Is there battery's in a garmin ?

Yes, it is a non-standard Lithium Ion rechargeable battery that generally has 300-500 charge/discharge cycles before it needs replacing. You can usually buy a two pack for under 30 dollars and several online battery dealers, or at Fryes Electronics.

How do I know when my battery on my nuvi 500 is finished? Thanks

When you plug out the charger you should see a battery indicator on the top right corner of the screen that says WHERE TO and VIEW MAP. If this is full the battery is charged. It's recommended that you charge it for 4 hours on a car charger or mains charger or 8 hours on a usb connection of a computer. When driving most people leave it on the car charger to keep the battery up.

My battery is 2 year's old and is now only lasting 30 minutes after fully re-charging.

Two years is actually pretty good for a rechargeable battery in regular/constant use.
Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries have around 500 recharge cycles and then will loose capacity very quickly as for your unit.

This internal Li-Ion battery will now need to be replaced.

Hope it helps.

Tomtom930 wont stay charged..cahnged the battery

it sounds like your power adapter isn't supplying enough power to the unit. You should be able to try switching out the adapter with another and see if that helps. If the doesn't help, then there may be a problem with the recharging circuit on your GPS. AT which point you should contact TomTom.

Magellan Roadmate 300T, bought new battery but it wont charge.

make sure green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

the following magellan800,860,2000,2200t,2500,3000,3050,3100,3140,4000,4040,4050 and the 6000t are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc powerport...i sell these power ports and will repair them for anyone thats notable to do it themselves.

you can get it repaired here
or buy the port here

The Nokia N 500 is not charging i had tried through usb & car charger I tried to charge it through USB and car chaeger. It does not charge.

When you plug the USB charger to the unit, does the Orange LED light up?
If the light is ON, then the problem could be the charging circuit or the battery is defective.
If the light is OFF, then the USB port has a cold solder (Solder crack)

Navigator on my nokia 500 doesn't work

Good news for users with the same problem- The solution is easier than you think :-)
When my Nokia 500 began to show the same issues that you mention here I quickly thought "What a waste of money and now here I am stuck with this useless device" but a little bit of research helped me find the solution; here you go:

Go to and follow the instructions there. Basically what you will be doing is to re-install (in some cases update) the software in your device. Once the process is finished, Viola! your GPS function will be restored (-;
Now, be aware that ALL your saved addresses will be gone, but I rather have that, than a GPS that is good for nothing.

Hope that helps guys!

Help Explorist 500 jammed (locked up) wont even turn off

To speed things up a bit with frozen Explorists, you can undo the battery cover and pull out the battery then replace and start again. I have had to do this many times.
