    Hello everyone

    Joined the forum to share how to fix you charging cradle for your Nuvi 3597 LMT.

    First of all, check if the fuse inside the car charger is OK. If not, replace it and try the GPS again. If that fixed it - you're done! If not, see below. 20180715_102851.jpg 20180715_103356.jpg 20180715_101935.jpg 20180715_101856.jpg 20180715_101915.jpg 20180715_102851.jpg 20180715_103356.jpg 20180715_101935.jpg 20180715_101856.jpg 20180715_101915.jpg 20180715_102851.jpg 20180715_103356.jpg 20180715_101935.jpg 20180715_101856.jpg 20180715_101915.jpg

    1. Unscrew the 3 screws on the back of the cradle with a T5 screwdriver.
    2. Use a thin screwdriver to undo the clips around the edges.
    3. Open it up.
    4. A magnet is probably loose and stuck to the PCB, screwing with the electrical circuitry. Remove it.
    5. Clean the surface and magnet and apply proper glue.
    6. Let it dry.
    7. Assemble the cradle - reverse the steps.
    8. Enjoy working cradle at no expense

    Hope this helps someone.

    Best of luck,

    William
