Maybe it's not charged enough:

Question:
How does temperature affect the power and charge of my device?
--> Answer: All of our units that have a rechargeable battery contain something inside the battery called a thermistor. If the thermistor inside the battery registers a temperature at or below 0°C or at or above 45°C1 (32 °F and 113 °F respectively)1 the charging mechanism within the unit will shut off. When the unit is operating outside of this temperature range the unit will operate solely off of the external power source and will not charge the battery.
When the unit is within the 32 °F and 113 °F temperature range, the external power source will power the unit and charge the battery. The unit's charger will always provide 100% to the unit and send any extra power to charge the battery.
As a preventative measure do not leave your device in direct sunlight. By keeping the device out of direct sunlight the unit is more likely to charge when getting into a hot vehicle.
The best thing to do if your device is not powering on in the vehicle, or your battery is only lasting 30 minutes is to charge the unit overnight by using either an AC adapter or USB Cable attached to a computer. Charging from a USB cable connected to a computer will charge the unit at 30-50% of the rate of which it would charge if plugged into a 12-volt vehicle power cable.

1. Temperatures within the vehicle generally tend to be warmer than the temperature outside of the vehicle.

    Where is the battery

    I checked ebay for it and only found chargers for it, no battery listed for it.

    I checked a vendor Batteryship.com off of Ebay, and they did not have your 4 year old model number listed as such.

    I checked Garmin.com and they say that 'Repair Services Are No Longer Available' for the Street Pilot unit. And certain models of the Street Pilot are repairable, but your number was not listed.



    Sorry about that.

    Also, I noticed that it costs $99 for service for a StreetPilot 2720, which yours is a 2729.

    Their warranty is 90 days on service, if you could get it for your navigator.

Cold solder joint inside expands and contracts turning the device on and off. Could also be a firmware problem, first try updating your device. If that doesn't work then you have to be rather skilled at soldering small electronics.

Unless it is a very expensive GPS that is out of warranty, I would probably replace it.
