Idea replacement battery for my satnav

3.0 out of 5 stars Replacement battery for Garmin Nuvi 14xx series
It was a calculated risk buying this as I have some anxiety about the long-term reliability of Garmin products, having previously experienced major problems with battery life and failed GPS antenna/receiver circuitry with a Nuvi 660.

That said, this is a review of the replacement battery, not the satnav for which it was destined ...

Bought to replace battery in Garmin Nuvi 1490 LMT. Followed the instructions on You Tube video and managed to replace the battery fairly easily. Bought the set of screwdrivers along with battery. Satnav now working well with new battery. Highly recommend this battery.

3.0 out of 5 stars Replacement battery for Garmin Nuvi 14xx series, 19 Dec 2013

This review is from: Replacement battery for Garmin Nuvi 1400, Nuvi 1450, Nuvi 1450, Nuvi 1490, Nuvi 1490T, Nuvi 1490T Pro, Nuvi 1490TV (Electronics)
It was a calculated risk buying this as I have some anxiety about the long-term reliability of Garmin products, having previously experienced major problems with battery life and failed GPS antenna/receiver circuitry with a Nuvi 660.

That said, this is a review of the replacement battery, not the satnav for which it was destined ...

Order processing was efficient and prompt. Consignment and delivery were within the (rather long) time-scale as stated.
Item was as described and packaging was adequate.
After a complex and fiddly operation to separate the plastic mouldings of the Nuvi, removal of the original Garmin battery was borderline traumatic as it was secured to the housing with double-sided tape. Once the connector was eased free, replacement and reassembly was straightforward.
I can't recommend *any* of the toolkits that are offered by various sellers of this type of battery as they are flimsy and a waste of money and time. Buy a single dedicated Torx driver set and use a thin plastic blade to separate the housing halves (I used the thin edge of the snap-closure lid taken from a 'Scotchlok' vehicle wiring repair connector).
The performance of the battery is still under review because I'm having the usual difficulties associated with USB-based 5v charging methods (the nuvi 1440T keeps thinking it's connected to a PC when plugged into a GARMIN manufactured car accessory socket adaptor) ... but that's a different kettle of fish.

Came on time, fitted easily ( but you need the little fitting kit ) and holds a full charge well. There is no point struggling on with an old worn out battery when these are so cheap.

My advice would be - buy the repair kit and watch the YouTube video.
After this, the whole operation takes 5 minutes.
Battery works great for now (1 week of usage) and I am more than happy to have my Garmin 1490T back to life.
