    If the USB charging connector on the unit is loose, it may have actually broken off from the main board. Just found this FixYa site trying to find out how to fix this problem. You can confirm this problem by opening the unit (if you are up to it): Using a safety pin, remove the rubbber plugs covering the four screws on the corners of the backside of the unit. Using a small jewelers screwdriver, remove the four screws and pry open the unit from the topside if it does not separate open right away.

The usb connector block on the unit may have actually broken off from the main board. I thought I had a charging problem too until I opened the unit.

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.

Worked for a year, now says not charged when plugged in


Try to use a wall adapter and charge it for 4 hrs before you plug it in the car because it is much better if you use a wall adapter it gives more power.

I just got a Magellan roadmate 1200 over the weekend from a friend and when I plug it in it loads to a screen that says the usb is connected follow pc instructions


The USB must be for charging the unit and downloading updates when it becomes available. You have to unplug the USB and use the battery power to put in addresses .My 1200 does the same.
