Assuming you have a ONE XL per the thread title, have a look at this one:Hi ,
I have exactly the same problem and it seems the only way out is to do the soldering, but can someone let me know which battery to use. The size has to be the same so it fits inside my Tom Tom. My old battery size is L=43mm X B=36mm X H9mm.
As you will have gathered from these threads, I doubt you'll ever find a replacement to those exact specs. Pick up the 3 wire version (on the new pack, the 1 yellow may be 1 white, instead) and clip the connector off the new pack fairly close to the pack, then solder your old wires/plug to the new unit. Your 2 black to the new pack's 1 black. Your 2 red to the new pack's 1 red.Thanks, my TomTom is One XL HD Traffic.It is fitted with a FIVE core battery plug, the cables are 2 RED, 1Yellow, 2 Black.
Have you tried pulling out the SIM card? It may be searching endlessly for GPRS signal, draining the battery in the process. I don't know if the Tomtom gives up on the search if there isn't a SIM card in it.I was disappointed though that the new battery doesn't last much longer than the original one did. I have read on other threads that the short battery life is normal for these units though aggreviating.
