Re-chargeable batteries have a problem in as much as they tend to fall off in preformance very quickly.

The decay curve can be reached in minutes on worn (numerous re-charged) batteries

If you wish to use Nickel Cadium batteries research the ones with the highest AH rating and get two sets plus a decent charger which discharges the batteries to ground zero before applying a charge voltage.

That way you get a longer life out of the batteries and if you play your cards right have a spare set sitting fully charged ready for use.

Duracell batteries still have the best life of any that I have used , it is just the cost that makes them a killer

Navagon 7100 wont turn on


Hi guimonds,

Make certain you have the unit plugged into external power, and the indicator light (LED) is ON. It would be best if the LED shows "Green", indicating a full charge on the battery also.

Place a blunt-tipped object (larger paperclip or toothpick with sharp end cut off) into the hole at the reset location, which is on the bottom left part of the GPS. Press down for 10-15 seconds on the reset button, then release. Now, press and hold the On/Off/Standby for at least 6 seconds (try 10-15 seconds if needed) to power unit back on. If there is still no power-up, then your unit may be defective. Download the complete 110-page manual from here for more information:

I hope this helps get it working. If I can help further, please let me know. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

Gps trouble


hi miguel9374,

check and see if its charging. turn on your 4040 and go to the mail menu, the use the arrow on the right and scroll to the next page, then go to the options tab, now the power tab..with the unit hooked up to a known good charger (the car charger should have a green or red light on, if its on, its working) in the power option tab youll see a battery meter, it should be moving left to right if its charging.

if its not, its probably the power port, which is a very common problem with this model and other magellan gps.

let me know if its charging or you might just need a battery, which i can point you to.

I have a legacy item (Roadmate 800). The battery was dead so I ordered a new one. The new battery powers on the unit but when I plug in ac charger I don't get a solid orange light, but a flashing green...


This is very common problem with this and many model of magellans.

Try the car charger.

Make sure
green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

The following Magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 3000, 3050, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 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
buy the port or get it repaired, HERE


if the links dont work or If you need further help, just let me know.

remove the the four screws from the back cover and the back will come off exposing the battery.

careful while removing the cover, the speaker wire is connected to it but you can change the battery with it connected.

Faint screen image


when you first power on using lower right (power) button, wait 6 seconds for the intro screen to finish. The upper left (up) button increases screen contrast. Hold this one down for a few seconds and the screen should darken. The middle left (down) button decreases contrast.

If this doesn't work, try turning off by holding the power button.
Hold down upper left AND upper right while turning unit on. This initiates diagnostic mode and contrast is darker by default. Bottom of screen is a button test area which darkens a symbol for each successful button press. Use it to diagnose a button problem. Turn off power and on again to leave diagnostic mode.

I wish you success playing with the Etrex.
