If its not charging the battery, the meter will say full even though the battery is dead..its a very common problem with alot of gps with the usb as a charging port. my solution is if this is still under warranty, i would send it back to magellan or where ever you bought it, because sooner or later the usb port is going to totally fail and wont even start up if plugged in and your going to be left with an expensive paper weight.

Broken screen Magellan roadmate 1212


Hi.
It is actually much cheaper to buy a new unit than to repair it.
It cost around $150 and above, depends on how crack it is and what model of magellan you're using.

With Magellan? You want free updates? If Magellan doesn't offer them then you are out of luck. At least on the legal software end of things. That's all I'm saying about that

Missing SD Map Card on Magellan Roadmate 1212


Unfortunately even if you do find a card it will not work with your unit because the cards have to be for that unit.If it is from another unit the codes will not allow it to work. The only option I know of is to purchase your map for that unit and put it on a sd card

Magellan Roadmate 1212 won't stay on when unplugged


Man, I DO commiserate with you on that one, but did you specify to them that the battery should be checked?
as that is probably your problem, now that I know the unit has been checked and the worst possible outcome
from your buying an extra battery is that you will HAVE AN EXTRA BATTERY for those times when you need
total portability.

So, make sure you try a brand new battery and if that solves your problem, then buy several.
