Can't get past the charging screen


Have you tried to "restart" the GPS by pressing the reset key at the back of the GPS ?
Usually, the media files (pictures, videos, music, text) are loaded (copied from your source/PC) to the T-Flash (SDHC) card ... and inserted into the GPS. The GPS device will recognize these files (in their appropriate formats, e.g. music WAV or WMA9 files, movie AVI, WMV, ASF files, eBook TXT files, pictures JPG, GIF, BMP, PNG files) and display the selections in their (respective) interface screens.

I have a computer and i want to know how do you charge it to a computer


If you want to know how to charge your GPS unit using your computer you can do this by simply connecting your GPS to your computer using the USB cord that should have been included with your unit. It will be a black cord with one end that should fit a USB port on your computer, and the other end will attach to the back of your GPS. Turn off your unit, then plug the smaller end into the GPS and the larger end into a USB port on your computer. Your GPS should then come on by itself. Your normal Garmin startup screen will display, and it will also display that it is loading maps. Then a graphic of a computer connected to a GPS will show on the bottom of the screen, and a white line the width of your screen will slowly change to green. The entire time you are connected your GPS will be charging. Depending on how much of your battery needs to be charged, leaving it connected for about an hour and a half should give you a full charge.

Magellan Maestro GPS #MM3225. Screen display this


The unit is now connected to your computer, and you can actually access its filesystem through windows. It is also charging the battery in the unit. I wouldn't want to mess around with the files, though, unless you know absolutely what you are doing. Plus, it's also a good idea to turn the unit off before removing it from the computer.

I have just purchased a sendai universal home charger, when I plug it is my Garmin 200, and the other end into the electrical socket I get a picture on the screen, looks like a computer with a plug running...


The nuvi thinks you've connected it to the USB port of your home computer. It's charging, so pay no attention to the screen.

If you HAD connected it to the USB port, you would also see the nuvi as a storage device attached to your computer. That's how you can download pictures that you can display on your nuvi. It's also the mechanism used when you update your maps and/or software.

When I connect my Garmin Nuvi 200w to my car to charge it does not work. It just receive charge but does not work. If I disconnect it the GPS It work.


Are you using the garmin power cord or are you using an aftermarket cord? Some after market cords have usb plugs that although they plug right in to the power port on the unit, they tell the unit that you are updating the database. The unit displays only a picture of a computer connected to the unit and that's all it will do. Their is a way around this. Simply wait until the unit displays the about photo of the computer attached and then unplug the power cord from the unit. After the screen clears immediately replug in the power chord. This must be done quickly before anything appears on the screen. If you're too slow, simply repeat this step until you manage to replug the unit before anthing appears on the screen. Once plugged in as about the unit will operate normally on the external power source until you either turn it off or unplug it. Simple repeat above when ready to resume use.

I just received my Garmin for XMAS and it was working fine but now it just seemed to not charge. Then the little pic on the front shows the GPS connected to a computer desktop. HELP! Amber Fader


Does it turn on at all? Try to charge it on car adaper then, when it will turn on, try this.

The picture is displayed while it is charging through USB cable and you can't normally use GPS.
Turn the GPS on without the USB plugged in, then press the Battery symbol for about 10 seconds, until the test screen appears. Then plug in the USB.
Screen will tell you percentage of charge, and if it is charging.
***Make sure you press EXIT before unplugging the USB cable. Press EXIT, turn GPS off, then remove the cable is safest way

On the bottom you should see "USB type" if nothing is there, it may be the USB port on your computer. Try it again with a different port

Display is very dark


If the brightness control is turned all the way up and the screen is still dark, then the LCD display is defective. Probably a problem with the backlight.

To turn on, you have to press and hold down the on/off power button until the screen comes on. There is a design flaw with the power switch. Please see this link for details. Too much info and pictures to paste here:
