The battery does not charge anymore


Usually, the battery life can (quickly) decrease if your GPS is always plugged into a power source (even when not in use).
Like all such (lithium) batteries, to keep the battery healthy, it's better to charge it fully, then use / deplete it fully (while not plugged into a power source) and repeat the charge cycle.
If your battery doesn't charge anymore, you'll just have to use the GPS while it is plugged in. If that is even not possible (because the device actually use the battery to power it, and not the direct current from the charger), you may want to consider replacing the battery. Or, replace your GPS.

My unit shuts off whenever it wants even with the charger plugged in. When I try to turn it on it comes on for a few seconds and shuts off again.


Is the Unit being fully charged before using it. Your Unit should have a Reset on the bottom of the GPS. Use a paper clip and press into rest hole with the Unit turned on. It will now shut off, restart the Unit. Usually this will helps with a lot of the problems. Good Luck!!

Tried webupdater and the PC does not find the unit. Tried another Garmin and it worked. Bad device keeps shutting off or freezes at the agree button and then shuts itself off.


Have you fully charged the unit for a couple of hours with the car charger? If you charged it with the USB cable it will take 3 to 4 hours to fully charge...

Once charged go to www.MyGarmin.com and do a firmware update

Battery is fully charged on my 205 and yet it turns itself off


Can it be turn on when the device is attached to the cradle with electric supply?
If so, I think the battey is aged and it cannot be charged to the operating voltage to turn the device on.
A change of battery is required.
I had such a case recently.

UNIT WILL SHUT ITSELF OFF WHEN IN USE SOMETIMES AFTER 10 MINS SOMETIMES TURN BACK ON AND IT WORKS AGAIN SOMETIMES WON'T COME BACK UP FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS


I suspect that the power supply is not making a proper connection and comes loose in the socket, the gps unit then is forced to use battery power but since the battery is not fully charged yet when the battery power is to low the unit shuts down and will stay down till enough of a charge or the power supply gets bumped and makes a solid connection again.

Complete shut down


If the battery is fully charged, or you're using the car power adapter and the unit will not power up, you should take it to repairs.

The battery it good only for a couple of hours use just by itself. If You're running it only on battery power it will shut down in a while.
