You cannot replace the battery.If you have a problem with the battery, please contact TomTom customer support. Don't forget that you can use your TomTom device in the car with the car charger and at home with the home charger or home dock even if you are having a problem with the battery.



Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. – I would greatly appreciate a FixYa! rating if the solution I provided fixed or helped you resolve your problem.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

    Yes you can. Purchased 62 piece security bit from Maplin, which contains bits to remove the screws on my Tomtom rider, 6 screws in total. Two screws are hidden under two small round stickers.

How do you replace the battery for a tom tom one


Before you undertake this exercise, make sure that you are confident with your ability to handle small and fiddly parts as the unit is pretty delicate and sensitive to static electricity.
You also want to make sure that you have a suitable replacement Li-Ion battery.
At your own risk, the following are the basic steps required for the TomTom One V3.
You need to very carefully:
0) Check that GPS is fully functional (even while plugged to a power source) to make sure that your replacement did not cause any existing issues.
1) Power off and remove all plugs and SD card if applicable
2) remove all (four) security screws with a special screwdriver
3) gently lift the casing away from the screen paying particular attention to any wiring like the speaker wires.
4) unplug the speaker so that you can remove the cover completely. (Remove any holding tapes as required)
5) unplug the battery pack (Li-Ion, 3.7V, 1200mA) which has a small connector with 3 wires from the motherboard. The battery is usually secured by double sided tape that needs to be gently unstuck.
6) plug the replacement battery with 1200mA or higher current ratings (higher current is better, lower is Ok but will deliver shorter usage time) and secure using (re-used) double-sided
tape.
7) Re-attach speaker
8) Re-assembled back cover but do not tighten the screws too hard!
9) Recharge the unit battery making sure the unit is still functional while plugged in to a power source (PC or USB charger).
10) Enjoy your revived GPS!

Hope it helps: let me know how you go!
