    That's because you're using a usb cable that normally connects to the PC and so the unit is going to Mass Storage Mode. It's all to do with the pin outs in the cable. Just get a genuine charger, they're cheap on eBay.

    As usual Garmin has its own way of doing it
    A 17.3 kohm resistor decides in what mode the gps should be.

    However it needs some tampering with the soldering iron...

    Manufacturer of USB cable do not have obligation to specify type of such cables. Only one way it is immediately try cable after shopping and return if it not work properly and it have all justification with trade law. I always do it by this way!
    P.S. The most cheapest way is go to big hotel and there get bundle of unremembered USB charger. Try its and choose a working specimen. 2 dollars for it is normally price. If you be lucky this problem get off with good smile and words only...

    Have you tried to wait a while. ?
    1xxx will usually reboot and go into Navigation mode if computer data is not present.
