Garmin nuvi 12 volt power cord

The power cord goes on and off. Any slight jar and the red light indicating power is on goes off. I have replaced the fuse (1A fast acting) and still the same result. I've only used the unit once. Is it possible that the cord from the power connection is broken somehow?

Could be the cord or your car plug. Does it fit snug? I have a 1996 Acura TL and the way the cigarette lighter is designed, I have to give it a bit of pressure so it makes good contact. try your unit in another vehicle and see if that solves the problem. If so, it's your car's cigarette lighter connection.

Is it possible the connector is damaged either inside the cigarette light or on the charger itself? I would recommend trying a different charger and check to make sure the charger doesn't draw too much energy which could blow your fuse.

The problem is with the socket at the back of the satnav where you plug in the mini USB plug of the power cord. As the socket wears it feels as if the plug is in fully when it's not. Push the plug in further and the problem should be solved.

You know, they sometimes have issues with their 12 volt power adapters. You may want to contact Garmin about getting a replacement cord. That was the issue with my wife's Garmin Nuvi 200.

My nuvi 670 froze nothing work impossible to reset


Can you connect it to your computer? Does it come up when you do? If so, and if it behaves normally then the issue is with the power cord/ 12 volt adapter cord you use in your car.
Replace the power cord.

Maps won't load. Screen says "Loading Maps" when turning it on, but it never loads.


You may have one of two issues. One, the power cord, 12 volt adapter cord may be broken and needs replacement. A defective cord will cause erratic behavior in the Garmin GPSs. You can get one from Garmin.com
Or... your software may have become corrupted (for whatever reason) and needs to be updated/reinstalled. To do that, you may go here: http://www8.garmin.com/support/download.jsp

I have checked around but can't find anything smaller than 12 volt booster pack, the type used for boosting car batteries. They have a cigarette lighter outlet. They are quite heavy to carry around after a while but they can come in handy depending on the circumstances.

Check power at the 12volt outlet to insure that you power is on at the connection. Try using a 12 volt convertor in the house to check the cord used in the vehicle.

The end of my 12 volt power supply cord was lost.


You might be able to use the parts from an old cell phone adaptor. Have you tried that?
If not don't mess with any off brand adaptor. Get another one from Garmin at their website Garmin .com
