I'm also having the same problem with the same model. But there is no reset button with this model. Even the manual says nothing about a reset button. Help!!!

There is a reset on your unit located on the side, below the SD card slot. A straighted paper clip should do nicely for this procedure.

How do you reset a magellan roadmate 1220?


As a general rule, for Magellan RoadMate models the RESET BUTTON is on the right side inside a small hole; the use of a pointed object (tip of a pencil, a ball-pen, etc.) is required to apply pressure on this button in order to perform the RESETTING PROCEDURE.
You may also can try to hold down the POWER BUTTON for 10 seconds to power off the device; then repeat the same procedure (holding down the POWER BUTTON) for other 10 seconds to power on Magellan RoadMate.

My magellan triton 500 will not fully turn on. It statrts to load the bat goes all the way and then freezes. I can not turn it off either.


You need to reset the magellan triton 500, then it will fully come on and stay on. To reset this type of magellan. What you have to do is to take out the battery and reinstall it back in. That should do the job for you, and if that does not solve the problem, then you have to back up the maps on a computer then format the triton then restore the software and maps back on it. Now am assuring you that will do the job.
Hope this information helped you.

When I turn on my magellan maestro 3200 it just says Magellan and stays on that screen . What is the problem ? I just bought the unit from ebay and this is the firt time I'be tried to use it . I read the...


whether its new or used, this can happen for a few different reasons. sometimes they just freeze up there and then they freeze up when someone has tried to update it and the updated failed before it was finished installing it.

hopefully all it will need is a reset...looking at your 3200, look on the left side of the gps and you will see a hole that you can insert something like a paper clip in..turn on your 3200 and insert a paperclip in the hole and gentle depress the reset until the unit restarts...

if it still will not go past that screen, just let me know and i can tell you if you can and how you can, reinstall the update and or tell you how to get magellan to repair it for you for free.

the reset normally works 98% providing the files are not corrupt

Screen freezes


I did use the Premium live chat with you. I went through all the steps again that I already did on my own - i.e. resetting the pin hole with power on and power off...touching the screen in the corner when it was powering on....nothing changed.

I called Magellan. My warranty is still in effect and the Magellan rep gave me a repair number and address to send the unit. I will have it back and working in 7 to 10 days at no cost to me.

I wish it had been a really quick fix, I use my GPS in my business. I'm thankful for the warranty. I wish I knew why it did this so I can avoid any possible repeat of the malfunction.
