Magellan RoadMate 2055 Battery Replacement Kit with Tools Video Instructions Extended Life Battery a
Great Buy - Easy to change the battery! July follow the video instructions!
Looked at the video on line, looked like something I could do, so rather than toss my Magellan RoadMate 2055, I thought I'd give it a try....glad I did. The person on the video that I watched online seemed to have a hard time opening the case. I found the screwdriver and the tool very handy. Took me about 10 minutes from start to finish. The toughest time was getting the old battery out. It was snapped in real tight and there was a double-sided piece of tape holding it in place. Once I got it out, I found the new battery to be a little smaller, so I made makeshift piece of "double-sided" tape to secure the new battery in place. I'd suggest including a 1inch by 1inch piece of tape in the kit. That would be perfect! My Magellan is back in operation. I've read online that you should not ever try to upgrade the maps as that will kill it, and then you'll have to replace it. Seems the Magellan "life-time" map only lasts 3-years. I've had mine for about 4-years. I'll just live with the maps it has. In another 4-years, I'll toss it and buy another brand. Too bad, 'cause I really do like the Magellan, but there's just too much "bad" being talked about online. Thanks again for the kit, you've given my Magellan a new lease on life!
