My Garmin GPS 12 XL will not power up. Is that an internal battery problem or is the unit shot as Garmin technicians tell me?


try swapping out the batteries, no harm in opening it up with a screw driver (will void the "warranty" that expired 12 years ago) check if there is an internal battery (usually a coin cell battery like cr 2025 or CR2020) otherwise it is dead and time to get an e-trex 30... great simple little unit with lots more features

I have a garmin GPS 12 that has lost its memory twice. What can I do to fix it?


I'd have to say that the lithium battery inside the GPS has outlived its usefulness. As this is used for memory backup, it's time to replace it.

Good Luck!

Garmin gps 12 loss of data


I had the same thing happen. The problem is that the internal lithium battery is shot. Solution: phone Garmin at 1-800-800-1020 x 2,2,1. You send the receiver in along with a $42.41 check. They will probably replace the unit. They will explain exact procedures when you call.
Hope this helps.

Garmin gps 12 wont turn on.


Sorry to hear of the dead units. Are you using the correct power cable with a small hole in the centre of the plug? The GPS 12 is strictly limited to 7 volts only. The accessory cigarette lighter cable for this model has a circuit inside to drop the voltage from 12 to 7. Cannot be fixed. There would have been a plastic peg in the back of the GPS socket to prevent anything but the correct voltage Garmin cable being plugged in. Unfortunately these pegs are easily broken off. Yes, they are a good little unit even though well on in years. The next model up - the 12XL - can accept a wide voltage range and does not have the plastic peg.

All the best, Tony at KiwiGPS.

Lost destination after saving it


Sounds like the internal memory battery is run down - it's charged from the AA's. Usually does not recover. Battery (the VL1220) is shown here: http://www.panasonic.com/industrial/battery/oem/chem/lith/vana.htm.

It' easily replaced once the case is open but requires a steady hand with a fine tip soldering iron. Local story started by me here.

Sealing the case up again is very fiddly - hard to make a tidy job with silicone.
