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

Won,t turn when plugged into car.cigarete lighter has power,fuse is good in garmin unit


Check the cable that plugs into the unit itself. It possibly is damaged and will not acknowledge the GPS. Try replacing the car charger/ac adapter. Check NewPower99.com. they have a lot of inventory and great pricing. Good Lucl!

Trying to charge my Garmin 396 with external power. The unit is showing "Battery Missing". However my battery is there.


I had this problem on an aftermarket battery I purchased last year. It worked well for several months but recently gave me the battery missing warning and would not operate the unit at all. I checked the voltage on my Garmin OEM and on the new one. The Garmin OEM, showed 8.1V on two readings, between the center and right terminals and about that between the two outer terminals. The OEM showed around 5.7 so that implied that it had some bad cells and not a broken wire. I tossed it and bought a new aftermarket unit last week. That one doesn't show a full charge and when I switched back to the Garmin battery it shows 00:00 time remaining, but still 8.1V. Maybe I should have just bought a new Garmin battery!

@yahoo.comgarmin 750 charges through usb port but not through car charger/cradle?


Check the fuse in the charger plug. The plug that goes into the cigarette lighter socket has a ring up near the end of it. To open it you unscrew the ring. You'll find the fuse inside and it probably needs replacing. Otherwise it may be the cigarette lighter that's not providing power.

Can I recharge a garmin nuvi 750 on a computer or must I recharge in car only with clip on


you can use the computer to charge it via the USB, they do make house adapters that plug into the wall, very cheap to buy, and leaving it plugged in when not in use greatly extends the battery life. Go to ebay to get the house charger

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)

My Garmin will not start up.


it sounds like your battery within the GPS Unit is died. You need to charge it somehow. Keep it connected to the car charger for around 30 mins and unit should turn on. Do not keep it on while it is being charged

I'm not sure where I should plug the recharger.


The charger plugs into the mount. You should be able to download the manual in English from the Garmin website.
