Make sure green light is on if using the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..

if you tried charging it with both house charger and car charger and tried to start it like i explain and it still will not start, its most likely a bad power port which is very common with this model and many other magellan models.

SOURCE: magellan roadmate 1200 will not turn on

plug it in to either the home charger or the car charger for a few minutes,(is the green light on, on the car charger) then press the power button for up to 15 seconds.if that fails, try a hard reset. little pin hole on the side(use a paper clip) if that fails you might have a bad usb connector.

SOURCE: I need driver for magellan roadmate 1200...thk

there is no specific driver for your gps. you need to hook it up to a computer running windows XP sp2 or greater for the computer to recognize and install it.

if your getting an error when you hook it up, let me know and can try something else

The gps will not turn on


well thats a guess only you can really determine

If you have connected it to a power source and it wont turn on after say 30 mins of charge... then it may well be a collapsed battery. But most times in these situations you get a glimmer of start.
Replace battery..

If nothing happens at all, feel the transformer part of the charger ( unless its USB PC type) to see if there is any warmth to indicate it is working. If you have a multi meter place the MM needles on the outer barrel of the plug and the inner and set voltage to 5.5 or ^v if you get a reading then the unit is OK and back to the GPS.

You also need to inspect the input plug to ensure it has not detatched itself from the board. There is no internal fuse or user servicable parts inside, other than the battery. This can be removed and replaced if you are careful when opening it and not lose screws.

It is often better to send it to a Magellan agent to have this done as it then has either 30 days warranty or sometimes 3 months.
