Hi onestrategy,

These are tips I have used and given others about this series Magellan units. Make sure you have external power hooked up for best results.

Magellan RoadMate models 1340, 1440, and 1470 are normally reset as follows:
The reset button is located on the right side of the unit. Press a blunt object like a long-shaft ballpoint pen or a cut off toothpick
into the small hole and hold for approximately 15 seconds. The unit should do a fresh reboot. Sometimes these GPS units can be reset by holding the Power button down for 10-15 seconds to completely shut the unit down. Then, do the same procedure for 10-15 seconds again, to power it back on.

Also, here's another procedure you really only try as a last resort, if the unit is on, but acting up with various menus and functions. Use this very carefully...

While on the main Menu Bar at "System Settings", tap the left corner twice, right corner twice, left corner once, and finally, right corner once. You will see a 'Hidden' menu with a "Reset for first use". Press that option and the unit will perform a hard reset. Hopefully, you can continue all you setups from this point.

Also you can download a complete manual from this link:
http://www.magellangps.com/assets/manuals/Magellan_RoadMate_1440_EN.pdf

The manual won't tell you all these little tricks, so it might be a good idea to make a hard copy of these notes (in case you ever need them again...lol). I hope this helps. Please let me know how it turns out, and contact me if you need further help.

Regards, Bill

    Thank you Bill Bennett!! You are a lifesaver. I do not have a reset button on my unit, but I tried the System page and clicked twice on left, twice on right, once on left, and once on right and it brought me to a secret menu page. I reset it to first use and it rebooted. It no longer turns off for no reason! Thank you so much~

Hello, I updated my Magellan Roadmate 1440 from the Magellan website. Now, when I try to put in a destination, the screen says "route error, your destination may be in a restricted area or unreachable...


I contacted Magellan about this issue for my Roadmate 5045. They told me to reset the unit by sliding the power bar to to the off position for 10 seconds, and then let it sit off for a minute or so. When it powered up, the issue seemed to be resolved. But it comes back. Successive efforts using this method have about a 80% success rate.

I have the Magellan 1440, all I get is where it


  1. Get a clear view of the sky and then turn off the unit and then power on again.
  2. Once the unit is on and you see the street display tap on the signal icon on the screen.
  3. You will see a half globe with horizontal signal color orange and wait for at least 5 full green signal and then close that page.
  4. Once your in the sreet display you will see tsignal strength on the screen.
