I found my brand new nuvi 2595lmt repeatedly power cycling and loosing its charge when I tried to charge it (for the second time as well). I was using a different USB cable. When I switched to the supplied cable with the "Garmin" insignia on it, the problem resolved. Hope that helps, good luck.

SOURCE: Dead Garmin

I had the same problem - worked great for a year and yesterday was totally dead - not a hint of powering up.

I pulled the blue front "frame" off and held the reset button for about 5 seconds. It powered back up and works like a champ!

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi 660 dead battery?

Normal 0 Garmin NUVI 660 instructions


It is pretty easy to open up your nuvi,(but not recommended by Garmin or me)...
looking at your nuvi from the back flip up the antenna. You will see two tiny torx screws on the antenna. Remove them and carefully seperate the antenna housing. Pay attention to how the antenna flex is seated because reassembling the antenna housing can be tricky. On the left bottom side the pin assembly that holds the antenna in is spring loaded. Pull the pin towards the center and you will be able to seperate the antenna housing from the unit. Underneath you will find two more tiny torx screws holding the main housing togather. Remove those two screws and you are almost home. Now you need the special plastic tool that you can get on ebay. The tool is used for opening ipods without mangling them. Gently pry the case apart with this tool. Start where ever it is easiest to get the tool in. Once opened you can figure the rest out for yourself. The battery is flat and rectangular and is seated behind the circuit bourd attached to the back cover.

SOURCE: Charging Garmin Nuvi battery for first time

The Garmin Nuvi 855 uses a Lithium-ion battery. It is a very clean system and does not need priming as nickel-based batteries do. The 1st charge is no different to the 5th or the 50th charge.

In other words there is no memory effect with these batteries and it should be safe to charge it for as long as you like on the first charge. I would estimate 4 hours will give you a full charge if you wish to do this from the outset.

SOURCE: Garmin Nuvi will not load maps - why

Try the Hard Reset procedure outlined in this tip.

Does your Garmin Nuvi 205 or 205W Freeze at Loading Maps?
Does it lock up or stop working?

This tip will describe how to perform a hard reset of the device, and how to backup your 'Favorites' in case the hard reset erases them.

A hard reset (or Clear All User Data) has been known to resolve unit quirks and strange behavior after firmware updates. It's generally recommended to perform it after a firmware update but is not required by any means. However, if you're seeing quirks and strange behavior with your unit after the firmware update, it is a good idea to do a hard reset of the unit. It's also one of the first things that Garmin will have you do when contact tech support regarding quirky unit behavior.

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After the hard reset, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
Perform the Hard Reset:

*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit

  1. Power the unit off.
  2. Remove the battery and wait several minutes.
  3. Install the battery.
  4. Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.
  5. Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?"prompt appears.
  6. Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite almanac data.


You have now performed a hard reset of your Garmin Nuvi 205 and 205W.

I hope that helps.

Will not turn on, with or without charging


The Nuvi 25x5 is well known for having issues with the rear USB port becoming loose or disconnected from the PC board. This will prevent the unit from powering up when connected to an external charging source. It will also prevent the internal battery from being able to be charged, so when the battery has exhausted its charge, the unit will be dead. This can be repaired.

My garmin nuvi 2595 lmt will not turn on, recharge, nothing but a black screen. I pressed what i think was the reset button several times but nothing. Once I heard a sound as if it was going to turn on...


Take a look at rear USB port. Insert the plug. Gently wiggle the plug. Does the USB port appear loose? A common problem with this model is that there is little mechanical support for the USB connector. If it breaks off of the printed circuit board, there battery will nit be able to be charged and the unit will appear dead. Have you tried holding down the power switch for at least 10 seconds?

I battery went dead. I have pluged it into my computer . It lights up and shows a picture of it attached to the computer and the word Garmin but it does not show it chargeing.


Please leave it to charge and after about 2 hours - check it.
The Garmins need an initial charge to run - it is not bypassed if dead. It will not run on adapter power.

If it will not charge in vehicle or home - the jack may be loose from the board - but more likely the battery has failed.
