Well, holding down the right bottom corner of the screen definitely resets the unit but unfortunately, that's all it did. The unit stills powers up, then powers down. This is unit fully charged, don't understand.

Yes, there is a way to reset it. You can try the reset button under the faceplate, or a Master Reset. Keep in mind, a Master Reset WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR FAVORITES. In order to do a Master Reset the unit must be off. Press and hold the bottom right of the screen, then press the on button. Keep pressing the screen until the unit asks if you are sure you want to reset. Follow the prompts. To use the reset button, you must remove the faceplate carefully (put your fingernail or another object in the indentation on the top of the faceplate, and pull it toward you). Then press the reset button on the right hand side of the unit.

Could be a problem with the memory card. Please try to remove that then power up and see if the issue is resolved. If not, it could be a problem with the internal circuitry. If this is the case, then unfortunately, there is no other go except to get the device service.

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

How do I change the battery on a tomtom go 530


Replacing the TomTom Go 530's battery is actually not all that hard as this video demonstrates:
The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to do this yourself if you'd like. See: http://www.newpower99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=TOMTOM+GO+530&Show=ExtInfo I swapped the battery of a friend's dying GPS using the aforementioned kit and all went well. His Go 530 is back up and running smoothly.
Hope this Helps, aaron

IT is a xxl 530 s tomtom. Do you keep the unit


While in drive view, tap the screen on the blue status bar, on the GPS signal strength. A new screen appears showing the battery charge level at the top right corner.

When plugged into power screen displays the garmin logo and a computer with the garmin 530 connected to usb. it seems to charge and works when unpluged until battery runs out. i then have to plug it back...


whne you plug it in through the usb cable the unit is charging but is waiting for you to do something to the software of load something like mp3s. Why are you not using the 12V cable in your vehicle to keep the battery charged.

Power Switch will not turn my Rhino 530 HCx on


When I try to turn it on it comes up with the “rino” initialization screen and buzzes/vibrates at 5 second intervals. It never goes past this screen. Occasionally, for about 1 second a small white bar will appear across the bottom saying “0%. I’ve recharged the Li battery and got the same result. I’ve tried it while connected to the charger. Same result. I’ve tried using the optional 4 AA battery pack with fresh alkaline batteries. Same result. Did the factory reboot (page/enter/power buttons). Same – except instead of a buzz/vibrate I get the tone every 5 seconds. Have to remove battery to turn off.

Contacted Garmin tech support today (10/22) - hope to hear from them soon.

Can not turn on! my garmin nuvi 200w I think it is locked,


if ther battery went totally flat place it on charge for an hour or so to revive it. Max battery life in storage is 4 days with a good battery.

Charging it even tho the charge light may not show should build up enough charge to eventually show the light and allow you to turn it on. It should remain on charge for 5hrs.

Other possibility is a collapsed cell in battery, replace the battery
