If it is cracked then most likely it will need to be sent back to the manufacturer for repairs. If its not working correctly you could always try to do a screen calibration.

Broken screen Magellan roadmate 1212


Hi.
It is actually much cheaper to buy a new unit than to repair it.
It cost around $150 and above, depends on how crack it is and what model of magellan you're using.

My magellan roadmate has a small ding on screen. I will not respond to touch on certain screens. Can it be taken appart for repair?


yes it can, but youll have to get the lcd with the digitizer, because the are soldered on the the lcd and very difficult to replace.

you can buy a good used, but broken 1200 off ebay for under 20.00 normally, because the 1200 has a problem with the usb port becoming damaged or broken and ask the seller if the screen is good

here is a quik search of broken 1200 on 43e7187.gif

you can also by a new screen but its harly worth it, since yyou can buy a new 1200 for under 70.00

if you need further help, just reply to this post

GPS had fallen off glass and broken power connector port( 5 pins in metal frame) inside of GPS. I can not put power jack into GPS.


From the Magellan website, http://www.magellangps.com/support/warranty.asp, their policy on broken screens:

"Magellan will replace receivers with a broken display returned within the warranty period with a reconditioned unit of the same or comparable model at a reduced cost to customer. Customers with a broken display unit returned outside the warranty period will be given the opportunity to purchase a new unit at a reduced cost or reconditioned unit also at a reduced cost."

My magellan mastro gps touch screen will not respond. less than 4 months old. magellan wants me to send the unit back to be replaced by a refurbed unit with a 3 month warranty. i would like to know how can...


turn it on, make sure the battery has a good charge on it, then locate the reset hole on the left side near the bottom and use a paper clip to depress the switch...youll know its reset if the unit goes off and reboots....if that fail, it needs a digitizer (the part that lets you navigate your magellan) its the upper layer over the touch screen.

i buy broken magellans off ebay if i need a digitizer or screen..normally for under 20.00
