Day 463 of self-isolation - TomTom update

TomTom update

On the way back from Beaverbrook, my TomTom kept shutting down, low battery, even though it was plugged into power from the car. No big deal, once I was on the M25, I can find my way home.

Even rechargeable batteries have a limited life. My TomTom XXL battery seems to have almost no life left, so I had a rummage round the internet.

I can take the device apart by peeling off the label at the bottom and removing two screws. Then it prises apart, and the battery can be replaced. The battery costs £4.99 on eBay.

I also updated the mapping, via the TomTom web site.
