Question about Magellan Maestro 3250 GPS

1 Answer

My GPS won't turn on.

I used it this morning with no problem. I got out of work, attempted to turn it on and nothing was happening. I plugged it in while in my car and hit the reset button, nothing happened. I then plugged it into my computer and nothing is happening.

Please help.
Thanks in advance.

    I got my Magellan in March- worked fine up till now. Now I plug it in to charge & I get nothing. I tried the car charger, charging it on my computer USB port, the home charger... nothing! I've done the "reset" and still nothing. I do typically leave it in my car and one person said something about cold temperatures causing problems?? Anyway, what can I do to fix it now??? HELP!!!!



    Please email any solutions, suggestions to:

    Magellan Mastro is garbage. I want to try replacing the battery. It costs $17. Not sure if the processor is fried.

I had this issue also. When I got it out of the box, it had maybe 30 minutes of playtime without a charge before the battery went low. I used the USB it came with and found plugging it into my laptop AND desktop does absolutely nothing; even though the magellangps.com states the USB can be used as a charger on the PC.

It's been less than 8 hours since I've had it, and I have not gotten a chance to use the car adapter to charge it... I have a DC/AC unit inside my house which I am using to charge the unit and it works fine (incase you dont know what a DC/AC adapter is; its pretty much a lighter adapter that plugs into the wall).

MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT -
With my migraine starter experience with charging and powering on; I have read on 100's of Magellan 3250 reviews that cold tempratures cause these issues.

Other possible causes:
Battery is 100% dead = leave it in your car charging (HIDE UNDER THE SEAT!)

If the USB port plugged in charging in the car; if it is still not working, make sure that the FM part is also plugged in. I found that my GPS does not charge with just the USB end plugged... At least for me, it will only charge with BOTH ports plugged....

I hoped my novel helped... If it didn't; return your Magellan, and buy a GARMIN GPS. I have a Garmin that I bought for my hubby, and 2 years later, has never once experienced any issues.

It won't turn on and even if i plug it into the computer or a ciagrette lighter nothing happens. it was working perfectly fine when i was using it and now i have absolutely nothing. it kept saying low...


Have you tried pressing and holding the power button for about 8 to 10 seconds? It should go on then off. Then wait a few seconds the turn it on normally. This usually resets the unit.
If this does not work try a hard reset.
Press and hold (and continue to hold) the bottom-right corner of the screen while powering the unit on.

Continue to hold the screen until the "Do you want to erase all user data?" prompt appears.

Press "yes" and the unit will reboot. This resets all your location settings and user preferences.

If possible after the hard reset, let the unit sit outdoors in the open for about 30 minutes or so to let the unit re-acquire the satellite data.

Once it gets going update your gps at the Garmin site.

Garmin nivi 200 won,t turn on


well if the plug is not making contact it cant recharge. you need to have it repaired and that may well be costly as it will require a new motherboard. Parts are no longer soldered or repaired The motherboard will be repalaced and the basic board is ^$90 the labour 1.5 hrs o 2 hrs minimum at $95 I am sure you will be able to buy a new model for the same cost

Garmin 305 wont power on, wont charge on cradle


Same thing happened to mine. Put the unit in the cradle (just like you are going to recharge it) and press the reset and mode button at the same time for 3 seconds. This will "wake" the unit up.

Trying to load the home, it says to just plug into the tomtom,


Be sure that you have the Tom Tom turned on. Also, if you have it plugged into a front USB port on your computer, try connecting it to one on the back. I hope this helps.

I had a similar experience. My device would not charge via the usb charger so I connected it to my wall charger and it charged successfully.
