Re: Battery Charging

You can tell the battery is fully charged on this model from the Where to go and View map page. It displays battery status in the upper right corner when disconnected from the cable or charger.

Don't know on the reet as I have not done that. You might try the garmin website and post a question to their support group.

My sky caddie sg5 wont charge

If you follow these instructions which I think you know how to, it will recharge. If not the rechargeable battery needs to be replaced

To charge the battery, simply follow the steps below:
  1. Gently pull back the rubber cover to gain access to the mini-USB port located at the bottom of the SkyCaddie. Insert the mini-USB connector of the supplied wall charger into the mini-USB slot.
  2. Plug the wall charger into the AC wall outlet. While charging, the charging indicator in the upper left-hand side of the SkyCaddie will show red. The charging indicator will switch to green when fully charged. You may also notice the unit's screen turn on and off periodically.
The battery will charge, even with the SkyCaddie turned off. A full battery charge may take 4 hours. Once fully charged, expect 36 holes of continuous play.

Warning!Always connect the cable to the SkyCaddie first before connecting to AC power or PC USB.

When charging my Garmin 265WT, is the screen supposed to show when the battery is fully charged? e.g. charging complete

While it's charging it doesn't show the battery indicator. When the charger is plugged out it shows the battery state on the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP

Navigon 2100 doesn't pick up any signal. Tried by keeping it on for more than an hour at various locations outside.

Nine minutes is the maximum time a GPS should take to lock on to a signal. Longer periods are caused by a failing battery or a battery that is not fully charged.

Either charge it via AC or USB, car chargers do not charge them fully they are just mainhtenance charging.

Replacing the battery in a magellan maestro 4370

thats a fairly new unit and i doubt if the battery is shot already. it could be, but verify that is shot.

1st verify that its charging. hook up the home or car charger, then go into the main menu, then options, then power options and see if the battery indicator is moving left to right..if it is, its charging. if its not moving and shows a low battery, then its not charging.

if the meter is fully green and shouts off when unplugged form power, i would disconnect the battery then hook it back up and check the charging again

let me know if you still need to replace the battery and ill find you one and tell you how to replace it.

Tom tom will not switch on

try charging the tom tom fully and then reset while it is charging. a tom tom will not reset unless the new battery is fully charged which may take some time if you only have a car charger.

please give me a fixya! rating if this helped.

How do I know that the GPS is charging. The light is green when pluged in. Should it not be red then go green Lorraine

On a Nuvi 200W, when you plug in the charger, the battery status icon should go away indicating that you are no longer on battery power and that you are now running on an external power source. You should also hear a beep when you plug in the charger.

To go into charge mode, move the on/off switch to the left like you would be going to turn it off but only hold it on long enough until you hear it beep or the screen goes black and says "Battery Charging". When the battery is fully charged, touching the screen, it should say "Battery Charge Complete". If its not fully charged, touching the screen, it will say that it's still in charge mode.

Charging a Garmin Nuvi 260W

Generally most batterys are left on the charger overnight, thats a good way to ensure a full charge, but as you will be using it in your car, it doesn't matter much as power is always available.

To ensure best possible battery life when you have a brand new battery, charge it fully and then drain it almost to 0% Draining most batterys into 0% will be harmfull instead of helpful, I assume the nuvi uses a Li-ion battery so draining it fully is not a good idea, drain it almost fully and then charge it fully.

And you are good to go, repeat the process if you leave the unit unused for a month or two for best battery life.

Thank you,
