Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you. I'm sorry you're having problems. In order to assist you, I need to ask for more info.

1) How long have you owned the Garmin for, and when did the issue occur?

2) You mentioned the battery is dead- so I'm assuming you've tried plugging it into it's charger for 30 minutes or more to charge it?

Please elaborate and we can continue.

Sorry, I see that the unit was unused for a period of time and is 2-3 years old. I do need to know, however- how long you tried charging it for?

Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Please connect the Garmin D2 to the charger for 60 full minutes, then remove it. Press and hold the power button for 20 full seconds and release. Let me know if the device powers up.
