Charge it up for a few hours, then hold the power button for a few secounds till it starts. if that fails, hit the hard rest on the side. it should start right up unless it has a proplem with the power port, which is a common problem on a lot of magellan...

Free map update fpr magellan roadmate 2000


There is no longer any map updates or accessories available for the Roadmate 2000.
Magellan has obsoleted this unit and no longer has support for it or any accessories.
I talked to them online as well as on the phone.
So basically when you get the message on your Magellan Roadmate 2000 that you maps are out of date and your unit no longer functions correctly because of this, there is no fix and the unit is now a useless paper weight.
And there are no sites online that has any software to upgrade maps for this unit.
So keep your plugs because they work on other units, but take a baseball bat and hit a home run with your roadmate 2000.
Thats all its worth now.

The usb port is not taking charge and the battery is dead


if you have a magellan 2000 as listed in the title, the 2000 can not be charged using the USB port, you need to have a car charger or a home charger to charge that unit...only certain magellan can be charged with the usb cable, but the 2000 isnt one of them...


you can read your user manual for the 2000 HERE the link is actually for a crossover, but its the same as a 2000/crossover and the 2500...magellan has removed the 2000 from there web site for some reason, but if you read the manual in that link, all models similar to your use the USB to transfer data to your unit from the PC, the charging port is below the USB port....if you need help finding a charger, just post back and ill find you one...i get all mine off ebay for just a few dollars.

Magellan Roadmate 2000.. No GPS signals


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 locate the reset button on the left side bottom of the gps and use a paper clip to depress the reset switch...it should restart on its own..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 and follow the instructions..you will have to sign on to the Magellan site before you can download anything.

if you need more help, just post back

Can I charge my Magellan roadmate with USB cable connected to the computer?


It depends on the Roadmate that you have. :
- If your Roadmate has a separate plug-in port for charging your unit IN ADDITION TO a USB port, then no, your Roadmate cannot be charged using your computer via the USB cable.
- If your Roadmate only has a USB port available for charging your unit, then yes, you can charge it via your computer via USB.
However, please note, according to Magellan, charging your unit using your PC via USB can take up to 12 hours to charge vs. 4-6 hours when using the vehicle power adapter.
FYI: This is mainly due to USB constraints on pretty much all electronic devices. USB cannot carry the same amount of power to a device. It uses what is commonly known as a 'trickle' charge to recharge a device. It carries much less current than a full-blown charger (like an AC power adapter).

Can I charge my magellan roadmate 1340 using the USB?


Should be able to so long as it is set up for it, plug it in and see if the power light comes on, then leave it for an hour, at that time see if you can turn the unit on. You will at this point have your answer to your question. Make sure the computer is on though. (i know, but i didn't put that in one time and i got a nasty message from somebody, so now i put it in.)

the usb connector block on the unit may have actually broken off from the main board. I thought I had a charging problem too until I opened the unit.

My Magellan Roadmate won't turn on


THere is nothing wrong with it. On the left side of the unit pull up the rubber cover. You will see a very small switch and a button above it or below it.
With a a pen slid the switch, and push the re set button. Then slid the switch back. and turn on the unit the way you normally do. If it doesn't light up
either you did it wrong, the unit is discharged, or there is something wrong with it. If nothing works call Magellan and if it is still under service, they will help you. Good luck to you.

Your best bet is to contact Magellan directly. Their website is not the easiest place I've ever navigated. I did not see a specific listing for the Roadmate 2000, but when I queried them about upgrades for your unit, the response was Roadmate 2000/2200T. Manuals are available, but again nothing was noted about supporting the 2000.
I've provided their phone # is below. Good luck.
