Post Battery Life Problem Solved On My Garmin 750

I have had my Garmin 750 for three years. When new the battery would last about 2-hours, I found that to be much shorter than claimed. And about the last year it seems to last about 40-minutes. I began to dislike my GPS. Sad

When searching the Garmin site for battery replacement information I just found the info that it was not replaceable by the end user. What I could find for the costs at having them do the replacement was nearing $100.00. It is obvious that they sell new GPS units and want to sell them.

So, I started poking around the internet and found a video on battery replacement of this model and a vendor for the battery. It looked easy enough, as it was a plugin battery. I was dreading using the soldering iron on the Garmin - but great news as it is not needed.

Really folks, it took about the same skill level as changing the battery on a cell phone (at least the ones I have done). The total cost with shipping was $31.00.

Since I am a new user to these forums I don't know if it is a no-no to mention the retail establishment. But they can be found doing a Yahoo search.

Oh yes, my GPS now lasts 5.5 hours on a charge. Much better than it ever did. My relationship with my unit has been rekindled. Very Happy

Elikandme,

Bit agressive there Twisted Evil Do you know if this site allows mentioning commercial sites that "may" be a competitor. Pays to ask first.
Why not blah blah yourself on Yahoo or Google.

You can get better responce if you ask nicely. Smile
