Got a model number?

Changed the battery? Charged the battery externally? Tried alkalines?

Checked the fuse in the Cigarette adapter?

Magellan Roadmate 1412 won't track satellites


It might mean that the signal is disrupted. Might be a software glitch. Try going outside, get a clear view of the sky. Then reboot/reset the unit. Hold the switch to the reset position or off position for 10 seconds, it will shut off. then switch it back on. It should reacquire a signal within 2-5 minutes, then it will fix on your position. If that doesn't work, try updating your software. Call Magellan Tech Support for instructions.

Magellan Roadmate 2000.. No GPS signals


make sure the battery is charged up good, then take it outside and turn it on and leave it in clear view of the open sky for up to 30 minutes to acquire the satellites especially if its been reset.

if that fails, reset the unit...turn it on, then locate the reset button on the left side bottom of the gps and use a paper clip to depress the reset switch...it should restart on its own..take it back outside and let it in clear view of the open sky for up to 30 minutes.

if that fails..go HERE and get the update and follow the instructions..you will have to sign on to the Magellan site before you can download anything.

if you need more help, just post back

My boyfriend has this gps and it froze up on him around the time that the clocks went back what can I do


Try sending it back to Magellan or go to Magellans Website www.magellan.com and download their updates. You will first need to download Magellans software - then hook your gps to the pc with the usb cord.
One other thing - try a wall charger for 48 hours. I have seen this work.

Have a 4040 maestro magellan will not get off the magellan screen


if this just happened, and you have not tried to update it (sometimes the update causes this) then power the 4040 on and once it finished loading to the blue screen, using a paper clip, depress the reset switch on the left side and let it restart (little pinhole on the left side under the usb port)


if you need further help, just reply to this post.

When i try to turn on the gps it asks for you to hit enter to continue but when i press enter it does not do anything and it then shuts down


Try reloading the firmware, its available on the Magellan website.
You may need some of the back door commands. There is wonderful trouble shooting information at www.mtgc.org/robertlipe/MeridianFAQ/ start reading about page 12. If you need to reload the master maps, they are on your MapSend Streets disk. With the laters firmware update I can use a 1GB SD card but I have not been able to get a 2 GB card to work.

Magellan no longer supports this device, so contacting them is a waste of time, they are rude, stupid, and won't tell you anything even if they know it.

"Dead" Magellan RoadMate 2000T


do you still need help with this gps. im sure i can help you as i fix these everyday.

this is a very common problem with your model gps

the following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and 6000t

i fix these and many other magellan gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.

assuming your car charger is working (the little green light is on) and your magellan still wont start up after holding the power button while its plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not start..read below

this is actually a very common problem with these magellan power ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then the factory port.

if your able to replace that power port yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that sells them for help.

due to some dubious "experts" on fixya, im not permitted to help you directly, but please follow the link above to get further help.

let me know if you need more help or info

check the fuse in the plug - usually a ring around the end that unscrews and the fuse and a small spring will be inside the small metal pin that sticks out the end. Hope this helps, please post again if not :)
