Got the battery today. Surgery was a success!

The patient functions fine and is now recharging in my recovery charging area .

Congratulations! A double bonus...not only did you resuscitate the 'patient' but you kept him out of the landfill by doing so.

That's true. Overall, the "surgery" was easy. The DVD that came with my kit was for a different model than mine (I think a garmin nuvi 200 instead of my 260), but the process was very similar. The orginal battery was stuck on tight with mounting tape, so I had to use a butter knife and give a little force to remove.

Wow. My initial post on the "GPS Surgery" is almost 4 yrs ago. How time slips by.

The replacement battery and my old Garmin nuvi 260 is still going strong. I have a Lifetime Map Update that I purchased for $100 a few years back. Post surgery, the GPS is still the only one I really need .
