Question about Garmin GPSMAP 180 GPS Receiver
I have a Garmin GPSMAP 180 and when I turn it on, the unit says that the internal battery is low. I lose all my saved waypoints. Can the internal battery be replaced easily by me with limited repair skills, and if so, what kind of battery do I need to purchase.
Thanks for any advise
Same problem. Remove the 8 screws, unsolder the battery from the circuit board, pry off leads, place electrical tape around edge of new battery, solder on the leads, solder leades on circuit board. Remember which side was up before soldier, close unit, you should be good to go.

Georgevb., Had the same problem, called Garmin, they no longer support 180.
Did tell me the battery is a Panasonic BR2032-1F2 or equivalent.
Also said case was heat sealed so I took mine to an electronics repair shop.
