Charging Garmin 350 battery

How do I know when my Garmin Nuvi 350 is fully charged? It shows all green in the space, but the yellow bar is still in the middle. does this mean that it is not yet fully charged? The picture in the manual shows it to be all green without the yelllow bar. I am comfused.

    Thanks for your helped. I have since learned that even though the yellow bar is still in the middle, if the entire area is green, it is fully charged.

    I haven't used my Nuvi 350 for several months and it's dead. I hooked it up to my computer and it still doesn't turn on. How long do I need to wait before it has enough power to turn on?

I guess it should be fully green, it takes several hours, and you wont kill it if you let it charge overnight.

Garmin Nuvii 55 LM battery icon color meaning


There are usually 4 side by side green bars if the battery is fully charged. You can think of each bar as 25% power, so (4) bars is 100%, (3) bars is 75%, (2) bars is 50% and (1) bar is 25%.

My Garmin Nuvi 1300 is turned off and charging. It charged all night and still says its charging. Will it ever read fully charged?


Most likely not. I've been repairing the 1300 series for several years and I've never seen it. The older units would say "battery charge complete". I would go by the green battery icon in the upper right corner of the screen at the main menu. There should be 4 green bars to be fully charged. Of course to see them, you have to unplug the charger.

Show charging symbols


Your question was posted under the Nuvi 680 GPS, so I am assuming this is the model that you have.

On the main screen, you will see a green battery status indicator in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. The battery is divided into 4 parts. Each part represents 1/4 power. So if you have one green bar, that indicates that the battery has 1/4 of power left. If there are 3 bars, that indicates that there is 3/4 power left.

When the unit is charging, you will see a yellow lightning bolt appear over the green battery status icon.

When the lightning bolt is not there, this means the unit is running off of the battery.

When leaving the unit to charge, press and hold the power button until you see that the screen says Charging Battery. A few seconds later, the screen will go blank to save energy.

Pressing the screen again later will either say Charging Battery or Battery Charge Complete.

Try fully charging the unit and leaving it stationary for about 20-30 minutes if you still dont lock satellites try giving the unit a firmware updates using Garmins WebUpdater software here is a link.

No battery status Garmin 760


Went to Best Buy and they didn't know how to get the bar up either but said that the unit should be charged in 3 to 4 hours. So, when i unplugged the unit from the wall...the battery status showed up. I guess it doesn't show when the unit is plugged into the AC charger. Now, all is well.

Battery Charging, Nuvi 35


Charge the unit over night, Plug in the AC charger and you should see a lightning bolt over the battery bar graph display.

With the charger plugged in, gently press and hold the on/off power until the screen goes black and displays the text "Charging battery". After a few seconds, the screen will go black to conserve power. At any time, you can press the screen and it will light up saying its still charging.

If you let it go over night, when you touch the screen, it will say Charging Complete and you can then remove the charger. You should have full green bars on the battery indicator.

New 350 garmin, how long do I charge it Ac ?


Plug the charger into the mini-usb jack. The unit should turn on and when you come to the main menu, you should see a lightning bolt over the battery bar graph. This indicates that it is charging. If you don't plan on using it and want to charge it over night, if your Nuvi has a push down power switch on the top, press and hold it briefly until it goes to a black screen and says charging. If your Nuvi has a slide switch, slide it to the left until you get the same charging screen. A few seconds later, the screen will go dark but if you touch the screen, it will light up again and say its charging and go dark again. After several hours, when you go to touch the screen it will say Charging Complete". Yiu will also notice then when you go to use it, you will see ALL of the green bars on the battery bar graph will be lit. No, you can not overcharge it.
