Magellan customer support will tell you that they do not repair cracked TFT screens. They will offer to sell you a Refurbished unit for about $275.00. You can get a Refurb unit on ebay however the warranty on a Refurb is only 90 days so be careful.

Our repair center (jungleghost.com) has contacted China but we cannot procure any screens. Magellan will not sell any to us as they will not sell us motherboards in the case of a defected fluxgate compass.

This is the situation.

    only authorized service center of your device can help you for that.and it would also be costly.because its not available in the local electrical market.the scrap shop which is dealing in this old gps devices can be helpful.but you should get the touchscreen of that same model number.



    pls do rate the solution

    thanks.

Magellan Roadmate 1412 won't track satellites


It might mean that the signal is disrupted. Might be a software glitch. Try going outside, get a clear view of the sky. Then reboot/reset the unit. Hold the switch to the reset position or off position for 10 seconds, it will shut off. then switch it back on. It should reacquire a signal within 2-5 minutes, then it will fix on your position. If that doesn't work, try updating your software. Call Magellan Tech Support for instructions.

Good morning, My friend asked me to look into a problem with her Magellan Roadmate 1400. The screen comes on but the touchscreen no longer works.


If the touchscreen no longer works, she would need a new digitizer on her unit. Call magellan customer service to get an RMA set up to replace the digitizer.

Cracked LCD screen. Can I replace it myself? Where do you get them?


there fairly easy if you have a little patience..the hardest parts is getting the screen ribbon cable back on the board and not breaking or knocking the plastic locking tab off...i buy them off ebay ..search for broken ones not working, particularly one with a software problem, but has a good screen...you can buy them new for about 100.00 but you can buy a new unit off ebay for less then that, so who would buy a screen for a 100.00 when you can just buy a new one for the same price or less.

if you need step by step to replace it, let me know "before" you even remove the screws off the back..you need to remove the back cover the right way so you dont break off your usb/power port.

search ebay for as is, broken, parts or repair...theres a few on there right now pretty cheap

Broken screen Magellan roadmate 1212


Hi.
It is actually much cheaper to buy a new unit than to repair it.
It cost around $150 and above, depends on how crack it is and what model of magellan you're using.

Looking for a replacement touchscreen for Magellan Maestro 4250. Mine cracked. Not the LCD screen mind you. There is a thin layer of glass that can be unclipped from the LCD screen. Any help?


I got the touch screen from ebay, with search key word "4250 digitizer".

the following link is what I see on ebay, it will expire later, search will always work.

Cracked screen on Garmin street pilot 330


Given the cost of buying a new LCD with touchscreen is about $130 USD + shipping. Your best solution is to sell the existing unit and buy a new Nuvi or recondition C330.

Garmin will repair the unit for $150 and provide the lastest update and map.

Magellan maestro 4000, 4040, 4050 vs mio c220,c230,


Don't buy a Magellan. There is little to no support, and their web based support redirects to no where useful for upgrades. I'd sell you my 4040, but can't in good conscience sell it to anyone.
