Hi virgo63

this is a very common problem with your model gps

the following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and 6000t

i fix these and many other magellan gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.

assuming your car charger is working (the little green light is on) and your magellan still wont start up after holding the power button while its plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not below

this is actually a very common problem with these magellan power ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then the factory port.

if your able to replace that power port yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that sells them for help.

due to some dubious "experts" on fixya, im not permitted to help you directly, but please follow the link above to get further help.

let me know if you need more help or info

Battery is fully charged on my 205 and yet it turns itself off

Can it be turn on when the device is attached to the cradle with electric supply?
If so, I think the battey is aged and it cannot be charged to the operating voltage to turn the device on.
A change of battery is required.
I had such a case recently.

Hi my garmin nuvi stopped working completely it dont turn on anymore what should i do pete


Do you know if the unit is fully charged? I would try a hard reset. to do this insert the tip of a paper clip into the "Reset" hole in the GPS case, this will reset the unit to the factory defaults.

My nuvi 660 sound keeps cutting out, when i tap it it comes back for a few seconds seems like a connection is loose

if you mean the screen just goes blank but the gps is not turning off, go to the tools section (little wrench icon) then system then make sure safe mode is off.

if your 660 is powering off totally, make sure it is fully charged by charging it via the usb cable to your computer for a few hours.

I charged my Garmin 305 and the screen read fully charged. I went to turn it on and there is no power. Now I can't even charge or download anything. It is fully dead.

Attach your unit to your computer and go to, download webupdater and then go to my dashboard on garmin and follow the instructions

Wont turn on

Is it fully charged? Plug it into your cigar lighter and charge it up for a couple of hours and then, while the car is running try turning it on.

Tomtom problem

When you turn off the device with power button, you actually set the device in stand by mode, not fully turned off.
This state will drain the battery.

The only way I know to turn device fully off, is to do a reset with paperclip at bottom of device...
