Charging using usb port

Post by solar1951 »

Simple question I hope.
I want to be able to charge my Garmin Satnav via the usb port on my computer running Mint 19.3.
However when I plug it in it automounts the sat nav and doesnt charge it.
What do I change to charge from a usb port ?
Thanks

I had a Garmin Nüvi (not anymore), which auto started when connected to Windows. However, when I switched off the device, it started charging. Did you try switching it off while connected?
