Question about GPS Devices

2 Answers

Was working fine while plugged into the window mount w/car power adapter. Turned it off when arrived at destination. Put it in protected center console. Came back a few hours later - popped it back onto mount, would not turn on. No exposure to movement or extreme temps while in center console. Battery was not drained down before disconnection from power adapter. Unit is less than one year old. Will not turn on even when plugged into computer via USB. HELP!

    I had the same problem. I took it back to Costco where I bought it. I had it only 60 days.

Hello.

AMagellan Global Positioning System (GPS) is a car device that determines thebest route from your current location to a destination that you enter. It thenguides you to that destination through voice and visual instructions. Thoughthese installation procedures can apply to all Magellan in general, they arespecific to the Magellan ONE mode
Installing
1 Choose an area by the driver's side windshield, belowyour line of sight, to install the Magellan mount. Make sure your view is notblocked when the GPS is installed.
2 Clean the area with glass cleaner and wait for it todry completely.
3 Remove the protective film from the mount's suctioncup. Moisten the bottom of the cup with a little water so it sticks securely tothe glass.
4 Press the suction cup against the windshield glass.If your model has an Easy Port dial, rotate itclockwise until it locks.
5 Plug the power charging cord into your Magellan andthe power outlet or cigarette lighter outlet of your car.Setup
1 Hold down the device switch for up to 20 secondsuntil a welcome screen appears. If the device does not turn on (the LED lightis not green), it may require recharging. Drive your car for a few minuteswhile your Magellan is attached to the power outlet. Then try turning it on again.
2 Answer the setup questions by tapping the screen. Youcan change your preferences any time after setup by tapping the "ChangePreferences" icon of the "Main" menu.
3 Your device needs to determine its current location,which can initially take up to 5 minutes. Drive your car to an open area withouttall buildings or trees. Put your Magellan on the dashboard console so it has aclear line of sight to the sky. When it determines your position, the deviceshows the driving view.
4 You can now enter a destination by tapping the screenand showing the Main menu. Tap the "Navigate To" button and enter anaddress.
5 Slide the Magellan onto the mount until it clicks.Twist the device slightly until you can clearly see the screen. Begin drivingand follow the GPS directions.
Thanks

Screen is locked and cannot turn it off. i had entered a destination, it was working and I have not had any prior problems. now the screen is frozen with the original arrival time. I have tried to turn it...


Have you tried resetting the unit? If you take the faceplate off (put your fingernail in the top center of the faceplate, and you will be able to pull it forward. It then pops off), there is a reset button on the bottom right of the machine. Press this and see if it helps.

Garmin quest won't swith on.


The Quest charges on about 5 volts you have to plug the cigarette adapter into a 12 volt souce, the adapter then converts it to 5 volts. If you splice 12 volts directly into the mount the quest will not work because you burn up the circuits or the battery.

Won't Power from Cigarette lighter


Recently I had a similar problem with my 300 - worked fine with AC power, but was intermittent with the power point in my truck sometimes it wouldn't power up at all in the truck).

I used a small nail file (steel wool would work too) to break the "glaze" on the outside of the small plug that plugs in to the unit on the power cord. It seems that it wasn't getting a good ground. Has been working great ever since - worth a try.

Garmin nuvi 200 route calculation problem


Sounds like a major software failure. . .

Hold a finger on the upper right corner of the screen while powering up the unit. This should do a master reset.
