My Magellan 1200 car GPS says "The USB has been connected to the unit. Please follow instructions for updating maps or software". This happened before and It started to work properly later that day. I don't want to buy any maps.

The USB connection to the GPS serves 2 purposes. It charges the battery and interfaces with the computer to update and or get new maps.
There are separate chargers so you do not have to hook it up to the pc.
There are also car chargers for extended service in the car.
The indication of updating may be needed but you won't know unless you select it.
I updated my Magellan 1412 recently, I downloaded a file, and when I connected the GPS to the pc, I was instructed to run the program I downloaded.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Magellan Maestro GPS #MM3225. Screen display this


The unit is now connected to your computer, and you can actually access its filesystem through windows. It is also charging the battery in the unit. I wouldn't want to mess around with the files, though, unless you know absolutely what you are doing. Plus, it's also a good idea to turn the unit off before removing it from the computer.

Magellan RoadMate won't compute if connected to power


unplug the charger, then turn the 1200 on, once its fully booted, hold the power button for 15 seconds..the screen will go blank after a few seconds, but continue to hold it for 15 seconds.

now, with the charger plugged in and unit off, press and hold the power button for upto 7 seconds or till it starts.

if that fails, let me know and i can tell you something else to do.

I just got a Magellan roadmate 1200 over the weekend from a friend and when I plug it in it loads to a screen that says the usb is connected follow pc instructions


The USB must be for charging the unit and downloading updates when it becomes available. You have to unplug the USB and use the battery power to put in addresses .My 1200 does the same.

Maestro 3250 Charging


I accidentally ran into this problem today when I inadvertantly plugged the wrong charger into the unit. I'm guessing that the device isn't getting the precise current it's expecting and thus thinks it's plugged into a computer. I'd suggest getting hold of a different charger and see if the problem goes away.
