Question about Magellan RoadMate 2200T GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Magellan 2200T will not accept charge

I have tried the AC adaptor and the unit will not accept power or charge, also with the car adaptor the light on the adaptor indicates the adaptor works, however when I plug it into the GPS the light goes out and the GPS will still not turn on or accept charge. I have tried the reset and that does not work...the unit now has no battery power left and I am unable to turn it on at all.
Anyone know how to fix this or if it is even fixable, I have only had it for a year and a half. worked great before this.

    Sorry this still did not work. I disconnected and reconnected the battery but still nothing, shouldn't it still work even if the battery is no good when it is plugged into a power source, which mine does not.

    Thanks for trying, I am just about ready to throw it in the garbage, I talked to magellan and all they did was offer me another GPS at 1/2 price...woo hoo

Well, I am not sure if your problem is the same as mine. My unit stopped working as well after about 1.5 years.

I opened it up, thinking the battery might be a goner. But after opening it up and checking the battery with a voltmeter, it looked good.

On re-connecting the battery, everything worked fine...loose contact maybe? Its been working fine so far.

    Well mine wouldn't work with the power either. Maybe we have different problems or maybe the problem I had was intermittent and it could re-surface :-(

Magellan RoadMate 2200T won't turn on


ost times not turning on is because the battery is flat or dead. Connect it to a USB charger or and AC charger and leave it for an hour to see if there is any recovery.

If it does not have it taken to a service centre to have the charge circuit checked and a new battery.

How do I 'update' my Magellan to current abilities


do you want to update the firmware or the maps..the firmware is free but the map update is about 80.00 ..thats double of what the 2200t are selling for...

never the less, you can get either updates HERE just follow the instructions to the letter or you may render your 2200t inoperable if you fail to allow the update to complete or possible by trying to update it with a half charged battery...make sure its either plugged in to power or the battery is fully charged..

P.S. the update is for the north american version, if you need one for another country, id be happy to get you the direct link to there download page. you will also have to register on the magellan site before they will let you download any updated.

good luck, let me know if you need more help.

Broken AC port causing intermitten charging


the folowing 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

Cord will not light up or charge magellan


if the light does not com one on the car charger, try another charger if you have one, or a home charge if you have one of those...this model also has a common problem if you have a good charger.

My Magellan Maestro 3100 GPS unit won't charge anymore. I've seen 2 possible explanations for this problem. #1: The DC power port is broken #2: The battery won't hold a charge any longer How do I determine...


if it starts, you can verifiy if its charging by going to the system settings then power options. the green indicator should be moving left to right. this indicates its charging.

if you disconnect the battery, your magellan should still work while plugged in if the power port is ok.

The GPS won't charge


I answered this on another thread, I removed the back cover, 6 screws, and pulled the battery connector from the board, waited a minute or two, then reconnected. another poster said also that the connector for the power may have gotten loose, you can tighten that also but be careful. I did not have to do this, only the battery. Do NOT do this with a power cord plugged in, to be safe.
