Fatal error in Mother Board
Hi. I am new to this forum thing but hope I can get some help. I have a Magellan Explorist XL which I purchased about 3 years ago. The unit has only done about 20 hours work and crashed twice in the first 18 months which I was able to overcome and reset. It then crashed a third time which I could not overcome so I took the unit to the Magellan dealer in Perth only to be told that the motherboard had a fatal error and could not be repaired. I was informed that Magellan did not make replacement motherboards for them anymore and none were available. By this time the unit was only 2 years old. I am not impressed that a $1200 unit was irreparable within such a short time and unless I can get some help I will continue to have a very low opinion of Magellan. I hope it is just a dealer trying to force me to upgrade at a cost. If Magellan service is that poor I can assure them that a Magellan will not be on my shopping list as a replacement. Any Ideas?
