From your description I suggest purchasing a new car charger probably a weak component in the charger itself. You can get one at Garmins website at but I think you will find one much cheaper on Ebay.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please leave me some positive feedback.

When you unplug the charger from the satnav it shows a battery indicator on the top right of the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP. If the indicator is fully green the satnav is fully charged.

Charging takes 4 hours approx if you charge it with the car charger or the mains charger. It takes approx 8 hours if you charge it with the USB port of your computer.

I have a garmin nuvi 200. I'm having problems trying to charge the device. I have tried charging it in my car as well as the computer. Once I try charging it a black screen appears that says garmin as...

This is meant to happen when it's connected to your computer but not to your car charger. Sometimes it happens, when connected to a car charger, because the mini USB plug on the charger lead doesn't go in far enough into the satnav. It feels like it's fully in but it's not. If you push it in further it should solve the problem.

It takes 8 hours approx to charge a satnav connected to your computer but only 4 hours approx with the car charger or mains charger.

How to charge battery

There are 3 ways to charge the battery in your garmin nuvi satnav.
  1. Connect it to a computer with the mini USB lead that should have come with it or can be bought in any computer shop. This is the slowest method taking approx 8 hours.
  2. Connect it to your car cigarette lighter with the charger lead which should have come with it. This takes approx 4 hours to charge fully.
  3. Charge with a mains charger. This does not usually come with a satnav but can be bought seperately in shops that sell garmin satnavs. This method also takes approx 4 hours to charge fully.

How to charge a nuvi 1300 GPS

There are 3 ways to charge your Garmin nuvi satnav.
  1. You can use the car charger that should have come with it. Plug the mini USB plug into the satnav and the other end into the cigarette lighter socket of your car. This method takes approx 4 hours.
  2. You can charge it with a mains charger. This doesn't normally come with the satnav but has to be bought separately. Some dealers do throw one in though so it's worth mentioning. This method also takes approx 4 hours
  3. You can charge it with your computer. By connecting it to your computer with the mini USB lead it charges. This method is the slowest taking around 8 hours.

Nuvi 250 will not turn on when charging.

There are two types of leads that you can buy.

The one supplied with the Garmin expects you to plug the GPS into the PC via the USB and if you use this to try and charge your Garmin in your car it will think it is connected to the PC and show the connection screen. it will charge the unit but you can't see the map.!!!

Make sure that you buy a lead specially for the Garmin for use in the car its the only type of SAT NAV that you will have this problem with.

Cant use the garmin 350 while charging

The solution is really easy. Works in the car or usb charger or whatever.
Once you insert the car charger, wait till the pc connection picture comes.
Than unplug the car charger.
Re-insert it as soon as the picture goes off.
Voila. It is ready to use now!
