Using the AC adapter with a Garmin Sat Nav

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

Your Garmin'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 Dash Cam

A constant power supply is required when transferring video files from your Garmin Dash Cam and your connected smartphone via WiFi. In your vehicle you can do this when your Garmin Dash Cam has a constant power supply e.g. your vehicles ignition is switched on or the Garmin Dash Cam is powered via the Garmin Dash Cam Parking Mode Cable and your car, van, truck, etc vehicle battery. When taking your Garmin Dash Cam into your home or office you only have the limited internal battery life (approx. 30minutes) to transfer video files from your Garmin Dash Cam to your connected smartphone. That's where the Garmin AC Adapter and USB Cable Kit comes in. It can supply your Garmin Dash Cam with constant power while you transfer your dash cam footage to your Garmin Dash Cam.

Using the AC adapter with a Garmin Outdoor Device

Depending upon model the AC power cable may not charge 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. It will however charge the Garmin NiMH Battery Pack, which is suitable for use with the Garmin GPSMAP 64/65/66 and Garmin Oregon 600/700 series models. In addition, models such as the Garmin Montana 600 series, Garmin Montana 700 series and Garmin Edge 800 series which all use a lithium-ion battery can be charged using the AC adaptor cable.

Micro or mini 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.

The Garmin AC adapter and USB cable kit available to buy on this webpage includes both mini and micro USB cables, and is therefore compatable with most Garmin devices.

Garmin USB AC Adapter Questions and Answers

Question: Please advise if this kit would allow me to use the USB to USB Mini cable from a 12V/USB connector which plugs in to the cigarette lighter socket in my car, to charge my device. I have tried a standard USB to USB Mini cable and my Sat Nav thinks it is connected to a computer.

Answer: The Garmin mini USB cable is for this AC adaptor and can also be used for PC use. Your Garmin device should be charged using the correct Garmin vehicle power cable. We cannot recommend using the mini USB cable with a third party adaptor in your car. One factor to consider is that your Garmin will most likely require a 5 volt input at a certain current - which the correct Garmin charger will provide. Your car adaptor will output 12 volt which, via a third party adaptor, could damage your Garmin. A USB outlet in your car may provide insufficient power for your Garmin, hence the unit 'thinks' it is only connected to a PC.
