Question about Magellan GPS 310 GPS Receiver
This could be a software problem, and resetting it might help, but it sounds like a hardware problem, maybe oxidation on some contacts, or possible a cracked solder joint in the power switch, or something like that. I read some reviews on this device, and saw mostly negative reviews and dissatisfied customers, more the most part. Here's the site:
I would normally recommend contacting Magellan Support, but after reading all the bad experiences people have had, I can't really recommend that, in this case, but you might be the lucky one.
You might take it apart and spray switches with electrical contact cleaner, and look for cracked solder joints, etc., but the problem could require servicing.
Good luck, hope this helps, and wish there was better news.
