Question about Tomtom GO 910 GPS Receiver

Will not charge in car

Hi,
Replaced the mount kit and the 12v car charger as these items where stolen from my car, these are genuine parts. I was charging the unit in the house in a 240v charger with no problems when I plug into the 12v in the car the green light is on but it will not charge up. If I fully charge the unit on a 240v then plug into the car it only lasts between 6 – 8 hours then is flat and will not turn on. I have tried different cars with the same effects. Could this be a problem with the unit or the new charger? I know you would need the unit to test it properly so where are you based and how do I send it with the charger etc.

My garmin zumo 550 will not chage from 12 volts either from car charger or motorcycle but it will charge with the 110v power plug


If the unit uses the same port for charging either 12v or 110v and it works with the 110v then I'd say look at the 12v charger unit itself. If you're using the same unit (12v) in the car and the bike, more than likely the fuse is blown in the 12v charger or is just went bad.

We have bought a battery charger HB 1206S DC6V - 12V 6AMP, but it does not state what is the state of charge do the lightes go out when it has reached changed state or light up please help


Product Detail Model No.: HB-1206S
The item is used for charging 6V-12V lead-acid batteries
Max Charging Current: 6A
AC Power Input: 64W
Output: 6/12V DC 3. 52A
Batteries Capacities: 15AHR-80AHR
Unit Packing: Colorful box
Dimension: 18cm x 10cm x 20cm
G. W. / N. W.: 1. 85KG/1. 75KG
Certifications: GS, CE, BS, ROHS, SAA

Main functions:
(1) The HB-1206S battery charger has the features of convenient operations, reliable safety and high performance.
(2) During charging, if turn up overload, the battery charger will keep itself at normal current and normal voltage with its self-automatic protecting function.
(3) If being short circuit, the battery charger will switch off itself, and turn normal after one or two minutes.
(4) The output current of the battery charger is very stationary, so it can protect the battery charger very well. It only costs 3 or 4 hours to fully charge the batteries.
(5) Indication of charging: the battery charger has 6 pilot lamps. The more pilot lamps shining, the less electric quantity is. The charging process finishes when all the pilot lamps go out.
(6) The battery charger can be switched between 6V and 12V, so it can charge for 6V and 12V accumulators. You can select 6V or 12V according to your own needs.
(7)The operations are very convenient: Put the red clip to the positive pole of the accumulator which indicated "+", and put the black clip to the negative pole of the accumulator which indicated "-", then plug in power source, the accumulator will be charged.

Garmin Nuvi 750 car cradle/charger does not charge the unit. USB charger works, so not the battery. Replaced the cigarette lighter jack and still does not work. Problem must be in the dash mount cradle...


Hi tbrick

if you dont have the original charger, the 750 take a special car charger because of the traffic feature...it has a flat end about 3/4" to 1" long that fits in the cradle, but you can use a garmin usb charger, you just wont be able to use the traffic feature.

if thats a little confusing ( i tend to do that) i try and explain it another way.

if you think you need or want one of those chargers, just post back to me.

My garmin nuvi 260 will not take a charge


garmin navs are famous for there chargers burning out. first check the fuse at the end of the 12v car charger by unscrewing the tip of.if its blown replace it. if its not blown then the charger has burned out there are after market chargers but only garmin chargers will work!! as garmin use a sensor to detect the correct type of charger is connected so be sure to buy a genuine garmin 12v charger


best of luck

660 nuvi charges fine with AC charger, but not with 12v car charg


The real question is this:

1. When you plug the Nuvi onto the cradle, do you see a yellow lightning bolt appear over the battery icon at the main menu?

Compare it with the AC charger. If you don't see the lightning bolt, then you either have (2) problems:

1. There is a problem with the car charger not feeding power to the Nuvi.
2. There is a problem with the rear cradle socket on the Nuvi.

I have fixed both problems before. More info can be found here:

Where to get in car charger for evesham 7211


Hi.
I just bought an in-car charger for the 7211 on ebay.
It is 5v with a 2amp flow.
It's not for the mini-USB port on the side but for the dc input hole on the other side.
I've just plugged it into my laptop via the mini-USB port to see if it will charge that way but it doesn't seem to be doing.
Hope this helps.

Power specifications need in car charger / lead


The device must be charged with 5v and 2A.
As long as the generic charger suplies those values,
you should be fine...
