In my 1200, the speaker is glued to the back and soldered into the board so there is no plug to undo. Just carefully find a position so that board doesn't pull on the speaker wire while it is open.

  • Unscrew the 2 screws on either side of the board.

For me, there were two screws, just located at the corners. One was near where the speaker is soldered to the board and the other was diagonally across the board where the GPS unit is soldered into the board.
