Try the car charger.
Make sure green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails
following Magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 3000, 3050,
4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and the 6000 are known to have faulty dc
connectors...if your Magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...

Guys, most likely the litium battery is eol. Buy a new litium 3 volts battery for 3-4 euro's with soldering points . Use a pair of scissors, note the plus and minus side of the poles and carefully cut out the battery leaving enough metal to solder a replacement battery. Solder the replacement battery, and the problem is fixed. You're ready for another 6 years of fun saving 300 USD for a new GPS!

Look after the antenakabel if the kabel is a little bit broken water coms inside thae kabel an the signal gets lower.
The GPS antenna with the 300 is not a GPS receiver unit like all the later Raymarine units and is no longer made. However the unit will accept input from a GPS receiver with Seatalk output. So you could use a 112, 120 or 125 receiver.
