The thin metal surround can be removed after cutting sticky foil.
There are 2 screws holding the battery in place.Be carful removing metal surround,there will be wire through in slot.
Disconect battery lead from board,the battery can then be prised out,its pushed into a frame clamp.

Re: tom tom 500

Well I got to the battery, but still haven't figured out how to get it out. To get to where I got to first pop the front silver suround off then remove the 4 retaining screws and the body will come off, next cut the foil around the speaker and take out the 2 screws, you can then see the battery. Where to from here? please!!

Tom tom one not turning on used 3 months

I had some problems with the 920. It started to not turn on. The it just died completely. After opening the case and testing the battery. I concluded the battery was dead and Un-chargable.

Which is most likely the case with yours.
Try this first. Then contact customer support.
  1. Check that the battery is charged properly.
    Charge your device for at least 2 hours before trying to turn it on again. Make sure the charging light on your device is on.

  2. Remove the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, remove it.

  3. Reset your device.
    Use a straightened paper clip, or something similar, to push the reset button for 15 seconds. See the pictures below for where to find the reset button.

  4. Turn your device on.
    Press the On/off button for at least 5 seconds.

  5. Insert the SD card
    If your device uses an SD card, insert the SD card

Unless you are good with electronics. Then id change the battery myself. I used a cell phone battery.
It has worked for the last year.

Regards and I hope this helped.
