Re: Battery replacement??

I assume you mean it does not give you the 30 seconds to choose to use battery power when the ignition is turned off. Have you tried charging it on the computer for a few hours? Sometimes this can help.

Replace the battery. You can only recharge so many times before it dies of old age.

Garmin 295 forerunner will not turn on


Did you mean the Forerunner 205?
It is most likely that the battery has died in the unit or there may be a problem with the battery charger.
The internal battery in the Forerunner 205 is not user replaceable and the unit would need to go back to a Garmin repair for replacement.
Please call Garmin Tech Support for assistance.

I turn my Colorado 300 on, it starts, but dies while loading maps. Like the batteries were out, but they are new.

Hi, It seems to be backup battery on PCB. You have to replace it. It is very frequent defect for CO which was made, same battery there were used by Garmin was defect - shorter life time. Jean

I have a nuvi 220 and it dosent want to turn on i try to charge it and it doset charge what can i do

The battery has died. Like all rechargeables it does not last forever.

Your options are to replace the battery (just search "nuvi 220 battery" for suppliers and instructions) or if you're thinking of updating the maps then it's cheaper to just replace the entire unit.

I turn it on stays on for couple of seconds and shut back down, a couple of times it say battery is low, has been hooked up to 12volt power connecter in my car for close to 2 days

Your Nuvi 760 needs a new battery: rechargeables don't last forever.

Garmin's hope is that when the battery fails then you'll buy a whole new Garmin or will send it to them to be replaced, but it's a straightforward task to do yourself. Buying a new unit might make sense though if your unit also has outdated maps and/or outdated traffic/speed camera subscriptions.

A number of online suppliers have suitable batteries and there's more than one YouTube video showing you how to replace the battery. Click here for an example. Note that the same battery is fitted to the identical Nuvi 770, the only differences between the models is that the 770 has a larger internal memory to enable it to carry full US, UK and European mapping.

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.

Garmin C340 battery not charging

The Garmin batteries tend to die after about 2 years. Garmin will replace the battery for you but prepare to pay top dollar. It is a shame because the problem is commonplace. They should have made the replacement user friendly. The battery is buried deep inside and it is soldered.
