Hi allen,

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

SOURCE: Magellan Roadmate 360 reset

I called Magellan and they told me that the previous destinations hold only 20 addresses and the new ones will override the old ones. I have more then 20 previous destinations and it just keeps adding new ones to the list.

Have you tried updating the software on your device.
Go to Magellan.com and download the Magellan Content Manger:
http://www.magellangps.com/products/map.asp?tab=0&PRODID=2216
Once you've installed Content Manger onto your PC, connect your device to your PC using the USB cord. The Content Manager will allow you to update your 1340 with the latest software and updates which 'should' fix the problem that you're having with your unit.

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 1440 fatal error


Same has happened to my gps unit too. The best bet thing is to contact Magellan and they will advise you to send the unit in for replacement with a refurbished one. or get a new one. I am still waiting for mine and as of date, nothing yet. How is it that their updates caused the fatal error? Anyone??

Magellan roadmate 1440 froze in the first window , with the little clock at the bottom


Most of these devices have a reset button on the unit base. It looks no bigger than a pin head and is usually recessed.

Turn on and take a straightened paper clip or cocktail stick, press into and keep pressed the reset button for a slow count to 15. Release and then let the unit go through its reset procedure before pressing anything else.

I have a magellan 1440 and there is no reset button on the right side as stated. the screen that im stuck on is the magellan and little clock on screen. how do i fix it?


I don''t know if they changed the 1440 or not but the reset on mine is integral with the power switch.
Push it to the left to turn it on, or push it to the right to reset it. This is from the off position of course.

switch says:

ON OFF RESET

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 was updating my Magellan RoadMate 1470 and the screen froze up. There is no reset button like the support page says. What do I do?


Here is how to reset your 1340, 1440, or 1470:

Go to the system menu:

On the menu bar ( the top bar where it says Sytem Settings) Tap left corner twice, right corner twice, left corner once, right corner once. It will bring up a hidden menu. The first thing on the hidden menu is reset for first use. Press that and you have done the equivalent of a hard reset.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA
