Battery indicator shows full charge but within a few minutes of taking off charge, a warning battery low message appears. Have replaced the battery but same issue. Any ideas appreciated

    Hi @Tankbuster
    For how long did you charge the device?

    Thanks, Vikram

    Have usually left it charging for a few hours but last night I left it connected to my computer usb overnight. Have disconnected it from the computer and left the display on, I'll see what happens and report back later today.

    Thanks for your input Vikramk

    battery down to a quarter after 40mins with sat nav just left with display on. Thats a lot better than previous, would you say its about normal for battery to drain over that time?

    Following cut outs & switching off itself, getting battery low messages. Charged on 240v for 2 days, reinstalled in vehicle - same thing.
    Suspect battery is stuffed, can you replace yourself ??
    Thanks
