The best way to charge a GPS in the house is with a high power USB charger and not with your PC. Your PC provides very little power through its USB commect.

That said, one hour on battery power is normal. If you are getting an hour of power from PC charging, then the problem is definitely the GPS charging cable.

SOURCE: No Product Key to complete Garmin c330 update download

If you purchased the DVD Update version, the Product Key that they are requesting is on a label on the back of the DVD case that contains the update DVD.
If you downloaded the update they were supposed to e-mail you the Product Key.

SOURCE: SISTEM SOFTWARE MISSING on my Garmin NUVI200 GPS

All Garmin users,

There is no easy solution for this except to return your unit to the nearest Garmin outlet. You need to have very special equipment called an E-Prom burner or writer which only Garmin have. With this equipment they re-programmed (restore) the operating system back on your specific Garmin unit and model.

The problem why anybody can't do it is because there is no way you can access your Garmin unit from a pc or mac if the operating system is lost or damage on your Garmin, for the simple reason your pc or mac can't reconize the device that is pluged in, because there are no communication platform between the two devices.

As simple as that, life with it or send your Garmin gps to an autherized professional Garmin dealer.

SOURCE: NAVMAN S70 S Series -

Some chargers will 'fool' the satnav into thinking they're connected to a pc, my S90 was just the same. I bought a car charger on eBay that said in the description "These are purpose designed car chargers so that you can also continue to use your devise whist charging it will not go in to PC sync mode." I bought one of these and it now lets me use the satnav and charge at the same time, whereas my other car charger wouldn't let me.

My garmin nuvi 215 will not power on - every so often the garmin logo is displayed but it wont go any further - any idea how I can fix it?


Hello,

Try performing a soft reset on the unit.
Resetting Your nüvi
If your unit stops responding, turn off the unit, and then turn it back on. If this does not help, perform a reset using the reset button on the bottom of the unit.
Caution: Do not reset your nüvi with a ballpoint pen or other sharp object, which can damage your unit.
1. Disconnect the nüvi from external power.
2. Press the Reset button on the bottom of the nüvi.
3. Connect the nüvi to a power source.

A hard reset can also be done but will erase all the user data.
This is done by with the unit off and pressing and holding the bottom right hand corner of the screen while turning the unit on.

You could also try running the Garmin WebUpdater.
Download and Install WebUpdater.

Those were pretty good instructions that Garmin gave you.

If you have your owner's manual, refer to how to get into your settings. If you don't have the owner's manual, you will have to google it. Unfortunately, you did not provide the model number, otherwise, I would have provided the link to it.
