    Please don't try to do this yourself. You risk damaging the LCD display. Do not follow any dissassembly video for a 7xx series Nuvi. They are NOT the same units, physically and you WILL damage your Nuvi 2xx(W). Many times, especially in the 2xx(W) series, the problem is a loose mini-USB jack and not the battery. If the mini-USB is loose, the battery will never charge, leading the owner to believe that the battery is defective. Don't turn a cheap repair into a costly one.

You are going to unplug your laptop and disconnect the battery.

Then you will have to open the case and find the little battery inside. This one is usually soldered, so you will have to unsold it.

Leave without power for have an hour, and the reinstall the batteries.

The password should be reset.

Check up the picture to help you locate the little battery.

Do you know where you got your battery?


I have successfully changed the battery in two Quest II units. While it may not be for some who are intimidated by the inner workings of electronic devices2_bing.gif, it is not that hard either. You will need a small Phillips head screwdriver. Removed the back by removing the 6 small Phillips head screws on the back. Use caution with the two screws that hold the endcap for the antenna. It is not a problem if the endcap comes off, but there is a small spring holding tension on the antenna and if it pops out, it is easily lost. Handle the two parts of the GPS gently as there are wires that joining the two sections. The battery is held into the back section of the GPS with some glue but it is easily removed with gentle prying. Use a small flatbladed screwdriver to remove the plug from the battery to the circuit board. This should be all that is needed with the old battery. A new battery can be obtained from www.batteryship.com. They sell the direct replacement for the Quest and Quest II GPS units. When you go to their website, there is a list of various devices they sell batteries for. Click on GPS. This will bring up a page for various manufacturers. Select Garmin, and look for Quest. I think the battery runs around $25.
After plugging the new battery in, you may want to use a small dab of glue to secure it to the back side of the unit like the original battery. Reassemble the unit, reversing the process with the front and the back. The Quest units have a rubber sealing gasket between the two sections. Be sure you inspect that for kinks before tightening the 6 small screws. I would suggest the screws be tightened down gradually so uniform pressure will be applied to the gasket. I would tighten one screw down partially then move to the opposite side and criss-cross the unit until all screws are snug. Again, inspect the gasket for proper seating and you are done.

Keeps saying to change batteries


It occurred lately with reloadable NiMh-batteries.
When I put in some alkaline batteries I had no problem.
I cleaned the contact surfaces of the NiMh-batteries and the contact surfaces in the camera. Up till now I have had no problems.
