Here is the link to the manual if you need it; Page 107 of the manual (page 114 pdf) explains the reset procedure which may solve your problem if you can access any menus. You could also try removing the battery, waiting a while and then replacing the battery. If none of that helps, the contact details for magellan support are at the end of the manual - all reports I have had are that they are quite good. Hope this helps :)

Magellan roadmate 1440 froze in the first window , with the little clock at the bottom

Most of these devices have a reset button on the unit base. It looks no bigger than a pin head and is usually recessed.

Turn on and take a straightened paper clip or cocktail stick, press into and keep pressed the reset button for a slow count to 15. Release and then let the unit go through its reset procedure before pressing anything else.

Screen froze up. how to solve this problem?

if you have a 4040 as listed in the title, charge it up for a few hours, then turn it on..once it boots up to the point it freezes, use a paper clip and insert it in the tiny hole on the left side bottom on the gps to reset it...

if it still seems like its frozen after you do that, let me know and ill have you do something else.

My magellan position froze in Colorado and stays frozen.

try a hard reset. start the gps and using a paper clip insert it in the little pin hole on the side of your 4040 and take the gps outside in full view of the open sky and let it aquire the satellites, it may take up to 30 minutes it lock on to the satellites. if that fails, follow the link below to update the unit to the latest firmware for the 4040 you must register it on the magellan site before they will let you download anything.

We used our GPS on Sunday and it just froze on the same information on the screen,. The direction page came up and updated but the map part is frozen and is still frozen now is there a way to reset?

the rest is the little pinhole on the left side, but this is a common problem on this model magellan, you need the latest update if you dont have it already. sadly if the update is interrupted or not done properly, it will be rendered useless and update reinstalled. you can get the update and manual here


good luck

Frozen screen on Magellan RoadMate 2200T

Press the button to turn it off but hold it for about 10 seconds. Let go and then press it to turn it on. This resets it.
