Garmin nüvi 2350LMT has two charging ports? Based on reviews I've read, Garmin nüvi 2350LMT has a mini USB port (on the unit itself) to connect to the computer for updates and then there is one charging port at the unit's mount. Could the mini USB port on the unit be used for charging also?

Just received this unit the other day. Tried to use the ports (one at a time) for charging, both worked fine. I asked coz I saw the picture on 1 of the reviews, the location of the charging port at the mount can be a problem at some position/angle but since there are 2 port options for charging there should be no more issue BUT the drawback would be using a different cable (w/o the FM transmitter) rendering Traffic info feature disabled. For me it's fine to disable that feature coz like many others, I find those pop up advertisements annoying, haven't proven this feature's accuracy though.
R. Agrawal - I don't know actually if it is a good idea to use that usb port (intended for Computer connection) to charge the unit but since the unit is charging also while connected to the computer so maybe it is ok =) Anyway, Yes I was able to use my GPS to navigate using the USB port (intended for Computer connection) to charge from the car power outlet. You can try to wait for atleast 30-60 sec for your GPS to recognize that the source is not a computer but rather a wall/car power outlet, your GPS should reboot and you can then use it to navigate. Maybe less than a minute of waiting
GeroCzan - The micro USB port can be used to charge the GPS but only when not in use. Were you able to use a car charger to charge the GPS while using it for navigation? I tried but the display changes to a picture showing the GPS connected to a computer. GPS becomes unusable if connected to micro USB. Would be great to know how you did it! I don't care as much for the traffic information if I can use a car charger with micro USB port.
