SOURCE: When my gps is connected in my car this text shows

The car charger you are using for the unit is probably incorrect. If its not the OEM charger then it will put the GPS into "USB/PC mode".

Follow the on-screen instructions, do not use usb-extension cables. Try a new thick and short (well shielded) usb cable, connected it directly to the rear usb ports of your PC.

Magellan Maestro GPS #MM3225. Screen display this

The unit is now connected to your computer, and you can actually access its filesystem through windows. It is also charging the battery in the unit. I wouldn't want to mess around with the files, though, unless you know absolutely what you are doing. Plus, it's also a good idea to turn the unit off before removing it from the computer.

Before you hook up your player, check the settings in it. Find your settings menu and see if you can change it from MTP to MSC, look in your instruction book to see if that is an option. Then hook it up to your computer.

I just got a Magellan roadmate 1200 over the weekend from a friend and when I plug it in it loads to a screen that says the usb is connected follow pc instructions

The USB must be for charging the unit and downloading updates when it becomes available. You have to unplug the USB and use the battery power to put in addresses .My 1200 does the same.

Maestro 3250 Charging

I accidentally ran into this problem today when I inadvertantly plugged the wrong charger into the unit. I'm guessing that the device isn't getting the precise current it's expecting and thus thinks it's plugged into a computer. I'd suggest getting hold of a different charger and see if the problem goes away.
