Won't shut off

My Magellan 3100 won't let me enter my return trip or turn off when I've arrived at my original destination. After trying more than 10 times to shut it off, it finally does. Then I can add a new destination and it will get me there, but the same problem on the return

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

There could be a couple of reasons of the "no shutdown":

  • firmware glitch;
  • button problem/internal corrosion of switch contacts;
  • the unit is still performing a function and has not completed doing so. Therefore it will not perform the next function such as powering off or entry of new commands/destination.
Corrective measures could require:
  • full systems reset;
  • firmware update;
  • hardware cleaning of switches/button contacts.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Magellan Roadmate 1412 won't track satellites


It might mean that the signal is disrupted. Might be a software glitch. Try going outside, get a clear view of the sky. Then reboot/reset the unit. Hold the switch to the reset position or off position for 10 seconds, it will shut off. then switch it back on. It should reacquire a signal within 2-5 minutes, then it will fix on your position. If that doesn't work, try updating your software. Call Magellan Tech Support for instructions.

Screen stuck at home address won't continue with any route, even when I go back and manually enter other addresses, was working great for 6 months


This is normal, this come straight of the satellite. To speed up process or bypass, reboot system. To Manually reboot this model, turn unit off like normal. Then when turning on, keep button down as it fires up, DO NOT release on button, keep it down until all fires up and even about 10 seconds passed, then let go. This reboots it and cleans up a lot of ****. Thanks Mike. Please if this helps, please give me 4 thumbs up, to help me and others. if that dont work, turn it off again fully charge it then reboot it manually again. This should do it!

Hello, I updated my Magellan Roadmate 1440 from the Magellan website. Now, when I try to put in a destination, the screen says "route error, your destination may be in a restricted area or unreachable...


I contacted Magellan about this issue for my Roadmate 5045. They told me to reset the unit by sliding the power bar to to the off position for 10 seconds, and then let it sit off for a minute or so. When it powered up, the issue seemed to be resolved. But it comes back. Successive efforts using this method have about a 80% success rate.

How to set the distance to destination


Not sure about this one, but most of these gps units have a sub menu in them that will ask you what to display. You activate them in one of the settings menu, and it will show you how far to destination automatically. It is programed right into the unit, just not sure how you do it any more since i don't use Magellan anymore. Sorry. Hope this helps

3000T won'y shut off


When you turn it off, do you hold the off button in until it turns off? As for it won't let you reenter data, is the destination off or cancelled to put in a new?

Magellan Maestro 3100 locks


You can try a hard reset. Hold in the reset button (left side of unit, use a pin or toothpick), while turning on the unit. If you don't get the blue Magellan screen, you'll have to try again. If you get a screen with a blue background and a menu, turn it off and try again.
So far, this has fixed:
1. unit won't go on
2. unit reboots when routing
3. unit turns off after a few seconds

At least, it's fixed it for me. No idea why this happens, but it's pretty damn annoying. Give it a try.
