Re: Charging Navigator VI
So raised a ticket with Garmin. What they seem to be saying is, using a usb cable with any third party adaptors or computer may not charge the device. This is their reply. Although they haven't answered why my device will charge if it is switched on, but not by just plugging in the cable to a usb charger
Use a Garmin-branded AC power adapter accessory, such as a wall power adapter.
A full charge via a Garmin AC power adapter may take 3 to 4 hours
When you plug the device into an AC charger and push the button to turn it “off”, the device will remain on enough to charge the battery, then fully suspend or turn off
It is recommended that you use the port directly on the device when charging indoors, and not the powered mount that is used when plugging the device into the vehicle power cable
Third-party AC adapters may not be able to charge the device. A Garmin-compatible AC adapter can be purchased from Garmin's online store
See Using Third-Party AC Chargers, Cables, and Other Accessories with Garmin Automotive Devices for more information.
You can buy Garmin chargers off of Amazon. Not sure I want to do that, can just leave it switched on to charge, I just wanted to know if my device is faulty or not.
