Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,
Sorry to hear of any issue you are having with your device & battery.
To help you with this issue, may I ask:
1) WHERE was this replacement battery purchased (local or online)?
2) Do you have a NAME of your Golf Buddy device (such as "Tour" or "Pro")?
NOTE: If you see ANY requests for "additional services" - such as a phone call - please understand that these are sent BY THE SITE (and not me).Feel free to DECLINE any such offers, and continue in this text/chat form.
So were those ONLINE stores, or local?
OK - I'm looking at the Batteries+ listing (CLICK HERE) and see that they have TWO batteries listed - with different capacities (and part numbers).
Does the battery you got from them MATCH either of those (perhaps the higher capacity one)?
OK - so that would be the GPS10076 number - listed on the web page I linked you to, at the TOP of the page - is that CORRECT?
I only ask because I'm look at a different vendor (Batteryship.com) that specifically states on their page that this 1500mAh battery DOES NOT FIT the model DSC-GB300.
OK - would the folks at batteries+ be "good enough" to see if the can check the specifications of the OTHER battery on that page - which is lower capacity?
I know that SOMETIMES the images show do not reflect the actual location of the contacts.
You're quite welcome.
While you are doing that, I will continue to see if I can find a place that DOES have the correct battery.
Take Care, Greg A.
Please take a look at this battery - on Amazon.
It says it is 54 x 36 x 8 mm - which comes in at about 0.315 inches thick.
Also there are some statements in the REVIEWS that it is a TIGHT FIT (about 1/8 inch gap).
Let me know if that might work for you.
Thanks, ***** *****
Might I suggest sending another email (or two) - to the support folks at Golf Buddy?
I know they recently got rid of their phone support here in the US, so that is about all that is left - unless of course you want to try contacting the Canada division.
Their number is(###) ###-####/p>
Please let me know what you find.
And IF this has helped answer your question(s), please take a moment to rate MY service level (5-star is my goal) so that I get credit for my time helping you with this question. (that will close this question thread)You should see some "stars" (and SUBMIT button) to do that, but please let me know if you do NOT see them (you may have to REFRESH your screen) or can not use them.
Thanks, ***** *****--. .-(im)
