GPS recalls haven't been nearly as common as some other battery-related recalls in recent years, but Garmin has now been hit with a fairly big one -- it's voluntarily recalling some 1.25 million nuvi units due to an overheating issue that could pose a fire hazard. The recall affects certain nuvi 200W, 250W, 260W, and 7xx models that use batteries from an unnamed third-party supplier and a specific PCB design, which Garmin says can "in rare circumstances, increase the possibility of overheating." While there's still been no reports of significant damage or injuries, Garmin is nonetheless advising anyone with an affected unit to stop using it immediately and return it for service -- hit up the link below to check if your nuvi is included in the recall.
