Hi jaykremer



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 start..read 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

Installed a new battery in my magellan maestro 4040. battery has been charging for over 12 hours. only 2 bars like original battery.


with the 4040 plugged in to the charger, wiggle the cord to different positions and see if it loses contact (stops charging)

this model has a very common problem with the power port failing..iif it loses contact by testing it in the manner i suggested, it will require either a new one install or at the very least, resoldered,

let me know what you find and ill help you further.

Will not charge thru the USB or the car charger. Is the battery replaceable?


a magellan 4040 can not charge through the USB port and if it wont charge with a known good car or home charger, then read below.



This is very common problem with this and many model of magellans.

Try the car charger.

Make sure
green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

The following Magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 3000, 3050, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and the 6000 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 can
buy the port or get it repaired, HERE


if the links dont work or If you need further help, just let me know.

Charge Problem


Hello guitarman249,

It sounds like a bad battery. Theoretically, it could be the charger but if the red light on the charger still comes on when the unit is plugged in then the battery is the more likely culprit. The only way to really know for sure is to try charging the unit with a different cable, such as the USB cord used to connect the GPS to a computer. The GPS should charge when connected to USB. If it doesn't, then it's the battery.

Like most GPS receivers, the battery on this one is not replaceable by the user. If you do determine that the battery is causing the problem you will need to contact Magellan tech support to arrange a battery replacement.

Best Regards,
Ken
