    so usually when I turn my truck on, my gps will turn on(as long as its plugged in) and will cycle normally. Well, tonight i was leaving work and it didnt do anything..Got home tried to reset it manually, but nothing. I've even got it plugged into my computer trying to charge it seeing as thats what the faq's on garmin.com suggested, but nothing works.:rolleyes: Man, I dont want to shell out another $150 for a new gps right now:mad:. I emailed garmin about it, and see if they say anything else I can do, if not I guess its goin in the trash:(

    Does the power cord have a fuse?

    yep, first thing I checked. Acually, my dad has the same one so I just took his and plugged it into my cradle and his powered right up. I changed the cradle AND power cord and plugged it into my gps, but nothing worked. bastids

    Well to update them it is $99..
    It is over 1 year old buying a new fo $150 is not the end of the world....
    It is less then 1 year, you can warranty it...

    Sad part these are not built to last longer then 4 to 5 years.
    Some will and others will not .....

    Heck I still have a working TV that uses tubes., but that will not last for ever..
