Real easy to use
1- Read the manual
2 Turn it on and let it setup, once its ready to use
3- Hit menu then destination
4- put in destination and tell it to route
5- follow the gps unit, using some common sense, since it can and might tell you to do things that there is no road for or you might not be able to go that way.
6- Read the manual again this will show you some of the other features you may not be using.
7- If there is no manual check the cd that came with the unit since it will be on there and if by some strange chance it's not you can usually get the manual online at the manufactures website.

My gps 1470 won t come on. I pluged it to my computer w/usb and turn it on and nothing. I plug it in to my car and it would not turn on or recharge.


Sounds like a problem with your battery. My 1700 will not start up when I connect it, if I have let my battery completely discharge. I have to leave it on charge for half an hour before it will restart. I also have had to reset it on occasion. I suggest you leave it on charge with a charger that connects to your house (120volt to 5volt adapter). If you have one for your cell phone or any other device that uses the mini USB connection, this will work on your gps.

Cracked LCD screen. Can I replace it myself? Where do you get them?


there fairly easy if you have a little patience..the hardest parts is getting the screen ribbon cable back on the board and not breaking or knocking the plastic locking tab off...i buy them off ebay ..search for broken ones not working, particularly one with a software problem, but has a good screen...you can buy them new for about 100.00 but you can buy a new unit off ebay for less then that, so who would buy a screen for a 100.00 when you can just buy a new one for the same price or less.

if you need step by step to replace it, let me know "before" you even remove the screws off the back..you need to remove the back cover the right way so you dont break off your usb/power port.

search ebay for as is, broken, parts or repair...theres a few on there right now pretty cheap

My magellan 1470 has been used only 4r5 times an now every time i try to use it to put n a address it says it needs to restart to increase performance never gos to the address


I had a similar problem with the address book not working on a refurbished 1470 that Magellan sent me. I reinstalled the latest update and it fixed the problem. It doesn't take long to do and is worth a try. Make sure you read and follow all the instructions.

Tried to update the firmware on the Magellan 1470


Just got off the phone with Magellan East (my guess is India as I had a hard time understanding them and said "What?" 20 or 30 times) to which they said that there is no way to reboot these systems. I updated to 2.20 and it froze my GPS. I have to send my unit back to them and they are sending me a refurbished one free. I am outside the warranty period according to them but have AAA, which gave me an extra year on warranty, so they are honoring it. Give them a call at 8007079971 to get this fixed.

I was updating my Magellan RoadMate 1470 and the screen froze up. There is no reset button like the support page says. What do I do?


Here is how to reset your 1340, 1440, or 1470:

Go to the system menu:

On the menu bar ( the top bar where it says Sytem Settings) Tap left corner twice, right corner twice, left corner once, right corner once. It will bring up a hidden menu. The first thing on the hidden menu is reset for first use. Press that and you have done the equivalent of a hard reset.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA
