Re: It will not power up. Used car adapter and still will...

I'm also returning my RoadMate 2200T GPS . I bought mine on HSM and they made it sound so good that I paid $400.00 and had it for 2-yrs and used it very little and the time I most need it will would not work at all. As I was lost in the middle off no where they told me to go home and try to go on there website to up load a new map. After spending an hour going crazy on why my unit will not take the maps I called them back and they told me that was a reading error on my system that I needed to retun it and get it fixed on my dime. I was very un-happy that I spent so much money on something that is not going to work after 2-yrs. I feel like I got raped.
I don't recommend this product.

Hello prlady, The repair center is with a company in Fort Worth called ATC Logistics & Electronics. So, search for that name and you'll get the proper information needed. By the way, what's the reason your sending your unit in?

How to charge my gps garmin 1490t?

You can download the manual here. Charging instructions are on page 48.
Depending on the package you purchased, you may have a USB cable. If so, connect the cable to your n?vi and your computer USB port. USB hubs may not be capable of charging the unit.
If you do not have a USB cable, and are not able to charge the n?vi in your car, the fuse in your car vehicle adapter may be bad. You can unscrew the black round end piece from the adapter. This will be on the end that goes into the lighter/power socket. Be careful not to loose the silver cap. The fuse is spring loaded and may pop out. The proper replacement fuse type is indicated on the side of the vehicle adapter.
Garmin also offers an optional AC adapter that can be used without a computer.

My Garmin C340 is dead!!!!

I had the same problem on a trip. Required two fixes and once I did this the unit worked fine.
1. Replace the fuse in the car adapter (reason it wasn't charging when I used it in the car).
2. See the users manual on page 31 regarding resetting your C340.

Won't Power from Cigarette lighter

Recently I had a similar problem with my 300 - worked fine with AC power, but was intermittent with the power point in my truck sometimes it wouldn't power up at all in the truck).

I used a small nail file (steel wool would work too) to break the "glaze" on the outside of the small plug that plugs in to the unit on the power cord. It seems that it wasn't getting a good ground. Has been working great ever since - worth a try.

Takes 4 ever to start up

Dave, Please, stop turning your heater on and holding your unit up to the vent. This error is not a unique one, but it is one that requires parts to be replaced. The keypad board has 2 wires coming off of it and they sit right ontop of your LCD. More then likely that is what will be replaced. The only problem is, is that you can't buy individual parts from Magellan. So, ATC Logistics & Electronics (Magellan repair center) in Fort Worth, Tx would be your next move if your wanting to pay for repairs.. or just get a new one. -Daniel

Magellan GPS does not turn on

I've got one that has a problem with the power connector. Look on the adapter thingy (has the female power socket along with the usb socket). With a pin, wiggle the center power pin. If it is loose, this is the problem. Carefully use a knife to open the adapter thingy (it's glued together). Go to Radio Shack/Fry's and get a replacement power female socket that solders to the little PC board in the adapter thingy. This will fix it. Allen

How to hard reset magellan 700

Hussam.. I believe the newest software upgrade you can get for the 700 is version 4.32 which is the same version used on the 760's. The maps are stored on the hard drive, so I do not think a reset will help but here is how it's done. 1. At the user select menu (first screen to appear after initial turn on) hold down the zoom out key (-) and the repeat button (on top of your unit). 2. Once at the "secret" menu, select reset user data. This will reset all of your personal information from the unit. All of your POI's will be deleted as well as your user name (which you can re-create of course) 3. Your unit will re-boot automatically and that's how you reset your unit. Like I said though, I do not think this will revive your maps. If you have the maps on a DVD-CD then you can reload them that way, otherwise send it to the Fort Worth, Tx repair center and they have the proper program to load data directly to the hard drive. Good luck! -Daniel
