NAV VI not turning on with bike

Been having a repeated issue with my Nav VI we’re I will switch the bike on and the Nav VI will remain dark. No matter how many times I switch the bike off and on the NAV will remain off. If I take it off the cradle and hold the button on the back down for 30 seconds or more it will reset and turn on. I thought it was s charging issue but it does it on a full charge. Fully updated and once it’s on I have no problems.

I have the problem with it not turning on but only when it's sat for a long time and has no charge on it. I don't know why it would run the battery down when it's off but it does. Are you sure it is getting charged by your cradle - maybe the problem is with the cradle?

After my bike sat for a time on a trickle charger, it took forever and odd tricks to get the Nav VI back to life. Last time I left it to go back South, I disconnected the Nav VI battery to see if that would help. I don't now have, or have ever had an electronic device that could be so stubborn to boot. Once it has a good charge and stays in the cradle, everything seems to be fine. Garmin and Grrrrrr both begin with a G.

I get a similar problem if the bike is turned on (but not started) and then turned off before the Nav VI has time to fully boot up. The only solution I have found for this is to remove the Nav from the cradle and remove the battery. I tried the "30 second" method, but to no avail.

Similar issue with the Nav V version...premature battery failure if it sits in the cradle for any length of time with out running the bike. Was informed by my dealer there is a 5 year battery warranty..called Garmin using the dealers special phone number given out by the dealer to contact Garmin with.. Bottom line battery replaced under warranty..

Same problem I've had - makes me wonder what the deal is. But normally once it has a charge, it boots up fairly quickly and with no issues.

Weird because I took it off once it would not boot up. I held the button on the back down for what seemed like a minute and it booted up. The charge showed fully charged. So i think the cradle works and holding down the button resets the Nav VI. I am pretty sure it happens more often when I am syncing the phone and the sena at the same time to the nav vI.

Have you plugged it into a computer yet?
If not, try.
Ensure you have Garmin Express installed first, it should recognize it.
