Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,
Sorry to hear of any issue you are having with your device.
To help you with this issue, may I ask:
1) WHERE was this unit purchased?
2) Was it purchased as NEW, USED, or perhaps "Refurbished"?
3) HOW LONG has it been connected to power (or the computer)?
OK - I only ask because the FIRST thing that usually needs to be done with these devices is to connect them to POWER - and let them CHARGE UP - for AT LEAST AN HOUR or so.
Also, you will want to connect it to a HIGH POWER (1 AMP or greater) USB charger OR the Vehicle Adapter that it came with.
Does that make sense?
I mentioned HIGH POWER because MOST computer USB ports only put out about 0.5 Amps, which doubles the charge time, and I suspect you want to get using and experimenting with this device soon.
If you have the optional USB-based Power adapter - then Yes.
MOST of those supply AT LEAST 1 Amp of power, but you can check by reading the TINY output specifications on the adapter.
I also noted that this particular unit has specifications that say the "battery life" of a fully charged battery is only 30 minutes.
What that means is that this unit is INTENDED to be powered and used mostly when connected IN THE VEHICLE.
If you haven't found it already, I have a link to the electronic (PDF) version of the FULL manual for you below. I will also try to see if there are any "video tutorials" you might want to look at - while the device is charging.
NOTE: That is a PDF file, so whatever computer or device you are using to click that link will need a "viewer program" to display it (if it does not appear when you click the link). If you need such a program, you can get it at the link below - at no cost.
I see it has been a few days and I haven't seen a response on this page, so I just wanted to follow up to see if you have any more questions concerning this issue OR if the issue was resolved?
I look forward to any further questions or results that you may have.
Thanks, ***** *****--. .-(im)
