I haven't used my Garmin GPSMAP 292 for a couple


Have you tried pressing Page + Power at the same time while starting the 292?
Seems like there is a well Kinoen problem with the auto locate locking in wrong position and IF you reset the past position memory by pressing Page + Power while Power up should fix the problem.
You still need approx 20min location time but its better than 12-24h.

I have had my radio for many years but when I wanted to put it in another room it displays a half "L" on the display when I plug it in. Do I have to replace the battery when I'm using an...


Hello
You haven't specified nothing about your Emerson Smartset Clock Radio. Nothing is there about its model number. Yet I posts this solution before you assuming that yours' is a CKS3528 Emerson Clock radio.

There is a long life lithium battery installed in this clock radio when you buy it.

This battery can maintain the time and alarm settings for 3 to 5 years, or even

longer, so there is no need to pay for a new 9-volt battery every 6 months, as
is recommended in other clock radios with normal battery back up.
But if this lithium battery has gone down [ in terms of voltage]; the display 'L" will be there. It means that, it is time to replace this backup battery. It will be of disc type, usually used as bios setting storage, used in computers. OK.

My battery is 2 year's old and is now only lasting 30 minutes after fully re-charging.


Two years is actually pretty good for a rechargeable battery in regular/constant use.
Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries have around 500 recharge cycles and then will loose capacity very quickly as for your unit.

This internal Li-Ion battery will now need to be replaced.

Hope it helps.

The 670 garmin shut down then say's low battery


musicman340,

It sounds like the rechargeable battery inside your gps is coming to the end of its life. After enduring the temperature extremes of your car in addition to numerous charges and discharges, these batteries do eventually die after a couple years. How old is your nuvi? If this is the problem, the good news is that you don't have to throw your gps away as this battery is readily replaceable if you follow the steps in this video:

The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to replace your battery. See: http://www.newpower99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=GARMIN+NUVI+670&Show=ExtInfo
I swapped the battery of a friend's dying GPS using the aforementioned kit and all went well. His nuvi is back up and running smoothly.

C330 indicates low battery although plugged into charger


The internal lithium ion battery is not user replaceable. You will need to have the unit serviced by Garmin.

My garmin Street Pilot just went dead on me.


I got back into my vehicle today to go get my mom at the airport. I plugged the unit In & It worked. I suspect that It is the battery. After I shut off the engine I got the message that says do you want to still operate on battery power. I clicked ok but it said low battery. So now I have it charging by using my portable air compressor. So hopefully It doesn't die on me for at least another few years or if It does then It's time to upgrade to the Nuvii

Thanks for the people that replied to my question.

Replacement of the 10 year lithium back-up battery


Pry it apart along the edge with an exacto. Be careful around the antenna where it is circular.

Get a new battery to match and a battery holder from DigiKey.
Solder wires to the new battery holder and secure it at an angle up by the antenna with white silicone making sure that the case closes. Get the + and - right when you solder.

Test the unit then secure the case with white silicone in a small bead.

You can go to batteries plus or wherever and buy a new 3 volt battery for it. You will have to unsoder the old one and soder the new one back in. Original was a VL1220, I replaced with a Dantona Lith 1-2VLS
