n?vi Battery PCB Recall



Garmin is voluntarily recalling certain n?vi devices that contain a specific battery that was manufactured by the battery supplier within a limited date code range. Garmin has identified potential overheating issues when certain batteries manufactured by the third-party battery supplier within a limited date code range are used in certain Garmin n?vi models with a specific printed circuit board (PCB) design. It appears that the interaction of these factors can, in rare circumstances, increase the possibility of overheating, which may lead to a fire hazard. Although there have been no injuries or significant property damage caused by this issue, Garmin is taking this action out of an abundance of caution.



The recalled devices include a small subset of the following n?vi model numbers:



* n?vi 200W, 250W, & 260W

* n?vi 7xx (where xx is a two-digit number)



You can determine your n?vi model number by looking at the label on the back or bottom of your n?vi.

Thank you for the alert! Just checked with garmin.com and my battery is not in the recall. You need your serial number and model number to get the right answer.
