    The battery icon is shaded from empty to full... Does yours not have a battery icon on the top right? If not, go into preferences and verify it has the battery icon selected. good luck

SOURCE: Not turning on

My unit was totally dead. I just kept it plugged into my computer for about 12 hours. I downloaded the newest software from Garmin. When I unplugged it from my computer, the battery seemed to drain quick, but once I plugged it into the card adapter in the car... everything seems to be running great now.

SOURCE: garmin gps powers off even when fully charged

If you're "recharging" via the car charger - you might want to try charging via USB jack on your computer - or AC adapter (if your GPS shipped with one) for 5 or more hours.

Many Garmin units develop this condition when used strictly in the car / cigar outlet power source. While connected to your computer, you should go to Garmin's website and download, install & run the "webupdater" software. When complete, your Garmin GPS will have the latest firmware and patches to the software (not maps!).

After charging via USB or AC adapter, your GPS should stay on. If your GPS turns on via a slide switch on the top, Slide the switch from OFF and hold in the ON position for 10 seconds before letting go of the switch. This should force a "boot" on the GPS.

If you're unable to get the device to power up, contact Garmin Support to determine if your device is affected by a a recent battery recall or if there are other suggestions they have to solve the problem.

I hope this helps!

How do i get my garmin to charge to a full charge

You can connect to your computer with a usb cable until it is fully charged. And remember to turn it off after use each time in car. And actually, if you use it in your car and is always connect with the 12V DC, it is really not a matter it is fully charge or not. It still functioning well.

When you unplug the charger from the satnav it shows a battery indicator on the top right of the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP. If the indicator is fully green the satnav is fully charged.

Charging takes 4 hours approx if you charge it with the car charger or the mains charger. It takes approx 8 hours if you charge it with the USB port of your computer.

How to charge garmin 765 on computer

Very simple: connect the cable that came with the GPS: USB end to computer, mini USB to the GPS. When the unit is charging, the battery icon will disappear.

Unfortunately, Garmin did not think you would want to know the percentage of charge completed (they confirmed it to me in email), so you have to guess that after 2-4 hours your GPS is fully charged.

My new nuvi 255w will not start displaying info

When using a usb from your computer it is only a trickle
charge to the garmin. Will take a day or two to fully charge. If you use a the cigarette lighter plug that came WITH the garmin, it will fully charge in 4 hours. Stick with garmin approved plugs and all will go smooth. I know, I made the same error.

Charging Garmin 350 battery

I guess it should be fully green, it takes several hours, and you wont kill it if you let it charge overnight.

Battery Charging

You can tell the battery is fully charged on this model from the Where to go and View map page. It displays battery status in the upper right corner when disconnected from the cable or charger.

Don't know on the reet as I have not done that. You might try the garmin website and post a question to their support group.
