Garmin 510 battery

Postby 39x25 » Tue Jun 24, 2014 3:04 pm

Anyone else having issues with the amount of battery shown?

Seems to go from 60% to 0% in a non-linear manner.

100% to 60% may take a week worth of use but leave it for a day or two and it will be at 0%.

This is a common observation on many different batteries and devises.
The battery level indicator is determined by the voltage drop as the battery drains. It is only an estimation.
This isn't a problem unique to Garmin or the 510.

I have an Edge 510 about 12 months older and now its battery life is very poor.
