Question about GPS

The GPS starts up then quits about about 30

Our Magellan Maestro GPS starts up then quits after about about 30 seconds. It was working fine a few weeks ago. It normally is unplugged and stored in the glove compartment. It is about 1 1/2 years old.

If your not turning the gps off totally(holding power button for 10 secounds) it will drain the battery because even though it appears off.

My Magellan Maestro 5310 is stuck on the Magellan start up screen. the little power bar on the the bottom of screen comes up then thats it. It won;t begin to load the next screen. I have tried to reset...


Hello There, I have a Magellan myself, besides me knowing some things or two about GPS'S

Give this a try, seems to work for me and others most the time.


Try this for me to see if this works: Let me know. It needs to be rebooted. Turn off, by holding off button down. Then once it is completely off, then turn it on, BUT when you go to turn it on, keep on button depressed, all the way until it turns on and then some for about 15 seconds, now you just rebooted system. Let me know, if does work, please click on the thumbs up to showed your a happy customer. Thanks Mike

I have not used my Magellan Maestro 4040 in quite some time and I charged it today for 4 and 1/2 hours and can not get it to turn on.


Hi davidhcaldwe

the following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

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


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.

Why does my magellan maestro 3100 turn off immediately after I turn it on?


Hi catscan990 Its probably not charging, but plug it into a known good charger and let it charge for a few hours then see if it starts.

press and hold the power button for upto 10 seconds or untill it starts.

If it starts normally and is still plugged to the charger, go to the main menu/options/power and see if the changing indicator is moving from side to side. If it is not moving,

The following Magellan 800,860,2000,2200t,2500,(crossover) 3000,3050,3100,3140,4000,4040,4050,5310 and the 6000t 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 may also have another issue with the screen but you need to find out why its not charging 1st.

You can get it repaired
here
Or buy the port here

Let me know if you need further help!

Magellan Maestro 4250 freezing up


I just purchased a referb from TigerDirect and the only issue I discovered was a lockup when the unit goes to sleep. Try holding down the power button for 15 seconds then release it to cycle the unit. Then hold the power button down again for 5 second to start it back up. I had to do this for my bluetooth to work and not freeze up. Now I just turn it on and off manually and avoid having it go to sleep. I also downloaded the firmware update to 4.86, you can download it from Magellan's website. My unit works great so if that doesn't work contact Magellan and I'm sure they will have a solution.

There seems to be issues with magellan batterys, being subjected to the cold has also been proven to effect the battery life, magellan offers a 1 year service on all units. I hope this has answered your question.
