Tom Tom XL battery died and now placing onto computer to recharge and it doesn't seem to be responding - what should I do

Leave it on charge on the computer and if it does not still come on, then you try to fix it in another gps device and try to charge it on there, if it still does not hold a charge, then it means you will have to replace the battery, because the cells are weak and cannot hold a charge.

After plugging in the usb to charge it on my computer, it is not holding its charge as it goes off after usb is removed

The battery is bad and is not holding a charge that is why the gps goes off as soon as you disconnect it from the computer. Replace the battery and the gps will work perfectly fine once again.
That should do the job. hope this information helped

Garmin GPS will not hold a charge. Symbol at bottom screen of what I believe to be a wire and computer

To use a unit that will not hold a charge, you must use the Garmin power cable. If you don't have one, you should be able to order a replacement from Garmin or purchase one at your local electronics store.

Our garmin gps will not hold a charge--you can charge it for a long time but then it will only work for a couple of minutes

reset GPS ( hold down speed indicator and go through the menues and clear the memory), call Garmin

Gps turns on and then turns right off. maybe the battery is loose inside?

Try a full overnight charge and see how long the unit holds charge, normally this should be about 5 hours.

It is possible that your battery is faulty and not holding its charge this can happen with age or another fault that has occured.

You will need to get hold of a new battery or check out this website as it is possible to damage the screen if you don't do it correctly.

Battery not holding charge

hi dave_hanc93

you say its not holding a charge, but is it charging?

plug the charger in and make sure the light is on on the charger, then on the map screen, tap the screen where the satellites are. on that screen on the top right is the charge indicator. is it green and moving from left to right? if not, then its not charging.

try hooking it up to the home dock to your computer and check and see if its charging on the home dock.

let me know how you make out.

My Nextar GPS doesn't hold a charge and I'm not sure how to update my nextar GPS

Your battery most likely has cell dammage, this prevents the battery from holding any acceptable charge. You can take the device to a batteries plus and they might be able to refresh the battery to hold an charge, if under a year, send back to the manufacturer. Since you did not provide a model number there are different ways to update the GPS, here is the company support site.
