever at the base of the mount - is shown in the picture above - if it isn't already. With the mount oriented as shown in the picture above, press the suction cup against the windshield where desired with one hand. Hold the mount firmly against the glass and use your other hand to press the lever on the base back toward the suction cup and glass. Press until it lays flat against the base / suction cup. Plug the power cord into the GPS and reinstall the GPS in the mount clips as done earlier.

To remove from the windshield, release the GPS from the mount clips, and lift the lever away from the base / suction cup. Locate the tab that is connected to the suction cup edge near the lever. Pull on the tab away from the glass to break the suction seal and remove from the windshield.

If this was helpful, please rate it 4 thumbs up. Thanks & good luck!

How do you get started... where do you plug in the gps in my toyota avalon? I have a 5045


Hello, If i understand correctly, you are just trying to set up your Magellan gps into your Toyota Avalon. First of depending on the kit you got for the bracket to hold the unit, it normally will have a suction cup, that secures the bracket, put the bracket on the window, normally to the right of driver view and toward bottom of window, then after putting mounting (suction cup and gps holder) on window, then mount gps in to bracket, now your gps is mounted at this point on window. Now, of course you have to plug it in. GPS kits when you buy them normally have a 110 power plug ( to plug into home outlet) and some will have with the kit, a 12 volt cigarette type of plug to plug in your car (which is 12 volt power) In your home of course you can charge the gps off your 110 power, and gps will run off internal battery for a few hours, but you will find out like with mine, that your better off to plug into car for power, because the internal battery does not last very long. I have a Magellan as well, and they are great units. NOW this being said, if you did not get with your gps a 12 volt car adapter for your gps, you will have to get one. ( unless you have a power converter, which takes 12 volt and converts it to 110 power, but that's another story and only recommended for devices that do not have 12 volt adapter capabilities)

In conclusion if you have the 12 volt adapter to plug in your gps, all you do is find your cigarette lighter, take out your cigarette lighter, put in glove box for storage, and plug your gps in your cigarette lighter, or any other 12 volt cig lighter plugin. That's all there is to it, and now you have power running off your car. Thanks mike , hope this helps

How long do i charge,does car have to be running to charge?


Charge time depends on brand and model of your GPS. I'd say between two and six hours. For most GPS devices you can just keep the charger connected to the device and only remove it when you park the car in a place where theft is possible. When connected to the charger, the device should be running even if the battery is depleted.

If you connect to a cigarette lighter plug, the car does not need to be running, but the electricity must be switched on, i.e. key inside and turned into first position.

If you have a GPS mounted fixed into the console, there is no generic answer, in most cases, I guess, it is the same as with the cigarette lighter chargers.

There is a black disc but I do not see any instructions for using it.Does it mount on the windshield?


my Magellen came with a black disk with adhesive on 1 side. Intended to be adhered to any smooth surface (e.g., windshield). The mount for my unit includes a suction cup. So, mount black disk to windshield and attach suction cup to smooth side of black disk. Be sure disk is positioned where suction cup and bracket and GPS will have sufficient room to mount everything.

Low Battery after using it


I had the same exact problem about three years ago when mine was new. I sent it back to Garmin and it took some convincing on my part to get them to replace the mount and cable for the car. The first time I sent it back they only wanted the unit back, not the mount. Same problem when i tried the replacement unit. I called service again and told them that I was sure it was in the cable from the cig. lighter socket and that I was going to send the whole system back. They said ok and when I received it back from Garmin the second time I had anew mount and it has been fine since. By woodtick

Charge


A new 350 in the box should include a USB adapter, car adapter and AC wall charger.

It will charge faster with the car adapter or wall adapter. You can buy these accessories on eBay. Did you get the window mount?

A new 350 includes the window mount & dash mount pad. Again, you can get these off of eBay. Here's a link you can try:
