Re: Charge can't keen on more than 5/6 hours

A free fix is always the best fix, so try cleaning the battery and phone contacts. Corrosion often forms on the contacts and frequently can't even be seen. Try removing the battery and wiping its contacts, and those in the phone, with a soft, dry cloth. Once that's done, recharge the battery and see how long the charge lasts. Phone centers know about this fix, but they don't make any money unless they can sell you something.

How long for a full charge?

From what I read in the manual, it takes 4-5 hours to charge from a 'flat' state (0% charge), and a full charge will last about 3 hours.

Here's a link to the manual.


And a link to a replacement charger if you need one (Title might only say 1200/1210 but it works for 2100)

We have 1350 Garmin GPS . How long do we charge the battery before set up.

There are 3 ways to charge your garmin satnav.
  1. You can connect it to your computer' USB port with the mini USB plug. Plug the narrow end of the cable into the back of the satnav and the USB end into the computer. Turn both on and it will charge in 8 hours approximately
  2. Connect the supplied car charging lead. Plug the narrow end into the back of the satnav and plug the other end into the cigarette lighter socket of your car for approximately 4 hours.
  3. You can also charge it with an optional mains charger which also takes 4 hours approximately.

Nuvi 205 will not charge keeps going into mass storage mode

The "problem" is with the charging cable. The mini USb connector, needs to have a 17,3 KOhm resistor between pins 4 and 5(ground).
This will solve your problem.

It wont keep a charge, the battery dies way to fast, it wont charge it with the cigarette lighter, or the house charger. once i unplug it it dies. I replaced the cigarette lighter and the home charger, and...

rechargeable batterries fade with age, neglect or misuse. Your battery is almost 2 years old from the time you purchased it, (probably 6 to 12 months older), so could indeed be dying. I just replaced a phone in my cell phone that was holding a charge for less than a day. The replacement from batterybuyer dot com fixed the problem and now my phone stays charged for 3 to 4 days.

Open the case of the GPS unit and the battery will have its specifications marked on it, usually a serial number and voltage, plus capacity in Milli-amp hours.

Gps 276C doesn't charge fully

Garmin has updates for this issue on the website but it doesn't fix all the units. Mine for example still does the whole "charge complete" thing when showing 1/2 a battery. The funny thing is I let it drain and the unit stays on for about 10 hours after it says the battery is dead. Garmin is working on a new fix and they said it should be up in about a week.
