Garmin Nuvi 320 charging from cigarette lighter


Standard Member
On this subject, I have a Garmin Nuvi
In my car, it charges on the mount, which is cabled into the ignition/battery

I took my Nuvi on the road and plugged it into the cigarette lighter of a number of different cars using a cigarette to usb adapter with a usb to mini usb cable.

It flipped immediately to pc charge mode - so i couldnt see the screen until i removed the cable. it was charging tho....

so i had to let it charge for 30 mins or so... before i could use it again.

frustrating if it cuts out just when you need it most..

does anyone have any ideas why this would charge from my mount....and not behave in a similar way when i connected it in via the cigarette to usb adapter?

thanks in advance
