Just push the antenna firmly back into the base; it pivots on a coax connector.
This is typical when you drop it.
The antenna is removable.

Two exact solutions to this problem. I'm a electrical engineer and have figured Magellan GPS chargers out(sneaky you know what's..)
1) Mini USB ports wear out. They do have spring loaded gold connections, but over time, dirt gets in there and causes a loss of connectivity, so take care of them and try and clean them if they need it.
2.) Magellan GPS auto chargers are not standard chargers. They use what's called a USB 2.0 Mini-B "TYPE-A" plug. The "type-A" is important. There are 5 little pins inside that mini connector. 1:Power, 2:Data -, 3:Data +, 4:Ground, and 5:Ground. That #4 ground is important(that's what makes their charge cable unique). A regular Mini-B USB cable (like the one you connect to your computer) does not have pin-4 (ground) connected. It's left floating in plastic. So you can spend your hard earned money (like I did) and buy a bunch of USB cables trying to find one to work, but it has to be USB 2.0 mini-B TYPE-A..don't forget. Also, the Magellan charger pushes 5.2 V at a short circuit current of 1.9 Amps. That's a lot of power. Standard chargers push about 500mA to 900mA of current. The higher the current, the faster the charge. But the main trick that Magellan uses is the damn TYPE-A cables. If you don't use type A. You'll get that message "you have connected to a USB..yada..yada...yada.." , bunch of milkylickers over there at Magellan.
