  1. Order a new battery. It was LG Li-Ion 18650 3.7V 2400 mAh Rechargeable Battery with Tabs. Original battery is 1,800 mAh so the replacement should last longer.
  2. Take the screen cover (faceplate) off and unscrew 4 screws. You will need small Philips head screwdriver.
  3. Pull off the front of the GPS. Be carefull with the GPS antenna. Make sure you remember its position so it is easier for you to assemble it later.
  4. Unscrew 2 small screws holding metal battery retainer strip. The battery is behind it. Pull battery out and disconnect it from the board.
  5. Cut the heat shrink tube the battery is in and de-solder the joint.
  6. Solder new battery. A small 15W soldering iron will do the job perfectly. Make sure not to overheat the battery.
  7. Insulate the solder joints.
  8. Put the new battery inside a heat shrink tube. You can get it from HomeDepot. It is ¾ inch diameter.
  9. Use a heat source (I used a gas lighter) to “shrink” the tube. Again be careful not to overheat the battery as it may explode.
  10. Put battery back into instrument and screw the metal band back onto the battery.
  11. Assemble everything back together.
*NOTE* Lithium Ion batterys do not take heat well. Leaving your GPS unit on the dash on hot sunny days will decrease its expected lifespan.

How do i change the internal battery in a xog gps

There are four screws on the back (phillips #0) to unscrew. Batteries Plus has a replacement battery (part # PDA-192LI) they will have to change the connector from the old battery to the new battery. Plug it in and put it back together and it will work fine.

I looked at the manual online about how to change the battery but it only tells you what kind of battery you need. How do I get to the battery to change it on a c340 garmin gps?

The battery was not designed to be changed by the user. Attempting to do so may damage your GPS and almost certainly void your warranty. Your best bet would be to contact Garmin or your local authorized GPS retailer.

Changed the battery with an aftermarket one and unit wont work

Either the touchscreen has failed or you have accidentally disconnected the touchscreen flex cable. Many people break the flex connectors trying to change a battery. The LCD does not need to be disconnected in order to change a battery.

Battery inqueries

Batteries can last up to 2 years, depending on how often the battery is recharged. The more the battery is cycled (charge/discharged) will reduce its life.

You will know when the battery needs replaced when you find that the unit dies quickly even after being on the charger.

Cannot take Garmin c330 apart to change battery

The internal battery on a C330 is not user replaceable. You will need to return the GPS to Garmin to have the battery changed.
