    It was working fine, I unplugged and put in glove compartment like I usually do when I am going to leave car unattended for a long period of time. I plugged in and started car... Magellan Maestro 3225 wouldn't start, charge, or work without being plugged in (it had a full charge). Since early today it worked when I turned on the car, I have to think it responded to the cable and in turn must be charging while I was running the car with it plugged in; therefore I feel its not the charging pin in the Magellan but the unit itself. I have been using my Magellan at least 4 days a week since August 2008.

Same here - the problem, at least with mine, is that the power pin on the unit has become loose and not making contact with the machine - thus will not charge most likely from pluging and unplugging it in multiple times and breaking the connection inside the unit - FWIW, this GPS a real piece of **** and I have already replaced it with a Garmin- I'm trying to figure out how to take it apart to see if I can solder the power pin back in place but it is not as easy as removing the 4 back screws...

Hi accidentaly remove application folder on Magellan maestro 3225 GPs now its can not hookup with my computer I save my GPS all file in my computer how how I reinstall application on GPS

If it won't connect then about all you can try is a hard reset. That will force it to reload all of the applications and reset it back to factory default condition. You would loose any waypoints and routes etc that you haven't saved but it should work just fine after that.

Does the battery hold a charge? Try pressing the RESET button. The Magellan site though very slow may be able to help or make recommendations...Now a days it may be cheaper to buy a new one than fix the old one
