    Is there a way to remove the battery from the magellian 1200?  When I power this GPS (without plugging it into the car adapter)  up it stays on only for a second then turns off.  When it is plugged into the car adapter it seems to power up twice before it stays on.  


    Also, the place where I plug the power into the unit is loose.  The GPS has never been dropped.  Is it normal for the connection to be loose?

Charge for a few hours then try again. make sure the charger is working. if that does nothing, try holding the power button for about 15 seconds and try again. if that does nothing try a hard reset and if that fails, unplug the battery and plug it back in<<<do this while unplugged from charger ofcoarse.

How to use my gps


Hello,

To use your magellan gps,
  • Mount in-dash models on your dashboard with accessories found on the Magellan website. The company offers motorists kits to get the systems right where you want them for easy driving reference.
  • Use touch-screen controls on the in-dash models. Magellan's Maestro and Roadmate product lines, made for use in vehichle provide convenient touch-screen technology for better safety on the road.
  • Use voice-generating software. The in-dash models also provide guidance by voice instruction. Sit back and let the Magellan device tell you where to go, or reference detailed maps at your fingertips.
  • Use cell-phone type "button" controls on outdoor models like Magellan Triton and eXplorist. Use these keys to get data on speed, distance and location. These devices are also made for the outdoors, durable and ultra-portable.
  • Get the best of both worlds with the Magellan Crossover. This model comes with the features of a car model, but also fits into your pocket for outdoor trekking. Use the Crossover for activities like boating and geocaching, or mount it on your dash and get on the road. Versatile models like the Magellan CrossoverGPS are popular among those who are truly on the go.
Take care and good luck

Display only blinks, how to reset the unit?


hey there michael_wick,

you need to install version 1.68 first before the 2.14 unless you have that installed already.

why cant you update it via the USB cable to your computer...all magellan GPS require at least Windows OS XP service pack 2 to sync with the computer.

if your not seeing the crossover listed in your computer, can you see the usb connection wizard in the lower left of the task bar on your computer.

btw, is this a true crossover, or a 2200T thats been upgrated with the crossover firmware?

Touch screen does not respond


turn the crossover on, looking at it from the front, there is a rest on the side and depending on whether its an older or newer crossover, it will either have a slide switch or a tiny hole to reset it on the left side towards the bottom...if it has the slide switch, move it in the opposite direction (it should turn off) now move it back, then power it on again...if its the pin hole type, get a paper clip and insert it in the hole to reset it..turn the crossover one first. (it should restart by itself)

if the reset doesnt work, it probably needs a digitizer (the touch part of the screen) if you think you need a digitizer, let me know and ill show you where to get one.

It wont show the streets and wont shut off


try and reset the your crossover. on the left side under the sd card slot is the reset. depending on the date it was manufactured, it could have one of two different switches. one has a switch you slide down and then back up to reset it. it must be in the up position for your crossover to turn back on.

turn the unit on, then slide the switch down, then back up!

if it is a later model crossover, you just need to depress the button with the gps on and it will reset.

make sure its charging..plug it in to a known good charger..go to the main menu, then systems options then power the power bar on the bottom should be moving from left to right..if its not, its probably the dc power port

Magellan Maestro or Roadmate..800 860 2000 2200t 2500 3000 3050
3100 3140 4000 4040 4050 6000t

hi gtrojan even with a deed battery or no battery at all for that matter, your crossover should still start normally while connected to external power.

first try the reset, with the unit on (even if it is dim)use a paper clip and insert it in the little hole on the side. if it starts normally and is still plugged to the charger, go to the main menu/options/power and see if the chaging indicator is moving from side to side. if it is not moving,



The following Magellan 800,860,2000,2200t,2500,(crossover) 3000,3050,3100,3140,4000,4040,4050 and the 6000t 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 may also have another issue with the screen but you need to find out why its not charging 1st.
