Question about Garmin GPS
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.

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.

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.
