Question about Garmin Nuvi 760 Car GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Just bought a Garmin Nuvi 1240 and it says charge for 4 hours before using. I can only see that it has a car charger so does that mean I have to leave it in the car for 4 hours charging? Or have I got to drive it around for 4 hours? I don't want to have to leave it in the car unattended!

You can either charge it in the car for 4 hours connected to the cigarette lighter socket or you can connect it to your computer with the mini USB lead for 8 hours to charge it. There is also a mains charger which has to be bought seperately which takes 4 hours to charge it.

No battery status in the screen of Garmin 255. I just bought a new Garmin 255, before charging, it can not on, meaning, the battrey is empty, that is fine. Pluging the car charger, the unit can turn...


The battery status only shows up when the satnav is disconnected from the charger. Your first charge should be a continuous charge until the battery is full. This can be done by connecting it to your computer for 8 hours approximately or 4 hours to your car cigarette lighter socket or 4 hours to an, optional extra, mains charger.

How to charge battery


There are 3 ways to charge the battery in your garmin nuvi satnav.

I was given a Garmin Nuvi 1350 for my birthday about nine months ago ...I still haven't used it. I think my husband forgot to pick up an instruction book. Is it possible to email me one, and also list...


There's a manual available in adobe reader format at http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/3130_OwnersManual.pdf
There should have been a car charger with the satnav. It has a plug that goes in the cigarette lighter socket of the car on one end and the other end has a mini USB plug that goes in the back of the satnav. Charging with this charger takes about 4 hours though it can be charged while using the satnav. For the first charge you should leave it on until it's fully charged.

There should also be a mini USB lead with the satnav that can be used to connect it to a computer. Connecting it to a computer also charges it though this method takes about 8 hours.

Mains chargers can be bought seperately from shops which sell garmin satnavs.
