How to change the battery on my Humminbird WeatherSense accessory?

I recently had the message my batter was low on my weathersense for the humminbird depth finders I have. Here is how to change the battery.
If the low voltage message for the weather sense displays on your fish finder, you will need to change the battery. Check the battery by removing the panel on the back of the accessory and the internal gasket by placing a flat head screwdriver between the back panel and the outer edge of the case. Gently remove the printed circuit board by lifting the board (with the end that has the two yellos posts closest together) up and then gently flip it over. Take a non metal object (like a sharpened #2 pencil) to loosen the battery and push the battery out of the battery holder. Replace with a new battery and re-assemble the circuit board, gasket and housing, being careful not to interfer with any electronic components.
The gasket must be in the correct postion and the back panel fully closed to prevent leaking and maintain the moisture-resistant properties of the unit.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crank baits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
