Make sure its charging..plug it in to a known good charger..go to the main menu, then systems options then power the power bar on the bottom should be moving from left to right..if its not, its probably the dc power port

If your GPS is not charging, the following models are known to have faulty power ports.

Magellan Maestro or Roadmate..800 860 2000 2200t 2500 3000 3050
3100 3140 4000 4040 4050 6000t



you can buy a power port HERE


or get it repaired HERE

SOURCE: My magellan crossover GPS is not recognized by my PC

I had the same problem.

The device drivers are included with the firmware updates.
download the firmware from www.magellangps.com

Even if you don't need a firmware update run the installer. The installer will stop when it can't find your gps. Before the installer stops it will extract the drivers. Right-click on your gps in windows "device manager" & select "update driver". Windows should be able to find the drivers now.

thanks,
CC

you need to use windows 2000 or XP to link your 3000 to your computer. if your using one or the other already, then try another usb port or another cable.

Used last week now i turn it on first screen comes but will not go any further then shuts down


press and hold the power button for up to 10 seconds while its plugged in with a known good charger...if you still have problems, keep reading

The following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and 6000t

i fix these and many other magellan gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.

assuming your car charger is working (the little green light is on) and your magellan still wont start up after holding the power button while its plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not start..read below

this is actually a very common problem with these magellan power ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then the factory port.

if your able to replace that power port yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that sells them for help.

due to some dubious "experts" on fixya, im not permitted to help you directly, but please follow the link above to get further help.

let me know if you need more help or info

Display only blinks, how to reset the unit?


hey there michael_wick,

you need to install version 1.68 first before the 2.14 unless you have that installed already.

why cant you update it via the USB cable to your computer...all magellan GPS require at least Windows OS XP service pack 2 to sync with the computer.

if your not seeing the crossover listed in your computer, can you see the usb connection wizard in the lower left of the task bar on your computer.

btw, is this a true crossover, or a 2200T thats been upgrated with the crossover firmware?

It wont show the streets and wont shut off


try and reset the your crossover. on the left side under the sd card slot is the reset. depending on the date it was manufactured, it could have one of two different switches. one has a switch you slide down and then back up to reset it. it must be in the up position for your crossover to turn back on.

turn the unit on, then slide the switch down, then back up!

if it is a later model crossover, you just need to depress the button with the gps on and it will reset.

hi gtrojan even with a deed battery or no battery at all for that matter, your crossover should still start normally while connected to external power.

first try the reset, with the unit on (even if it is dim)use a paper clip and insert it in the little hole on the side. if it starts normally and is still plugged to the charger, go to the main menu/options/power and see if the chaging indicator is moving from side to side. if it is not moving,

you may also have another issue with the screen but you need to find out why its not charging 1st.
