Broken RoadMate 700


Here are a few tests you can do. Bear in mind if the unit has not been charged for some time and the internal battery is completely flat, you will need to leave the unit on charge for some time even to get a charge light from the LED. Leave it on charge for at least 2 hours. First, check the LED is lit when the cable is plugged in to the cigarette lighter socket and/or mains charger? If it is not, the fuse in the cigarette lighter adapter may be faulty or the charger may not be working. If the fthe LED is lit, then is power available at the end of the cable that connects to your unit? Use your DC voltmeter to check this. If no power is available here, then your cable/charger is faulty - obtain a new one. If there is power at the connector, then the unit may be faulty.

My Magellan Roadmate doesn't work anymore when I plug it into my cigarette lighter. It says the battery is low and it is shutting down. The unit did not come with a battery charger so I am confused about...


there could be a few reasons why this is happening....

there should be a light on the car charger that comes on when you plug it in, if it isnt on when not plugged in to the gps, but while plugged in to the lighter...either the lighter fuse is blown, or the charger is defective.

if the light is on, on the charger and it still wont stay powered on, it probably has a bad usb port (very common on this model) but it could also mean the charger (if not factory) is not compaible with the unit.

another way you can try and charge it (if you determine the chargers at fault) is to hook it up to your computer via the usb cord that should of been supplied with your unit.

HERE is your manual..it will show you the differant charging options..there is also updates on that page if you need them

let me know if you need more help.

Download the manual from here.

The LED in the upper right corner seems to be a charging indicator, so this means that the power supply via the cigarette lighter seems to be ok.

To switch it on, press and hold the power button for 3 or 10 seconds (depends on the state of the device - whether in sleep mode or off).

Magellan RoadMate won't compute if connected to power


unplug the charger, then turn the 1200 on, once its fully booted, hold the power button for 15 seconds..the screen will go blank after a few seconds, but continue to hold it for 15 seconds.

now, with the charger plugged in and unit off, press and hold the power button for upto 7 seconds or till it starts.

if that fails, let me know and i can tell you something else to do.

look in the tip of the DC charger and see if the fuse has blown. This is usually the case.
Be warned! starting the car with the GPS plugged into DC can blow your SIIRF chip... no more satellites! and an expensive repair. be thankful it was the fuse this time

Magellan roadmate 2000 no power


the following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

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

Magellan Roadmate 700 does not power on


Hello, Rafster! Cigarette lighter plug problems are not uncommon, and - hopefully - this is the source of your problem. Because the green LED on your plug is lit, it would suggest that the FUSE inside is okay. Still, it's worth checking! The plug is easy to open, and the fuse easy to inspect/replace. IF the fuse is okay, the cord itself or the plug end that attaches to your Roadmate could be damaged. In order to determine this, you would have to check for voltage at the output end. But, you'd need a circuit tester and a wee bit of electronics knowledge to test it. If you don't have access to a tester, then the easiest test is to simply purchase a NEW cigarette lighter cord. You can get them at most retail discount stores (BestBuy; Circuit City; WalMart; etc.); RadioShack; or directly from Magellan. They're generally less than $10.00!
