Check if you are able to charge other devices via the cigarette lighter such as a cellphone or try to use the lighter if the light does not get as hot as normal then that means that there is not enough power. If that looks ok then try another cable charger for your Nuvi

I've borrowed a friend's Garmin for a trip and when I use the car charger, it doesn't display anything. Once I disconnect, it becomes visible again. I'm going on a long trip and worry. ...


Assuming there is power at the cigarette lighter jack - turn the Nuvi off - then connect the charger. It should display charging battery or charging complete.
If nothing - does it charge with the wall charger? If so check the fuse in the car charger - it's usually in the tip of the charger which can be turned to get the fuse out.

Buy a adapter for your cigarette lighter socket that has multiple sockets with one that will fit the Garmin adapter.

How can I recharge the battery on my Garmin Nuvi?


Just use your USB cable that came with it to connect it to your computer. It will charge just fine. You can also use a cell phone charger that has a USB connector. A lot of cell phones use this type of charger now and the charge will work fine with the GPS>

Garmin nuvi does turn on when connected to power in car


Hi

I had the same problem. My Nuvi 350 did not power up for a couple of days. I suspected moisture to be the culprit. So I took my wife's hair dryer and blew hot air(in the intermediate setting) into the SD card slot in the GPS for a couple of minutes. Take care not to overheat the GPS or Screen.
Pronto my GPS powered up without any issues.
Hope this helps

Yes be sure your battery is full charge, go on the GARMIN web site and do an update.

Install the web updater from GARMIN.

If you have a battery low its normal. You did not mentionned into your comments that you had try a charge. I can not assume but i hope you did.

No problem with the battery was reported from GARMIN at this time. Everything is reporting fine by many others users.
