Magellan 5310 battery goes dead

This is my second Magellan 5310 and both have the same problem. With a fully charged battery turn the unit off and after about 4 days the battery is dead. You have to charge it before even entering an address. I had a Magellan 4250 and the battery would still have life even after a couple of months of non-use. The battery will last about 3 hours just after charging and used on battery only. With it turned off your back to 4 days and a dead battery. I think something is discharging it, but what? It is off. Thanks for you help.

I just called Magellan.....1-800-707-9971. I got my 4250 for Christmas 2007 and never did register it. We did that over the phone and then he gave me a repair order and an address to send the unit to them. It will be fixed under warranty.....my only cost is the UPS or FED EX shipping. He said I will have it back in 7 to 10 days. OUTSTANDING service.
Mine was stuck on the blue screen.......and the pin reset did nothing.
SO......best of luck to you all......and I highly suggest calling Magellan.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Magellan Maestro 4250 freezing up

I just purchased a referb from TigerDirect and the only issue I discovered was a lockup when the unit goes to sleep. Try holding down the power button for 15 seconds then release it to cycle the unit. Then hold the power button down again for 5 second to start it back up. I had to do this for my bluetooth to work and not freeze up. Now I just turn it on and off manually and avoid having it go to sleep. I also downloaded the firmware update to 4.86, you can download it from Magellan's website. My unit works great so if that doesn't work contact Magellan and I'm sure they will have a solution.

The batteries died on my gps and after I put it on charge it does not turn back on? Is it dead??? What is wrong with it?? Why is it not turning back on?


hi fraserss

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..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

I have had to reset my magellan maestro 5310, but now cannot get passed the system settings and system status pages. I think I have to download something to get it back up and running but not sure where to...


Hi tedmare1

you can download the 4.72 update for your 5310 HERE but follow the directions to the
letter or it will render it inoperable...read all the instructions aftrer downloading and before you
run the update.

make sure either the battery is fully charged, or you have it plugged in to the home charger
NOTE: the usb cord will not charge a magellan 5310, so you need to use the home charger or
fully charge it woth the car charger before starting...if the download is interupted for any reason,
the update will fail and the 5310 will not fully boot.

you might have to register your 5310 with the site before downloading (you used to ) but maybe not since they changed their site within the last few days.

let me know if you need more help or info

Turn on get a screen saying magellan thats it


  • Check if the unit is fully charged. Because if the unit is not charge you will just stay in the magellan logo.
  • If the unit is full charge and still stay in the Magellan logo find the reset button and press and hold the reset button for 15 seconds while its on and then release.
  • If still the same thats the time need to call the technicall support hotline of magellan if they can repair it free of charge.
  • If you need clarification feel free to reply to this solution.

Wont charge or turn on


not sure how long you have had this, but if the unit was completely turned off or battery completely dead, you have to hold the power button for about 15 seconds for the 3000t to start up...assuming the charge light at the top right is orange (that means its charging) no light means its not charging, green light means fully charged. if there is no power light on at the top right of unit, either the charger is bad or the port on the board is bad (which i do have) good luck and hope this helps. bill

I agree. I suggest you should go to a technician and try a new battery. If the new battery does not work you should speak to your manufacturer.
