I don't know if this will help but here's a video on replacing the battery in a TomTom Start. Maybe you'll spot the location as the device is disassembled

If you remove the diode, there should be a cathode band on the board silkscreen indicating which end is which.
However, are you sure you have the right spec for the part? Often, it's a zener that smokes, not just a rectifier diode.
