    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...

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
