Question about Magellan Maestro 3250 GPS
If it shows on the indicator that you are in fact getting power to the GPS, you might want to open it and check the battery connections. If you need to replace the battery it is a:
t0052 Li-ion battery 3.7volts and 1100mAh

Does it shut off when your using it on the PC? If not, there is something not right with the car adapter. Also, just because it was plugged into the car adapter does not mean it was charging. Many cars will turn off the cigarette/accessory jack when the ignition is off or shut off after a short while to protect the car's battery from being run down. Try hooking it up the the PC overnight and leave the PC on. In the morning, disconnect the GPS and try using it. Does it still shut off? If so, the internal battery may be bad. If it works and doesn't shut down, you have a problem with it not charging in the car and the adapter may be bad.
Let me know, if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I would suggest you check the charger and get a test meter and read the voltage reading at its end.Sometimes over wear and tear the wire inside the charger snaps (or is on border of snapping which then will give you some reading on the tester when you play with the wire charger) and cause an open connection.Hope this helps else you have a bigger problem with the navigation itself.
