SOURCE: Temperature below safe level warning when starting GPS

Ahh yes the ever so elusive temp. below safe level error. lol. (sorry) Attached to the radio board are 3 wires connecting to the top of your lcd. This is where the temp is read from. I know telling you this doesn't help, just info. This problem has been fixed from swapping out radio boards (the board that's behind your keypad), additionally swapping out hard drives. I'm not sure if the unit will detect the USB but, if you can, try re-loading whichever version you have ie. 4.32/5.14. As far as end user fixes, I don't exactly have one unless you can find a scrap unit that someone doesn't want b/c it's malfunctioned as well. Good luck and I wish I could of been more help. -Dan

SOURCE: Magellan Maestro 3250 wont power

Hi, as I have been in the situtaion with many electronic devices before I know how frustraing it can be when the car charger doesn't work any more. For every one out there reading this post if this happen to you again take the car charger portion that you put in the lighter for a charge, the part the goes in will unscrew, check the fuse. 99% of the time that fuse has blown and that is the cause of the unit not getting a charge, if replacing the fuse does not work the it is a bad unit and you will have to get another gps.

Look in your manual on how to do a hard reset. Usually is holding the power button/slide on while resetting. That can get it out of loops. This is a more brute force reset that just using the reset button

If that doesn;t work you should talk to magellan tech support. They are quite helpfull and may have some differant way to reset things. And at worse will be able to tell you if it is time to send it in.

The software of the unit got wiped out when you formatted the roadmate. The reason your system gets hungup was because it is not able to carr the updates you downloaded on it. Therefore, the solution was for you to have reset the device.

Now what you will have to do is to get some help from magellan, because they are the only source you can get the operating system from. Try to contact them from their help desk of:
Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST/PDT Telephone: 800 707 9971

They would provide you with the operating system for your unit.

Magellan roadmate 2120T too slow after updates

Magellan support was actually pretty good helping me with the exact same issue. The problem (at least in my case) was that the map files were fragmented. I tried using the Windows defragmenter, but that made fragmentation even worse! The Magellan support engineer recommended I download UltraDefrag instead:

Here's what I had to do to completely resolve my issue:
1. Download and install UltraDefrag
2. Connect my GPS to my PC
3. Move the MAP directory from my GPS drive (J:) to my hard disk
4. In UltraDefrag, make sure Action > Skip removable media is not selected
5. Run the optimizer (Ctrl-F7 or Action > Full optimization) after selecting the GPS drive (J: on my computer)
6. Copy the MAP files back to the J: drive AFTER optimization has completed

I double-checked the fragmentation after the files were copied and got 0%. After disconnecting the GPS from the PC, the unit rebooted and doing an address search no longer takes 15 seconds. POI searchs are also much faster than before.
