took mine to a Battery plus store last week and they changed it for me...$3.89 out the door...
or Livorsi will exchange your old antenna for the update antenna for $185.00 + shipping

Or, throw the antenna in the garbage and wire it to your GPS.

I had problems soldering the batt back in, ended up having a terminal loose and had to send it in.

And weld them on in the correct orientation!

There was a thread on this subject in Technical a while back. One guy said he just super glued a new battery in. I tried that method as it seemed too easy. Didn't work. Soooo, back out it came and went to Batteries Plus for proper repair. If this doesnt work I will wire it to my GPS.

What a PITA design!
