SOURCE: Magellan roadmate 300 wont turn on!

I think the problem is with the internal power jack which tends to break. the part is MG361213 and is available at You have to take the Unit apart and remove the old jack and resolder the new one which is a three pin unit.

Good Luck

I called Magellan and they told me that the previous destinations hold only 20 addresses and the new ones will override the old ones. I have more then 20 previous destinations and it just keeps adding new ones to the list.

Change my magellan roadmate from canada to usa

This model does not have map coverage of Canada. This model was designed for us only in the US. The models in that series with Canada maps were the RoadMate 1212, 1412, and 1430.

Cracked screennot working

That is unfortunate. You will have to replace it. You can probably get a new screen on eBay for a lot less than a new GPS. If you can not replace it yourself, ask around, you may have a friend who likes to replace screens in phones and it is about the same amount of work.

My computer not reading device1430 magellan

assuming your using a windows xp or 2000 os, try another cable if you have one..turn the gps off, plug in the usb cord and restart the gps. if that fails, if the cable is connected to a port on the front of the computer,move the usb cable to a rear port on the computer and try the previous way i just explained.

if those fail, disconnect all usb devises connected to the pc and restart the computer and try again. (always use a rear port on the pc if you can)

MRM 700 won't start; screen flashes white . . . help.

stonelinton, It's not your LCD, otherwise you would have heard the sound of buttons being pushed. If your units first screen is white and there is no logo screen or any legible images, then it's your NAND flash on your main board. The first image produced upon boot is the blue magellan screen. This is produced from the NAND flash and will show it no matter if a hard drive is present or not. After the Magellan screen it pulls images from the hard drive. So, it is the mainboard and the only way to fix it is to send it to Magellan repair and they will have to put in a new mainboard then reprogram your serial number, etc.
