The problem is with the audio circuitry of the unit. If it is still under warranty, then have Garmin replace it again.

Turn on your Nuvi, go to Tools in the next screen you should see Bluetooth..... go to Connections and Add Device

The Garmin Chargers use a 1A 5x20mm glass fuse in the tip.

The DC output of the charger is +5VDC @ 1A. The 1A rating is the max rating and your Nuvi should draw less than 1A under normal conditions.

You would not want to put a 3A in there because if there is a short in the Nuvi, you want the fuse to blow quickly. A 3A fuse is too high in value.

Re-install both the maps and main software through Garmin Express and your PC. Probably more than once or twice before it "takes".

Most likely a defective LCD display. If the unit was dropped, the LCD ribbon cable might have pulled slightly out of the connector on the PCB board.

Plug your nuvi into your PC. Go to the Garmin.com website and log into your account to see your map information. You can go to your account and see the map downloads and reinstall it from there. Or you can download their software "Garmin Express" on your PC. Run the software while your Garmin is plugged into your PC and it will check for any updates for you.

Go to WWW.GARMIN.COM to download the latest software. You will need a USB cable and a suitable connector for your Garmin. That should resolve your problem. Also check to see if you are eligible for a FREE download of the maps.
