Either the charger or battery is gone, how can I tell before buying both



hi tracyw23

if you can get it to turn on, go to the system settings, then power options. while plugged in, the battery indicator should be moving from left to right if its charging. if its not moving, wiggle the cord where it goes in the 2000 and see if the meter starts charging.

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

How do I register and charge my Magellan GPS


In order to "register" your Mag_1440 (or any other Magellan), you need to create an account on the Magellan_GPS Web-Site. You will basically supply your name, address, tel_number, e_mail, and the model and serial_number of your GPS... Once you have created your account and registered you GPS, you may be prompted with Links for software and/or map updates... As far as "charging" the 1440/1470, you only need to plug the GPS_Unit into the Car/Auto_Cigarette outlet via the 12v power cord that came supplied in your package... One can also use any standard 120v (AC) to Mini_USB charger (i.e Motorola Razr Cell-Phone AC_Power-Pack) to charge up the GPS unit...Unfortunately, the Computer_USB to Mini_USB cable (in the box) supposedly will NOT power/charge up the GPS... This Mini_USB cable is used to download the latest firmware (v2-20) onto the GPS (approx. 75_MB)... Therefore, before you attempt to download the latest firmware onto the 1440/1445/1470, be sure that it has been sufficiently charged via the Car_Adpater, or an auxilliary AC-Power Adpater... Hope this helps...

Magellan 405 won't take a charge from the car


hi tc76,

plug it in and let it charge for awhile using a know good charger, like the car charger. it has a indicator light to let you know its charging.

now press and hold the power button for up to ten seconds until it starts. if that fails


this is a very common problem for the models listed below.

the following magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050 and the 6000 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...

you can get help to repaired it, here
or buy the port here

if you need further help, just let me know.

Replacing the battery in a magellan maestro 4370


thats a fairly new unit and i doubt if the battery is shot already. it could be, but verify that is shot.

1st verify that its charging. hook up the home or car charger, then go into the main menu, then options, then power options and see if the battery indicator is moving left to right..if it is, its charging. if its not moving and shows a low battery, then its not charging.

if the meter is fully green and shouts off when unplugged form power, i would disconnect the battery then hook it back up and check the charging again

let me know if you still need to replace the battery and ill find you one and tell you how to replace it.

I can't tell if my magellan maestro 4000 gps is charging.


this could be happening for a few reasons but the most common is that its probably not charging.

before checking anything else, plug your 4000 in to a known good charger, then press and hold the power button for up to ten seconds till it starts.

if that fails, its likely not charging

this is very common problem with this and many model magellans.

My Magellan Maestro 3100 GPS unit won't charge anymore. I've seen 2 possible explanations for this problem. #1: The DC power port is broken #2: The battery won't hold a charge any longer How do I determine...


if it starts, you can verifiy if its charging by going to the system settings then power options. the green indicator should be moving left to right. this indicates its charging.

if you disconnect the battery, your magellan should still work while plugged in if the power port is ok.

this is very common problem with this and many model magellans.

try the car charger.

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

the following magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050 and the 6000 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...
