The battery on your Navigon 2100 GPS unit is located inside the device, and there isn't an exterior compartment in which to access it. That means if you want to deal with a dead battery you are going to have to disassemble the unit to replace the battery. The good news is that this can be completed in less than 10 minutes.

Turn the unit off and turn it over. Use your Phillips screwdriver to remove all screws on the back of the unit.
Insert the tip of your flathead screwdriver in the gap where the front and back halves of the unit meet. Work your way around the sides until the two halves separate.
Unplug the screen cable that runs from the screen (located in the front of the unit) to the main circuit board (located in the back of the unit). Set the front half aside.
Remove the screws on either side of the circuit board with your Phillips screwdriver and lift the board up to expose the battery underneath.
Unplug the battery cable from the board and remove the battery from the compartment.
Fit a new battery in the compartment, and reverse the steps for reassembly.
