Question about Magellan RoadMate 2000 GPS Receiver
I have had the unit for 2 to 3 years and use it infrequently. I do not leave it plugged into the cigarette lighter plug often either. For a while I was getting an error message that the battery was critically low.
Most recently I tried to power on the unit and it was dead. I purchased a new DC cord for the cigarette lighter and used the reset button although I still have no power. I checked the receptacle and it has power.
Looks like it is the battery, although when I called Magellan they said they do not sell the battery seperately. If I send it for repair it would probably be more economical to purchase a new unit like the Magellan 1412 since I have the air vent mount and the new unit would use the same one.
The following 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
