Question about Garmin nuvi 200W GPS Receiver
This was your solution
If you are trying to use your unit in the car via the USB port and not the supplied cable, it will not work. You must use the bracket that came with the unit or the specific charger that came with the unit. The pins in the Garmin USB charger only use two pins whereas a regular charge cable uses 4.
Now i have the same problem with my nuvi 260. I am using the charger it came with. when i connect it to the car charger it shows the computer sysmbol and starts charging. there is no other usb port on the device so i am not sure what to do
Based on your description, you are doing it right. You said....
"when i connect it to the car charger it shows the computer sysmbol and starts charging. there is no other usb port on the device"
That is correct. It takes about 2-3 hours to fully charge a low battery.
There is only a mini USB port on a 260.
It's used for charging and downloading updates of software or maps.
