My Nuvi350 goes dead and has no battery power when I remove it from the cradle/bracket. I've had it for a few years. Is there an internal battery that should be changed?


yes there is an internal battery and it is the problem, the battery is "hardwired" into the GPS and it must go back to Garmin or an approved GPS repair station, to replace the battery takes special tools and the battery must be soldered back into the unit, any attempt to remove the batt without the spec tools results in a damaged and unusable GPS

My Garmin 276c indicates "Battery Missing" even with a new Batt.


Check the battery contact points inside the unit. There may be a thin film of crud (oxidation) that prevents contact, especially if the previous battery had any signs of corrosion.

My Garmin forerunner 305 recently got immersed in


I have read in some other posts about the unit only working while being plugged into a USB port. My guess is that the battery is in fact shot and the unit will only run off the USB port while plugged in. Submersing in water is not a good idea. On the back of the unit there are some small holes for the speaker. These speakers corrode from sweat and eventually quit.

Screen goes blank after locating sattilites.


Accordingto Garmin, this problem can be fixed by disabling the WAAS feature in teh set up menu. There is an incompatibility between the old Garmin software and latest WAAS upgrades. Later software from Garmin is supposed to fix this problem.

Batteries last only 20 minutes?


NiMH batteries work on less voltage than Alkaline batteries, so the unit thinks the batteries are low when they are just the wrong type, put Alkaline batteries in {and turn off the backlight if possible} and you will get your 8 hours of use.

When checking battery - garmin freezes when using "exit" button


I would go to the garmin site and update the firmware. The 850's had a loop problem in the software recently so it is worth a try.

Garmin 530 log on problems


Could be a problem with the memory card. Please try to remove that then power up and see if the issue is resolved. If not, it could be a problem with the internal circuitry. If this is the case, then unfortunately, there is no other go except to get the device service.

Unit fails to maintain charge


You are correct, most GPS units use a lithium ion rechargable battery, typically they loose there ability to retain a charge after about a year or so depending on use, resulting in the unit having to be always plugged in.

You probably could replace the battery on your own if you could get one, (needs to be soldered into the mainboard) however GARMIN does not sell battery's to consumers, they state that a battery can only be replaced by a garmin service tech.
