Turn the gps on and go to the system screen, go to the power option and see if the green lights are blinking. then set the power to turn off in 10 minutes. the gps will go in stand by till the unit either moves or you hit the power button again. if you have a charging problem on your magellan, i can help you get it fixed.

Turn on get a screen saying magellan thats it


  • Check if the unit is fully charged. Because if the unit is not charge you will just stay in the magellan logo.
  • If the unit is full charge and still stay in the Magellan logo find the reset button and press and hold the reset button for 15 seconds while its on and then release.
  • If still the same thats the time need to call the technicall support hotline of magellan if they can repair it free of charge.
  • If you need clarification feel free to reply to this solution.

Tip

Problem charging MAGELLAN GPS.


I found there are select 120v AC adapters that will work on Magellan GPS. When a working 120v or 12v adapter to mini USB adapter is plugged into the unit, the battery bars will be 'scrolling' and therefore charging.

When your adapter, or even USB cable from your computer, is plugged into the GPS unit, and the battery goes to FULL, it is NOT CHARGING. The battery bars must be SCROLLING for the unit to charge. In this case, get a different adapter until it works.

This was tested on a Magellan 1412, and may apply to other Magellan GPS.

Magellan Maestro GPS #MM3225. Screen display this


The unit is now connected to your computer, and you can actually access its filesystem through windows. It is also charging the battery in the unit. I wouldn't want to mess around with the files, though, unless you know absolutely what you are doing. Plus, it's also a good idea to turn the unit off before removing it from the computer.

Magellan 405 won't take a charge from the car


hi tc76,

plug it in and let it charge for awhile using a know good charger, like the car charger. it has a indicator light to let you know its charging.

now press and hold the power button for up to ten seconds until it starts. if that fails


this is a very common problem for the models listed below.

the following magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050 and the 6000 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...

you can get help to repaired it, here
or buy the port here

if you need further help, just let me know.

I can't tell if my magellan maestro 4000 gps is charging.


this could be happening for a few reasons but the most common is that its probably not charging.

before checking anything else, plug your 4000 in to a known good charger, then press and hold the power button for up to ten seconds till it starts.

if that fails, its likely not charging

this is very common problem with this and many model magellans.
