Question about Navigon 7100 GPS Navigator GPS Receiver
How can I change the battery on my Navigon 7100 GPS? I tried instructions for a similar unit based on a Google search and opened it up but the 7100 is built differently; could not get it open and was afraid of breaking something. So I put it back together and run it only off the car cig lighter. I contacted two online vendors of the batteries and asked how to exchange, got no reply. Can anyone help? the unit works fairly well with antenna though maps are outdated and you can't get updates or service anymore.
The battery can be replaced but it will require you to remove the old one and find a matching voltage and sized battery on ebay. you will have to change the connector to the one off the original battery pack.
It has been a while since i have done one of this model but it can be done.

if your sd card is OK, there should be an update program on it, you have to go to windows ce on the unit to run this program. to do this hold the bottom right key while booting...

If your useing Windows XP or Vista,drivers arn't needed..Windows "sees" the gps unit as another drive.
If you want to use the logbook , the files are in excel format.
the owners manual shows where the files are stoerd on the memory card!!

I have same problem I went to their website. www.navigon.com/site/us/en/my_navigon. In there you register your device and also in freshmaps put your Freshmaps code to activate.once activate download updated software from the windows of maps and software in Navigon 3 windows.You will find picture of your device hit on that picture to downlaod software update in your computer to save to your desktop.It will take atleast 45 to 1 hour depend on speed don't turn off cmputer in between.
Than get 4 gb sd card put to slot to your computer either directly or through Card reader whichever it suits you .when card is in computer wait till it shows removable media inserted.
Than hit on icon on your computer desktop where you downlaoded software update, mesasage box will appear to download to sd card hit yes it will download entire software wait till it says downlaod complete.
After download complete go back to same website and hit on window says software updates hit on that and it will downlaod most updataed version of software to sd card.
After completion of downlaod completion romove sd card be carefull to check on that says eject sd card hit on that than remove the card after otherwise it will destroy the pogram in sd card.
Put your sd card to device and there you go it will work.
Since new software is large and it requires more space than old one ols card will not work even after download of new software.Please buy 4 gb sd new card and follow the procedure.Since new software consumes almost 2 gb I recommend to purchase 4 gb sd card .please don't buy micro sd card with adapter it won't work.
