Have you gone through the "Initialize" process again? If the memory has been cleared you will need to re-initialize. Refer to page 4 of your manual. Power On > Select Language > "ENTER" > INITIALIZE screen > "ENTER" > Select Region > "ENTER" > Select Area > "ENTER" > Enter Elevation > "ENTER" (if you don't know elevation, press enter) > Enter Time > "ENTER" > Enter Date > "ENTER"

SOURCE: Magellan Roadmate 1212 won't stay on when unplugged

Man, I DO commiserate with you on that one, but did you specify to them that the battery should be checked?
as that is probably your problem, now that I know the unit has been checked and the worst possible outcome
from your buying an extra battery is that you will HAVE AN EXTRA BATTERY for those times when you need
total portability.

So, make sure you try a brand new battery and if that solves your problem, then buy several.

SOURCE: Magellan Maestro 4250 freezing up

I just purchased a referb from TigerDirect and the only issue I discovered was a lockup when the unit goes to sleep. Try holding down the power button for 15 seconds then release it to cycle the unit. Then hold the power button down again for 5 second to start it back up. I had to do this for my bluetooth to work and not freeze up. Now I just turn it on and off manually and avoid having it go to sleep. I also downloaded the firmware update to 4.86, you can download it from Magellan's website. My unit works great so if that doesn't work contact Magellan and I'm sure they will have a solution.

Magellan Roadmate 2000.. No GPS signals


make sure the battery is charged up good, then take it outside and turn it on and leave it in clear view of the open sky for up to 30 minutes to acquire the satellites especially if its been reset.

if that fails, reset the unit...turn it on, then locate the reset button on the left side bottom of the gps and use a paper clip to depress the reset switch...it should restart on its own..take it back outside and let it in clear view of the open sky for up to 30 minutes.

if that fails..go HERE and get the update and follow the instructions..you will have to sign on to the Magellan site before you can download anything.

if you need more help, just post back

Self tests show ok, reset ok, satellite just says searching


make sure the battery is charged up good, then take it outside and turn it on and leave it in clear view of the open sky for up to 30 minutes to acquire the satellites especially if its been reset.

if that fails, reset the unit...turn it on, then slide the reset switch on the top of your 800 to the opposite position and once it turns off, slide the reset back to the normal position and turn it on again and take it back outside and let it in clear view of the open sky for up to 30 minutes.

if that fails..go HERE and get the update for which ever 800 model you have...you will have to sign on to the Magellan site before you can download anything.

if you need more help, just post back

Just opened up a new magellan roadmate 1412 and can't get a satelite signal.


satellite acquisition takes several minutes with good line of sight to the sky, assuming the unit dose see at least 1 satellite in the sky this would mean theirs issues with the internal antenna or the receiver is malfunctioning, when you said opened up the new unit i assume you disconnected the small connectors, maybe one is not fully conencted or the wire became disconnected during reasembly. theirs alsoa chance the unit has to be reset.

Magellan wont get signal?


charge the battery fully, then set it outside in clear view of the open sky. it may take as much as 30 minutes to acquire the sats if that fails, try and leave it out longer...does it appear to try and link to ANY sats. on the map screen in the top righ t corner is a icon with bars in it, tap that and you should see it trying to acquire sats. if not, you might have other problems

My eMap (version 2.75) stays for hours in 'searching the sky'


My eMap was doing the same thing. Try putting in fresh batteries and make sure you are in a good reception area. While turning the eMap on, hold the on button and the ESC button at the same time until the system is on. It will ask if you want to reset. I opted for yes. My eMap started working again!

The unit is a Magellan Nav 5000. We understand they are no longer being serviced and we are not looking for repair work rather hopefully some simple explanation to our problem. We are currently in Adak...
