Hello All,

I am a utility contractor in Portland Oregon. My trucks all have the 3000T and this is an oh so common problem. I found an electronics store here in Oregon called Frys Electronics. To repair the DC plug you will need to replace it with a new one. It is a 1.3mm dc port/jack and if soldering it you will need to have a min. of a 40 watt soldering iron and need to order a narrow long tiped replacement tip for the iron. You can find all your parts needed at frys.com or I can FWD you all the info. Oh the ground strap is reuseable and I have not been able to find a replacement and Megellan sucks at selling their parts. There is also an awsome bunch of guys that have been very helpful @ NORVAC in Tigard OR. I wish you all luck.

The hole of +- joint for external connection cord was broken


I have found my friend who is very familiar in electionic and small appliances to help me. I can fix it too, but unfortunately I do not have any soldering tools and parts here. I will bring it to Hong Kong and let my friend to fix it. It's very cheap if we find anyone to fix it in China where Magellan is assembled . Thanks.

Power pin fell off inside of Magellan Roadmate 3000T


I managed to solder my connector back in place. The ground trace broke away from the board so I had to install a jumper to ground. I put RTV on the connector to secure it after the repair.
Worked great for a few weeks until it was dropped again and lost power, something else has a broken connection.

When the unit is off, can you see a line where the screen is possibly cracked? look close. If you can your LCD is busted and it needs to be replaced. Is the sound working fine? Will respond after answers.
