If your sure its charged,(is the green light on the car charger) hold the power button for upto 15 seconds till it starts.

I have had that problem. I believe the Magellan cradel design is defective. I expect it is not making contact and you need a new one.
BUT . First.
you need to know if you cord is OK.
is th elight on the end that plugs in.
use a volt meter to test to see if DC voltage is coming out the tip that
plugs into the GPS. ( sombody at Radio Shack might check the
ohms ( continuity of the cord . or you can do it with a light bulb, a 1.5 v battery and a wire. (one end of battery to tip of plug in .other end of battery to wire ,. other end of wire to each part of the cig lighter plug in.
if light comes on, that wire is OK . then check the other part of the
tip to the other part of the connector.
If the cord is OK>
Plug it in again in the car.. Wiggle the cord to make sure one of the
wires isn't almost broken so it works and then when bent , does not.
then wiggle the cradle , maybe reinstall the cradel.
the Whole time , you must turn on the power button on the GPS
each time you try something .If the button is off, you can have everything right and nothing will happen.
If it is the cradle they are about $15 on e-bay. There are a lot of them
that's why I think there is a problem.20 people would not be selling them unless there was a big demand.

magellan web site is a good place to look. you`ll probably have to purchase and download to your pc then hook your magellen to you pc. they have data cables for that that usually come with it. or get one on ebay. Magellen usually has an app you download to your pc and plug in your roadmate and it updates it and for an additional fee they sell you updated operating system of you gps.

Magellen 2036 auto off


the receptacle where you plug the power supply is probably broken away from the circuit board inside. it is poorly designed and will fail
it can be soldered back on if you can get inside.check to make sure your power adapter has power coming out of it.

MAGELLEN ROADMATE 700 NO POWER


One of the wires in your power cord could be broken. If you have the a/c adapter, see if you can power up with that. If you know someone else with a working Magellan, you could borrow his cord to test your unit.

If not, check the car adapter with a continuity tester. Put one tester probe on one of the side springs of the car plug and the other probe on the outside metal of the GPS plug. If that shows continuity, place one tester probe on the end tip of the car plug and the other inside the the GPS plug.

If either of those do not show continuity, first take apart the auto side of the cord. Check the fuse and the wire to contact solder joints. If they seem okay, carefully cut back the molded plastic from the GPS end and examine the wire to solder joints. If any are broken, replace the cord or resolder the joints.
