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.

The nuvi and Garmin Drive series devices do not have user replaceable batteries, with a few exceptions. The exceptions include the nuvi 500 series, 800 series, 805 series, and the nuvi 295W.
A replacement battery for the nuvi 500 series can be purchased on the Garmin website here.
The nuvi 800 & 805 series and the nuvi 295W use a replaceable Lithium-ion battery as well. Although the replacement battery for these devices is no longer available via the Garmin website, you may be able to purchase a replacement through a variety of dealers.
All other nuvi models do not have user replaceable batteries. These devices must be sent in to a Garmin approved repair facilities if a battery issue arises.

Battery inqueries

Batteries can last up to 2 years, depending on how often the battery is recharged. The more the battery is cycled (charge/discharged) will reduce its life.

You will know when the battery needs replaced when you find that the unit dies quickly even after being on the charger.

TracBack not saving to Favorites on Nuvi 500

I am sorry that I cannot solve your problem, but I can tell you I have the same one, Garmin knows about it, but ignores it, and if you clear your trip log before you create the track you want, it MIGHT work.
