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

NewPower99.com sells a battery kit which comes with video instructions on replacing the battery, tools, and a new battery. It worked great for me.

Battery went dead on Garmin 396. The unit worked with airplane power in GPS mode but displays "waiting for data" on Nexrad Radar. I have downloaded version 5.30 I should alao mention that...


You indicated that the battery went dead. Does the new battery work correctly? That is, does it show a full charge when you've had it plugged in overnight and disconnect the power? Try plugging it into AC power overnight and verify that the battery is accepting and holding a full charge. If it isn't, then unplug and turn the unit on and allow the battery to run all the way down. Then charge it fully. This resets the charge indicator. You may have to repeat it once. I did this and was able to again show that both my new and my old battery were working o.k. They should show about 8.1 V fully charged.
About the Nexrad problem. In the past I would need to refresh the XM receiver when this happened. XM walked me through it and I have the steps, but the links are no longer working. Maybe it is no longer required since the XM link now jumps to SiriusXM. I've not needed to refresh for a couple of years and I suspect they eliminated that requirement.
To verify that the XM antenna is connected: Turn unit off. Connect the XM receiver. Simultaneously press "on" and "enter" keys- hold both until data screen appears, which takes about 5 seconds. Second line from bottom indicates if it is seeing the XM receiver. This helps isolate where the problem is- i.e. if you have a faulty receiver, bad connection or a software problem. The only contact I know of now is Garmin 800-800-1020. They can give you the XM contact if the problem is on that side of the unit. There is other data here which may be of interest to you on this page. Turn unit off to close this window.
If you need your XM radio ID, turn 396 on. Press menu, menu, scroll to XM, then right to Info. XM Receiver ID is there. Write it down in case you talk to XM or they give you a way to refresh. There are other menus you can get into but if they show a problem I don't know the solution other than contacting Garmin and I don't have my XM receiver home so can't verify the steps.

My garmin nuvi 770 won't turn on, either on switch or car 12V plug. What can I do now?


Holding the switch does not always work. The problem is that the Garmin batteries wear out very quickly and if you don't charge them every few days they drain completely and the voltage drops to zero. The problem is the brilliant Garmin engineers designed the Nuvi 700s so that the charging circuit doesn't activate when you plug it in if the battHolding the switch does not always work.

The problem is the brilliant Garmin engineers designed the Nuvi 700s so that the charging circuit doesn't activate when you plug it in if the battery voltage is zero. See the Catch 22? Also, even if you replace the battery, if the new battery is not already charged, you are in the same boat! I solved it by taking the Nuvi apart and zapping the battery with 5 volts across the red and black terminals. It's very difficult because the plug has tiny holes smaller than a typical pin. You have to be very careful too because the lithium polymer battery could catch on fire or explode! I used a very low current to lessen the chance of this. After doing this for about a minute and raising the battery voltage to about 3 volts, I plugged it back in, put it back together, and it was able to charge.

My Garmin will not start up.


it sounds like your battery within the GPS Unit is died. You need to charge it somehow. Keep it connected to the car charger for around 30 mins and unit should turn on. Do not keep it on while it is being charged

Nuvi 750 wont turn on even when i hold the on button for a minute or more


Looks like the in-built rechargable battery is fully discharged. Try charging it for good amount of time like more than an hour through Car or computer charger. Keep the unit off to maximize charging.

Menu,tools,media player, source,browse.
In here you will have options too, fwd,rewind,skip, repeat,shuffle etc...

Hope this helps

Garmin 750 - 90 days old


Had the same problem-try this- leave your nuvi off for about 4 hours. Push the power button to the right(lock position) and then to the left (power on position) and let go. I suspect temperature (getting overheated is the problem. This worked for me.
