Garmin Nuvi GPS Recall

Hey guys I just got an email from Amazon telling me that some of the Garmin Nuvi GPS's got recalled.

Apparently some of them had some lithium ion batteries that are defective and can overheat, leak, turn into zombies and start eating peoples' brains, things like that...

Hah, but really, here's the link you can go to and check, if you're running a Nuvi like myself...

www.garmin.com/nuvibatterypcbrecall

orrr for more info...

Recalls Summary


Cheers!

Thanks for the tip. I just checked my 265w and it ended up being ok.

Oh yeah, I forgot about this thread..

Mine was fine but the last time I plugged it into the mother ship for an update it completely rebooted my unit losing all of my saved places and routes..

Never had that happen before..

Thats funny because every update I have done with our 265W clears all the routes that we have save but all the saved places are still there. And all the routes that we have had marked with the tracing function disapear too.

Thanks Jake for the heads up on the battery thing, our 265W was not recalled
