Question about GPS
If you have the satnav plugged into the cigarette lighter socket and there's no power reaching the satnav it's possible that the fuse in the charger has blown.
First you need to check that the cigarette lighter socket is working but I assume you've done that. Then to check the fuse in the charger unscrew the ring at the end of the plug that goes in the cigarette lighter socket. The plug will come apart and you'll see the fuse. Be careful not to lose the silver nipple at the end of the plug. Replace the fuse and it should solve the problem. Also make sure the mini USB plug is fully pushed into the back of the satnav as this can sometimes cause problems. Even though it feels fully pushed in it may not be. Hopefully this will solve your problelm. If not you might need a new charger.
It's not good to let the battery run down too far in the satnav as sometimes this causes it to be unable to hold a charge again so if you don't get the charger working plug it into your computer and let it charge from it. This will take 8 hours approx. Also unplug your satnav charger before starting the car as you can get a surge of power when starting which can damage the satnav.

Have you check the fuse for the "aux power"?
