The folowing 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 2000 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 2000 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

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.

My magellan maestro shuts off after 10 seconds even if it's plugged in the cigarette lighter charger.


I had similar problem. While it was still on I pressed the recessed "reset" button and it magically fixed the problem. It retained all my prior settings and locations. Note: must press reset before unit powers off.

I have a legacy item (Roadmate 800). The battery was dead so I ordered a new one. The new battery powers on the unit but when I plug in ac charger I don't get a solid orange light, but a flashing green...


This is very common problem with this and many model of magellans.

Try the car charger.

Make sure
green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

The following Magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 3000, 3050, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and the 6000 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your Magellan
gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...

You can
buy the port or get it repaired, HERE


if the links dont work or If you need further help, just let me know.

Looking for the cigarette lighter fuse


Check all fused related to audio, dome light or instrument cluster. Try plugging a cellphone charger into the socket for cig lighter, if this works then you need a new cig lighter.

The cig lighter is probably part of the circuit tied to radio instrument cluster or dome lights, if any of those are out too, then it is likely a bad fuse or bad ground. Look for corresponding fuse and kill 2 birds with one stone hopefully by replacing the faulty fuse.

If you locate and replace a faulty fuse and the problem persists, you may have a bad ground. This is a bit more involved. I would guess by your question that you will need to have someone service it for you.

The fuse should be beside the accellerator pedal behind a black cover. Should be a yellow 20amp in the middle row, at the end, closest to the front of the car.
