Garmin Nuvi mini USB jacks

 

I'd post this in the garmin but will ask here. I have a slightly older model, Garmin Nuvi 250W, the wide model. The USB mini jack is busted. Anyone know if they still sell the part? It used to be on ebay all the time but don't see any there. Me and a friend are going to attempt the replacement. Thanks.

NUVI USB jack

Let us know what you find out. My 255 uses the MINI USB as the car power and I don't think it was designed to be constantly unplugged.

Assuming that you're talking about the cord/connector...

The mini-USB is a standard cord, used by many digital cameras also. I've collected so many of those that I don't even remember where I got them from anymore. I just know that they all seem to fit in the back of the 200W.

If that is true, then you may be able to find a cheap alternative if Garmin sells the cord, but at a high price.

Believe me, I've tried that for over a year now and never get a response. Either they're really backed up or don't even bother to reply.

The problem with my USB jack is this, in the back where you connect the cable, there are 5 pins. But those 5 pins are inside a small piece of black plastic thats like a sleeve. That part came out. It keeps the pins straight and allows the USB cable to get a firm connection. Now, the pins are exposed and bent. If you try to connect a cable, it will not work because the cable wiggles inside and the pins won't have a firm connection.

Yes I did

A total of 5 or 6 times. Even tried IM on AIM. Due to hearing impairment, I don't call on phone.

Hi Michael,

He'll have to fill out a quote request form. Different models of Nuvi's take different styles of mini-USB connectors. Some are horizontal, some are vertical, some through-hole mount & some surface mount.

I've done that a few times and never gotten a response. Do they respond by phone or e-mail? I always put my e-mail in and still no response. I see them on AIM/AOL IM but they're busy. I'm not concerned about the wait time just wanted to get a response if they can quote on it. I'll send my e-mail to you. Thanks again.
