SOURCE: battery is fully charged on my 205 and yet it turns itself off

Can it be turn on when the device is attached to the cradle with electric supply?
If so, I think the battey is aged and it cannot be charged to the operating voltage to turn the device on.
A change of battery is required.
I had such a case recently.

I was having problems with the car charger CA-051, then, I used a T-Mobile charger, at first time worked, after that, the GPS Maagellan was dead. Is it possible that I have to order a new battery? or I...


Using non standard chargers is probably the problem. If the battery has suddenly become sogged since using this charger then it may have done more damage than you want to know about.
Was it the correct polarity +ve Tip? was it the right amperage?
Magellan are specific in recommending you only use their charger and with reason, its correctly made for it.

You can try the new battery angle, but get advice on the charger.
As a small note.. Car chargers do NOT fully recharge batteries in GPS. Use an AC or USB charger. The car charger is a maintenance power supply. Always fully charge the unit prior to use and do not plug to car power until engine has been started.
These are standard rules with all non hard wired GPS and phones, ( but not always in the manual, have to have service and new sales someway!)

My n20 gps some times does not search for sat signals and seams to be unable to find signals


the most common reason for this is a low battery
ALWAYS fully charge the battery before the trip either by the USB or the AC charger.Car charger does not fully charge but maintains a level of power only

If you plug it in to car power and start engine you will damage both the battery and the SIIRF chip

My GPS won't turn on or won't charge


Have you tried replacing the battery.
Wont charge? Sometimes if the battery is totally depleted even the charge light will not go on until the battery reaches a certain level of fill. Are you sure it isnt charging? A new battery will confirm its viability to be able to deliver service in future.

Recently when returning from a trip my C550 giving keptme the message "satellite unable to locate" (not the exact words) This went on for a week or more but suddenly started locating me from the satellite....


Low battery power is generally r4esponsible for loss of signal or low signal. Charge itr fully before use and plug into car power source ONLY AFTER staring the engine so as to avoid spike deamage. The car charger cannot fully charge the battery it is justn sufficient to maintain a level of charge . If the battery gets too low it cannot maintain a constant signal.
