GPS Repair Problems? Ask a GPS Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
How old is your Golf Buddy, please?
And has it ever been dropped, handled roughly, or gotten wet?
I'm sorry - I was paying some time to another case...
At 4 years it is out of warranty for sure.
It is also 'broken' - in terms of a serious problem with the circuitry, and/or with the battery.
At 4 years rechargeable batteries often go bad. On the other hand, the symptoms you describe *could* also be those of failed circuitry too... it's somewhat less likely though.
So you seem to have a choice between
A. general repair, hired
B. replacement of the battery only, as a first try, by yourself and at my guidance (at least as to the sources of a replacement battery)
C. repair as to the specific circuitry error, possibly after (B) fails.
and of course D. replacing the Golf Buddy.
Which of these would you like to try? I'd advise either A. or B. but D. might be preferable to you.
OK. Do you need any further advice then?

Well... perhaps. Would you like me to find the replacement battery for you?
I'm researching that now...
Here are some choices:
for about $9
for about $10
for about $14
for about $18 with tools for the replacement.
I have passed your cancellation request to Customer Support, which will take care of it.
