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.

Can my Magellan 1420 be left on the car charger all the time without overcharging the battery.


There is nothing in the manual about overcharging, or a warning no to leave the unit plugged in.

Most vehicle lighters do not have power when the car is off.

Some have tow ports, a lighter and a power port.

Check your port, if the lighter does not work when the vehicle is off then you don't have to worry.

You can also contact there support dept at there website.

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.

I was in the process of updating my Magellan 1400 GPS when I got an error "cant read source file" and now the GPS unit won't boot up.


Hello there again
Step 1: On the RoadMate, press ++--+-
this will bring up the "hidden menu". From there, you can access the shell, perform a hard reset, and additional tasks on some units.
There - now you know how to access the "hidden menu" on a Magellan RoadMate. Use it at your own peril. Cheers!

After recently purchasing my Magellan Roadmate 1400 GPS the cigarette lighter adapter cord no longer charges the unit. I am able to charge it from a regular AC wall socket but it will not start up in my...


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 1400 gps does not turn on when connected to car charger. Tried several times but in vain? can you let me know how to fix it?


well it may not be able to be solved without expense.
Do you have an AC charger? if so try to turn iot on when its been connected to the charger for about 10 mins if it comes on when on AC then you will need to change the internal battery/s other than tjhat the circuit is damaged
some models do not have AC chargers

if this is new or under warranty make a claim ASAP as they go out of models so quickly they have a poor warranty system
