Power unit up from a completely off state. While it's starting up, hold the Mute and Menu buttons down the entire time. It will start up, then flash. As soon as you see the flash let go of the Mute and Menu buttons. Then, as soon as the lights come on around the unit quickly press and hold the Mute and Menu buttons again. The unit will boot into the Windows CE operating system. You then double click on My Device and delete HDD3 or, if you have a SD card in the slot, cut and paste the HDD3 to the SD card. Power the unit off holding the power button down for 7-10 seconds. Take out the SD card, if you have one in, then power up the unit. It should restart likes it's fresh from the factory. I will not be held responsible for any problems or bricked units! DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!

The magellan roadmate 60000 T will not come on and i can not chage it.


hi donnajenkins

the following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 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

I need a USB driver for Vista for a Magellan Roadmate 6000T


theres no specific driver for your device or vista as long as your running xp sp2 or higher, your device drive installs automaticlly. if it doesnt, there could be a few reasons why.

make sure the battery is fully charged and using a known good usb cable and assuming there is no problems with the gps (like its been formated) turn the 6000t on. (do not connect the usb cable yet)

(for people that bought one of these and cant start it, you must hold the power button for about 15 seconds)

once you enter the agreement page click ok, then connect your 6000t to your pc and wait until
it tells you, your devise is not installed.

My magellan crossover gps keeps shutting off in navigation mode - why?


make sure its charging..plug it in to a known good charger..go to the main menu, then systems options then power the power bar on the bottom should be moving from left to right..if its not, its probably the dc power port

If your GPS is not charging, the following models are known to have faulty power ports.

Magellan Maestro or Roadmate..800 860 2000 2200t 2500 3000 3050
3100 3140 4000 4040 4050 6000t



you can buy a power port HERE


or get it repaired HERE

Cant route to addresses in certain cities


Perhaps it is just a matter of old maps. According to the Magellan web pages, new maps will be available for download and update in August 2007.
