    It is the TNDT80B

    I haven't used the magentic mount cause it wasn't working properly. And started having the same issues with the DC cable pluged directly from the cigarette lighter to the tablet.
    Seems like it's a common issue and it's happening to both charging ports/ methods.

    I'm sure you've heard others have this issue and I'm wondering what you guys were able to come up with?

    I read somewhere that the problem is the charging port goes bad?

    Does anyone else’s RM battery last less than 15 minutes with a full battery? I have the 730. I guess I could just keep it plugged up during my shift but just thought I’d ask.

    Ya everyone's battery on the 730 does the same as these units are meant to be Plugged In all the time. The battery is more or less a backup so if you lose power it can be shut down in a safe manner as not to scramble a lot of files just like your home pc doesn't like to be shut down without it going through the proper procedure as a sudden disconnection of power can cause major problems, after all, these older models all use the Microsoft Op. Sys. but all newer ones are Android.

    Not sure if that makes a difference that's it's on Android since a lot of people are having battery issues on those also but it will be interesting to get more info on why the battery issue becomes such a issue with random McNally products

    Hey, what happened to the Rand McNally Motor Carriers Road Atlas application for the Overdryve 8 tablet? I recently accessed it on the tablet, but there were no maps anymore listed. I tapped on update maps, but it just stays stuck in 'Retrieving map list' at 0%. I let it run for hours to try to get the maps, but it never changes from 0%.

    My 740 is coming up with the wrong time on automatic update. I put it on manual and can set it correctly, but every time it powers off I have to go in and do this (and year and date, goes back to 2009 or something every reset). Any ideas? This just started being a problem the last month or so.
