My Magellan Maestro 3210 constantly says low battery while on trip and shutoff, I have it plugged into the astray why would the battery be low, how do I get it off battery power setting, or why is it doing...


Usually when you see low battery like that it means the battery itself needs to be replaced at it can't hold a charge or enough of a charge to be usefull. If you unit is over 18-24 months old then th e battery is most likely the problem. This will happen even if you have always used external power as the battery doesn;t get properlly cycled enough.

It is possible that it is the power source you are using is too low but sounds more like the battery is the problem.

If you have warrenty the battery should be replaced by Magellan. If not a replacement battery is about $30 and is something you may be able to do. You need to remove the back cover and unplug the old battery and plug in the new one and put it all back together.

Here is one link for a battery but there are other just search for Maestro 3210 battery with google or bing and you should find a few places that offer them.

Battery will not hold charge


make sure its charging by going in to the options tab, then system, then power options and look at the battery meter and see if its moving left to right while plugged in to the charger.

if its not,

This is very common problem with this and many model of magellans.

Try the car charger.

Make sure
green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

Battery does not keep a charge. Can the battery


yes, the batter can be re placed, but i would verify its charging before buying a battery.

make sure green light is on the car charger (or a known good charger0 and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..

after its started, go to the system setting. the battery meter should be moving left to right. if its all green and turns off when unplugged, the battery needs replaced.

your part # for your battery should be 37-00030-001you can get a battery HERE but verify your unit with the seller.

if it only has a few bars and is not moving while plugged it, it is not charging.

this is a very common problem for the models listed below.

I can't tell if my magellan maestro 4000 gps is charging.


this could be happening for a few reasons but the most common is that its probably not charging.

before checking anything else, plug your 4000 in to a known good charger, then press and hold the power button for up to ten seconds till it starts.

if that fails, its likely not charging

this is very common problem with this and many model magellans.

My Magellan Maestro 3100 GPS unit won't charge anymore. I've seen 2 possible explanations for this problem. #1: The DC power port is broken #2: The battery won't hold a charge any longer How do I determine...


if it starts, you can verifiy if its charging by going to the system settings then power options. the green indicator should be moving left to right. this indicates its charging.

if you disconnect the battery, your magellan should still work while plugged in if the power port is ok.

try the car charger.

Magellan maestro 4000, 4040, 4050 vs mio c220,c230,


Don't buy a Magellan. There is little to no support, and their web based support redirects to no where useful for upgrades. I'd sell you my 4040, but can't in good conscience sell it to anyone.
