EVEN THOUGH MY LIGHTER PORTS ARE HOT MY UNIT WON'T CHARGE WHILE PLUGGED IN. I SHOW CONTINUITY TO THE CONNECTION ON THE WINDOW VACUUM DEVICE. THIS SHOULD MEAN THAT THERE IS SOMETING WRONG BEWENN CONECTIONS AND BATTERY. AM I RIGHT AND WHAT SHOULD I DO.
Yes you are correct, it looks like your accessory power socket is working.
1: try resetting the device, peel back the silver screen surround to find the reset button.
2: make sure it still charges from your home charger if you have one.
3: clean the plugs and charging socket on the device with an alcohol free CD wipe.
4: borrow a car charging cable if you know anyone with the same device or replace the cable if not.
message back if this is no help.

Vector sold to Black & Decker who then sold to Bacchus. The only manual I find with the same number you show is NOT yellow and has no USB connection. It is charged by a 110 volt wall wart charger that plugs into a receptacle on the unit, or a 12 volt cigar lighter cable that plugs into the 12 volt port on the unit. Here's a brochure for the model number you provoided:
Battery on my garmin c510 sat nan wount hold a charge how easy is it to change
Had the same problem. Fixed with a new battery. Takes the same as a Streetpilot c530 and can be purchased anywhere on line. A 10 minute job with a soldering iron.
1. Open face plate. Unscrew 4 screws. Remove battery connector and clip.
2. Unsolder the wires to the two speakers - 4 wires.
3. Remove the sticky wrap from the old battery and place around the new one (to stop it rattling).
4. Solder back the new speaker wires.
5. Plug in battery, reassemble unit and charge Garmin off PC wih usb cable.
Antenna not detected
Try docking the unit without the battery attached. The unit will recycle and that may solve the problem. You will, however, need to continue to dock the unit without the battery...
WE CHARGE THE MAGELLAN GPS AND TURN IT OFF. BUT WHEN WE GO TO USE IT AGAIN IT IS DEAD. I ONLY HAVE THE LIGHTER OUTLET TO HOOK UP FOR POWER SO WHEN I NEED TO PROGRAM IT IN THE HOUSE I DO NOT HAVE A WAY TO...
Most GPS units can be charged three different ways:
1. Connection to a computer via USB port
2. Connection to a automobile via cigarette lighter plug
3. Connection to a wall outlet via an AC adapter
Typically most GPS devices these days include only the USB cord. Some GPS units also include the cigarette lighter plug. For most GPS units the cigarette lighter plug and AC adapter are optional accessories have to be purchased in addition to the GPS.
You don't mention which model of Magellan GPS you have so I am not sure which cords your GPS should have included. It sounds like you have the cigarette lighter cord and the USB cord? I am sure that Magellan has an AC adapter available for your GPS. You will want to contact them directly (their website is http://www.magellangps.com) or visit an electronics store that sells Magellan GPS receivers (such as Best Buy™) to purchase the adapter.
However, most GPS receivers can be charged from the USB programming cord on the computer. However, ensure you are plugging the cord directly into a USB 2.0 on the computer itself NOT a port on a USB hub. (A USB hub may not output enough power to actually power and charge the GPS.)
You will also want to check and replace the fuse on the automobile plug.
I believe that both the USB and automobile cords should be charging the GPS. If neither adapter is charging the unit then the problem may be the GPS unit itself. The GPS may have a bad battery or problem with its charge circuitry. If that’s the case the unit may require factory service as the battery pack is generally not considered to be end user replaceable.

GARMIN STREET PILOT-330 GPS
The Street Pilot 330 comes with both a vehicle power cord and a USB cord for connecting the unit to the computer. If I understand you correctly the GPS isn't getting power from the vehicle power cord. Does the GPS charge if connected to a computer using the USB cable? If so the problem is likely the power cord or cigarette lighter socket you are using. If the GPS doesn't charge from USB port on your computer then the problem is likely the GPS itself.
If you determine that the cable is the source of the problem, check and replace the cable's fuse. You will probably also want to check and replace your vehicle fuses as the circuit that powers the cigarette lighter might have a blown fuse. If replacing the fuses doesn't solve the issue then you might need to replace the power cord.
