I have a navigon GPS and it won't work plugging into cigarette lighter in car


Make sure your cigarette lighter works, try a different car. If it still doesn't work , your gps plug in ( charger ) needs to be replaced.

Low battery


You need to plug it into to the cigarette lighter or your pc. I take mine in the house and connect it to the pc to charge, but it will charge with the cigarett lighter too.

I bought at Garmin Nuvi 1300 GPS for my daughter for Christmas. She just tried to use it for the first time yesterday and it doesn't fit the cigarette lighter. What can we do now???


It's strange if the plug doesn't fit the cigarette lighter socket. They can be a tight fit so if you find it a little big for the socket try putting pressure on it to push it in. If it absolutely won't fit you can buy cigarette lighter plugs in car accessory shops. If you can get one that does fit you can cut the one that's on the lead off and fit the new one.

If you cannot get any plug to fit you can get the lead wired permanently into the car. Any garage would be able to do it for you.

I have garmin gps it not chargeing my car onl by computer whe?


It's most likely that the fuse in the charger has blown. The fuse is located in the plug that goes into the cigarette lighter socket. On the end of the plug there's a ring. Unscrew the ring and it comes apart. Be careful not to lose any parts when you open it. You'll see the fuse which needs to be replaced. If this does not solve the problem it's possible that the cigarette lighter is faulty.

My cigarette lighter will not charge my TomTom


The plugs which are used with car lighters are often very poor; compare the firmness of the seating of the lighter with your accessory plug. The latter are often too loose to make decent contact.
Also, that plug is equipped with a fuse; unscrew the plug body and check the fuse.
I also recall someone having a failed plug on the Tomtom itself; it may be a weak point.

Unit (tom tom 1xl) turning off


One hour is about the time the unit will run without a power source.

You need to check that the cigarette lighter is working. Check the car fuse.

Check the fuse (one of the six bumps) on the cigarette lighter plug has not blown.

Is the cigarette lighter / Tom Tom lead damaged in any way?
