garmin nuvi

Owners of Garmin GPS devices out there might want to take note that the company has just announced that they’re recalling a good 1.25 million nuvi navigation units due to the possibility of faulty batteries. According to the press release, the problem is related to defective third-party batteries which in rare circumstances could increase the chances of overheating, possibly leading to a fire hazard. Affected models include the 200W, 250W, 260W, 7xx, and the 7xxT models. Garmin has put up a page in order to help owners determine if their unit has been recalled. Garmin claims that the issue has been identified in less than ten cases, and so far none of the incidents have caused significant property damage or injuries, and hopefully the situation will remain that way.
