Re: battery

Try charging the unit on the computer if you have not done so. Sometimes this can solve the problem.

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.

Iq3600a battery replaced for low battery message..even

Hello there
i would suggest first make sure you have the right charger for the device
next try removing the battery and inspect the terminals where the battery connects and clean with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip.
check to see if they are slightly bent or corroded or worn out.
next inspect the battery it'self to see if any of the terminals are corroded or bent and clean as nessassary .
replace battery if needed and have the batery tested ok?
i really hope this helps you solve your problem.
best regards michael

Forerunner 305 keeps beeping, turning on and off every 5 seconds

I think I had the same problem. You do not write if your device were connected to the PC. My device was, and I finally got the suspicision, that it died because the battery was so low, that it crashed when the PC polled it as an usb unit.
So, I connected the unit directly to the charger unit that came with the unit, and now it works. So, try to connect directly to your charger, when your battery is totally drained.

Recently when returning from a trip my C550 giving keptme the message "satellite unable to locate" (not the exact words) This went on for a week or more but suddenly started locating me from the satellite....

Low battery power is generally r4esponsible for loss of signal or low signal. Charge itr fully before use and plug into car power source ONLY AFTER staring the engine so as to avoid spike deamage. The car charger cannot fully charge the battery it is justn sufficient to maintain a level of charge . If the battery gets too low it cannot maintain a constant signal.

Sounds like you both have a battery problem. I experienced a similar problem when trying to charge via the USB-cable connected to my computer.
Ended up buying an original charger (expensive) and the charging went smooth.
The car charger should in any case work fine, so probably your battery is not very healthy.

Try holding your finger on the battery symbol for about 10 sec. The unit will then switch to a technical page. There you can observe the battery and charging voltage. When I plug in my computer USB-cable, I read around 4,4V and that is not sufficient for charging my battery.
When connected to the original charger, this voltage rises to about 5V which gives a nice charge. When unplugging charger, the unit displays the battery capacity. If the charging voltage is OK, but battery capacity drops quickly after you unplug charger cable, the battery is probably bad. (Of course you have to charge is for some time) I think around 4V battery voltage give 100% capacity. 3,9V gives about 90% capacity.
This will not solve your problem, but can give you an idea about what is wrong.
Good luck.

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.
