It would seem that you posted twice. Here is the link to your other post. with answer as below posted.

Hi,

Often devices that needs to store settings/configurationsrequire some sort of power (other than the main power) to retain saidinformation. This comes in the form of a Lithium battery (normally3.0v) something similar as shown below.

MESSAGE STATES THAT BATTERY IS LOW, AND KEEPS SHUTTING OFF. BATTERY SHOWN ON SCREEN AS DEAD.


plug it in to your computer via the usb cable for a few hours, the car and home chargers are not recommended for the initial charge as there only a trickle charge...if it still hasn't charged up using the usb cable, there is probably a problem with the usb port(charging port)

let me know how you make out after charging it via the usb cable that was supplied with the unit.

Hi, if USB connection is OK, you have to make hard reset after that download firmware 3.40 by Uploader (no Garmin WebUploader). Your Co will startup but your data will be lost. Jean

Tell me why it takes so long for my garmin to acquire a satelite. I have a NUVI250


Hello :

This could because of a software problem . Resetting your device could solve the problem .

Here is how to reset your device :

1:Turn the Nuvi on.

2:Touch the tools icon on the main screen. The tools icon is represented by a wrench surrounded by a blue circle.


3:Touch the "Settings" icon which appears as a wrench.

4:Push the "Restore" button at the bottom of the screen. A confirmation message will appear asking to confirm restoring the Nuvi to factory settings. Push yes to restore the factory settings

.............................................................................................

Here I'll tell about hard resetting but that could delete all saved data .

Turn off Garmin device. Press down on bottom right corner of the touchscreen [ Don't let go ] , and then power on the GPS unit. You should be prompted whether do you really want to erase all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press “Yes” to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode.

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE !

Data lost


Sounds like the memory battery ran low. Did you get a "Memory battery low" warning message when you switched it on? If so then that confirms it, and I'm afraid your waypoints are lost.

As for the memory battery it will take on some charge if you just put in fresh AA batteries. How much charge depends on the age of the GPS, mine is over 10 years old and the memory cell is pretty much dead now.

Grmin may or may not replace the cell for you depeniding on the age of the device. If you want to do it yourself it's a very fidldy job requiring some expertise with a fine pointied solderign iron. The case is held together with solicone sealant aroung the joining edges - there are no plastic catches - one piece of the case has a sort of trough around the edge that the other piece/side slots into and the trough was fileld with silicone sealant and the two pieces sandwiched together. It's not a very strong glue though so it can be prised apart with a fine knife and patience.

GPS 48 MEMORY LOSE


You can go to batteries plus or wherever and buy a new 3 volt battery for it. You will have to unsoder the old one and soder the new one back in. Original was a VL1220, I replaced with a Dantona Lith 1-2VLS
