Garmin has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain models of Garmin's nüvi® brand of portable automotive GPS products due to a potential risk of battery overheating. Garmin has identified potential overheating issues when certain batteries manufactured by the third-party battery supplier within a limited date code range are used in certain Garmin nüvi models with a specific printed circuit board (PCB) design. It appears that the interaction of these factors can, in rare circumstances, increase the possibility of overheating, which may lead to a fire hazard.

The recalled devices include a small subset of the following nüvi model numbers:
• nüvi 200W, 250W, and 260W
• nüvi 7xx and 7xxT (where xx is a two-digit number)

Check your model number here~
