Welcome, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you today!
The first thing we want to do .. Is attempt a hard reset of the device.

After completing the hard reset.
If it still wont charge, what we want to do next is check the charging cable, and also the physical port on the nuvi where the charging cable plugs in.
Does it feel loose when its plugged in? If you look inside it, are any of the small copper contacts broken or bent? If everything looks normal then this is a classic case of battery failure. Replacing the battery is in order.
You can order a battery replacement kit here

That kit includes the tools you need to replace the battery, the battery itself , and an instructional video.
If you have further questions or concerns, let me know.

I seen your reply, on a duplicate thread.. I closed it and hope you can respond here, on the original question.
When you say the battery is new.. How new?
Also, did you try the hard reset I mentioned?
