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 called Magellan and they told me that the previous destinations hold only 20 addresses and the new ones will override the old ones. I have more then 20 previous destinations and it just keeps adding new ones to the list.

I need to get software for 5045 for Germany, where do I order and how do I install it?


magellan web site is a good place to look. you`ll probably have to purchase and download to your pc then hook your magellen to you pc. they have data cables for that that usually come with it. or get one on ebay. Magellen usually has an app you download to your pc and plug in your roadmate and it updates it and for an additional fee they sell you updated operating system of you gps.

Thanks for requesting my knowledge to help you. I have located the manual.

Magellan Roademate 5045 frozen on map screen. Is there any way of restarting it? There is no small hole for a reset button and I tried holding the power slider for ten seconds. No luck


I had exact same 'Magellan 5045 frozen' problem. Here is how I fixed it. Go to www.magellangps.com/contentmanager. Download and install Magellan Content Manager. Plug in your GPS. If content manager does not activate automatically, start it manually, like any other windows program or by right clicking on its icon. You will be asked to register your device and its serial number, etc.
After registering, if Content Manager fails to take you directly to the download location for your device, along the top of the Magellan web pages you will see a set of tabs, one of those is 'Support'. This is a pull-down menu. Select Manuals and Software update. This then takes you to their 'Support' web page. On the support web page, click on the 'Manuals and Software Downloads' button. This will take you to a page where you will be asked to select from four Download Categories. For the roadmate 5045 and similar gps intended to be used in an auto, select 'Magellan Vehicle Navigation'. This will take you to another page where you will have to select from three product series. For the 5045 series, select 'Roadmate Series'. This is another pulldown where you will have to select your product number, e.g., Roadmate 5045. This will finally take you to a page where you can select software and map updates. You will have to connect your Roadmate gps to your computer via USB and you will have to register. It is confusing because you will get incorrect and irrelevant statements like your device failed to register. It is somewhat quirky but if you follow the instructions and you have a wideband cable or FIOS internet connection, the upgrade to the software and the maps takes about 30 minutes. Do unplug your RoadMate from the USB unless asked to do so by the Content Manager program. After the software and maps update, the Roadmate 5045 worked like better than new for me.

Describe your how to charge my magellan roadmate 5045...does it have to be on?


hi crystaldehar

no, it doesnt have to be on, but does take a few hours to charge...magellan recommends using the car charger or the ac adapter to initially charge it for atleast two hours...if you use the car charger, there should be a light on the charger to tell you its working and charging your unit (provided theres nothing wrong with it)

you should also have gotten a usb cable with your unit, it will (should) also charged while hooked to your PC via the usb cable.

let me know if you need further help...HERE is your manual
