Question about Magellan Roadmate 760 GPS Receiver
After useing my roadmate 760, i blow a fuse in the cig lighter cord. I call customer support, they told me to use a 5 amp fuse. I was burning them up everytime I turned the unit on. I called customer support again, they said they don't have the manuals and couldn't tell me what fuse it takes. I put a 10amp fuse and know I'm frying the 15amp fuse in my car.
My God! The fuse is doing it's job!!!! When you have a short circuit, the increased amperage causes the fuse to blow. Increasing the rating of the fuse is very dangerous. It is like in the old days when a screw in fuse in your home blew and some idiots would replace it with a penny. Then when a problem occurred, a fire would start in the home wiring. You are headed for a major problem in your car. Send the unit in for servicing!!

I had the same problem, turns out the cigarette lighter adapter was the problem, I bought a new adapter and works fine now.
