We have now had the opportunity to review ten additional 310 units sent to us for repair that refuse to power up.

The common denominator from all customers is that they were using AC or DC Power Adapters when the problem occurred.

The units all had fried power chips and could create a situation where your batteries will heat up.

Hence the following warning:

"Please be aware that you should never attach the 310 to any AC or DC Vehicle Power Adaptor or AC Power Adapter THAT IS NOT A MAGELLAN PRODUCT MADE FOR THE 310. To do so will most likely fry the battery controller chip.  Symptom of a fried power chip would be a situation where your batteries heat up and/or the unit will not power up"

Always power your 310 with either rechargeable, or primary batteries like Alkaline or Lithium.
