    The same problem as 'tietop2'.

    Battery will not hold charge at all.

    There are meant to be indicators on the screen that show the state of the battery but these are not present.

    Device works fine when attached to cigarette lighter in car.

    Research has led me to battery number li18650H but I do not know if this is the correct replacement or where to get hold of one.

    I am not even sure if the battery is at fault or the machine is faulty. I Bought it 2nd hand a few days ago.

Hello Tiptoe,

I'm not sure if these are the answers.

I finally heard from Blaupunkt and have the part number you require:

  • Apologies for the delay, there has been a change of part number and I
    couldn't check the pricing information due to website problems.
  • The part number for the battery is 8619 003 386, and the price including
    VAT and delivery is £24.40
  • Please don't hesitate to contact us should you wish to order one. We
    accept all major credit and debit cards as payment.
  • Tel. 01249 817370 Fax. 01249 817346
However, research leads me to believe that the battery is not at fault. The battery charging circuit may have 'lost' the battery because it was discharged completely. As suggested by the following I found online.
  • If a Li-ion battery is left discharged after use, the self-discharge will further drain the pack and eventually trip the protection circuit at about 2.5 volts per cell. At this point, the charger will no longer recognize the battery and the pack appears dead. Only specialized equipment or advanced battery analyzer will be able to re-activate the protection circuit and recharge the battery.
    Charge for about 30 minutes before storage if the Li-ion battery is depleted.
    Do not stockpile lithium-ion batteries; and avoid buying dated stock. The aging process cannot be reversed and cycling will not improve.
  • The self-discharge of the lithium-ion battery is 5% in the first 24 hours after charge, and then reduces to 1% to 2% per month thereafter. The safety circuit adds about 3%.
  • High cycle count and aging have little effect on the self-discharge of lithium-based batteries.
It suggests to me that a specialist will be able to get the unit to 'accept' the old battery again. Putting in a new battery will not solve the problem in itself.

Hope I have helped.

I need usb kabel for travelpilot lucca mp3

The Travelpilot Lucca does not have the capability to be connected by USB cable. The connector socket on the bottom of the device is intended for a cradle built into a car that provides connectivity to compatible Blaupunkt car radios. It is a proprietary connector unsuited for PCs.
MP3 files are transported to the Lucca via SD cards only.

Garmin doesnt work whilst charging

I have experienced similar with my missus's Garmin. It appears that if you use a USB data cable (in car or mains), it doesn't let you use the device. However, if you use the supplied in-car power adapter, it allows you to continue to use it.
I cannot confirm this however, but give it a go.

Tom Tom One won't find satalites

sounds like a typical TOMTOM!

i would suspect that your battery is not getting charged properly before your trip The DC does not produce sufficient reserves to maintain a full chartge and so from time to time the signal will drop out and as ther battery depletes it gives wrong info and takes you on a journey to the land of the lost. Barc to Lisbon is a long Journey and unless you are charging inbetween stops at your hotel then your battery is very low. Charge it and it should work a lot better.

Tomtom300 gps mains charging +

1= My battery is flat, but when i put it on charge in the house it doesnt charge and no green light comes on, on my sat nav why would this be?

Could be your house charger is bad or the power connector on the back of the Tomtom is bad.

2= But when i put it in car charge it works perfect 'Y'?

You are using the "power shoe" to charge the battery. For a test unplug the power cord from the power shoe and hook it to the back of the Tomtom. If this work then the house charger is bad. If this doesn't work then the Tomtom rear power connector is bad

3= If ever i have to change battery how is this done?

You will have to remove the faceplate and disassemble the Tomtom in order to get to the battery. Or you can find a shop that repairs small electronic. Find the battery on Ebay.

Re battery life??

the battery should last 3/4 hours without a charger.

I think tomtom are aware of a ton of units with faulty batteries / poor life span.

arrange for it to be returned asap.
