If your device is not having power, there are 3 factors to be checked. The battery, the charger and the device itself. Run a test on the three factors and you will be able to tell which has the fault and how to solve it.
Insert the battery in another device, then you try to charge it for some time, lets say about 2 hours, then you try to power the device on to see if it will power it on, if it powers it on, then it means your battery is alright. Put it back in the lowrance gps device and power it on.
Then you connect you charger to another device to see if it will charge. If it charges it, then it means the charger is alright but if it does not charge, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced with a new one, then you connect the new charger to your device to see if it will charge it and power it on, if it charges and powers it on, then that solves the problem, but if it does not, then you need to test the device itself.
Then you further go ahead to test the device by connecting it to a computer and its normal charger, then it means there is a problem with the connection port of the device is bad or there is an internal problem somewhere.
That should do the job for you.
