Have you tried charging the unit from the computer? This can sometimes help.

    If you cannot tell if it is charging, it is NOT charging. When the unit is plugged into the computer, is should turn on. Then it should display an image of the unit connected to a computer with a cable. If it is not doing this, it is not charging. It sounds like your battery may be done for. You might need to contact Garmin about replacing it.

    Where did you purchase it? Can you return it and get a new one? If you can, this would be your best bet. It is a great GPS, but not if it doesn't come on. :)

  • Kevin Miller Feb 21, 2008

    Any time. I wish I could have done more for you. Good luck with it. Any problems in the future, let me know. :)

The battery is run down too low. When the light came on, alternator stopped working- the vehicle ran off the battery, until the lights and other electricals ran the battery down too low.
Recharge the battery, and have the alternator tested. It will probably need replacing. If you bring it into a parts store, they will test it for free.

Find a local Garmin dealer - there's no way to reinstall system software once its missing essential parts to complete a startup.

Garmin allows updates in battery mode which can brick the GPS once it runs out of power during the update.

My tomtom 920 simply won't turn on, I used it yesterday and it was fine, though it did warn me that the battery is very low. I have charged it for 1hr but it still won't come on. What could be the problem...

The batery is finished, even if you plug it in the cigar lighter and the green light goes on, your TOMTOM will still not work when the batery is dead..get one real cheap on ebay.
Good luck

Low battery, won't charge

connect the garmin to your computer using the usb port. It will start charging then. For some reason when the battery goes dead in this unit the only way to charge it is with computer. the car adaptor will not work once the battery gets real low.

Turn off garmin

I just find it unbelievable that there is no off button on this watch. I dont want to use it as an everyday watch..its too big and ugly for that.Also you have to remember to turn off the gps as it will drain the watch overnight.You have to switch the gps on every time you do a run. I simple on and off button is all that is needed.It is just a matter of turning it on when you go for a run and you are ready to go. Same with all 'latest ' products..they give you the improvement over the last model but give you a downside...which will probably be corrected on the next incarnation....very clever marketing.!

My garmin 340 suddenly stopped working

Ummmmm "Low battery"....... not too hard to figure out. You need to charge it for several hours. If the battery is low it WILL go out on you and during that time, the battery may recover enough to come on briefly then go off again. Please charge your battery!

Nuvi 205 voice stopped working

I had the same problem. I went onto and attached the Nuvi to the computer using a cord that I had for my blackberry phone. Once connected, I turned on the Nuvi and ran the update tool. The update tool will reinstall the voices. This seemed to work the first time. I have had to do this twice now since I received the Nuvi 205 on December 26, 2008 (it's February 13, 2009)

Try taking the battery out for 30 secs or so and then replacing it. You'll find a couple of locks on the bottom of the laptop that will release it.
