Anything but GARMIN Charger.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Home, Wall, Travel Charger AC Adapter for Garmin (Wireless Phone Accessory)
If you expecting to get a charger for Garmin GPS unit, forget it. You just got ripped. DO not buy this Chinese crap from anyone who claims that it can charge GPS unit. It will not. All you will get is crappie charger for cell phones an MP3 player with mini USB port. (Look at picture). I have a Garmin 255 and left it to charge overnight. After running a check up test on this unit battery charge was on a same level. (Just press and hold battery indicator on right corner for a few second and unit will run a check up test). Do not waist your money as I did. I wish someone will warn me here about this. We as a consumers need more protection against this kind of crappy products with false claims, which internet is full all over and sadly now here in Amazon as well.

Truth the matter is that as I found out you do not even need a wall charger. I am using my car charger since I have phrased GPS. Working flawlessly. If you drive car daily you can charge GPS unit while you driving around.

You can get a USB cable and charge it from your computer USB port. This cable also allows software and map updates.

I suppose if youre using it on your bicycle and dont have a car or youre using it for extended periods away from your car and forgot to charge it in your car or you dont want to sit near your computer to charge w/ usb or etc..........then you might want a wall charger. One of these applies to me. Thats why Im reading these reviews. HA!.......and I wont be buying this one. Thanks for your review!

This charger did not charge my Garmin Nuvi 1350T. It kept turning the GPS even when I shut it off! It appears to be similar to connection needed to update GPS with computer. It does not work.

Perfect solution Thank you. I don't drive enough to charge my unit, but I spend a lot of time at my desktop.

This charger works perfectly on my Garmin nuvi 50LM :) I can use the GPS while it's charging.
