It is most likely that the battery is totally sogged! That is you need a new one. Cease placing it in the car charger and starting the car when this is connected. A) it shortens the life of the battery and B)damages the satellite search chip.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 1200 series and it shut off by itself and will not turn back on. It was fully charged when it shut off. I tried holding the on/off button for 10 seconds to try to reset, but it still...


try and get it plugged into a computer using a USB data cable, if the unit comes on most likely all you need to do is go to www.garmin.com and run a software update off the webupdater. and also try holding the power button for 50-60 seconds

I have recently purchased the Garmin nuvi 765T and I have charged it and waited to use in the car but after a few seconds of turning it on, it turns itself off after showing the "Garmin" company...


Try to soft reset it by holding the power button for at least 20 seconds till it restarts.

If that doesn't help - try a master reset to factory defaults by holding the lower right corner during startup for at least 20 seconds. This will erase all user data and starts the Garmin in factory default.

If it restart I suggest updating the software to the latest version on Garmin.com

Have not used my Garmin since January 2011. Sitting on shelf. Plugged in to my car charger and would not turn on. Would this mean it needs charged?


After three months, I'm sure the internal battery needs to be charged. But even so, it should work when plugged into the car charger. The first thing you should do is check that the charger cord is connected properly at both ends. Mine has a green LED on the plug. If yours does, make sure that light goes on. Try jiggling the connectors at each end of the power cord. If it still doesn't work, the next thing to try is replacing the power cord. (Maybe you can borrow a power cord from a friend). If the power cord isn't the problem, I'm afraid the problem is in the Garmin itself. Good luck.

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.

My Nuvi255 will only work on external power (cigarette lighter) almost like there is no internal battery installed


Have you tried charging this through other sources such as a usb or ac charger (please ensure the unit is off when attached to power to enter charge mode) as it may be the cable itself faulty, if it still doesn;t hold charge then the unit is faulty and should be returned to your local store

I just unpacked my Garmin Nuvi 750. I plugged it in, played around a little, and left it to finish charging. Now, it won't turn on. At all. I connect it my car for power, and nothing. I plug it into...


Same thing happened to me. Just bought it off Ebay. Had a little charge on it then tried to charge via the car, nothing, then by USB for some hours. Has now turned itself off and can't turn it on. Obviously a dud battery. Ebay seller is yet to get back to me.

Fritzed Unit when antenna up


I have a similar problem but I can't turn the GPS off at all, even when the antenna is down. As far as the power on/off cycle, I found another link on this site that said to turn off WAAS while the GPS is off then when you turn it on the unit will not power cycle continuously. You loose the WAAS feature but the GPS and unit still works.

Will not take a charge


I have just the same problem. Initially the battery was flashing to say that it was low on charge even when it was plugged in, then it flashed that the battery was empty and switched itself off. When plugged in the green light comes on, but still cannot turn TomTom 710 on. Also it will not connect to the computer.
