Magellan roadmate 800 won't boot up

I hope some one can help! My brand new Magellan 800 won't boot up. I turn it on the magellan symbol comes up then the driver warning page, I hit ok and after that all I get is the blue screen with the Magellan symbol and nothing more, I read the instruction and it suggests waiting 15 minutes or more, but after 3 hours, no joy. Anyone have any suggestions??? I bought it from a wholesale store and all sales were final, so I can not return it.

Try removing the battery and leaving it out for a long time (overnight) and replace the next day and see if that helps.

I have a Magellan RoadMate 800 want to update

there is a firmware update (2.12) for your 800, you can download it HERE then just follow the directions to update your unit...the link above it for the 800 north american version, so if you have the Europe version, just got to the support page and select your unit.

you must register your magellan on their website before they will let you download anything.

if you need further help, just reply to this post.

Reinstalling magellan road 800 on pc with out cd

You can download Magellan MapSend and/or VantagePoint from their website for free and reinstall on your computer:

These will let your computer talk to your GPS again.

If you need to reinstall maps, though, you can't get a new CD for free. You would have to start a customer support case with Magellan and provide proof of purchase.

check the fuse in the plug - usually a ring around the end that unscrews and the fuse and a small spring will be inside the small metal pin that sticks out the end. Hope this helps, please post again if not :)
