Garmin has issued a voluntary recall of 1.25 million Nuvi personal navigation devices. The company says that “in rare circumstances” the Nuvi could be a fire hazard. The devices have a battery that may overheat when used in models with a certain circuit board.

Garmin will replace the battery in all affected products. The recall includes models 200W, 250W, 260W, and 7xx (xx is a two-digit number). “Garmin will replace the battery and insert a spacer on top of the battery next to the PCB before returning the nüvi to affected customers free of charge," the company said in a statement.

Owners of Garmin devices can also visit the company’s Web site to determine if their device is part of the recall.
