I own a Magellan myself and I have found this same situation. I had let the fuse come loose in the unit.
Try this -
Try something else in the lighter.
2- if the lighter is good - try this
3- the Magellan uses a mini USB plug - - using a mini USB plug - plug the unit into your pc and run the software that came with the unit. Try using a wall plug to charge the battery. If your unit is only used 5 times you may be able to return it. I had this same problem and used a MINI- USB cell phone plug for the WALL unit - 110 electrical and it worked to charge my unit. So best of luck. The problem seems to just be a dead battery that requires an overnight charge from the wall plug for it or a cell phone charger substitute

This is a known issue with thid unit. I would contact Magellan about a replacement if you have had it less than a year.
