This could be a cracked power jack on the unit. They get slightly stressed over time, and the traces to them can get cracked. When this happens, you have to take the unit apart and resolder the legs. Sometimes the jack has to be replaced since it's plastic case can crack and cease to let the legs make contact, and you have to replace the jack.
That's the most common problem. Of course, there's a chance it could be other things, and in that case, the unit will have to systematically troubleshot, which is usually not cost effective.
Here's a blog about the same problem, and they come up with the same conclusion. If the reset doesn't work after holding it for 10 seconds, the unit will have to be serviced. Get an estimate on repair first.
Here's the blog, which contains a link to Magellan support:

Good luck, and hope this helps.

Gps 1412 will not charge


Have you check the voltage output on your power/charger cord? It's easy to test if you know how to use a multi-tester or take it to a small electronics shop like a Radio Shack.

If there is no voltage output from the charger, then simply replace the cord. I have found that those charging cords can break real easily but it's hard to physically see any damage.

Otherwise, if you've already tried a new charger, you may need to send your GPS in for service.

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.

FTAT files deleted and can't boot up.


Here's the files from my RM 1412, I just copied the folders and RAR'd them up.

Hope this works. I'd put these files in and reset your RM 1412 with the "Reset" button on the right.

Good luck!

My Magellan Roadmate 1412 does not seem to charge. I cannot use the device unless it is plugged into a wall outlet or car charger. Does this model not have a battery? Please help. Thanks!


does it appear to be charging when its plugged in....go to the system folder then the power option..the power bar should be moving left to right...if its all green and its not scrolling left to rigth , its receiving power but not charging. possibly because the charge port is damaged or the battery is either shot or disconnected.

GPS doesnt turn on with power cord adaptor or 12v lighter socket


if you can verify that the car charger is ok, try plugging it in to your computer using the usb cable. the 1412 should charge with the usb cable. if it still doesnt turn on, try and reset the unit,little pin hole on the side.

Garmin 1412, wont run on battery power, DC only. Need info on maybe a full reset whether to return as defective


I found there are select 120v AC adapters that will work on Magellan GPS. When a working 120v or 12v adapter to mini USB adapter is plugged into the unit, the battery bars will be 'scrolling' and therefore charging.

When your adapter, or even USB cable from your computer, is plugged into the GPS unit, and the battery goes to FULL, it is NOT CHARGING. The battery bars must be SCROLLING for the unit to charge. In this case, get a different adapter until it works.
