Question about Magellan GPS 310 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Magellan Roadmate 300

My gps will not power up. The Magellan co. will not receive it for repair - they say it is not repairable. I need a repair statment and cost to repair for an extended warranty claim. Any suggestions?

    The Magellan co. did email me that the unit is not repairable, but the warranty co. will not accept that. I did find a co. that will give me a repair estimate on the unit - Audio & Video Service Stop.

Write a letter or e mail to Magellan requesting unit to be repaired, when the respond to you in writing that unit is not repairable, you have written proof that the unit is not repairable. That should supercede any requirement for an estimate on an extended warranty. When a unit is proven unrepairable, extended warranties have to offer a suitable replacement model in lieu of a repair. Don't take no for an answer. Most extended warranty companies save a lot of momey by making it hard to cash in on claims. If you're persistent it should pay off. It may also help enlist the help of the top manager at store that sold you the unit and the warranty.

You will either need to replace the GPS or send it in for repair. The cost to repair is in most cases prohibitive.

This Magellan does not list a model #. It was received as a gift 2 years ago. The printed circut board is broken where the poer cords connects to the unit. Is it worth repair and how much would it...


you need to figure out the model number...if its one like the one pictured in your question, then yes it can be repaired if the circut board itself isnt damaged...the ports are available on ebay for about twelve dollars.

the following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

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

Broken screen Magellan roadmate 1212


Hi.
It is actually much cheaper to buy a new unit than to repair it.
It cost around $150 and above, depends on how crack it is and what model of magellan you're using.
