The battery is replaceable. Batteryship.com sells a battery for around 27 or 28 dollars and a 7 dollar kit. There are two small torq screws that can be removed with the screw driver provided in the kit. The plastic tool provided in the kit is used to pry open the the back cover after the two screws are removed. removing the cover takes some force after you can get your fingers in to pull it apart. Once the cover comes loose remove the wires attached to the Garmin from the battery and the speaker. Notice how the small plastic ends fit in from the battery and the speaker to make certain that the small ends go in correctly. The battery is secured with a sticky tape and has to be muscled out of the unit. The new battery can be secured with double sticky back tape or some of the saved tape from the old battery. Secure the back and replace the small screws and your in business. The battery requires charging. Good luck it worked for me and I'm an all thumbs guy

Mine does the same thing, after years of freezing heating and thawing in the car the batteries just won't hold a charge anymore.Getting a replacement battery would cost about $24 plus shipping.

Nuvi 750 battery will not hold a charge. Unit works fine if plugged into the auto power. What might the problem be? What is the estimated cost of repair.


Sounds like you just have a dead/bad battery.

You can check to see if your device was included in a recent battery-related recall here:
https://my.garmin.com/rma/recallLanding.faces

If your unit is not included in the recall and you are (or a friend is) handy, you can buy a replacement on the net and replace it yourself for around $25 (US Dollars):

(There are other sources for the battery, I do know if the linked company is trustworthy.)

I'm not sure what Garmin charges for this type of service?

Turn on shuts right off already tried to reset?


The problem is either a dead battery - and the only way to know is to charge it for sure - in a wall charger. Many cell phone chargers etc will work- other wise - you must charge it in the car charger - this takes at least 20 minutes.
If your battery will not charge - I suggest you send it to Garmin for servicing.
Also a new Garmin 285WT is on sale at Tiger Direct dot com.

Internal battery won't charge


Common issue. Steps to troubleshoot/solve:
1. Pull off face, press reset tab.
2. If unit wont turn on or if turns off immediately, connect to home computer using mini usb on side of gps (any usb cord that fits will do). This will charge the internal gps battery, which is discharged.
3. You will not be able to see the gps charge indicator while the usb cord is plugged into the unit. To check charge level, disconnect it, turn it on, and note the large "battery" icon.
4 Do you have a dead internal battery? If the gps holds a charge from your computer usb port, you don't.
5. If you have a dead battery, Google DIY replacement. With some soldering it can done for $15 total.
6. If you don't have a dead battery, the issue is charging from the cigarette lighter socket. Your car socket may have blown a fuse (check car manual). Your charger unit may have blown a fuse (unscrew the tip, check fuse inside). Also, some car sockets don't work when the ignition is off. Test yours.
7. There is a good chance the connection of the charger wire to the gps cradle is the problem. Fiddle with that. Replacement cradles are available for the c340 at about $25.
8. If your unit is not charging from the cradle/socket, buy a 12v usb cord. Plug into socket and into usb port of the gps. This is a workaround or alternative to buying a new cradle.
9. IMPORTANT: observe the "battery" icon while driving, esp. if you have doubts about charging. Basically, if you can see the icon, you're not connected to an outside (car or computer) power source. That is, if you can see the battery-charge indication, it means your battery is currently discharging and unless you get another power source to work it will be dead in a few hours.
