Question about Garmin nuvi 750 GPS Receiver

Open Question

Garmin Nuvi 750 killed both my car and my double truck batteries

I had a new battery in my car and did not suspect my Garmin of killing the battery, but it did. I then put it in my truck which has 2 batteries. After a day of driving I unplugged the Garmin. The next morning both batteries in the truck were completely drained. I recharged my car battery a week ago and it has been just fine. Is it possible, if the Garmin battery is poor, that it works against the charging system?

    Hi Willie Baunsguard, I am wondering if the lead is faulty that plugs into the garmin. As you stated the battery is drained with it unplugged was the lead plugged into the car cig lighter socket while being unplugged from the garmin end ?

SOURCE: Brand new Garmin nuvi 755t won't power up.

i have had the same problem obviously. all i did was get a TORX TX5 screw driver and open up 2 screws. carefully lift off the cover(its just snapped in). Warning: battery and speaker are attached to the cover so do not pull the cover off or it will break the wire. carefully unplug the battery and leave it out for a 20 mins or so. plug it back in and it should power up and then connect it to internet, download webupdater and update. thats it and the problem is fixed.

It is very rare that it would be a problem with the Nuvi 750 GPS itself. This is because there are stationary gold pads on the bottom of the 750. No moving parts to wear out. We have seen problems with a bad plug on the charger that plugs into the cradle and the receptacle on the cradle can go bad as well. I would suspect more toward the cradle as we have seen the receptacles break away from the printed circuit board that is inside of the cradle. Best way to troubleshoot is to find a friend who has a duplicate charger and cradle and swap each piece, one at a time and see which resolves the problem... either the cradle is bad or the charger plug is bad. If you want us to test your unit, cradle and charger, let us know. Good luck! :) More info on charger issues here:

Time for a new battery. If you talk to garmin they will want to replace the entire unit. You can buy a battery for about $23 and do it yourself.
Here is on place that sells them but I would also search for others to compare prices and specs.

No car radio / stereo for use with Garmin nuvi 750 GPS


Every Garmin Nuvi unit I've seen has a (loud) built-in speaker. The only demand our 250s and 265 make of the vehicle is a 12V power supply (and they'll even work without that for a while, until the battery goes flat).

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.
