The internal batteries are not user replaceable. Please don't try to do this yourself. I've received numerous emails from people who have destroyed the Nuvi attempting to do this. I have replaced numerous Nuvi batteries. The life of the battery depends on how many cycles its gone through.

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:

Garmin 350 is there an internal fuse, I connected it to a 12 volt battery, but I think I crossed the wires, now it won't power on. Thanks


The Nuvi does not run off of +12V!!! It runs off of +5VDC. There is no internal fuse. I'm afraid you have fried your Nuvi,

My wife's Nuvi 350 will power on, start loading maps, then shut down (stays on for a total of 18 seconds). It's only 2 years old.


If its not connected to an external power source, then your battery is shot.

Should not do this when connected to an external power souce like the DC car charger or AC wall charger.

I have a garmin nuvi 350. It suddenly quit. It would not power up. I bought new car charger and wall charger specifically for nuvi 350. Both charger would not power up the gps at all. Is my battery dead or...


I would say this is not a battery problem. A Nuvi will power up even with the internal battery disconnect (done it many times myself ) when connected to an external power source. Please see this link about Dead Nuvi's. Have you tried pressing the reset button behind the antenna?

Why does my nuvi shut off without warning


MOST COMMON CAUSE IS THAT THE BATTERY IS LOW, IF THE UNIT IS AROUND 2 YEARS OLD THEN SUSPECT THE BATTERY OF BEING WORN OUT

I solved the problem by charging internal battery using the 120V. charger that came with the unit. I was not aware, that the cord in car was not charging my Nuvi and that it was running OK. until the battery was low and quit. I have to check this cord. Peter W.

No connection to satellite


Please read the solution that resolved this problem for someone else. Most likely, you have already tried this.

If the above procedure does not work for you, the entire antenna assembly will need to be replaced.
The other option is to purchase an external antenna for your Nuvi and plug it into the external antenna port (gold connector) on the Nuvi antenna assembly.

Best wishes,

Replace battery on Nuvi 350


Replacing the nuvi 350's battery is actually not all that hard as this video demonstrates:
The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to do this yourself if you'd like. See: http://www.newpower99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=GARMIN+NUVI+350&Show=ExtInfo I swapped the battery of a friend's dying GPS using the aforementioned kit and all went well. His nuvi 350 is back up and running smoothly.
