    Nuvi 1300 Power alternative


    I was playing around, and found a way to power my Nuvi 1300, and allow navigation from a standard USB cable.
    When you connect the cable, the unit goes into Mass Storage mode, as though it is connected to a computer.
    However, if there is no USB data, the unit will reboot itself into navigation mode.

    This works for me, if the USB cable is plugged into a 'dumb' power source.

    I used travel ac adapter that came with my samsung digital camera

    I've found that if you just use "Safely Remove Hardware" and eject the Garmin device, the Garmin will reboot and just charge or go into navigation mode and charge.
