My GPS was working fine until today when I started the car, GPS screen didn't show up at all. I don't know why it suddenly doesn't work.


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..keep reading.

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

How do you get started... where do you plug in the gps in my toyota avalon? I have a 5045


Hello, If i understand correctly, you are just trying to set up your Magellan gps into your Toyota Avalon. First of depending on the kit you got for the bracket to hold the unit, it normally will have a suction cup, that secures the bracket, put the bracket on the window, normally to the right of driver view and toward bottom of window, then after putting mounting (suction cup and gps holder) on window, then mount gps in to bracket, now your gps is mounted at this point on window. Now, of course you have to plug it in. GPS kits when you buy them normally have a 110 power plug ( to plug into home outlet) and some will have with the kit, a 12 volt cigarette type of plug to plug in your car (which is 12 volt power) In your home of course you can charge the gps off your 110 power, and gps will run off internal battery for a few hours, but you will find out like with mine, that your better off to plug into car for power, because the internal battery does not last very long. I have a Magellan as well, and they are great units. NOW this being said, if you did not get with your gps a 12 volt car adapter for your gps, you will have to get one. ( unless you have a power converter, which takes 12 volt and converts it to 110 power, but that's another story and only recommended for devices that do not have 12 volt adapter capabilities)

In conclusion if you have the 12 volt adapter to plug in your gps, all you do is find your cigarette lighter, take out your cigarette lighter, put in glove box for storage, and plug your gps in your cigarette lighter, or any other 12 volt cig lighter plugin. That's all there is to it, and now you have power running off your car. Thanks mike , hope this helps

My gps is stuck on magellan boot up screen.


turn on your 1210 once it boots to the magellan screen press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds, once it shuts off, power it back on by pressing and holding the power button for up to ten seconds then let it load.


if that fails,power it up and try the reset button, (either on the bottom or on the side)the little pinhole, and use a paper clip to depress the reset
button.
