I have seen replacement batteries for the Quest GPS units on Ebay. Search for "Quest Battery" or "Quest GPS Battery". You may need to narrow your search but that will point you in the right direction. Another source is Batteryship.com. I have bought several batteries from them and have found their service outstanding.

My garmin quest will not come on even when powered by the car cradle. It flickers for a brief second, then fails.


This sounds like an old battery that has deteriorated to the point where the external power won't even turn the unit on. I have a fairly detailed description on FixYa of how to replace the Quest battery. Search for something like Quest Battery. It does involve opening the unit up. If you are not comfortable with the inner workings of electronic equipment, you will need to return it to Garmin.

How to change battery on my old Quest? And what type of battery do I have to bye?


I have successfully changed the battery in two Quest II units. While it may not be for some who are intimidated by the inner workings of electronic devices, it is not that hard either. You will need a small Phillips head screwdriver. Removed the back by removing the 6 small Phillips head screws on the back. Use caution with the two screws that hold the endcap for the antenna. It is not a problem if the endcap comes off, but there is a small spring holding tension on the antenna and if it pops out, it is easily lost. Handle the two parts of the GPS gently as there are wires that joining the two sections. The battery is held into the back section of the GPS with some glue but it is easily removed with gentle prying. Use a small flatbladed screwdriver to remove the plug from the battery to the circuit board. This should be all that is needed with the old battery. A new battery can be obtained from www.batteryship.com. They sell the direct replacement for the Quest and Quest II GPS units. When you go to their website, there is a list of various devices they sell batteries for. Click on GPS. This will bring up a page for various manufacturers. Select Garmin, and look for Quest. I think the battery runs around $25.
After plugging the new battery in, you may want to use a small dab of glue to secure it to the back side of the unit like the original battery. Reassemble the unit, reversing the process with the front and the back. The Quest units have a rubber sealing gasket between the two sections. Be sure you inspect that for kinks before tightening the 6 small screws. I would suggest the screws be tightened down gradually so uniform pressure will be applied to the gasket. I would tighten one screw down partially then move to the opposite side and criss-cross the unit until all screws are snug. Again, inspect the gasket for proper seating and you are done.

"Detail maps Don't Support Routing" in Garmin Quest


I too have a Garmin Quest and yesterday felt like throwing it against the wall because of the above problem. I found the solution eventually. When you download the maps from the Garmin Maps page, where you select the maps download, make sure that the checkbox to "Include route calculation data" is ticked before downloading your maps. Also make sure that the total memory required for the number of maps selected does not exceed the available memory on your Quest. If you try to fit more information into your Quest than it can receive then you are bound to have some problems. The Quests seems to have different memory specifications. According to the USA spec the memory is only 128mb, the Garmin site says 115mb and the box that my Quest came in says that it has 243mb.

Garmin Quest 1 won't start up


My Quest had the same problem, I took it apart to see what I could see, 6 black screws on the back. What i found is that if I unplugged the battery and plugged it back in it would power on one time but not again. So I just left my battery unplugged and it works great from the car cradle all of the time. The clock resets but when it links to the satellites it gets the correct time again. Hope this helps you.

Quest Battery


A battery for a Sony Clie N610C works perfectly, everything fits and its easy work to do. Just cut the leads off of your old battery and then solder them to the Clie battery (its on a little circuit board) and then install, my Quest II now has a functioning battery 15 minutes later.
