Question about Magellan MAESTRO 3100 98083401 GPS Device

1 Answer

When I tap on the screen, the gps does not do what I have tapped

I have a magellen maestro 3100. I lent it to someone who took it on an airplane. It worked when they arrived. I tried to use it since they have come back home and when I tried to put in the address, it would take a long time to go to another screen and it was not what I asked it to do. I tried putting in the zip code and it would take a few minutes to take each number and then it wouldn't be the zip code that I asked for. I just turned it on again, trying to get the the main menu and I keep getting points of interest, which I have not asked for. I have reset it several times, still no luck. I would appreciate any help. I've had this gps for a little over a year, yet I have not used it that much.

The stinger from my car charger has broken off

this is very common problem with this and many model of magellans.

disregard the test for charging if you know your power port is broken and go to the bottom for further help

try the car charger2_bing.gif.

make sure green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

the following magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050 and the 6000 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...

you can get help to repair it here
or buy the power port here

if you need further help, just let me know.
