Give it time to charge then try it... if this does not work hit the reset button with a needle and this should fix the problem you are having

Yes, a Cellphone, Google Maps and a Power Block will give you about 5 days use!

You could also carry a small 12 volt lithium battery of the type used in alarms in a back pack, connected to a cigar lighter like this unit.

Or this

Or you buy a GPS Sat Nave unit specially made for cycles.

No light on vehicle power cable


If this is a cigarette lighter plug, the fuse may be blown. Unscrew the top where it plugs into the cigarette lighter and check the fuse. But, more than likely the fuse in your car for the cigarette lighter is blown. Check the car fuse first.

Garmin went totlly blank during use.is there a


most Garmin's are powered by external sources which charge the device. the device has a battery internally and is kept charged by such a cable connected to the cigarette lighter socket.

If its a built in Garman then most likely its the fuse.

Garmin gps 12 wont turn on.


Sorry to hear of the dead units. Are you using the correct power cable with a small hole in the centre of the plug? The GPS 12 is strictly limited to 7 volts only. The accessory cigarette lighter cable for this model has a circuit inside to drop the voltage from 12 to 7. Cannot be fixed. There would have been a plastic peg in the back of the GPS socket to prevent anything but the correct voltage Garmin cable being plugged in. Unfortunately these pegs are easily broken off. Yes, they are a good little unit even though well on in years. The next model up - the 12XL - can accept a wide voltage range and does not have the plastic peg.

All the best, Tony at KiwiGPS.

If it does not show 'charging' when connected to power, then something may be wrong with the power cord. If it is the vehicle cord (the one with the cigarette lighter plug) check the fuse in the tip of the cord.

Garmin c340 went black and can't get it working


The battery was completely dead. I must not have had the cord plugged in to my lighter, or maybe it wasn't sitting properly on the cradle, and it was running on battery power. I found that when I charged it by the computer, it was ok. It is working with no problems, now.
