    I have a portable electronic navigation system - a Pilot III from Garmin- which
    I use to find my way around the counties in the state where I work. It operates
    via batteries or by pluging it into the cigarette lighter.

    While using the navigation system, the batteries exploded. As I removed the
    batteries from the battery compartment, I accidently broke off the 1
    inch-by-half inch metal plate -with half-inch springs on it- attached to the
    edge of the battery compartment. I lost that part and and I need it replaced.

    I have been to Radio Shack, an auto parts accesory store, and a hardware store
    and none of them have that piece.

    Does anyone know how and where I can get this simple piece that has been
    getting considerbly more difficult to obtain than I had anticipated? Your help
    would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Digikey sells quite a few springs and contacts: Thank you very much for taking the time to respond to my message. Would you
    know where I could get any dual coil battery contacts?

    Where would you normally take the thing for repair anyway? Just ask
    them to order one for you.

    Good Luck!
