    Try another cable first as this is the cheaper option.
    The heat could be expanding a contact or damaged part of the cable.

    Unless you are a "New" member, having used the Thanks button regularly is the quickest way to get help.

    This is standard Garmin poor engineering. Almost all automotive devices do this. At least, all of mine have.

    We assume you are using the correct Garmin Power cable for your Garmin DriveAssist 51 LMT-S
    I don't think replacing the battery is the solution, but if you feel it is worth the time & money ,that's your choice.
    I understand the ambient temperature effects the internal temperature of a vehicle dramatically (greenhouse effect) but surly once occupied and brought to a comfortable temperature there should be little effect on the device or cable. Does removing the device from the windscreen away from direct sun while parked change anything ?

    No that doesn't change anything. The problem persist

    What cable are you using, is it:
    1. The Garmin vehicle power adapter that was supplied with the unit?
    2. a USB only cable (e.g. USB C to USB mini)?
    3. Something else, if so what?

    I had the same problem with a nuvi 2595 unit. I consulted with a neighbor who is an electrical engineer and he explained that the batteries used in cell phones, tablets and gps units have liquid in them that when heated too high can prevent the battery from charging. I bought a mount that allows my unit to be mounted in front of the car's air conditioner vent which blows on the back of the nuvi unit. By the way, I live in Florida.

    Thanks for confirming, that is the correct cable. And was the other one you tried the same?

    Understanding your environment will help because we all live in different climates from snow to tropics and hot and cold could mean different things.
    What is approximately the temperature outside when it is hot and the device doesn't work?
    And what is the temperature at night when it works?
