The following 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 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 magellan 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 Maestro 31100 won't power on


You could have a defective power connection in your Magellan Maestro 3100 which will not allow you to charge the internal battery or power on your unit.
You may try to contact Magellangps.com or Autonav2000.com to see if they can provide you with repair service.
Might be cheaper to purhcase another Magellan Maestro than spend the money on repairs.
Good Luck

The stinger from my car charger has broken off


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

disregard the test for charging if you know your power port is broken and go to the bottom for further help

try the car charger2_bing.gif.

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, 4000, 4040, 4050 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 get help to repair it here
or buy the power port here

if you need further help, just let me know.

My Magellan Maestro 3100 GPS unit won't charge anymore. I've seen 2 possible explanations for this problem. #1: The DC power port is broken #2: The battery won't hold a charge any longer How do I determine...


if it starts, you can verifiy if its charging by going to the system settings then power options. the green indicator should be moving left to right. this indicates its charging.

if you disconnect the battery, your magellan should still work while plugged in if the power port is ok.
