Try leaving the device plugged in overnight, even if it is claims to have a full charge. If that does not work the battery is probably no good anymore.

Well, I could but the unit is only five months old. Ould the problem have anything to do with the fact that it is not frequently?


If the device isn’t charged very frequently then yes this can have an effect on battery performance, but it seems highly unlikely that this would be the sole reason for the device not holding a charge considering it is only around 5 months old. If it is still under warranty I would try to get Garmin to replace the battery or even the device.
