Robdw71 you can get help through the link near the bottom of this post...good luck

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

How do you replace the battery in a Magellan Roadmate 1200


there are four hidden screws under the little rubber plugs on the back (unless they are missing) remove those screws, then use your finger nail (thats what i use) to slid it around the seem of the front and back cover to un snap the locks.

carefully seperate them and disconnect the wires off the rear cover thats attached to the board...its pretty easy...just dont be in a hurry

youll see the battery right away and its a simple remove and replace...no soldering or any other nonsense

I will bring it to Hong Kong and let my friend to fix it. It's very cheap if we find anyone to fix it in China where Magellan is assembled . Thanks.

MAGELLEN ROADMATE 700 NO POWER


One of the wires in your power cord could be broken. If you have the a/c adapter, see if you can power up with that. If you know someone else with a working Magellan, you could borrow his cord to test your unit.

If not, check the car adapter with a continuity tester. Put one tester probe on one of the side springs of the car plug and the other probe on the outside metal of the GPS plug. If that shows continuity, place one tester probe on the end tip of the car plug and the other inside the the GPS plug.

If either of those do not show continuity, first take apart the auto side of the cord. Check the fuse and the wire to contact solder joints. If they seem okay, carefully cut back the molded plastic from the GPS end and examine the wire to solder joints. If any are broken, replace the cord or resolder the joints.

Power adapter


Hi, You can get the power adapter pin replaced at an Electronic store. Radio Shack has it but it must be special ordered, have you tested the power cord? I think that you might be right about the power socket cause thats what most common problem of the ones that I repair.

Magellan Roadmate 800 - External Power Connection


The only thing I can think to add is a general question to Magellan asking why they let a four-year-old child design the power connector as "lightly" soldered to the main circuit board. Very dumb...
