Question about GPS Devices
When powered on, the unit turns itself off after a few seconds of operation. Battery is about 1/4 charged, but does not seem to be taking additional charging. Any ideas? Many thanks
No way to know except you disconnect and watch your 4 baterry bars.
It take almost 4 hours to be full charge.

The Garmin Nuvi 855 uses a Lithium-ion battery. It is a very clean system and does not need priming as nickel-based batteries do. The 1st charge is no different to the 5th or the 50th charge.
In other words there is no memory effect with these batteries and it should be safe to charge it for as long as you like on the first charge. I would estimate 4 hours will give you a full charge if you wish to do this from the outset.

This can be repaired for far less than what you think. Please see this link:

SOURCE: I have a Garmin Nuvi
I had the same issue on my 1450 except it just would not power on anymore, even with a full charge. A soft reset will preserve your Home, Favorites, POis, etc. Leave the battery in the unit. Hold down on the lower right of the screen while holding down on the power button. After 20-30 seconds, you should see the Garmin splash screen. Have your PC/laptop ready with USB cable. Get the latest Map update downloaded and installed or just start using the unit again.
