Page 44 of the Garmin 750 owners manual says there are three ways to charge:
auto power cord (which you have)
usb
optional ac power cable

You might get more/better answers if you post this ??? under the 750 product heading rather than i3.

My garmin 780 doesn't operate with the car charger plugged in. goes to a scenery photo that has a small picture of it plugged in to a computer at the bottom of the screen, and does not load. is that...


hi danielktx, its doing that because it thinks the charger is the USB cable and connected to the computer...either you have the wrong charger (is it factory or after market) or the charger it self is faulty.

My Garmin nuvi 265 was working fine until 2 weeks ago. We got a screen message saying that the XM traffic was not supported, and then noticed that the unit no longer could be charged using the car...


The traffic receiver is in the car charger cable. The charger should have a red light on if it is getting power. If the light is on and the unit is not charging and you have no traffic, the charger cable is bad. If the light is off, then either the fuse did not fix the problem, blew again, or is somehow not sitting properly in the charger. Another thing you can check is by using the unit in another vehicle. If it works fine there, then the charger is not making good contact with your vehicle outlet for some reason. You will probably have to buy a new traffic receiver charging cable.

Just purchased a Garmin 255W. Works fine if not attached to the car charger. Attached unit to the charge and normal navigation screen disappears. Shouldn't a person be able to drive/navigate and charge...


Hi sudavis70,

yes, you should be able to use your 255w while driving...if its going to the garmin screen ( or the screen with the computer icon) when plugged in to the car charger, then the car charger is probably either bad or not compatible with your unit..if its the original charger, i would buy another one thats made for a garmin.

the only time you shouldn't be able to use your 255w, is when its hooked to your computer.



i fix these and many other gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.



let me know if you need more help or info

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.

The charger/traffic receiver glows green but it does not charge the unit. How can i test whether the fault is a, the charger, b the cradle or c, the unit


hi,

1st of all let me say im on my 3 cradle now for my 760 because the connection inside the cradle where it mounts to the board is pretty poor.

since you said the traffic/charger has the green light lite, that means the charging part of it is working.

you can verify if its the cradle or the connection on the bottom of the gps where the cradle mounts by using the usb cable supplied with your garmin.

plug it in for a while, then check the battery meter after you unplug it..if its charging, the meter would have risen beyond what it was before you tried to charge it. the same can be done with a regular garmin charger (the one that uses the usb connection for the car charger to charge it)

Garmin Stopped working altogether


Try connecting the GPS to your computer with the included USB cable. If it charges this way then you can assume that the Charger is defective.

Garmin will fix or replace a defective GPS within the first year. Go to http://www.garmin.com then click on the support tab. You can follow the menu selections to obtain warranty support.

Charge garmin 750


My 760 was like this, I think I'd let the battery run totally flat. I was able to get it to power up, then charge, using a mains charger, thankfully I'd bought one, they aren't included as standard.

How do i charge my garmin 750


Plug the charger into the mini-usb jack. The unit should turn on and when you come to the main menu, you should see a lightning bolt over the battery bar graph. This indicates that it is charging. If you don't plan on using it and want to charge it over night, if your Nuvi has a push down power switch on the top, press and hold it briefly until it goes to a black screen and says charging. If your Nuvi has a slide switch, slide it to the left until you get the same charging screen. A few seconds later, the screen will go dark but if you touch the screen, it will light up again and say its charging and go dark again. After several hours, when you go to touch the screen it will say Charging Complete". Yiu will also notice then when you go to use it, you will see ALL of the green bars on the battery bar graph will be lit.

Garmin car charger


There are thee ways to charge the Garmin 750, 1: thru a car cord that plugs into the base that your unit mounts on. 2. Thru an AC charger. 3: thru the USB port on the Garmin unit itself. In your case the car cord plugs into the base that mounts your unit to the window. If that is not working, check that you are getting power from your car receptical. Check by plugging your Phone in or buying an adapter at Radio Shack that checks it. Also check the plug that goes into your car recepticle. Your manual tells how to check the fuse that is located in the end of the plug. If neither of these work your mount connection is bad. Hope this helps
