G'day

I acidently left my Magellan Explorist 600 charging in mains power overnight.
Next morning it wont start (and was quite warm)
'secret' reset combos don't do anyhting either.

Few questions for the techs out there.

1. Is th battery no longer any good and won't work again?
2. can you power the explorist without a battery in - because it dosen't start with power plugged in (usb and/or mains) and no battery?
3. If i have 'broken' my explorist, i live in eastern suburbs of Melbourne, (Australia ) - where do i take it to get looked at?
4. will it cost me more to fix than get a new one?

Thanks!!

Scott
