Well the cost is high IF it is even a repairable brand. It requires a new motherboard and is usually more costly to repair than nbuying a replacement

Problem charging MAGELLAN GPS.


I found there are select 120v AC adapters that will work on Magellan GPS. When a working 120v or 12v adapter to mini USB adapter is plugged into the unit, the battery bars will be 'scrolling' and therefore charging.

When your adapter, or even USB cable from your computer, is plugged into the GPS unit, and the battery goes to FULL, it is NOT CHARGING. The battery bars must be SCROLLING for the unit to charge. In this case, get a different adapter until it works.

This was tested on a Magellan 1412, and may apply to other Magellan GPS.

Our magellan keeps turning off. the plug seem loose. could it be the cord or is it the battery and can it be changed


Check your power cord. You may be losing power at the plug. When plugged in it may be losing contact with the recepticle. The power indicator light initially comes on but, breaks contact and therefore stops charging the unit. If this is the case you can sometimes plug into an adapter and get a tighter fit.

Garmin GPS not switching on


If the reset described by justaskjoe doesn't help, then check the power cord. There's a fuse inside the power plug, held in by a screw ring which is notorious for coming loose. Make sure the fuse and spring are in place and the ring is screwed on firmly. My daughter's C340 stopped working because that ring came loose and the fuse fell out. Also remove the unit from its mounting cradle and snap it back in to ensure good contact.

Fuse blown on cigarette lighter Saturn 2001


It sounds like you have a bad charging cable for the GPS or the cable is overloading the cigarette lighter.

The cigarette lighter is designed for less power then a 12v power outlet.

Therefore it is easy to blow the fuse for the cigarette light if you install something that draws too much power.

Problems with Magellan Maestro? 4040 GPS power connection


Hi,

I also have the same problem - the yellow power jack has broken connections. I fixed it by soldering it back. In my unit, the connection pads under the external power jack were intact and I was able to solder the jack easily. The audio out jack nearby has also come-off the PC board, along with the pads. I am not able to re-solder these back. Since the audio jack is part of the speaker circuit I have lost the text-to-speech function!

Hope you are able to fix yours.

Garmin 200w does not hold charge


Hello Jeffery81,

Sounds like either a bad charger or a bad rechargeable battery pack inside of the GPS. If the unit doesn't remain powered up even when it is plugged into the charger, my guess is that the charger is the problem. Do you have an alternate way to charge the GPS? Like a 12 volt vehicle power cord or a USB cable to connect it to your computer? If so, try charging the GPS using that alternate method. If the item charges and functions normally, you will know for sure that the problem lies with the charger. If not, then the problem is either the battery pack inside the GPS or some other part of the unit's charging circuitry. In that case, you should contact Garmin technical support for additional assistance.

Best Regards,
Ken
