Question about Magellan Meridian Gold GPS Receiver

1 Answer

I have hard wired my meridian gold to my car. The cigarette lighter connection was faulty so I spliced into the cabling near the craddle. I didn't know I was by-passing the curcuits in the junction box until it didn't work. In short I've put 12V direct into the handset. What have I fried?? And is it repairable?

Would it hurt to wire in a usb/lighter plugins to the existing cigarette lighter by splicing the red wire and the orange and black wire. is the orange/black wire for the ground


I suggest that you throw the lighter out the window and just plug the usb part into the lighter socket
but if you want to go ahead , the red wire will be the power wire and the black wire the ground wire
the other wire will probably be for the small light in the lighter edge to show you where the hole is in the dark

I purchased a used Cobra 19 DXIV cb radio that has a black & red wire with a fuse. I was told that the wires can be wired into the fuse box under my dash. How do I do this?


You may need a test light to do this.

1. Decide if you want the power to the radio to be full time or only when the key is on.

2. If you want part time the easiest power source to access is the cigarette lighter. You can either splice into the power wire going to the cigarette lighter (center lead) or you can get a cigarette lighter plug and install it on the end of your two power wires. Center is the positive. The plug costs about $4 and takes about 10 minutes to install.

3. If you want full time you will need to find a circuit that is hot at all times and splice into it.

Use a noise filter on the power as just about all circuits in the vehicle are liable to be noisy power circuits and this will show up in form of excessive static noise during radio operation.

The red with the fuse is your positive lead. Do not hook these up backwards as this will certainly ruin the radio.

Try docking the unit without the battery attached. The unit will recycle and that may solve the problem. You will, however, need to continue to dock the unit without the battery...
