SOURCE: Web Browser Plug-in Archos 605
There is a seller on ebay (name is luhahaca) that says he is an Archos official Plug-ins reseller. Just search for 605 Plug-ins on ebay. He sells a four pack for only $38.00. I bought and installed them and they work great. Really makes the Archos functional - the way it should come out of the box. Actually, (sadly) the way it does seem to come out of the box - I was disappointed when I received my plug-ins download. All 4 plug-ins = 2kb. Web browser with widgets, extended movie and music capabilities and Real player mode. It seems to me that all of this is already in the Archos, they simply charge extra for a key to access it. It's a shame. Totally worth the price if you have an Archos, but really too bad they feel the need to force their hand into your pocket after you've just given them hundreds of dollars. I think the unit would be reviewed better, and Archos wouldn't look so petty, if these features were just enabled right out of the box. (my opinion anyways)
Anyhow, I hope that answered your question!

I just found a place to buy a replacement battery (http://www.newmp3technology.com/605-30-battery.htm) and I was wondering if I can change it myself?

SOURCE: Unlock Parental code
I have an archos 605 with the same problem. The only difference is, is that i did not put a parental lock on. As it is new i just went into settings and press the parental control in the list but did not touch the no. key pad. now everytime i come out of the archos and go back into it the key pad pops up for a code which i never put in, in the first place. Is it different to clear it?

SOURCE: map code
Archos.com FAQ says contact Technical support which could be a long process on the phone unfortunately.
I have entered a valid map code during the installation process with the DVD but it is refused.There might be two reasons to this:
• Your map code might only be composed of 12 characters including an underlined digit/letter.
In this case, instead of typing the underlined character, enter a “&” before the character that is underlined (ex: “2C4” becomes “2&C4”).
• If your map code has 13 digits, reinstall your GPS software using the DVD.
After inserting the installation DVD, the installer does not launch automatically. What should I do?Explore the DVD with Windows Explorer and click on GPS_Installer.exe. This will automatically launch the installer.
Note: if there are no files on the DVD, please contact our Technical Support.
I cannot install the GPS software since I have the following message: “error license”.Please contact our Technical Support.
I bought the 605 GPS (as the bundle : The 605 and the GPS Accessory together). Do I have to use the installation DVD supplied with the device?No, you do not need to use the DVD as the GPS software and maps have already been installed and activated on the 605 GPS.
However, you may have to use it later to reinstall the GPS software if you have any problems with your GPS or have to format the disk of your Archos.

* Use the computer for this process that you always used for this archos
* Download the firware Upgrade 2.1
* Plug the Archos to Pc
* When the white screen comes up do format
* Wait until all done then put the firmware in to the root sector of the Archos
* Safely remove the usb for Archos from your pc first and then unplug the cable.
* Do not pick any option on the Archos screen
* Just turn it off from the power button by holding it until it turns off
* Wait about 5 minutes and plug in back to pc
* it will come up with white screen again but this time it will start Update you will see the progress bar moving wait until it is all done and it will shut off. Turn it back on Your archos will be back to normal.
