When it's plugged into the cigarette lighter socket it should work. Sometimes the reason it won't is because the mini USB plug of the charger is not pushed fully into the satnav and it goes into mass storage mode showing a picture of a satnav connected to a computer. The plug appears to be fully pushed in but it's not. Pushing it in further usually solves the problem.

I hope this solves your problem and that you find that garmin satnavs aren't so bad after all.

I just got my garmin... plugged in to charge... it was working... turned it on.... said it was downloading maps... then 20 seconds later.... blank screen, and it will not come on any more??


Probably your device was NOT FULLY CHARGED. It happens sometimes, when you try to download something, to be out of resources because of the operation.
Try this case to connect it again to recharge it and do a HARD RESET of the device. And keep it plugged over night - just to make sure in the morning it will be fully charged.

This is because the socket in the back of the satnav is worn and prevents the mini USB plug being pushed in fully. Push it in further and it will be ok.

GARMIN FULLY CHARGED AND SWITCHED ON AND WORKING GOES OFF AFTER 30 MINUTES IS BATTERY DUD?


If the battery is approaching 2 years old and your only getting only 30 minutes of use, it could very well be that your unit needs a new battery. Please see this link:

Nuvi is dead, it will not turn on, even when plugged in.


The battery may be fully discharged. Once the battery has fallen belowa certain level, it will not be possible to recharge via the caradapter. Instead, the GPS should be connected via USB cable to acomputer for 8 or more hours to charge the battery. Disregard anymissing driver messages, as the computer will provide the voltagerequired to charge (regardless of drivers present or not).

Oncecharged, the car charger should be able to keep the battery charged -unless allowed to become fully discharged again. Repeat USB charging asneeded.

Is it normal for my Garmin Nuvi 756T battery to go flat after only 30 minutes?


No. You can expect up to 4 hours of use - depending on the battery's state of charge, level of back lighting, use of Bluetooth or playing MP3s - all of which reduce battery life.

Try fully charging the battery overnight via USB cable to a computer. This will fully charge the battery, and afterwards, the car charger should keep the battery fully charged - provided you do not allow it to fully discharge. If it does, the car charger may not be able to charge the battery until it is charged via USB again.

My new nuvi 255w will not start displaying info


When using a usb from your computer it is only a trickle
charge to the garmin. Will take a day or two to fully charge. If you use a the cigarette lighter plug that came WITH the garmin, it will fully charge in 4 hours. Stick with garmin approved plugs and all will go smooth. I know, I made the same error.
