My name isXXXXX to
I would like to help resolve the problem for you
Could I check which Model of Nuvi you have please ? ie: C330, 200W
I think it could be your fuse that is in the Ciggy lighter connection, check the fuse is good, if the fuse is good, check your ciggy burner works in the car too, it could be the car's fuse too.
Also press the reset behind the Antenna, this may be a glitch and just needs a reset,
Let me know if the fuse is ok, to further assist, if needed.
All the best
i think I replied. did you get?
cig lighter is fine. it charges my cell
unit powers down even when charged. I know b/c I get to the screen showing half the battery charged. it will even go to the "acquiring sat." page, then it shuts off.
Sounds like you have a battery problem, as it is not holding a charge, or performing how it should.
How old is it please ?
got if for xmas in dec 2007
They are known for the batteries going after 2/3 years, but it is usually the street pilots, not this model,
Your only option is to have the battery swapped out, before you change the battery, try to let it totally drain of power first, then see how it is, when charged again,
or factory restore it,
hold your finger on the lower right corner of the screen, while turning it on, the keep pressing the lower corner, till the message clear all data appears, this will erase all data, you will have to re-register it and re-update it after this,
This may cure it for you,
if not let the battery drain, try again, if no success then, it will need the battery replacing inside it, Garmin will do this for you
If you have any question's please ask.
Hope this helps
