    I found out that Raytheon factory is about 2 miles from my house in NH. I am bringing it down to them and they can tell me what can be done. Shouldn't have to replace a whole unit or drill to fix it. Maybe they can just replace the whole back piece. I will let you know. Thanks for the input. Glad someone else has the same problem as I.

I did open op the case, cutted the psoitive and negative power lines, drilled a suitible hole for at soft cable with 2 wires. Soldered and insulated the 2 wires. Finally I filled up around my drilled hole with epoxy and fitted a connector in the other end of the new wire. Works fine.

I did the same damn thing and am amazed this question is on the net. i bought a new system but plan on taking it back. the 365 was a pretty nice model and i'm just going to splice it straight to the power supply. but i was lucky, the two pin connector is the damaged one so drilling it out and splicing it SHOULD be easy. well see. at this point i have nothing to lose.

hope this helps.

GPS had fallen off glass and broken power connector port( 5 pins in metal frame) inside of GPS. I can not put power jack into GPS.


From the Magellan website, http://www.magellangps.com/support/warranty.asp, their policy on broken screens:

"Magellan will replace receivers with a broken display returned within the warranty period with a reconditioned unit of the same or comparable model at a reduced cost to customer. Customers with a broken display unit returned outside the warranty period will be given the opportunity to purchase a new unit at a reduced cost or reconditioned unit also at a reduced cost."

Garmin repair facility in Orange County


  • Find a decent electronic repair facility. I usually super glue the broken mini USB connector to the circuit board and then solder the four support legs of the USB connector. Then there are 5 pins on the USB connector which must be solder back to the circuit board. The two outer pins supply power to the I3 and the remainin inner pins are for data. If this is a recent purchase (less than a year) then I would call Garmin. Good luck.

Solved:Opened the iQue and used a heated knife to cut horizontally into the + pin and it comes like a U, upside down, from the circuit board, and the exterior side of it was broken. Used tiny plastic and sealant in the hollow space inside the connector and soldered thin copper wire (used for exploding dynamite) from the horizontal part towards the exterior.
