Question about Magellan MAESTRO 3100 98083401 GPS Device
I left mine plugged into my truck with the power off for the last month. Now when I try to turn it on it will not come on. Have I burnt up the battery? Where can I take it in for repair?
My Magellan Maestro 3100 also had the same charge/power problem. After long non-use, I sometime had to charge it for an hour or so before it kicks-on. After having it for more than 7-8 months, I think my unit will not hold a charge. If you follow the owners manual and also try Magellan's website suggestion: http://www.magellangps.com/support/askmaggie.asp , you may want to ask for an RMA for return. I am hoping that it's just the battery. Since I am new to the greater DC area, I had to buy another GPS, while I wait Magellan's repair. In the meantime, I am trying a GARMIN. If Magellan can fix it, at least our family has a backup.

GPS units should never be permanently left in vehicles. The vehicle interiors get way too cold or hot depending on the climate you live in and is very damaging.
Try taking it indoors and connect it via the supplied a/c wall charger and see if it turns on.
