What I did for mine was to go down to RadioShack (I was desperate) and buy an AC/DC converter that you can plug in the wall and then plug your car charger into. Works like a charm. Not very expensive either (under $10 if I remember) and worth the investment. The unit won't charge from the USB. It's not designed to do that.
To get the destination map to show on the screen, click below the route flag in the little grey area, then click "fit to screen." Hopefully this helps. I will check my unit to be double sure a little later and post any updates as necessary.

It may be the battery is totally depleted and this will take a few hours to recover sufficient charge to get it operating or even to turn on..

The answer to you other question is not known by me but I will hazzard a guess and say select the demo mode after the address is entered. that is what most other GPS models do to see the trace of the route.

We are flying to Palm Springs, CA in Nov. and want to use our Amcor 3900 Navigator. When I put the disc in my computer it asked me to save it to a Drive but wouldn't allow me to go further. How can I...


If you live in the us you dont have to upload anything unless you just want the new maps.(if the case then unlock the sd card)All of the 3900 sold in the us had all states on the sd card.
If you dont live in the us then get a cheap new sd card and try the process you did before again.
I do not know if the amcor servers are still online cause i purchaced the new software that had the maps on it(IGO 8) whitch could be an option if all else fails

What is the use for the USB cord that comes with this unit?


USB cord helps to hook up your GPS system to your PC for charging as well as transfer music, photos and other data ( only if these functions are available in your unit).

Update for AMCOR 3900 GPS


First you have to get the updated software.(igo8 is what i bought)
Look around for on that has the newest maps included It will be cheaper than purchasing separate.(you also will get free updates later when you buy the software.)
hook up gps to comp via usb.(with the software card in of coarse)
go into the flash drive (not sd) using the comp and look fotr a text file called "IGOPATH" and copy it to your desktop and open it.
Change the "Navigate" line under moduals to the exe location on the sd card.
then write it back to gps and reboot gps by the side switch.
You have now updated the armcor3900.

Just bought it and it won't come on?


I don't believe this model charges via hooking it up to a computer. I think it has to be plugged into the cigarette lighte of a car, or via an a/c adaptor. I use an a/c adaptor I bought on ebay for my portable cd player. It has a couple of different settings and it just happens that the cd player and the amcor 3900 use the same tip and voltage setting. Of course, after a year of use, my unit no longer locks onto the satellite signal so I am probably going to have to replace mine. Oh well, it worked great up until this week!
