I saw this on another forum. May be of interest to someone here.

 

Garmin has just issued a product recall on some of the nüvi 200W,

250W, 260W & nüvi 7xx series models.

Quote to context: "...potential risk of battery overheating ... may

lead to a fire hazard."

 

Details here + model serial number check:

I'm unsure if the local agents are complying with the recall.

Check the garmap forums - they will - they donlt really have a choice - a recall is a recall.

 

But get this - GDA does not do battery changing! A procedure that takes 5 minutes! So they will be replacing complete units. Anyway I think this problem involved some circuitry as well so a repiar is definitely out the question locally!
