The folowing advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

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

WONT TURN ON , TRIED TO RESET AND IT STILL WONT WORK, UNTIL THIS TIME IT ONLY WORKED IF IT WAS PLUGGED IN.


its probably not charging...very common problem with this and many others.

make sure green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (upto ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

the following magellan 2000,2200t,2500,3000,3100,3140,4000,4040,4050 and the 6000 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...

you can get it repaired, here
or buy the port here

if you need further help, just let me know.

My magellan roadmate 1200 will not turn on


make sure green light is on if using the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..

if you tried charging it with both house charger and car charger and tried to start it like i explain and it still will not start, its most likely a bad power port which is very common with this model and many other magellan models.

My gps won't turn on. I charged it fully yesterday , tried using the reset switch and pressing the hold button, neither of which worked.


plug it in to either the home charger or the car charger for a few minutes, then press the power button for up to 15 seconds. if that fails you might have a bad power connector.if you think you might need the connector or need it repeired.

Worked for a year, now says not charged when plugged in


Try to use a wall adapter and charge it for 4 hrs before you plug it in the car because it is much better if you use a wall adapter it gives more power.

Magellan Maestro 4250 wont charge


No the device is not defective. magellan has this stupid usb interface problem preventing the unit from being charged and used at the same time, they do that so you have to use there charger. the unit will say usb connected and will not boot up like normal at all. unit will be locked up until the usb is unplugged. most usb devices charge at 5v with 500mA, and the magellan requires 5v 1A. Ipod Charger charges at the 1A with 5v but wont work

Battery charge cord


Take a look at the plastic fitting where the cable goes into the GPS. Ours broke which caused the same problem. Easier to buy another one used on ebay than try to get it fixed. Magellan started off as a great company with a fantastic product but I think the competition has eclipsed them. Too bad really.

GPS 2200T Just Quit Today


My 2200T developed similar problem and shut down and when attempting to start it, I received “low battery message”. After getting a run around from the manufacturer (out of warranty by a month), I decided to take a look myself. This does not men that I encourage just anyone to do this and if you break the unit more seriously I am not responsible. The process is as follows:
Unscrew the back panel (six screws), gently remove it (be careful of the speaker wires attached to the PC board). You do not have to remove the back panel any further than to get access to the power outlet (where you plug in the power supply). On the inside of the unit, on top of the outlet is a thin copper plate, it is likely that it was bend up with use and lost contact with the plug. Gently bend it inwards using a small screwdriver (be careful not to break it). That should do it. Your unit should be getting the power and battery should charge now.
