Dear Valued L.L.Bean Customer,
Our records show you purchased or received the Garmin nüvi model number 250w, 755T, 760 or 780 (L.L.Bean# 0GBR2, 0GBR3, 0GQV8, 0HNA4) sold by L.L.Bean between February 13, 2008 and August 11, 2010. In cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Garmin® is recalling for repair certain models of the nüvi brand of portable automotive GPS products due to a potential risk of the battery overheating.
Garmin has identified potential overheating issues when certain batteries, manufactured by a third-party battery supplier, within a limited date code range, are used in certain Garmin nüvi models with a specific printed circuit board (PCB) design. The interaction of these factors can, in rare circumstances, increase the possibility of overheating, which may lead to a fire hazard.
Determine your nüvi model number by looking at the label on the back or bottom of your nüvi. You must provide this and other information to determine whether your nüvi is affected by this recall.
