Question about Magellan Roadmate 760 GPS Receiver
I have Magellan 500 which was barley used but all of the sudden it does not power up anymore. I tried it with the car charger and with the AC adapter, same results.
I've got one that has a problem with the power connector. Look on the adapter thingy (has the female power socket along with the usb socket). With a pin, wiggle the center power pin. If it is loose, this is the problem. Carefully use a knife to open the adapter thingy (it's glued together). Go to Radio Shack/Fry's and get a replacement power female socket that solders to the little PC board in the adapter thingy. This will fix it. Allen
