How do you get to and replace fuse in power cord for rand McNally 710 gps

Deborah, most of the time the fuse is in the cigarette lighter. The end unscrews. However, if that fuse blew, you may have wiring that has shorted. Much more common to blow you lighter fuse, in the car. Happens with plugging in and turning the "lighter" body, and shorting the lighter socket.

The radio does not retain its memory if you switch off the car. Radio goes back to demo setting when you switch the car back on.

you need to connect the live wire to constant power supply its normally yellow or orange it needs to be wired to a constant power feed strait from the ignition or cigarete lighter plug

Does not charge in the car

Hi have you checked you cigarete lighter is working in the car if you still have the in car lighter then put this back into the holder and press it down as if you are going to use it then switch the ignition on and wait to see if the lighter pops up if it does check its hot if its not hot or dont pop up then the chances are you have blown a fuse so check all the fuses in the fuse box and replace any that are blown, if how ever it does pop up and does get hot then this would point towards a fault with the lead your using to charge the tomtom so replacing this will then solve your problem

How do I plug my Garmin into a Hyandai?

Most modern vehicles have more than one cigarette lighter socket, there are usually at least one extra for outboard accessories. If this is no the case then you nay have to install a socket multiplier, these are usually available anywhere that sell auto parts or accessories, it will plug into your current socket and provide you with however many sockets you require. (available in 2, 3, 4 socket configurations)
Or you can hard wire one of these multipliers into the car.

Hope this is of some help.

Can i charge my tom tom at home instead of through the cigaret lighter in the car

Yes, I have an old nokio phone charger with the correct connection and it charges fine using that. It will also charge up when connected via the USB cable to your Computer, obviously when it is switched on,

thanks for using FixYa

My Garmin Nuvi (200 I think) freezes..

My recomendation is to use the original accesory for cigarete lighter. I'll give you an example: when I connect my Nuvi 200 to any other USB cable (computer or home charger) its behaviour is like you said - it "says" that is connected to a computer and remains in stand by. But when I connect it to cigarette lighter (but note - the original one) the nuvi 200 recognize it as a car power source and works. The battery symbol disappear from screen and it works perfectly. When I turn off the engine or simply unplug the device from cigarette lighter (not from nuvi !) it recognizez that and ask me if I want tu turn it off on remains on on own battery. If I make no option the nuvi will turn off automatically after some seconds. So it recognize perfectly the car adapter and its behaviour is adapted to a car.

Use the backup cd you got with it. Make sure there is no SD card inserted and just run setup from the CD
