Question about Magellan MAESTRO 3100 98083401 GPS Device
It turns on with the car but then cuts right off and won't stay on. There is one bar on the battery lines. If the battery is dead how can I keep it charged? The only way is to keep driving....HELP
Hi it sounds like the battery is at an end.
These can be replaced but you will have to take the unit in to get this done as it is difficult to buy spare battery i have never come across any up till now.
If it works whilst the car is running then you know the leads are ok.
it might just be that the battery has come loose from the connector.
What they dont tell you when you buy anything that has a rechargable battery that covers things like mobiles, laptops,gps,ipod, anything like that your supposed to let the battery go totally flat once a month untill their is no power left in it at all then do a complete recharge before you switch it on.
This prolongs the life of the battery and you should have no problems.
I get a lot of mobile customers with same problem i tell them the same.
If the batt is half flat and you charge it up then it just replaces half the charge and eventually you get bad cells in the battery as it is never using all the battery up. So if you can source another batt then just remember to let it go flat once a month then full charge before use then you will get no problems
