Re: advice

If your tomtom is out of warranty &
if you are sure you want to do this then:

unclip the plastic fascia on the front of your tomtom.
Unscrew the 4x T8s screws, 1 covered by a black void label.
Once the outer shell is off, Gentley peel off the metalic foil anti tamper / void sticker on the bottom, exposing 4x more T6s, unscrew them, you can also disconnect the external GPS connector, Unscrew the 2x T6s that secure the speaker, pull the speaker away from the metal chasis, or disconnect via the black & red connector, bend open the metal flaps, this will expose the battery, pull it out & disconnect the 3way connector, NOW FIT THE NEW ONE & DO THE PROCESS IN REVERSE !!!

It took me 20mins first time round,

Dont prod & probe the circuits!!!

Good Luck! Your gonna need it!

Let us know how it turns out!

My Tomtom 300 Go won't charge?

It appears that the battery will not hold a (good) charge anymore. If it is still under warranty, contact TomTom to address that problem. They may replace the unit for you.
It is not unusual for (rechargeable) batteries to loose it's capability to hold a good charge if it is plugged in (to a power source) all the time, even while it is not in use.

Battery tomtom 700

I took out the battery in my tomtom go 700 by following the information in the links below. These links are for changing the battery in a tomtom 300, but it's all I could find and as it turned out the 700 was almost identical to the 300. Also, there were some good photos that helped. The first link is the instructions and the 2nd link has the photos. Good luck!

Tomtom300 gps mains charging +

1= My battery is flat, but when i put it on charge in the house it doesnt charge and no green light comes on, on my sat nav why would this be?

Could be your house charger is bad or the power connector on the back of the Tomtom is bad.

2= But when i put it in car charge it works perfect 'Y'?

You are using the "power shoe" to charge the battery. For a test unplug the power cord from the power shoe and hook it to the back of the Tomtom. If this work then the house charger is bad. If this doesn't work then the Tomtom rear power connector is bad

3= If ever i have to change battery how is this done?

You will have to remove the faceplate and disassemble the Tomtom in order to get to the battery. Or you can find a shop that repairs small electronic. Find the battery on Ebay.
