Replace the battery on a tomtom one


Just buy another GPS, a lot of devices have internal batteries and are not supposed to be changed/replaced, for the effort and the cost of the new battery and screw drivers and the time to pull it apart would be easier just to buy another second hand, plus if anything breaks while trying to fix it your stuffed

Garmin 201 forerunner no charge


That unit is probably 7-10 years old... it probably has a dead battery. either buy a new one or get out your special screw driver kit to see if the one inside can be ordered from someone like Batteries+ or Amazon.com

Not seeing it as a replaceable part - but...if you can take it apart and find a battery for it, why not? Start by taking it apart and taking the battery out, then check the battery for numbers, google those and see what you can find.
Good luck.

  1. Use the provided vehicle power cable that came with your GPS unit. The unit will charge while powered on and using the device as well as when the GPS unit is powered off and plugged into a running vehicle. About 3 hrs for a full charge.
  2. Use an AC power adaptor. Some units come with this power cable to plug the GPS unit into a wall outlet allowing the GPS unit to take a charge. For units that do not come with this cable, one can be purchased from Garmin's online store.
  3. For most units, the final way of charging the battery is to plug the GPS into a powered on computer with a USB cable2. This method of charging will be a trickle charge and it may take longer (like a full day) than the other two options, however it will still charge the battery. A USB cable is provided with a few GPS models. For those that don't come with this cable, one can either be ordered from the online store or you can use a standard USB to mini-USB cable that fits the unit and plugs into your computer.
1 - Please note that temperature can play an effect on the charging of a device. If the battery registers a temperature of 0°C and below or 45°C and above (32°F and 113°F

Garmin c330 battery replacement


The 3 wires are because the unit has a pcb on the battery which prevents over charging or shuts it off if the voltage falls too low. You can either use the pcb which is attached to the outside of the original battery (cut off the unit and reattach to the new battery with electrical tape) then solder the red and black wires to the appropriate Garmin wires or order a battery with built in pcb, If you do this, the green wire is not used, just solder the red and black wires from the plug-in connector to the new battery. It worked on my C330.

Garmin StreetPilot C330 GPS--Battery


The batteries on the units are not meant to be serviced by the unit. If you are not familiar with taking it apart, you may damage internal components in trying. If the unit needs service, it is best to return it to Garmin and let them take care of the repairs. As far as the battery not holding the charge, if you have not done so, charge the unit on the computer for a few hours. This sometimes helps.

New Garmin Streetpilot 340


I'm having similar problems. When I fiddle with the cord it gets power from the car battery, but only for a little while. I believe there may be a fault/break in the power cord, because it charges just fine on the USB link. I'm thinking of ordering another cord/mount.
