Note: There are several variants of this. Some of them have 2 screws on the bottom under the stickers. You'll need to remove those first.

nathanrenniewaldock is right... I cracked my screen before finding the hidden screws on the bottom. what a silly company to use the same name for different models!

I just cut the wires and soldered them together

Yep: I didn't have a clue that there were two tiny screws under the label on the bottom - Now I'm hoping that it will "snap" back together OK. Live and Learn whether you want to or not........ lol

Great demo. It was perfect for me

Dont be tempted to fit a higher capacity battery. They are slightly thicker. Tom Tom designed it so that there is space for the battery to swell which they often do. The larger capacity batteries leave no room for this to happen.

On the model above without the two screws under the label, gently pry the top and bottom of the screen surround up about 3mm to disengage the lugs. Now slide both sides down about 3mm. The sides of the screen surround will disengage from their locating lugs.
