Question about Magellan GPS Devices
It probably does need a battery replacement.
Even though it may show fully charged, and even test as fully charged, it may no longer have the capacity to deliver it for any sustained period.
If you think of a comparison between a 12V car battery, and a 12V alarm battery. Both show full charge, and the same output voltage, the difference is the available plate area. This is reduced due to degredation, and will no longer provide the same output.
Hope this helps.
If you want to make the battery last longer, charge for the recommended time (as was the first charge), then run the battery right down before charging.
If this solves the issue, Please rate as Fixya! thanks.
