[UPDATED the title 2/4/2008 to reflect additional topic that fits in well here - Battery replacement/upgrade, since the disassembly procedure is the same and you might do both at the same time]
Doug Wilson has submitted a fantastic article he put together that details each step of his upgrade project – installing a headphone jack to his Mio C230. It is also a great way for many of us to be able to just peek inside without getting the screwdriver out.
I was hoping WordPress would allow me to import his submission, but it only imports the text, so for now Weblog readers, the next best thing – if you have Acrobat Reader (or another pdf display program) just click here to read his article exactly as he put it together. ( the article is also available in Word Doc format here )
Thank you for sharing this Doug!
Craig Dean (CD) has submitted a great article he and his father put together detailing each step of his upgrade project – installing a C220 battery into his Mio C230, resulting in almost 50% more output capacity!!
I find it interesting that the label on Doug’s battery stated the output capacity as 720 mAh, another gentleman stated that his was labelled 800 mAh, and CD’s is 850 mAh. This variation would account for why some people are VERY disappointed in the battery performance! The spare batteries for my iPaq looks to be the same dimensions yet the label states the capacity as 1500 mAh at the same 3.7 volts (too bad it doesn’t have the same wire and connector attached).
Thank you for sharing this Craig!
Is this a Mio mount; looks a lot different from mine? Question posed by bleep55 on 4/26/2008 and I agree, it doesn’t look mine either.
