Garmin has announced a massive recall affecting 1.25 million Nuvi GPS devices. The recall is voluntary and it was announced due to faulty batteries which appear to present a fire hazard.
Several Nuvi series are being recalled, the 200W, 250W, 260W and the 7xx series. Garmin said it would replace the faulty batteries free of charge and insert a spacer on top of the battery, next to the PCB.
