Question about Magellan RoadMate™ 1212 Car GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Need specific instructions on charging the system

Won't turn on after charging. I have the a/c adapter that I purchased from Magellan. Need more info on this. The manual for the GPS from downloading doesn't give any real info about the charging.

Thank You

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.

Will not turn on/ just started this morning


You need to check if it is properly charged, if it is not properly charged, then it will not come on. Remove the gps, then try to plug it using its adapter, to see if it will charge, if it does, then try to turn it on and it will come on. Test the battery in another magellan gps also to see if it works, if it does not, then replace it, same thing goes to the adapter,if it does not, then replace it with a new one.
This should solve the problem.

I have had to reset my magellan maestro 5310, but now cannot get passed the system settings and system status pages. I think I have to download something to get it back up and running but not sure where to...


Hi tedmare1

you can download the 4.72 update for your 5310 HERE but follow the directions to the
letter or it will render it inoperable...read all the instructions aftrer downloading and before you
run the update.

make sure either the battery is fully charged, or you have it plugged in to the home charger
NOTE: the usb cord will not charge a magellan 5310, so you need to use the home charger or
fully charge it woth the car charger before starting...if the download is interupted for any reason,
the update will fail and the 5310 will not fully boot.

you might have to register your 5310 with the site before downloading (you used to ) but maybe not since they changed their site within the last few days.

let me know if you need more help or info

My maestro 4000 cuts off during normal operation


its possible the unit is running off the adapter and loses contact and shuts off. this is a common problem on these type of magellan gps. typically they need a new power port so the battery will charge up and the adapter wont lose contact.

I'm confused? Did you plug in the charger or the computer adapter. It needs to charge using the power cord. The USB cord will likely not charge this unit.

WE CHARGE THE MAGELLAN GPS AND TURN IT OFF. BUT WHEN WE GO TO USE IT AGAIN IT IS DEAD. I ONLY HAVE THE LIGHTER OUTLET TO HOOK UP FOR POWER SO WHEN I NEED TO PROGRAM IT IN THE HOUSE I DO NOT HAVE A WAY TO...


Hello kdiltzbook,

Most GPS units can be charged three different ways:

1. Connection to a computer via USB port
2. Connection to a automobile via cigarette lighter plug
3. Connection to a wall outlet via an AC adapter

Typically most GPS devices these days include only the USB cord. Some GPS units also include the cigarette lighter plug. For most GPS units the cigarette lighter plug and AC adapter are optional accessories have to be purchased in addition to the GPS.

You don't mention which model of Magellan GPS you have so I am not sure which cords your GPS should have included. It sounds like you have the cigarette lighter cord and the USB cord? I am sure that Magellan has an AC adapter available for your GPS. You will want to contact them directly (their website is http://www.magellangps.com) or visit an electronics store that sells Magellan GPS receivers (such as Best Buy™) to purchase the adapter.

However, most GPS receivers can be charged from the USB programming cord on the computer. However, ensure you are plugging the cord directly into a USB 2.0 on the computer itself NOT a port on a USB hub. (A USB hub may not output enough power to actually power and charge the GPS.)

You will also want to check and replace the fuse on the automobile plug.

I believe that both the USB and automobile cords should be charging the GPS. If neither adapter is charging the unit then the problem may be the GPS unit itself. The GPS may have a bad battery or problem with its charge circuitry. If that’s the case the unit may require factory service as the battery pack is generally not considered to be end user replaceable.


Best Regards,
