I'm a shuttle bus driver who had a cheap binnatone gps but upgraded to a garmin nuvi 1490t. I expected your unit to have bus lanes,taxi lanes, and airport[domestic] perth, western australia bus lanes. binnatone has, you don't.rendezvous hotel, scarborough 200 the esplanade, has been there 25 years, its entrance has always been on the west coast hwy.,your gps tries to take you to the esplanade at the back of the hotel, Binnatone takes you to the front. many times your gps tries to take you the long way not the shortest.
Excellent to see, easy to program, very accurate,

Funny you should ask this question! Yesterday I purchased a new car charger. I kept my gps down near the dashboard , the cable near the gps was always getting bent. One of the small wires in the cable got broken and it no longer charged my gps. This is probably what happened to your's. I might attempt to solder the wire on the u/s adapter and see if it will work. A plain adapter is about $29 or a garmin with fm road update ability will cost you $39 dollars. Bring your gps into a shop that sells them ex. Dick Smiths or Archie Martins, they will put your gps on a car charger to let you know if it works. Suggest you keep your gps up higher so the plug going into your gps doesn't get bent.
Hope this helps.......born2fish

It should be charging while you're using it in your car. Ensure your 12 volt plug in point has power to it. When you are trying to charge it from your PC, try using a different power cord to charge it with.
