Wire to show that it's not hooked to a computer?

I have a similar problem, the mini USB broke free. I traced the connections and soldered a USB cable to the 5 volts and ground and it charges the battery but anytime I connect it says that I have connected to a computer... even when I am connected to a cigarette adapter in the car. Is there another wire that I need to connect to let it know that I am not hooked to a computer?

Omar, that is because the other ports on the USB are the data lines. Once you insert your power cable, it reads it as connected. I would may be try and modify the power cable so that you only have the +5 and ground when you connect it to your GPS.
