READ THIS ENTIRE POSTING BEFORE STARTING! Remove power, turn off GPS and remove memory card. To open the Tomtom One case, take out the 4 torx screws on the back. Find someone with a very stiff thumbnail and start in the center of the top of the GPS (end with the ON/OFF button). Push the stiff finernail into the center of the crack where the grey and dark plastics come together. When the fingernail has penetrated the crack, move the fingernail to either side of the GPS. At the edge of the GPS, move the fingernail back and forth until you feel a snap and the plastic clip releases. Follow this procedure for the other side on top of the GPS. Now run the fingernail down each side along the crack until the other clips release. At this point gently remove the dark colored back (contains the battery) and the grey front (contains the electronics and screen). Do not attempt to seperate the front and back unless all clips have unsnapped. Unplug and replace battery. If the battery has some charge in it, you should be able to power the GPS up and confirm that the battery has been properly installed. Re-assemble by placing the bottom of the screen into the dark plastic back then gently push the top in until all clips have snapped back together and there are no gaps where the grey and dark plastics come together. Note: If a fingernail of sufficient size and/or strength is not available, then you will have to purchase a spreader tool (thin short blade) to insert into the crack. Many GPS battery site suppliers sell the tool kits to accomplish this. Remember not to force the removal or re-assembly of the plastic case.

The battery is charged when the unit is connected via USB to a computer. Tomtom recommends charging 2 hours the first time.

    Oops I misread your question, You cannot change the battery, it is a rechargable lithium ion battery internal to the unit.

How to change the battery


The battery in the TomTom GPS deviceicon1.png is not (readily/easily) consumer removable - replaceable .. i.e. it is not like how you'd replace a battery in your digital camera.

How to change battery for my remote for my tom tom go 920


The battery is "hard wired in and it takes special tools to open the GPS and replace it. In short it must go back to Tomtom for service and battery replacements.

How do I change the battery on a tomtom go 530


Replacing the TomTom Go 530's battery is actually not all that hard as this video demonstrates:
The company that produced the video sells a kit which includes the battery and tools necessary to do this yourself if you'd like. See: http://www.newpower99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=TOMTOM+GO+530&Show=ExtInfo I swapped the battery of a friend's dying GPS using the aforementioned kit and all went well. His Go 530 is back up and running smoothly.
Hope this Helps, aaron
