I cant get sat nav to stay powerd on in the car.willpower up on computer but wont stay charged


Any time the unit will not stay powered after an external power source has been removed is an indication that the battery is failing. A Nuvi 205 is a pretty old unit. If the battery has never been changediast2 years, I would recommend having it replaced. info here:

My garmin nuvi 205 will not power on. I have plugged it in to charge the unit and it updates maps and shows the charging screen. Afterwards I unplug the unit and slide the switch over and it will not power...


This is likely a failed battery.
The battery on these units is not user-replaceable (soldered to the PCB) and must be returned to Garmin for repair.

Your nuvi 205 is listed as a $79 flat rate repair.

Yesterday my Nuvi 205 worked fine, today it will not turn on. I have verified with another unit that the charge cable is fine and the other units charger will not activate my Nuvi


If your Garmin NUVI 205 can be recognized by your computer when plugged in, I recommend you backup your favorites.

Then I suggest attempting a hard reset.

Finally, replace the firmware and system software using webupdate. Your Nuvi should not need to be able to power up for a firmware update to be possible - replacing the firmware should allow it to power up successfully after the update.

I hope that helps.

My mains charger exploded and now 205 does not charge also no comms. Unit worked normally till battery went flat. When plugged into PC usb, Unit gets warm in area around mem card but does not charge.Any...


This is a new set of symptoms to me, but whenever these devices start acting up, I recommend performing a hard reset of your Gamin Nuvi 205. Also, use Garmin's WebUpdater service to make sure you have the latest software on your device.

I hope that helps.

My Garmin Nuvi doesnt charge


I've received many units for repair where the customer thougth that the battery was bad because the unit would not turn on or stay on long.

The problem was really caused by broken connections on the mini-USB jack. Please see this link for more info, specifically look at the section dealing with the mini-USB connector.

Garmin Nuvi fails to work after firmware update


When a Garmin Nuvi 205 stops working or behaves strangely, there are two steps you can take yourself to try and get it going again:

  1. Perform a Hard Reset,
  2. Run WebUpdater to reinstall the firmware.

I hope that helps.

My Garmin nuvi 1300 brightness problems


I spoke to Garmin Support about this issue. There are 2 settings for contrast on the nuvi 1300. You need to set the contrast while it is plugged into the vehicle, and also while it is unplugged from the vehicle. The reason for the 2 settings is to save the charge of the battery while it is not plugged into the vehicle or power source.

Garmin 205 will not turn on or charge.


Have you tried to plug the unit into another car lighter socket? The battery may be dead in the unit and the charge cable could have a blown fuse or the cigarette light socket may not be working. Try plugging something else into the car and see if it works. If it does then try to plug the gps cord and gps into another car to see if it works. If not you may have a blown fuse in the plug. Unscrew the tip of the plug and change the fuse. Good luck.
