Question about Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS Receiver
I've had the unit for less than a year. It worked just fine until now.
I have not used it for about three weeks, it was in the car glove box.. Today I tried to turn it on. No luck. A sales rep says the battery may need to be charged.
I plug it into the car outlet every time I use it. Why then sould it need recharging. I turn it off each time I use it.

Check for voltage at the end that plugs into the cradle. If no voltage there, check glass fuse inside end that plugs into car plug. If there is voltage at the cradle end and it still doesn't turn on then it's the cradle. The cradle fails over a short time inside the cradle plug. You can hard solder the cable end to the cradle circuit board, which is a delicate procedure which I have perfected but I am an electronics person. If you want to buy a new cradle it will fix your problem for turning on the gps but I recomend a cable tie on the cradle cable end to stop the strain on the connector so the new cradle connector will last a long time.
