I havew the same problem but the thing is i upgraded it and as soon as i upgrade it it wont charge anymore i always get a result of battery low, sleep mode everytime i turn it on i even bough a new car charger (universal) for this please help

I pushed the reset button, on the side,during the brief moment that it stays powered up. Now it is staying on with the wall plug.
I'll let that stay on for a while and then try to keep charging it with it turned off.

How to charge low battery


The Nuvi uses a standard USB connector. You can try charging it with the USB cable attached to your computer or to a USB phone charger. If it still won't charge fully, the battery needs replaced.

Can I charge the magellin GPS using a wall charger, plugged into the USB port on the GPS unit if I had rechargeable batteries in it? Or will it blow up? Lol


Yes your magelon already has rechargeable batterys so when in your car you keep it plugeg in all the time.I had a adapter plug with the same voltage output but the positive negitive is backwards.If while pluged into your y fi cord turn on the magelon go to settings you should be able to see the battery leavel if it is stuck on full charge then the y fi cord isnt working but if it is charging from low bar to top bar it will work if not you can buy a wall charger made just for that and again you dont need to replace the batterys unless it wont hold a charge for longe when removed from the car but that is usual for those gps,s not to hold a charge for long when out of the car thats just how it is.

Forerunner 305 keeps beeping, turning on and off every 5 seconds


I think I had the same problem. You do not write if your device were connected to the PC. My device was, and I finally got the suspicision, that it died because the battery was so low, that it crashed when the PC polled it as an usb unit.
So, I connected the unit directly to the charger unit that came with the unit, and now it works. So, try to connect directly to your charger, when your battery is totally drained.

My GPS won't turn on or won't charge


Have you tried replacing the battery.
Wont charge? Sometimes if the battery is totally depleted even the charge light will not go on until the battery reaches a certain level of fill. Are you sure it isnt charging? A new battery will confirm its viability to be able to deliver service in future.

Gps wont turn on without it being connected to chargers


This means that the internal battery of the gps system is completely dead and can not hold a charge. All you will need to do is replace the battery and it should work like new. The battery is fairly cheap to buy and replace.

Low battery, won't charge


connect the garmin to your computer using the usb port. It will start charging then. For some reason when the battery goes dead in this unit the only way to charge it is with computer. the car adaptor will not work once the battery gets real low.
