2699, working perfectly OK a couple of days ago, now, dead battery 0% and won't charge.

How easy to have a look and possibly change the battery ?

Glad I've got the 2599 as a backup.

Seems to be charging now.

Nothing for the first 10 mins but now at 10% after half an hour on the PC. Now in a proper 5v wall socket.


Thought: Could it be because I plotted a route on Thursday then let it power down. It's been churning away in the background. Maybe it didn't power down properly.

Did you switch it OFF K, or just a quick press into standby?

Can't remember.

I fully charged it yesterday. If it's OK later then I could have left it on. Normally I let the 15 second countdown take over when I turn the ignition off but I seem to recall I may have said 'no' in a fit of madness.

Watch this space ........

Plan A - it's OK
Plan B - I know someone who has a spare DS61 going cheap
Plan C - Buy a new one

Do a Google on how to replace the battery, where to get one from etc so that you know what can be done when battery life becomes too short.

When the battery fully dies I'll just get a new one.

I found it odd that even when connected to car power it still didn't power up. Must use the battery so dead battery = dead unit.

It's been out of the car since Sunday midday, just checked it and it's still 90% charged so I must have left it in standby mode.
