Hello,
Magellan IS slow to make contact to satellites.
Hint: wait for satellite capture BEFORE start moving,
it will be a bit faster...

Yours,
André

Road mate 700 won't pick up satellite signal


If this unit has an internal battery it may be bad, other wise I would reload the software or get a updated version of the operating software. Have you contacted Magellan?

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

Self tests show ok, reset ok, satellite just says searching


make sure the battery is charged up good, then take it outside and turn it on and leave it in clear view of the open sky for up to 30 minutes to acquire the satellites especially if its been reset.

if that fails, reset the unit...turn it on, then slide the reset switch on the top of your 800 to the opposite position and once it turns off, slide the reset back to the normal position and turn it on again and take it back outside and let it in clear view of the open sky for up to 30 minutes.

if that fails..go HERE and get the update for which ever 800 model you have...you will have to sign on to the Magellan site before you can download anything.

if you need more help, just post back
