Question about Magellan Meridian Gold GPS Receiver

Open Question

My Magellan Meridian Gold hand-held GPS I stored my GPS for about 1 year or so with the batteries out. Last week I reinstalled fresh batteries and it took 3 days before it would power up, then only stayed on for 5-10 minutes before it shut itself off. I can only get it to start sporadically and then it only stays on for 5-10 minutes before shutting down again. Can you help me figure out what the problem is? Thank you Al

power up: simultaneously hold down "goto" & "ESC" then press "PWR"

My Magellan Meridian Gold GPS works with a car cradle but does not power up with its own battery power. How can I fix my receiver to work with its batteries?


You may find the problem is with the connections from the battery to the circuit board.
Take the back off and check the battery connectors where they contact the board. They may need cleaning or re aligning

You might try leaving the batteries out of the GPS for a few days and then put them back in and set back up GPS. I know Garmin has a download for the loss of satellites on some of their GPS's but not sure if Magellan does or not. I have set up several of the Meridian Golds and have never had any issues with them.

Meridian gold problems


netopir, I assume you have tried replacing batteries at least a couple times?
I wonder if tedford has corrosion inside his unit. The Gold has a rubber gasket and is a bit water resistant, but high humidity and salt water exposure would take a toll on the electronics inside.

I unscrewed the 6 screws holding the back to the Meridian Gold unit and looked at the contacts. I noticed that one of the curved prongs that makes contact from the battery to the unit was bent low so I knew it was not making contact and preventing the unit from working. So I very gently took the small screwdriver and pulled it out a bit so that contact was the same height as the other. Screwed the back back on, reinstalled the batteries, presto - works like a charm now. Anyone can do it.

Now I need someone to tell me what alternative GPS map packages giv e the most bang for the buck as my Map Send CDs were accidently thrown out by a well meaning person cleaning up my desk....
