Customer Question

My 296 will not come on or charge. The battery is showing 7.4 v on a meter.
JA: How long has this been going on?
Customer: I don't use it a whole lot but I noticed a couple different times a year or so ago where it wouldn't come on. I messed with it and took the battery out and it finally come on.
JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Nothing other than taking the battery in and out.
JA: The GPS expert can solve this for you. Anything else you want him to know before I connect you two?
Customer: I believe not. Thanks
