Question about Garmin Rino 650 GPS Receiver
The battery has apparently run down too far and charging it doesn't help. Is there a way to shock the battery back into charging?

Same thing happened to mine. Put the unit in the cradle (just like you are going to recharge it) and press the reset and mode button at the same time for 3 seconds. This will "wake" the unit up.

The Garmin Nuvi 855 uses a Lithium-ion battery. It is a very clean system and does not need priming as nickel-based batteries do. The 1st charge is no different to the 5th or the 50th charge.
In other words there is no memory effect with these batteries and it should be safe to charge it for as long as you like on the first charge. I would estimate 4 hours will give you a full charge if you wish to do this from the outset.

I had this same problem with my Rino 530. I searched google with no luck. As I was on the phone with Garmin, I put side pressure on the adapter (that plugs into the clip, which clips to the battery) and the red light would stay on. They said I needed a new wall charger and clip. So in the mean time I wrapped electrical tape around the adapter to keep pressure on it. Charges great now. Hope this helps!
