Hi someone gave me one of this and everything works perfect except when i turn it on it says MEMORY battery LOW???? i have replaced the regular batteris but i dont know where or how to replace the memory batteries. I know its old but it was free and i got used to its simplicity. I was wondering if i i can upgrade it with memory cards or anything like that. Primarily my question is how can i put in a new memory batter

Google Garmin and go to the FAQ. Here is what I found...

Question: What do I do when my unit displays a 'Low Memory Battery' message?

Answer:

If this message is received on the Garmin device, it will need to be repaired. The GPS device will need to be returned to Garmin so the internal memory battery can be replaced. Please click here to contact Garmin Product Support to set up the repair.

Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Yup have one. Still occasionally get the same message. As DSlayer said, Garmin will give you a return auth number and you can send it in to get it replaced. I never did get mine sent in, fresh batteries seem to clear the alarm. If you have the serial/car cable for that unit, back up all your waypoints and tracks with your map software so in the event the battery does die all is not lost. Good unit, can't wait to save up for the new 'map & image' types out there.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
