SOURCE: Memory Battery Died in my
Wildstreak, same happened to my GPSMAP 180. Its old and no longer supported by Garmin. I did call them and they gave me the model and number of the battery (mine is a Panasonic) Also advised that units are heat sealed so I am taking mine to a local electdronics shop that also sells Garmin and have them replace the battery.

You can find the battery here:
To open the case, scrape the sealant in the grove around the unit; then use a flat screwdriver, as wide as possible, that fits in the grove. Place the screwdriver on all sides and different places. Rotate the screwdriver gently until the glue tears and both gps housings can be separated.
To replace the battery you will need to be handy in soldering in tight spaces.
