SporTrak battery holder (old thread, new info)
- After a period time, I couldn't hit the hole with screw either (infer
what you wish). I didn't worry about it because the o-ring locks the
battery compartment in tight anyway. However, I pulled the d-ring off
of the screw. Fixed it one time then pulled it off again. After using
a small screwdriver for awhile to get the battery compartment out, I
called Magellan to see if I could buy (my STP is out of warranty) a
new screw for the battery compartment. The nice lady on the phone
asked me if I wanted a new battery compartment instead. I said sure
and gave her my address. I did have to tell her I needed a black one
and not the yellow one. Since I didn't need anything else, she thanked
me and hung up. A few days later I get the battery compartment in. No
charge. They didn't even ask for the serial number of my STP. Now I
got my D-RING back and I can hit the hole with screw, easily (again,
infer what you wish).
Anyway, call Magellan and get them to send you a new battery
compartment. I figure after a period of time the plastic holding the
screw becomes larger causing the screw to wobble.
