Garmin Mini USB AC Adapter - £14.99

Garmin Mini USB AC Adapter Cable

Power, charge and plan your routes on your Garmin in the comfort of your home, hotel or place of work with this genuine Garmin AC mains adaptor with mini USB connection.

What's more the mains charger supports 100volt to 240volt and includes three international socket adapters. So if you happen to be abroad you can still power your Garmin sat nav or GPS device from your hotel or other accommodation. The three adapters included are: UK, European and North American.

Using the AC adapter with a Garmin sat nav

When connected to any Garmin nuvi sat nav, the AC adapter cable will recharge your units internal battery, enabling you to use your sat nav wirelessly in your vehicle.

Your nuvi's screen also indicates how much charge the internal battery has left. To increase the accuracy of this indicator, Garmin recommend that you fully discharge the battery and then fully charge it. They also suggest not unplugging your nuvi model until it is fully charged.

Using the AC adapter with a Garmin outdoor device

Depending upon model the AC power cable may not recharge your Garmin handheld or cycling GPS's internal battery. This is down to the batteries the unit uses. For example the AC adapter will not charge normal non rechargeable AA or AAA alkaline batteries.

Instead you can use it to power your unit indoors and plan routes, view tracked logs, etc and all without draining the battery.

Models such as the Garmin Montana 600 series and Edge 800 series, which both use a lithium-ion battery, can be charged using the AC adaptor cable.

Mini or micro USB power cable

Most Garmin devices require the mini USB cable connector, as pictured on the right in the photo. However a handful of Garmin systems require the micro USB connector pictured on the left in the photo.

Before buying we recommend that you check which AC adapter USB cable connector your Garmin device uses. If you look closely on the underneath, back or side of your Garmin unit you will find the port which the mini or micro USB cable plugs into.

A full list of compatible systems that use the mini USB AC adapter cable is available further down this webpage.

In addition we also sell an AC adapter which includes both the mini and micro USB cables in the box. Buying this alternate AC adapter covers all types of USB connectors so you can't go wrong.

What's more the AC Adapter with both mini and micro USB cables detaches from the mains AC adaptor, enabling you to use either of the USB cables to update and transfer data to/from your Garmin system and your PC. To view the AC adapter with both mini and micro USB cables click here.
