You need to recharge the battery either by connecting it to the computer (USB) or to the car cigarette lighter.

Charging connector is loose

Yes, you have found the problem. The mini-USB jack is broken, preventing the battery from being charged. However, you can charge the battery by using the 660's snap in cradle and bypass the USB port. If you want the jack replaced, please see this link:

You will want to fix the jack because you will not be able to update the firmware or map until the jack is fixed.

Says I have a low battery. I think I am missing the battery and holder located on the side. What is the battery I am missing?

The battery is inside the satnav. If you get a message saying that your battery is low you should plug in the car charger for 4 hours, or a mains charger for 4 hours or connect it to your computer for 8 hours to charge it.

If it fails to charge by any of these methods the battery may be worn out and unable to take a charge. If this is the case you need to return it to garmin to have the battery replaced.

The unit won't says "low battery". i


I don't know where you live - so I don't know who nearby can work on it. Regardless, my suggestion is to return it to Garmin and let them handle it. Since your nuvi 760 is out of warranty, Garmin will charge $99 to "factory overhaul" it. What this means really is, you will get a factory rebuilt nuvi 760. Garmin will not fix yours and return it to you - but rather they will send one that that belonged to someone else that they refurbished. This means really fast "turn around" instead of waiting for yours to be fixed. In short, you will not get the same one you sent in. The refurbished unit will come with the latest up - to - date maps and have a 90 day factory warranty.

Check out Garmin's page to learn more about this overhaul service and to take advantage of it. If you do send it in - your data will be lost. Garmin will erase all your personal data, photos, etc. from the nuvi (and they won't put it on the replacement) - so if there's anything on it that you want - be sure to copy it before sending in.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

Replacement of the memory battery of my Garmin 195

Piece of cake. Remove screws from back of device. Separate the housing and carefully lift up circuit card off of pins. There is a battery holder underneath. Simply remove wafer battery and replace with like model battery. Put back together and you're off.

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.

Dead Garmin

I had the same problem - worked great for a year and yesterday was totally dead - not a hint of powering up.

I pulled the blue front "frame" off and held the reset button for about 5 seconds. It powered back up and works like a champ!

Batter low message when plug into lighter holder

Sound as though the I3 is not getting power from the lighter. Hook the garmin to your laptop and turn on the laptop, now turn on the I3, does it still shows low battery message on the screen? If the answer is yes then the USB connector has failed (know problem with the I3). There are many unit sold on ebay with broken USB connector. If the I3 doesn't show Battery Low then the lighter cable is defective.
