SOURCE: My Magellan maestro 3225 wont charge or start up

Same here - the problem, at least with mine, is that the power pin on the unit has become loose and not making contact with the machine - thus will not charge most likely from pluging and unplugging it in multiple times and breaking the connection inside the unit - FWIW, this GPS a real piece of **** and I have already replaced it with a Garmin- I'm trying to figure out how to take it apart to see if I can solder the power pin back in place but it is not as easy as removing the 4 back screws...

SOURCE: magellan maesto car charger causes usb screen

Two exact solutions to this problem. I'm a electrical engineer and have figured Magellan GPS chargers out(sneaky you know what's..)
OK.
1) Mini USB ports wear out. They do have spring loaded gold connections, but over time, dirt gets in there and causes a loss of connectivity, so take care of them and try and clean them if they need it.
2.) Magellan GPS auto chargers are not standard chargers. They use what's called a USB 2.0 Mini-B "TYPE-A" plug. The "type-A" is important. There are 5 little pins inside that mini connector. 1:Power, 2:Data -, 3:Data +, 4:Ground, and 5:Ground. That #4 ground is important(that's what makes their charge cable unique). A regular Mini-B USB cable (like the one you connect to your computer) does not have pin-4 (ground) connected. It's left floating in plastic. So you can spend your hard earned money (like I did) and buy a bunch of USB cables trying to find one to work, but it has to be USB 2.0 mini-B TYPE-A..don't forget. Also, the Magellan charger pushes 5.2 V at a short circuit current of 1.9 Amps. That's a lot of power. Standard chargers push about 500mA to 900mA of current. The higher the current, the faster the charge. But the main trick that Magellan uses is the damn TYPE-A cables. If you don't use type A. You'll get that message "you have connected to a USB..yada..yada...yada.." , bunch of milkylickers over there at Magellan.

Hi accidentaly remove application folder on Magellan maestro 3225 GPs now its can not hookup with my computer I save my GPS all file in my computer how how I reinstall application on GPS


If it won't connect then about all you can try is a hard reset. That will force it to reload all of the applications and reset it back to factory default condition. You would loose any waypoints and routes etc that you haven't saved but it should work just fine after that.

Magellan Maestro 3225 signal is no longer working. No satellite for navigation.


Look in the back. There is a small rubber cap on top of the external antenna hookup. Remove the rubber cap with a pin and hookup a long wire on the middle. That should amplify the signal.

I HAVE A MAGELLAN 3225 GPS AND IT WILL NOT START UP ANY MORE. WHAT SHOULD I DO? IS THERE A WAY I CAN HAVE IT SERVICED AND WHERE AND HOW?


Does the battery hold a charge? Try pressing the RESET button. The Magellan site though very slow may be able to help or make recommendations...Now a days it may be cheaper to buy a new one than fix the old one
