No battery status in the screen of Garmin 255. I just bought a new Garmin 255, before charging, it can not on, meaning, the battrey is empty, that is fine. Pluging the car charger, the unit can turn...


The battery status only shows up when the satnav is disconnected from the charger. Your first charge should be a continuous charge until the battery is full. This can be done by connecting it to your computer for 8 hours approximately or 4 hours to your car cigarette lighter socket or 4 hours to an, optional extra, mains charger.

My Garmin doesn't seem to know where it is.


Give a full 12 hour charge. For the location, go into the main menu and set your location for whereever you want. It must have clear view of the sky to work. It should be on the windshield or dash, in a vertical position.

Garmin nuvi 765 lithium battery will not hold a charge more than 15 minutes!


This is kind of a late response, but this post may help other people. I had the same issue and was ready to have Garmin exchange my battery until I called them today and spoke to Tech support. They helped me upgrade the firmware on the unit (didnt take long) and so far the problem has been resolved. I have had it on for two hours without fully charging it, which is better than before when it only stayed on for about 20 minutes. I recommend that people with this issue call them first since it appears to be a common issue with this model nuvi.

Nuvi 200 GPS


We did not have a charger to plug in the GPS to charge, so my husband plugged it into a battery charger. I guess the battery charger was low, so it drained the unit rather than charging it. It was so low it would not come on again. I have an electric charger that adapts the car charger into AC current, so I tried that and the unit came on. Problem solved and the GPS is working again. Thanks for responding.

I have a nuvi 200 that wont run when it is hooked up to a power supply


The Nuvi 200 only has a 5 hour battery. Once charged, it can be removed from the charger, but the battery will only last 5 hours. Can you plug it into the car charger and navigate while charging BEFORE the battery dies? If so, and you don't have to remove the charger, you can leave the unit plugged in while you navigate without damage to the unit.
