My GPS screen says "USB Connected" whenever the


your cord has a short in it. Try to fix it or buy another.
That happened with my Magellan last month when the silver square connector started coming out of the cord. Try pushing it back in, but they do short out there at the connector for some reason

Shuts off


Does it blink a certain amount of blinks pause a second or just blink constantly with no pauses? Let me know it will blink a code if its going into protected shutdown. And it will blink constantly for another reason.

WHEN I PLUG MY TOM TOM 700 INTO THE MAINS OR CAR ADAPTER THE GREEN LIGHT IS ON. WHEN I DISCONNECT THE LIGHT GOES OFF. IT HAS BEEN ON CHARGE OVERNIGHT, BUT IT WILL NOT POWER UP.


If your GPS is more that 18 months old it may be that the battery has died.

They can be replaced and a good source is Ebay.

About 18 month to 2 years is the expected lifespan.

Its an awfully short lifespan in my view but thats how it is I am afraid.

The fact that you get the green light should mean its charging but its pretty clear its not holding that charge.

Sorry for the bad news.

Garmin 260 now failing to charge and shuts itself down


If the unit is only a year old? then I would suspect that the charger has a problem that has damaged your battery. Do you use an external power continuously?

Try a different charger or if you have a meter make sure the charger is putting out close to the specs on it. Try using the usb cable to charge it.

The low battery and shutting off are typical of a battery that won't/can't hold a charge. That is typical after 2-3 years plus but not one year. It can also be indicitive of the charging circuit needing to be reset. The problem is it needs to be started and run long enough for it to recognize the reset command. To do this, hold your finger on the bottom right corner of the screen while powering the unit, until it asks if you want to reset it. That might get you running.

While I would be suprised at the battery going out within a year or so it is not unheard of. You may have to replace the internal battery pack. The unit is new enough your only source is probablly going to be Garmin. They might replace the battery under warrenty or out (if you talk nice).

Why will my GPS not stay on?


Have you fully charged it and is it continuously plugged in and still switching off? The internal battery in not good on GPS units and I always keep mine plugged into my cigar lighter to power it. When I finish a journey I leave it plugged in and charging when I dont need it-if driving locallly etc.

Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Can't find Satellites


Try this and see if it fixes your problem...first disable bluetooth then follow these steps....

1. Power off the unit.

2. HOLD down the power button and you will see "Pre Boot Mode" appear on the lower part of the display. KEEP HOLDING the power button down and the display will flicker, do this until the pre boot mode message disappears. This seems to take a long time (60 seconds at least).

3. Once the pre boot mode message disappears release the power button and your device will perform some activites to recover from the problem.
