I can think of two reasons for the failure

  • If you're unlucky, the low temperature might have killed the battery. As far as I know, the type of battery used in Magellan devices is Lithium-Polymer. They contain a gel electrolyte. LiPo batteries are sensitive to low temperatures, cooling them below 0°C/32°F may render them dead. Replacement batteries are available, e.g. from HERE. The web site also offers a video on how to do the repair.
  • When you brought in the device from the cool place, water may have condensed inside.
I'd recommend to store the device in a warm (not hot, the batteries also don't like temperatures above 60°C/140°F) and dry place for a one or two days and see if the problem goes away. If no, you can still go for a replacement battery.

Good morning, My friend asked me to look into a problem with her Magellan Roadmate 1400. The screen comes on but the touchscreen no longer works.


If the touchscreen no longer works, she would need a new digitizer on her unit. Call magellan customer service to get an RMA set up to replace the digitizer.

I was in the process of updating my Magellan 1400 GPS when I got an error "cant read source file" and now the GPS unit won't boot up.


Hello there again
Step 1: On the RoadMate, press ++--+-
this will bring up the "hidden menu". From there, you can access the shell, perform a hard reset, and additional tasks on some units.
There - now you know how to access the "hidden menu" on a Magellan RoadMate. Use it at your own peril. Cheers!

My magellan roadmate 1200 will not turn on


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

if you tried charging it with both house charger and car charger and tried to start it like i explain and it still will not start, its most likely a bad power port which is very common with this model and many other magellan models.

look in the tip of the DC charger and see if the fuse has blown. This is usually the case.
