Customer Question

Good morning, I bought a Garmin 44LM in September 2014. I love it - unfortunately, a couple of days ago, when I plugged it into my car lighter, the screen stated 'charging battery'. I waited a while...nothing...left it plugged in until I got home (more than an hour later), it was still 'charging', and I could not access anything. I don't use the GPS regularly, but do like to have it with me - just in case...
Please advise. Thank you. Joyce

Welcome to Justanswer.com, my name is Dustin.
I'm sorry to hear about the issue you are having, I will do my best to help you resolve it.

To start with, lets try resetting the unit... The video below is very short, and shows you exactly how to reset the unit.

If the unit turns on after the reset, you should be good to go. As every once in a while the GPS just like any other device simply "freezes" and needs to be reset.

If you cant get the above steps to work after trying a few times, let me know and we can work on some other steps together.

If all goes well, please remember to return here and click and submit a 5 star rating to show I was able to help you fix the issue, thank you!
