Yes, it is normal. This is the data mode, where you now have access to the unit's internal flash drive. You can update your units map and firmware by registering your unit with Garmin on their website www.garmin.com.
I have a similar nuvi model and this happened to me. I contacted Garmin who said that I need to update the software on my model. Plug your nuvi into a pc. Hopefully the pc will recognise the device and it will launch some Garmin web page. From there, read the instructions on the page and see if you can update the software.
If there is no response from the device when plugged in, visit Garmin's website and find your device. There should be an option to update software. Try it this way. Hopefully this sorts the problem.
I leave mine in the car a lot and in freezing conditions and while it does drain the battery a bit, I don't have the problem you are having. Good luck.
Sometimes this problem is caused by the charger plug not going far enough into the mini usb socket of the satnav. It feels as if it's fully in but it's not. Pushing it in further usually solves the problem. As your charger is not a garmin make there's no guarantee but there should be very little difference so it's worth a try.
Most likely the fuse in the charger plug has blown. The plug that goes into the cigarette lighter socket has a ring near the end. On most chargers it's silver but some of them are black. If you unscrew this ring the plug comes apart. Be careful not to lose any parts. You'll see the fuse in there. Replace it and it should be ok. The other possibility is that the cigarette lighter socket is not working. You can check that easily enough by trying something else in it.
I had the same problem. When you have your nuvi plugged into your cigarette lighter it doesn't charge. Your battery is probaly near dead. I called Garmin and they told me to plug it into my computer via the usb cable. Turn the Garmin off and let it charge for several hours. That did the trick
folks, the garmins have an on-board battery that needs to be powered up (at least occasionally) via the usb port - like from your computer. just using the dc car power cord does nothing for this battery. i've had this exact same problem on both my 760 and 780 nuvi units. fixed it using the usb charge. seems to run down differently for all the various nuvi models. my regular charge will hold for 7 hours on my old 660, my 760 and 780 work about 5 hours. my 'power up' failed on the 660 after 10 months with no internal battery charge, but the 7xx models only took about 5-6 months to 'fail.' hope this helps. jack b :-) in midland, tx usa
