Question about Magellan Crossover GPS

1 Answer

Magellan crossover Unit is less than a year old, and it won't turn on at all. It was working just fine last week, although it did have an episode out in the country where it tried to reroute every 15 seconds or so for at least 15 minutes, while the car was moving. Anyway, neither the car charger for several hours nor the AC indoor charger overnight have had any effect.

    same problem- won't turn on

    I bought my crossover brand new in the box from a guy at a flee market type place. It was un opened I used it for a few weeks and now it will not turn on at all. Indoor charger wont have any effect nor the car charger. This sucks because I doubt I am covered by any type of warrenty since I did not get it from a dealer. I tried to reset it also.

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.

Unit will not turn on

Check for voltage at the end that plugs into the cradle. If no voltage there, check glass fuse inside end that plugs into car plug. If there is voltage at the cradle end and it still doesn't turn on then it's the cradle. The cradle fails over a short time inside the cradle plug. You can hard solder the cable end to the cradle circuit board, which is a delicate procedure which I have perfected but I am an electronics person. If you want to buy a new cradle it will fix your problem for turning on the gps but I recomend a cable tie on the cradle cable end to stop the strain on the connector so the new cradle connector will last a long time.

Magellan repairs

I don't know what wire you are referring to, however, I just fixed one last week that was 1 year old, not taking a charge (not even to get the screen up at all). Went to batteries plus, ordered a battery for it (there are 4 screws in the back and then some plastic catches that are released with a thin screwdriver--I started on the top). The battery was $25 but the unit is no longer under warrenty and it cost $50 through Radio Shack for them to send it in to the company. Worked perfectly with new battery.

Magellan roadmate 300 wont stay on

It is the cigarette adapter, mine was doing the same thing until I bought a new adapter. When the old adapter plug to the GPS unit moved at all it would lose power.
