Question about Magellan Meridian GPS Receiver

Magellan Meridian Screen


I was hoping someone could tell me where I could pick up a screen for a Magellan Meridian. A good second hand one out of a damaged unit would be fine. I dropped it recently and the screen stopped working properly. I have connected it to the computer and everything else seems to be okay. I live in Australia and Magellan in Australia won't send me a screen. They want me to send them the unit. The are in Perth which is about 5000km away.

SOURCE: frozen screen when turned on

Kevin, Hmm... it worked fine the first two times you ran it, then all of a sudden it freezes at the user screen?? I'm not sure if your able to do this, but at the user menu, try pressing the (-)zoom out key and the repeat button a the same time. -If it does bring up the "secret" menu, try clearing user data. -If you have a program that allows you to update the software, version 4.32 I'm guessing (or 5.14) then at that "secret" menu select NAND Flash Format and re-load the software. If you can't access the "secret" menu and it locks up hard at the user menu w/out any responsiveness, I would suspect the hard drive is either bad or has corrupt data. I'm not sure if you can order just the hard drive from magellan/thales/tomtom/shaw but if you can then just replace the hard drive, nand flash format (above) and re-install your software via usb. Additionally, not that it helps your problem, but atleast you would know the pwr and keypad work if this works, press Enter, Cancel and power button at the same time, as this SHOULD power off your unit. Let me know if any new symptoms/problems come up or if you need further instructions. -Daniel

How do you set waypoints on the Magellan Meridian gold. To and from a location?

Press and hold the GOTO button for 2 seconds. A "Mark" screen will appear. If you are saving your current location, highlight the "Save" at bottom of screen and press enter. This will save you current location. You can edit the name of the waypoint at this screen also. You can do this before you save the waypoint or you can go to Menu/Database/User/Waypoint (the one you want to edit)/Enter. At this screen you can edit the name by pressing the arrow up or down to get to the name field and press "enter" to get to the alphabet screen. If you are entering a waypoint using coordinates, do the above but edit the coordinates to the ones you want to use and then save.

I unscrewed the 6 screws holding the back to the Meridian Gold unit and looked at the contacts. I noticed that one of the curved prongs that makes contact from the battery to the unit was bent low so I knew it was not making contact and preventing the unit from working. So I very gently took the small screwdriver and pulled it out a bit so that contact was the same height as the other. Screwed the back back on, reinstalled the batteries, presto - works like a charm now. Anyone can do it.

Now I need someone to tell me what alternative GPS map packages giv e the most bang for the buck as my Map Send CDs were accidently thrown out by a well meaning person cleaning up my desk....

Need to replace the screen

Either contact these guys; or at the top of the page is a "find a dealer" link if you prefer to get it done locally. Possible lower cost solution is try local repair shops/second hand shops or ask the local garbage guys (people rarely ask and they can often drop one round the following day)- they just might have the same unit with a good screen but unrepairable for other reasons. You could get lucky. Hope this helps :)
