Best bet would be to go to Magellan's web site and order power adapter for it. This page will bring you to accessories and all you have to do is choose family which is Roadmate and model and it will give you all the accessories and i did see they do sell replacement power supply's. Hope this helps.

Hi, yes it's possible you need a soldering iron and 60/40 rosin core solder, remember that soldering iron can make serious burns so be careful, and always work with the device disconnected from any power source.

My magellan charges and operates good in my dodge truck, but does not charge or operate at all when plugged into our hyundai or gms Tahoe. Do you have any suggestions?


Try checking if the charger is still working. There should be a light on it if it's obtaining power from the lighter port. On some vehicles you need to switch on the car to power up the lighter port. If it's broken, buy a new charger.

My magellan will not charge from my car, only from my hose.


replace the cigar lighter. some plugs like my new phone will not plug in the lighter socket. It may have a broken contact inside the lighter. about a $10.00 repair job.

My Magellan Roadmate doesn't work anymore when I plug it into my cigarette lighter. It says the battery is low and it is shutting down. The unit did not come with a battery charger so I am confused about...


there could be a few reasons why this is happening....

there should be a light on the car charger that comes on when you plug it in, if it isnt on when not plugged in to the gps, but while plugged in to the lighter...either the lighter fuse is blown, or the charger is defective.

if the light is on, on the charger and it still wont stay powered on, it probably has a bad usb port (very common on this model) but it could also mean the charger (if not factory) is not compaible with the unit.

another way you can try and charge it (if you determine the chargers at fault) is to hook it up to your computer via the usb cord that should of been supplied with your unit.

HERE is your manual..it will show you the differant charging options..there is also updates on that page if you need them

let me know if you need more help.

Can my Magellan 1420 be left on the car charger all the time without overcharging the battery.


There is nothing in the manual about overcharging, or a warning no to leave the unit plugged in.

Most vehicle lighters do not have power when the car is off.

Some have tow ports, a lighter and a power port.

Check your port, if the lighter does not work when the vehicle is off then you don't have to worry.

You can also contact there support dept at there website.

Magellan RoadMate won't compute if connected to power


unplug the charger, then turn the 1200 on, once its fully booted, hold the power button for 15 seconds..the screen will go blank after a few seconds, but continue to hold it for 15 seconds.

now, with the charger plugged in and unit off, press and hold the power button for upto 7 seconds or till it starts.

if that fails, let me know and i can tell you something else to do.

After recently purchasing my Magellan Roadmate 1400 GPS the cigarette lighter adapter cord no longer charges the unit. I am able to charge it from a regular AC wall socket but it will not start up in my...


look in the tip of the DC charger and see if the fuse has blown. This is usually the case.
Be warned! starting the car with the GPS plugged into DC can blow your SIIRF chip... no more satellites! and an expensive repair. be thankful it was the fuse this time

GPS doesnt turn on with power cord adaptor or 12v lighter socket


if you can verify that the car charger is ok, try plugging it in to your computer using the usb cable. the 1412 should charge with the usb cable. if it still doesnt turn on, try and reset the unit,little pin hole on the side.
