Sounds like an on/off switch problem! See if you can "jump out" the switch. If it works that way, replace the switch!

SOURCE: GPS doesnt turn on with power cord adaptor or 12v lighter socket

if you can verify that the car charger is ok, try plugging it in to your computer using the usb cable. the 1412 should charge with the usb cable. if it still doesnt turn on, try and reset the unit,little pin hole on the side.

SOURCE: Magellan RoadMate won't compute if connected to power

unplug the charger, then turn the 1200 on, once its fully booted, hold the power button for 15 seconds..the screen will go blank after a few seconds, but continue to hold it for 15 seconds.

now, with the charger plugged in and unit off, press and hold the power button for upto 7 seconds or till it starts.

if that fails, let me know and i can tell you something else to do.

SOURCE: Can I charge my magellan roadmate 1340 using the USB?

Should be able to so long as it is set up for it, plug it in and see if the power light comes on, then leave it for an hour, at that time see if you can turn the unit on. You will at this point have your answer to your question. Make sure the computer is on though. (i know, but i didn't put that in one time and i got a nasty message from somebody, so now i put it in.)

Magellen 2036 auto off


the receptacle where you plug the power supply is probably broken away from the circuit board inside. it is poorly designed and will fail
it can be soldered back on if you can get inside.check to make sure your power adapter has power coming out of it.

Device will not power on


I found a Magellan Roadmate in the dumpster when I was dumping the trash off my truck.They were even so kind to leave the charging cord.I figured out that the charging cord wasn't connecting to the unit when plugged in.It took 20 minutes to figure out how to pop the case open(retainer tabs on all sides in addition to the screws).Once opened up,it took 5 minutes to repair the solder connections from the power socket to he circuit board.Works like new!

How do you get started... where do you plug in the gps in my toyota avalon? I have a 5045


Hello, If i understand correctly, you are just trying to set up your Magellan gps into your Toyota Avalon. First of depending on the kit you got for the bracket to hold the unit, it normally will have a suction cup, that secures the bracket, put the bracket on the window, normally to the right of driver view and toward bottom of window, then after putting mounting (suction cup and gps holder) on window, then mount gps in to bracket, now your gps is mounted at this point on window. Now, of course you have to plug it in. GPS kits when you buy them normally have a 110 power plug ( to plug into home outlet) and some will have with the kit, a 12 volt cigarette type of plug to plug in your car (which is 12 volt power) In your home of course you can charge the gps off your 110 power, and gps will run off internal battery for a few hours, but you will find out like with mine, that your better off to plug into car for power, because the internal battery does not last very long. I have a Magellan as well, and they are great units. NOW this being said, if you did not get with your gps a 12 volt car adapter for your gps, you will have to get one. ( unless you have a power converter, which takes 12 volt and converts it to 110 power, but that's another story and only recommended for devices that do not have 12 volt adapter capabilities)

In conclusion if you have the 12 volt adapter to plug in your gps, all you do is find your cigarette lighter, take out your cigarette lighter, put in glove box for storage, and plug your gps in your cigarette lighter, or any other 12 volt cig lighter plugin. That's all there is to it, and now you have power running off your car. Thanks mike , hope this helps

Magellan Roadmate 2036-mu will not find satellite signal at all. It straight out of the box. tried having it in clear view of the sky, and still nothing. Any suggestions?


Slide the power switch to turn it OFF and hold it in that position for about 20 secs or more. Release the switch and now restart the GPS by sliding the power switch again. The GPS should start up and start searching for satellites.
