Garmin Nuvi Recall Information - Some 200W, 250W, 260W and 7XX Units
Yes, it's true, Garmin has a recall on for some units from the following model numbers: 200W, 250W, 260W and the 7XX series (where the XX are two numbers). The recall stems form a battery issue from one of their suppliers where the battery can overheat. The recall will include up to 1.3 million units.
Garmin has a special recall page set up to check if your model is in the batch of units that are being recalled by looking up the serial number.
If your Nuvi is one that has the problem battery, you can print out a shipping label, ship it back to Garmin where they will insert a new battery, and return the unit to you.
