Question about Magellan RoadMate 800 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

GPS freezes when I need it to work!

18 month old purchase of Magellan Roadmate 800... long standing problem of the GPS not holding a charge when used without external power cord or car charger. I asked about getting a new battery and wasn't given a satisfactory answer by Magellan tech support.
Now the freezing up is a more recent problem. Can't go beyond turning on the GPS...then it's frozen.

    I have the same problem. My less than 2 years old unit freezes up so often. Today it took 40 minutes to find where my car was. I have turn it off and on a million times. I do not know what to do with it.

Magellan 2000 doesn't power up


try replacing the battery. ususally if the battery is dead it will freeze or not turn on. if this doesn't work magellan will replace it with a new one at a very reasonable price. I just replaced a magellan 800 with a magellan 3210 for $132.00. your may get a better deal. call magellan
if you have an a/c 110 volt to 5 volt converter for the magellan, try charging it in the house with that one rather than the car charger.

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:
http://www.magellangps.com/products/software.asp

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.

Magellan 2200T won't completely boot up


Reset unit, and then turn off, but hold power button for at least 10 seconds, then power back on, and when ever you turn off unit, hold power button for 10 seconds, had the same problem with mine, this solved it, it seems that just turning off the unit till screen shuts down puts it in a sleep mode. Hope this solves your problem.
