My magellan Roadmate 5220-LM powers on but will not go past the first screen. I have tried to use the reset button but it still will not work


Hello Liz, You may have two problems. If your unit is several years old, the battery may need to be replaced. First charge the battery overnight. To get the screen unfrozen , you need to remove the screws on the back, open the case, and unplug the white battery connection . Reconnect the battery connection after a few seconds. If this works, it is usually a temporary fix . Either your battery does not hold a charge or your charger connection is poor at best and can not deliver a full charge to the battery. It could be both.

Problem charging MAGELLAN GPS.


I found there are select 120v AC adapters that will work on Magellan GPS. When a working 120v or 12v adapter to mini USB adapter is plugged into the unit, the battery bars will be 'scrolling' and therefore charging.

When your adapter, or even USB cable from your computer, is plugged into the GPS unit, and the battery goes to FULL, it is NOT CHARGING. The battery bars must be SCROLLING for the unit to charge. In this case, get a different adapter until it works.

This was tested on a Magellan 1412, and may apply to other Magellan GPS.

Free map update fpr magellan roadmate 2000


There is no longer any map updates or accessories available for the Roadmate 2000.
Magellan has obsoleted this unit and no longer has support for it or any accessories.
I talked to them online as well as on the phone.
So basically when you get the message on your Magellan Roadmate 2000 that you maps are out of date and your unit no longer functions correctly because of this, there is no fix and the unit is now a useless paper weight.
And there are no sites online that has any software to upgrade maps for this unit.
So keep your plugs because they work on other units, but take a baseball bat and hit a home run with your roadmate 2000.
Thats all its worth now.

Magellan Roadmate 2000.. No GPS signals


make sure the battery is charged up good, then take it outside and turn it on and leave it in clear view of the open sky for up to 30 minutes to acquire the satellites especially if its been reset.

if that fails, reset the unit...turn it on, then locate the reset button on the left side bottom of the gps and use a paper clip to depress the reset switch...it should restart on its own..take it back outside and let it in clear view of the open sky for up to 30 minutes.

if that fails..go HERE and get the update and follow the instructions..you will have to sign on to the Magellan site before you can download anything.

if you need more help, just post back

It is shutting down while we are using it. it is plugged into the lighter outlet and has power, does not show a low battery


try a hard reset first using a paper clip, innsert it in the little pin hole on the side to reset the unit. if that fails, get the 3.12 update off the magellan site..you must register the unit with magellan before you can download the update.

My Magellan Roadmate 1412 does not seem to charge. I cannot use the device unless it is plugged into a wall outlet or car charger. Does this model not have a battery? Please help. Thanks!


does it appear to be charging when its plugged in....go to the system folder then the power option..the power bar should be moving left to right...if its all green and its not scrolling left to rigth , its receiving power but not charging. possibly because the charge port is damaged or the battery is either shot or disconnected.

My Magellan Roadmate won't turn on


THere is nothing wrong with it. On the left side of the unit pull up the rubber cover. You will see a very small switch and a button above it or below it.
With a a pen slid the switch, and push the re set button. Then slid the switch back. and turn on the unit the way you normally do. If it doesn't light up
either you did it wrong, the unit is discharged, or there is something wrong with it. If nothing works call Magellan and if it is still under service, they will help you. Good luck to you.
