The usb port is not taking charge and the battery is dead

if you have a magellan 2000 as listed in the title, the 2000 can not be charged using the USB port, you need to have a car charger or a home charger to charge that unit...only certain magellan can be charged with the usb cable, but the 2000 isnt one of them...

you can read your user manual for the 2000 HERE the link is actually for a crossover, but its the same as a 2000/crossover and the 2500...magellan has removed the 2000 from there web site for some reason, but if you read the manual in that link, all models similar to your use the USB to transfer data to your unit from the PC, the charging port is below the USB port....if you need help finding a charger, just post back and ill find you one...i get all mine off ebay for just a few dollars.

How to use my gps


To use your magellan gps,
  • Mount in-dash models on your dashboard with accessories found on the Magellan website. The company offers motorists kits to get the systems right where you want them for easy driving reference.
  • Use touch-screen controls on the in-dash models. Magellan's Maestro and Roadmate product lines, made for use in vehichle provide convenient touch-screen technology for better safety on the road.
  • Use voice-generating software. The in-dash models also provide guidance by voice instruction. Sit back and let the Magellan device tell you where to go, or reference detailed maps at your fingertips.
  • Use cell-phone type "button" controls on outdoor models like Magellan Triton and eXplorist. Use these keys to get data on speed, distance and location. These devices are also made for the outdoors, durable and ultra-portable.
  • Get the best of both worlds with the Magellan Crossover. This model comes with the features of a car model, but also fits into your pocket for outdoor trekking. Use the Crossover for activities like boating and geocaching, or mount it on your dash and get on the road. Versatile models like the Magellan CrossoverGPS are popular among those who are truly on the go.
Take care and good luck

Display only blinks, how to reset the unit?

hey there michael_wick,

you need to install version 1.68 first before the 2.14 unless you have that installed already.

why cant you update it via the USB cable to your computer...all magellan GPS require at least Windows OS XP service pack 2 to sync with the computer.

if your not seeing the crossover listed in your computer, can you see the usb connection wizard in the lower left of the task bar on your computer.

btw, is this a true crossover, or a 2200T thats been upgrated with the crossover firmware?

I need to upgrade firmware on this unit

there are actually a few different updates for this gps..the link im going to give is for the north american model..if you have one other then the NA model, stop here and ost back to me.

first youll have to determine which update you need by going in the system setting and locate the firmware currently installed..if its lower then 1.68 install the 1.68 first and do not just jump to the 2.14 update as it will throw all kinds of fits and probably make it unusable ...choose the 2.14 update to install if you have the 1.68 version currently installed

updates and manuals the the NA crossover can be found and downloaded HERE

if you have any problem or i have confused you in anyway, please post back before you attempt this update.

you will have to register your crossover before Magellan will allow you to download the update.

follow the installation to the letter as described in the update..i recommend the unit be plugged in to the home charger although magellan says make sure the battery is full.

My Magellan Crossover's batttery was dangerously low - tried to charge it with SwitchPower Supply -didn't work.The screen has a faint glow - can't turn it off or on. Can take the back off and change the...

hi gtrojan even with a deed battery or no battery at all for that matter, your crossover should still start normally while connected to external power.

first try the reset, with the unit on (even if it is dim)use a paper clip and insert it in the little hole on the side. if it starts normally and is still plugged to the charger, go to the main menu/options/power and see if the chaging indicator is moving from side to side. if it is not moving,

The following Magellan 800,860,2000,2200t,2500,(crossover) 3000,3050,3100,3140,4000,4040,4050 and the 6000t are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your Magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port.

you may also have another issue with the screen but you need to find out why its not charging 1st.

you can get it repaired here
or buy the port here

let me know if you need further help!
