Question about GPS
My 2455 charges erratically while on dc cycling between charging and not charging - mostly not charging and the not connected to a power source screen pops up a lot during this - it has also rebooted on occasion. I am able to charge it on AC with no problem and the battery retains it's charge. I thought it may be a problem with the charger cable so got a new garmin branded one for my model and it had the same issue - so returned that cable. I also tried this in my cousins car thinking my rental may have a wonky cigarette charger but the same issue happens in my cousins car - so ruled out the cable and the car cigarette charger and as mentioned if I do charge it on AC the battery retains it's charge - so thinking it is not a battery issue. any other suggestions?

SOURCE: Quest Battery Problem
A battery for a Sony Clie N610C works perfectly, everything fits and its easy work to do. Just cut the leads off of your old battery and then solder them to the Clie battery (its on a little circuit board) and then install, my Quest II now has a functioning battery 15 minutes later.

You may need to replace the battery.
The video on the link below shows how to replace the battery in a Garmin Nuvi:

SOURCE: Charging a garmin nuvi 255w
From dead flat it takes about 9-10 hours
do not leave on charger for more than that otherwise you will overheat and burn it out.
After each use recharge for about 3-4 hours depending on whether the unit has been used for that lengthyof time

Try the Hard Reset procedure outlined in this tip.
Does your Garmin Nuvi 205 or 205W Freeze at Loading Maps?
Does it lock up or stop working?
This tip will describe how to perform a hard reset of the device, and how to backup your 'Favorites' in case the hard reset erases them.
A hard reset (or Clear All User Data) has been known to resolve unit quirks and strange behavior after firmware updates. It's generally recommended to perform it after a firmware update but is not required by any means. However, if you're seeing quirks and strange behavior with your unit after the firmware update, it is a good idea to do a hard reset of the unit. It's also one of the first things that Garmin will have you do when contact tech support regarding quirky unit behavior.
Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:
The Hard Reset procedure has been known to delete your Favorites, so back them up beforehand.
*Note that this will clear all user selected settings on the unit
If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite almanac data.
You have now performed a hard reset of your Garmin Nuvi 205 and 205W.
I hope that helps.

Replacing the nuvi 760's battery is actually not all that hard as
this video demonstrates:
The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to do this yourself if you'd like. See: http://www.newpower99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=GARMIN+NUVI+760&Show=ExtInfo I swapped the battery of a friend's dying GPS using the aforementioned kit and all went well. His nuvi 760 is back up and running smoothly.
