Question about Garmin nuvi GPS
After chargeing my Garmin nuvi 260w battery, it does not hold a charge.
If a wall powered charger is used it could be bad or the connection from it to the unit damaged---happens if the charger is connected/disconnected a lot----same thing can happen if using the lighter plug adapter for charging.

SOURCE: SD Card slot Garmin nuvii 260
I have found that waypoints, routes and directions work only when I load it on the unit itself as opposed to the SD card. The SD card works more like an expansion slot for pictures or maps.
When you open up Mapsource you'll see the map on the right and the pane on the left, above the pane there are 4 tabs (Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks). As you select a map or create a waypoint, route or track. It will put a number in parenthesis which will increase in numbers as you add an item corresponding to each category, for example if you create a waypoint. So once you have done that, click on the TRANSFER tab in the Menu selection bar and choose SEND TO DEVICE. A window will pop up that will say...Device: with a drop down menu if your Garmin unit has an SD card in it, if not it will just show the Garmin unit. Then right below that there will be a section that says WHAT TO SEND with 4 check boxes that will say Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks. Make sure that you have selected the Garmin unit, not the SD, and the waypoints, routes or tracks you want to send. I hope this solves your problem or at least points you in the right direction...

SOURCE: Charging a Garmin Nuvi 260W
Generally most batterys are left on the charger overnight, thats a good way to ensure a full charge, but as you will be using it in your car, it doesn't matter much as power is always available.
To ensure best possible battery life when you have a brand new battery, charge it fully and then drain it almost to 0% Draining most batterys into 0% will be harmfull instead of helpful, I assume the nuvi uses a Li-ion battery so draining it fully is not a good idea, drain it almost fully and then charge it fully.
And you are good to go, repeat the process if you leave the unit unused for a month or two for best battery life.

What you would do is, under where the model code sticker is under is the reset button. remove the sticker and hold down the reset button for 10 seconds at the same time hold the power button towards the left.

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.
