Magellan GPS RoadMate 4250 Will Not Hold Charge

I have a RoadMate 4250 that is less than a year old. The problem I am having is the inability to turn on the device once it has been disconnected from a dedicated power source. I have tried fully charging the device with the AC adapter as well as with the car charger. The device works and can be used when plugged in. If the device is unplugged from the car charger, for example, and you select "no" when the prompt asks whether you want to continue in battery mode, it cannot be turned on again using the power button. The device is in excellent condition, is always stored inside and has not been dropped. Any suggestions as to a remedy that does NOT include sending it back to Magellan would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: Magellan roadmate 300 wont turn on!

I think the problem is with the internal power jack which tends to break. the part is MG361213 and is available at laptopjacks.com. You have to take the Unit apart and remove the old jack and resolder the new one which is a three pin unit.

Good Luck

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.

My magellan Roadmate 5220-LM powers on but will not go past the first screen. I have tried to use the reset button but it still will not work


Hello Liz, You may have two problems. If your unit is several years old, the battery may need to be replaced. First charge the battery overnight. To get the screen unfrozen , you need to remove the screws on the back, open the case, and unplug the white battery connection . Reconnect the battery connection after a few seconds. If this works, it is usually a temporary fix . Either your battery does not hold a charge or your charger connection is poor at best and can not deliver a full charge to the battery. It could be both.

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.

Can I charge my Magellan roadmate with USB cable connected to the computer?


It depends on the Roadmate that you have. :
- If your Roadmate has a separate plug-in port for charging your unit IN ADDITION TO a USB port, then no, your Roadmate cannot be charged using your computer via the USB cable.
- If your Roadmate only has a USB port available for charging your unit, then yes, you can charge it via your computer via USB.
However, please note, according to Magellan, charging your unit using your PC via USB can take up to 12 hours to charge vs. 4-6 hours when using the vehicle power adapter.
FYI: This is mainly due to USB constraints on pretty much all electronic devices. USB cannot carry the same amount of power to a device. It uses what is commonly known as a 'trickle' charge to recharge a device. It carries much less current than a full-blown charger (like an AC power adapter).

I CAN'T TURN ON MY MAGELAN ROADMATE 3000T


I lost the ability to charge mine after the female piece of the adapter on the unit itself was worn after a year of use. The company has been clueless, and three attempts to urge them to simplify my efforts to fix this have all met with frustration. They suck at Magellan. I threw it in the trash and bought a Garmin.
