Question about Magellan Meridian GPS Receiver
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.

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

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....
