Question about Magellan RoadMate 3000T GPS Receiver

Power pin fell off inside of Magellan Roadmate 3000T

When I went to turn on my GPS, the low power dialogue came on. So I plugged in the charger and noticed no red light or green light dtection for charging. I touched the charger cord evr so slighly and nothing. I disconnected the power cord and picked up the unit and heard a little rattle inside, like something was loose inside. I've only used this GPS possibly thirty to maybe forty occasions. I need it for some upcoming trips next month and wondered can I get it fixed somewhere, possibly an electronics repair place.

Re: power pin fell off inside of Magellan Roadmate 3000T

I managed to solder my connector back in place. The ground trace broke away from the board so I had to install a jumper to ground. I put RTV on the connector to secure it after the repair.
Worked great for a few weeks until it was dropped again and lost power, something else has a broken connection.

Magellan RoadMate 3000T. When plugged into the cigarette lighter, I only get a little red light in the upper right corner. How do I turn it on? I can't understand their symbols. (it is a hand me down from...

Download the manual from here.

The LED in the upper right corner seems to be a charging indicator, so this means that the power supply via the cigarette lighter seems to be ok.

To switch it on, press and hold the power button for 3 or 10 seconds (depends on the state of the device - whether in sleep mode or off).

Magellan Roadmate 300T, bought new battery but it wont charge.

I have the same issue. The device just powers up and shows the Magellan logo and does not continue past that.

power pin probably came loose. If you can open up the unit and re-solder the power connector to the board. If you need more assistance re-post and I'll tell you in further detail. Also, make sure the end of your power cable is getting juice.. flow.. is hot? live? has power to it.
