Most batteries, apart from the older nickel-cadmium type, give a better life when charging is short and creates as little heat as possible.
This means charging should be a frequent top-up charge rather than leaving it until the battery is well discharged and then recharging over a longer period.
If the unit is used in a vehicle and operated from the power plug it should not need additional charging.
If the unit is stored for any length of time it should be charged before it is stored and have a top-up charge every couple of months or as required. Experience with your unit will eventually guide you more accurately than I can. Beware of leaving the battery discharged for more than a few days. Discharged batteries are soon permanently damaged and die early.
The battery status only shows up when the satnav is disconnected from the charger. Your first charge should be a continuous charge until the battery is full. This can be done by connecting it to your computer for 8 hours approximately or 4 hours to your car cigarette lighter socket or 4 hours to an, optional extra, mains charger.
2 years is generally about it for the battery on the C330. You most likely need a new battery. Charging it on or off does not matter. Run it with the back light on a dimmer mode to increase battery life for now.
Have you tried replacing the battery. Wont charge? Sometimes if the battery is totally depleted even the charge light will not go on until the battery reaches a certain level of fill. Are you sure it isnt charging? A new battery will confirm its viability to be able to deliver service in future.
Press the Power button on the top right corner of the case.
If unit will not power on, battery may be dead. Try connecting car charger or power adapter to unit.
To charge battery faster, leave unit connected to power adapter or car cord. Press and hold Power button to turn unit off. Screen will show "Going into charge mode."
Remove the battery for several minutes, replace the battery and plug the wall socket in, leave it for several hours. The battery is probably too dead to do anything, and recharges very slowly. If this doesn't work, try a replacement battery, before you send the unit in for repairs.
The Nuvi 200 only has a 5 hour battery. Once charged, it can be removed from the charger, but the battery will only last 5 hours. Can you plug it into the car charger and navigate while charging BEFORE the battery dies? If so, and you don't have to remove the charger, you can leave the unit plugged in while you navigate without damage to the unit.
maybe there is no memory caused by a flat or stuffed lithium battery or battery charging circuit in the pin 570. fix: leave unit to charge for 24 h if the battery still dosnt charge because it is over discharged, then you may be able to push some charge in it after the battery is unplugged, after opening the case, and removing the circuit board.
