I charge my Garmin over night. It says battery charge complete. When I turn on it stays on for a very few minutes then turns off.

    I found the problem. It will stay on as long as I don't try to put it on. When I bend it a little it will go off. It is like it is not making a connection and cuts off. I have opened it and can see the battery but now I am not sure it is the battery. If it starts working what kind of glue do I put it back together with?

My Garmin Nuvi 1300 is turned off and charging. It charged all night and still says its charging. Will it ever read fully charged?


Most likely not. I've been repairing the 1300 series for several years and I've never seen it. The older units would say "battery charge complete". I would go by the green battery icon in the upper right corner of the screen at the main menu. There should be 4 green bars to be fully charged. Of course to see them, you have to unplug the charger.

My garmin nuvi 770 won't turn on, either on switch or car 12V plug. What can I do now?


Holding the switch does not always work. The problem is that the Garmin batteries wear out very quickly and if you don't charge them every few days they drain completely and the voltage drops to zero. The problem is the brilliant Garmin engineers designed the Nuvi 700s so that the charging circuit doesn't activate when you plug it in if the battHolding the switch does not always work.

Also, even if you replace the battery, if the new battery is not already charged, you are in the same boat! I solved it by taking the Nuvi apart and zapping the battery with 5 volts across the red and black terminals. It's very difficult because the plug has tiny holes smaller than a typical pin. You have to be very careful too because the lithium polymer battery could catch on fire or explode! I used a very low current to lessen the chance of this. After doing this for about a minute and raising the battery voltage to about 3 volts, I plugged it back in, put it back together, and it was able to charge.

My garmin c330 will not run it had said battery low. Even in car lighter it will not stay on. When I push the power button it will power up and shut down right away


The Garmin C330 has an internal Lithum Ion battery that needs to be recharged. Use your USB cable that came with the device to connect it to you computer. The computer of course has to be on. Leave it connected to the computer all day or over night. After that time it should be charged completely. If it is not charged after that time the unit will have to be returned to Garmin to have the battery replaced.

Garmin nuvi 765 lithium battery will not hold a charge more than 15 minutes!


This is kind of a late response, but this post may help other people. I had the same issue and was ready to have Garmin exchange my battery until I called them today and spoke to Tech support. They helped me upgrade the firmware on the unit (didnt take long) and so far the problem has been resolved. I have had it on for two hours without fully charging it, which is better than before when it only stayed on for about 20 minutes. I recommend that people with this issue call them first since it appears to be a common issue with this model nuvi.

How do i charge my garmin 750


Plug the charger into the mini-usb jack. The unit should turn on and when you come to the main menu, you should see a lightning bolt over the battery bar graph. This indicates that it is charging. If you don't plan on using it and want to charge it over night, if your Nuvi has a push down power switch on the top, press and hold it briefly until it goes to a black screen and says charging. If your Nuvi has a slide switch, slide it to the left until you get the same charging screen. A few seconds later, the screen will go dark but if you touch the screen, it will light up again and say its charging and go dark again. After several hours, when you go to touch the screen it will say Charging Complete". Yiu will also notice then when you go to use it, you will see ALL of the green bars on the battery bar graph will be lit.

My motorola krzr only stays on for a few minutes after a full charge.


Yes, you should resort to a new battery, coz the old one is exhausted. Overnight charging is not a good habit. You should charge 2-3 hours until full, and remove the charger
