You will need to send the unit in for repair. There is nothing you can do at home to repair this problem.

Computer does not recognize it


assuming your using a windows xp or 2000 os, try another cable if you have one..turn the gps off, plug in the usb cord and restart the gps. if that fails, if the cable is connected to a port on the front of the computer,move the usb cable to a rear port on the computer and try the previous way i just explained.

if those fail, disconnect all usb devises connected to the pc and restart the computer and try again. (always use a rear port on the pc if you can)

good luck

WE CHARGE THE MAGELLAN GPS AND TURN IT OFF. BUT WHEN WE GO TO USE IT AGAIN IT IS DEAD. I ONLY HAVE THE LIGHTER OUTLET TO HOOK UP FOR POWER SO WHEN I NEED TO PROGRAM IT IN THE HOUSE I DO NOT HAVE A WAY TO...


Hello kdiltzbook,

Most GPS units can be charged three different ways:

1. Connection to a computer via USB port
2. Connection to a automobile via cigarette lighter plug
3. Connection to a wall outlet via an AC adapter

Typically most GPS devices these days include only the USB cord. Some GPS units also include the cigarette lighter plug. For most GPS units the cigarette lighter plug and AC adapter are optional accessories have to be purchased in addition to the GPS.

You don't mention which model of Magellan GPS you have so I am not sure which cords your GPS should have included. It sounds like you have the cigarette lighter cord and the USB cord? I am sure that Magellan has an AC adapter available for your GPS. You will want to contact them directly (their website is http://www.magellangps.com) or visit an electronics store that sells Magellan GPS receivers (such as Best Buy™) to purchase the adapter.

However, most GPS receivers can be charged from the USB programming cord on the computer. However, ensure you are plugging the cord directly into a USB 2.0 on the computer itself NOT a port on a USB hub. (A USB hub may not output enough power to actually power and charge the GPS.)

You will also want to check and replace the fuse on the automobile plug.

I believe that both the USB and automobile cords should be charging the GPS. If neither adapter is charging the unit then the problem may be the GPS unit itself. The GPS may have a bad battery or problem with its charge circuitry. If that’s the case the unit may require factory service as the battery pack is generally not considered to be end user replaceable.


Best Regards,
