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

Where can i download up to date maps for free for my magellan roadmate 800


You have to first go online and search Magellan Contact Manager to download that software to manage your device. Once that is done, you connect your device and register it. Then on the menu choose Help and "check for updates". There will be a scan and the available updates for software, maps etc will show, as will their cost if any.

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

Roadmate 800 quits receiving satellites on startup


There are various reasons this could be happening. To start eliminating the main causes, go to the Magellan site and create a profile for yourself. You will then be able to download the latest firmware update and the newest maps. This will fix connectivity issues and at the same time give you the latest and greatest of what your device has to offer.Also, if your windshield has the blueish.silver covering over it from the factory, this can inhibit GPS Signal from penetrating the windshield and reaching the antenna. You could purchase an external mount antenna which will extend and amplify the signal .
