Hello. I see you requested the live phone call. I can answer your question without the call to save you some money. If you prefer we can definitely have the call. It is up to you. It sounds as if your Nuvi battery is extremely low. This will cause the screen to go black when plugged into your cigarette lighter. Please plug the Nuvi into your computer and charge via USB cable for a few hours. That will allow the battery to charge to an acceptable point and then you can plug it in to the cigarette lighter in the car. Please let me know if this helps.

Hello. I am just following up to see if you charged the Nuvi on the computer and if this worked. Please let me know if you still want a phone call or need any further assistance.
