SOURCE: magellan gps 2000 won't lock

Possible solution, at least my GPS2000 finally locked up. Initialize; enter current location and time; wait until there are more than four (I had seven) satellites available; find a location nearby that has a clear view nearly to the horizon in all directions; place the GPS2000 on a stationary base with the antenna as horizontal as practical; wait; mine finally locked up after perhaps 30 to 40 minutes. Patience and an abundance of satellites, I think, are the answer. Good luck.

SOURCE: how do I change the battery in a magellan roadmate

remove the the four screws from the back cover and the back will come off exposing the battery.

careful while removing the cover, the speaker wire is connected to it but you can change the battery with it connected.

chance are its not the battery!

make sure green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (upto ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

the following magellan 2000,2200t,2500,3000,3100,3140,4000,4040 and the 4050 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...i sell these power ports and will repair them for anyone thats not able to do it themselves.

you can get it repaired, or the part here
or buy the port here

if you need further help, just let me know

How do I reset the time?

Actually the time is sent to you by the GPS satellites. To set the time do a MENU>>VIEW>>SETTINGS and use the down arrow to scroll to the date and time and then set your GMT and Daylight Time Settings. For example: New York is now GMT -0:500 DST is set to OFF

I also have a Magellan Triton 300 and I can not change it to my time zone.. how can I change it?

From the user manual at
it says:
Setting the Time Zone
The time and date information will be computed from information from the GPS satellites so there is
no requirement for you to input any time or date information. However, to make the time accurate
for your location you must select the correct time zone.
1. From the Map screen press MENU.
2. Select View.
3. Select Settings.
4. Scroll down and select Date & Time.
5. Select the Time Zone field.
Press button
6. From the drop-down menu, select your current time zone. (Time zones are not changed
automatically when travelling. If you travel to an area with a different time zone, you will
need to change it here for accurate time information.)
7. Repeat the process for the Daylight Savings field.
8. Press ESC when done.

Maestro 4250 frozen after incomplete 2009 map up date

I had same problem on 3/28/09.

According to Magellan and other people who have experienced the same problem, this is terminal to the unit. It can be caused by downloading the 08/09 Magellan map upgrade, which can cause the unit to permanently lock up. Magellan is well aware of the problem, and should offer to replace your unit if you have the problem. If you elect to have it repaired, Magellan can download the map upgrade for you in the repair process. Here is a site noting the same problem:

Questions for Magellan: 1) why would they sell, in 2009, gps units with old 2007 maps loaded in them, requiring the purchaser to buy a current map, and 2) if there is a problem with downloading the current maps, why is there not an advisement or warning to the installer.

Other than replacing the unit, there appears to be no "fix".
