1) Using a small Philps screwdriver, remove the two screws from the top of the back case cover (near the head phone jack) and unscrew the two remaining screws at the bottom of the back case cover.

2) Carefully wedge a guitar pick, or a small Flat Head screwdriver from the side of the unit, in between the two housings in the middle, unclipping the case clips, using your fingers, carefully pry open the back case cover.

3) Disconnect the power cable by gently pulling on the cable, if needed use the Flat Head screwdriver or needle nose pliers to carefully pull the connector out.

4) Using your finger or the tip of the screwdriver, carefully remove the battery from the glue inside the case cover.

5) Plug in the new battery by pushing the connector into the socket; use the tip of the screw driver if needed. Make sure the battery fits within the guide brackets and does not get in the way of the screw holes. Snap the cover back with the rest of the device, and reinstall the four screws. Charge the new battery for a minimum of 3 hours before the first use.

I have bought a new battery for Mp3 Zen Touch (as Creative no longer provides this service) and I cannot get the screws out, in fact they have now lost the head and I cannot do anything. What kind of solution do you have?

How do I open battery compartment & install batteries in ChoiceMMed Oxywatch CF309 which is a Pulse Oxymeter

I have the same model. Flip unit ove so you can see bottom. Hold your thumb on the side with the arrows (but don't wrap your thumb around too much. Just enough to hold that side.) Hold the other side with your index finger. Squeeze thumb and finger together while pulling back towards you on Thumb side. Hope that helps.

Unit shuts down after about one minute.

When you leave a Nuvi on a charger for several hours and don't see full green bars, this is an indication that the battery is defective. Most Nuvi batteries last about 2 years. Most of the batteries have a date code of 2007. I would have the battery replaced as soon as possible as it can bloat and crack the case open. More info can be found here:

Unit comes "on" for approx. 30 sec, then turns "off". battery indicates approx. 25%

If the unit has been on the charger for several hours and you still only get a reading of 25%, the battery must be replaced. Please see this link:

"Battery missing"on screen,but Unit is new out of box.

Before you do anything with your Garmin you should register it on line ay the link below. If you don't nothing will work correctly. Garmin installs a key when you register your product and you also get personal one on one service. Please rate me if this was helpful, Thanks, Sea Breeze
