My gps only works when it is plugged in as it does not hold battery charge.

    How old is your via 280? How is it plugged in, USB port or cigarette lighter socket?

    These devices are designed to work continuously connected to an external power supply (as they draw 1.2 Amps !)

    Where is it plugged into for it to work?
