I don't know whether you are a tech savvy or not but if my believe is that you are.I would suggest you open it replace the battery and if it don't work out you check the power system of that device.

I had to buy a new in car charger for my navman s30,but when i plug it in to the sat nav & cigerette socket it keeps showing a computer,usb & navman picture.

  • Turn the Navman off by holding the power button in the upper left corner of the device until the screen goes blank.
  • Plug the unit into its charger using the USB port on the bottom of the unit. The battery indicator light next to the power switch should turn orange, indicating that the device is charging. Once the light has turned green the charge is complete. If the light does not turn on, verify that the car charger is plugged into a working outlet.

When i turn on the GPS it is just stuck on the garmin screen and does nothing else.

Here is just a suggestion , try this and let me know if worked. It needs to be rebooted. Turn off, by holding off button down. Then once it is completely off, then turn it on, BUT when you go to turn it on, keep on button depressed, all the way until it turns on and then some for about 15 seconds, now you just rebooted system. Let me know, mike

I lost my adaptor plug charges, so how?

This is not a complex problem, to find an acceptable charger for your machine all you need is some basic information about the device. First you will need to know the voltage and current requirements of the device. This should be posted usually as a sticker on the bottom of the device near where it would be plugged in, it should say something like 5 VDC 400mA this stands for 5 volts of DC voltage, and 400 mili amperes of current. Next you should take your device to a Radio Shack store they have lots of adapt-a-plug chargers with many voltages and currents and many tips to connect to them. All you need to do is find a correct tip to fit into your device, they have at the store an index where you can try different ones in your device. Once you have found a match you will need to locate either a home charger or a car charger with the EXACT voltage level as indicated on your device. I.E. if your device says 5vdc you need a charger that says 5VDC. Once you locate an acceptable charger check to see that the current rating is greater than or equal to what your device says. Most people think that a higher current rating on the charger will burn up the device, this is not true. The device only draws as much current as is necessary(trust me I am an electrical engineering student). Next the assembly of your charger is as simple as plugging the plug into the charger, there will be instructions on the box. The whole rig is usually less than 20 bucks, so its not too bad.

Will not charge battrey

If your device will not charge your battery, then it means there is a problem somewhere that needs to be fixed. You need to run a check on the battery, the charger and the device.

Test the charger by trying to use it on another device, once you plug it in, the device power light should come on. That way you should know that your charger is working perfectly fine. But if it does not charge, then you know the problem is from the charger, and all you should do is to replace it with a new charger.

Test the battery on another device. Once you insert the battery into your device, then you plug it for about 2 hours, then power it on, if it does not power on, then you know that the problem is from the battery, it is weak and cannot hold charge. Then you borrow a well charged battery and insert it in your phone and power it on to see if it will power on. If it powers it on, then what you should do is to replace your old battery.

Then you test your gps device by plugging it on a PC to see if it powers on, if it does, then it means the device is working fine, but if it does not, then it means there is a problem with the connection port or something is wrong with the device.

After carrying out these tests, you should be able to detect where the problem is from and how to solve the problem.

Hope this information helped.

Garmin 765t can charge garmin with usb port, however, once garmin is connected to vehicle outlet, garmin will not charge and looses full charge within 30 minutes. fuse is good in vehicle, and works on...

It's most likely that the fuse in the plug of the charger lead has blown. There's a ring at the top of the charger plug. Unscrew this and the plug comes apart. You'll see the fuse inside. Be careful not to lose any parts.
