I own a Magellan myself and I have found this same situation. I had let the fuse come loose in the unit.
Try this -
Try something else in the lighter.
2- if the lighter is good - try this
3- the Magellan uses a mini USB plug - - using a mini USB plug - plug the unit into your pc and run the software that came with the unit. Try using a wall plug to charge the battery. If your unit is only used 5 times you may be able to return it. I had this same problem and used a MINI- USB cell phone plug for the WALL unit - 110 electrical and it worked to charge my unit. So best of luck. The problem seems to just be a dead battery that requires an overnight charge from the wall plug for it or a cell phone charger substitute

Interior light not turning on. Temperature not showing up either. Brand new out of the box. Plugged in and it lit up, then turned off. Now won't turn on (light won't turn on) Unit turns on and


Sounds like a poor connection in the control or a faulty control module, I would return it as faulty for a new one. They seal those units up pretty good so we can't fiddle with them. Everyone gets a lemon sometimes.

It won't turn on and even if i plug it into the computer or a ciagrette lighter nothing happens. it was working perfectly fine when i was using it and now i have absolutely nothing. it kept saying low...


Have you tried pressing and holding the power button for about 8 to 10 seconds? It should go on then off. Then wait a few seconds the turn it on normally. This usually resets the unit.
If this does not work try a hard reset.
Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.

Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears.

Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite data.

Once it gets going update your gps at the Garmin site.

Brand new Magellan Maestro 4000 does not turn on or indicate powe


I had the same problem and I solved it by cutting a few strands of speaker wire and twisting them together and inserting them into the center of the generic car gharger end which plugs into the Maestro 4000, It seems that the 4000 has a very small center conducter on the GPS itself and by adding a few strands of speaker wire about 1/2" long into the plug before pluging it into the 4000 it allows it to makes contact with the small power inlet conductor which is smaller than most generic cigarette lighter 5vdc power cords. I did this to mine and it powered up right away. The other solution is to buy the actual car power cord from Magellan which has the proper size connecton and makes proper connection all the time.

Auto shut down screen does appear when ignition is turned off


This is telling me that your cigarette lighter socket has +12VDC applied to it all the time EVEN when the ignition is turned OFF. This is not the fault of your Nuvi. On some cars, like Hondas, the cigarette lighter socket powers off when your ignition is turned off.

If you want it to turn off with the ignition, then you will have to power it from a +12VDC source that is controlled by the ignition.
