    My 296 won't charge. The display says "charge complete" but the battery icon shows empty. The battery really is empty. The only thing I'm sure of is that the problem is not with the battery... I have two new ones that it won't charge. The problem is obviously in the unit. Anybody need some extra batteries? I have 3.

If it does not show 'charging' when connected to power, then something may be wrong with the power cord. If it is the vehicle cord (the one with the cigarette lighter plug) check the fuse in the tip of the cord.

I used it 10 months ago. its been in the car ever since and when i tried to use it i get the garmin name and then it goes blank.


If this happens even when the unit is plugged into the power source (lighter) then you should replace the battery. You can search online for battery replacements and instructions. Then plug into your PC for garmin updates. Updates are important for Garmins.

Trying to charge my Garmin 396 with external power. The unit is showing "Battery Missing". However my battery is there.


I had this problem on an aftermarket battery I purchased last year. It worked well for several months but recently gave me the battery missing warning and would not operate the unit at all. I checked the voltage on my Garmin OEM and on the new one. The Garmin OEM, showed 8.1V on two readings, between the center and right terminals and about that between the two outer terminals. The OEM showed around 5.7 so that implied that it had some bad cells and not a broken wire. I tossed it and bought a new aftermarket unit last week. That one doesn't show a full charge and when I switched back to the Garmin battery it shows 00:00 time remaining, but still 8.1V. Maybe I should have just bought a new Garmin battery!

It sounds like the battery is the issue. Try leaving it plugged in over night. If that does not help, press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This will reset the device, and hopefully restore functionality. Consult the user guide for more info.

This place has the battery and tools come with it!. its super easy and way cheaper than buying a new garmin. 2 screws and unplug the old battery and plug in the new. I did mine and I never messed with the internals before.

You are out of luck. Garmin will only talk to and assist registered owners. The registered owner has to deregister the device before a new owner register it and update the maps.

Powerless garmin


When leaving the unit not powered up for so long, the internal battery may be damaged. The power supply will not start up if the internal battery is defective.

Sometimes the internal power supply may become defective in this case and must be replaced along with the battery. Contact the manufacture for details about how to get the unit serviced.

I had exactly the same problem with a 3 month old Zumo 550. Removed battery, waited a few minutes and replaced. System now poers on OK. All data on-board was retained.

GPSmap 60Csx power up problems


I had the problem where I ended up disassembling the Garmin and adding a small piece of plastic to the on/off button. For some reason the push button on the top does not reach the one on the circuit board.
