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.

Clarion NICE P2000 Battery Recall


Looks like the recently announced Clarion NICE P2000 has some battery issues, like a lot of other electronic gizmos lately. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission the batteries are overheating:

" The N.I.C.E. P200 is a black portable navigation and entertainment device that can be attached to a vehicle’s windshield. The device has a 4-inch touch screen LCD monitor and contains one lithium battery. “Clarion” and “N.I.C.E. P200” are printed on the device. “Clarion NAVBATTERY,” “Rechargeable Li-Polymer Battery,” and “Made in Korea” are printed on the battery. Only N.I.C.E. P200 units with serial numbers ending in “UE” or “UF” are affected by this recall. The serial number is located on a white label on the back of the device."

The company is sending out new batteries to users who send in their old ones.
