Question about Magellan RoadMate 2200T GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Dead Magellan We tried that! Thanks! Ours must be the percent of those that don't get better when you do that! We're now evaluating other GPS units. We only had it since Christmas 2007, and of course, it was broken AFTER the one-year warranty!!!!!

Hi syoder

this is a very common problem with your model gps

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

My gps doesnt work without the charger???!!!!


If its not charging the battery with the 12 volt cigarette cord, the meter will say full even though the battery is dead. This is a common problem with GPS Units with the USB as a charging port. If the GPS Unit is still under warranty, i would send it back to magellan or whereever you bought it, the sooner the better. I believe that you GPS is defective or in need of repair. Hope this helps.

I have a magellan 4370. I plugged it in to charge but as soon as I unplug it it shuts off. When plugged into the wall, it shows that the battery is charging but the battery doesn't take the charge. ...


I have several gps, and have worked on them as well. I also currently have a megellan , I have found out over the years that the batteries they use in 99 percent of the gps are ****. Even with my extensive background in electronics, I have replaced interior battery with top of the line one, At first it last for a couple hours, then one hour and eventually about 15 minutes . My total professional advice, consider your self lucky, you have one of the best gps brands out there, draw back, battery is poor. Just enjoy it in your car, plugged in your cig lighter. It's funny how these low budget throw away tom-tom,s have better battery, but gps is junk. So at least you have a superior gps. Please rate this post, if I have helped you, keep me updated on any other questions. Thanks mike

How can I switch from U.S. to Canada on my Magellan 300 GPS?


You must have the maps for Canada. Many units come with these maps, but some don't. Try entering a Canadian address to see if it comes up with it. If you don't have the maps on disk, or something else happens, call Magellan at 800 707 9971 .

Magellan 2000 doesn't power up


try replacing the battery. ususally if the battery is dead it will freeze or not turn on. if this doesn't work magellan will replace it with a new one at a very reasonable price. I just replaced a magellan 800 with a magellan 3210 for $132.00. your may get a better deal. call magellan
if you have an a/c 110 volt to 5 volt converter for the magellan, try charging it in the house with that one rather than the car charger.
