It worked fine with the Garmin charger on the way to MTL until I pigtailed it 
to a dual plug with the computer.  Now when I have it plugged separately it 
starts to load the maps then switches to the computer connection.  I checked 
settings but don't see anything that looks like a logical change to make.  I 
did manage 21 caches yesterday and 30 today so I'm managing but I still need to 
fix before hitting any long drives where I'm relying on it for directions.

-
Are you using their car charger, or one that fits? They are wired 
differently so the unit can tell whether it is connected to the car or 
computer. I just got a Colorado, and the car charger has a problem, so I 
tried using a Motorola phone car adapter, and it did the same thing. 
Anyway, there is an update to the Colorado that tells it not to go into 
computer connection mode when you power it with a non Garmin car adapter.

Based on the fact that the wiring is different, you could be having a 
problem with the cord that is enough to cause that kind of problem, but 
not enough to cause the unit to be without power.
