Battery does not keep a charge


hi neloamaicai


The following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and 6000t

i fix these and many other magellan gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.

assuming your car charger is working (the little green light is on) and your magellan still wont start up after holding the power button while its plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not start..read below

this is actually a very common problem with these magellan power ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then the factory port.

if your able to replace that power port yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that sells them for help.

due to some dubious "experts" on fixya, im not permitted to help you directly, but please follow the link above to get further help.

let me know if you need more help or info

I need to replace the speaker and battery in my Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Receiver. Where can I order these parts?


ebay...buy a broken one..i buy them all the time on there, but normally they need a new power port, because they wont charge...if you replace the battery and still have the same problem, maybe its not charging the battery because of the power port

My Magellan Maestro 3210 constantly says low battery while on trip and shutoff, I have it plugged into the astray why would the battery be low, how do I get it off battery power setting, or why is it doing...


Usually when you see low battery like that it means the battery itself needs to be replaced at it can't hold a charge or enough of a charge to be usefull. If you unit is over 18-24 months old then th e battery is most likely the problem. This will happen even if you have always used external power as the battery doesn;t get properlly cycled enough.

It is possible that it is the power source you are using is too low but sounds more like the battery is the problem.

If you have warrenty the battery should be replaced by Magellan. If not a replacement battery is about $30 and is something you may be able to do. You need to remove the back cover and unplug the old battery and plug in the new one and put it all back together.

Here is one link for a battery but there are other just search for Maestro 3210 battery with google or bing and you should find a few places that offer them.

Replacing the battery in a magellan maestro 4370


thats a fairly new unit and i doubt if the battery is shot already. it could be, but verify that is shot.

1st verify that its charging. hook up the home or car charger, then go into the main menu, then options, then power options and see if the battery indicator is moving left to right..if it is, its charging. if its not moving and shows a low battery, then its not charging.

if the meter is fully green and shouts off when unplugged form power, i would disconnect the battery then hook it back up and check the charging again

let me know if you still need to replace the battery and ill find you one and tell you how to replace it.

Battery does not keep a charge. Can the battery


yes, the batter can be re placed, but i would verify its charging before buying a battery.

make sure green light is on the car charger (or a known good charger0 and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..

after its started, go to the system setting. the battery meter should be moving left to right. if its all green and turns off when unplugged, the battery needs replaced.

your part # for your battery should be 37-00030-001you can get a battery HERE but verify your unit with the seller.

if it only has a few bars and is not moving while plugged it, it is not charging.

this is a very common problem for the models listed below.

the following magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050 and the 6000 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your magellan gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...

you can get help to repaired it, here
or buy the port here

if you need further help, just let me know.

Magellan 2000 doesn't power up


try replacing the battery. ususally if the battery is dead it will freeze or not turn on. if this doesn't work magellan will replace it with a new one at a very reasonable price. I just replaced a magellan 800 with a magellan 3210 for $132.00. your may get a better deal. call magellan
if you have an a/c 110 volt to 5 volt converter for the magellan, try charging it in the house with that one rather than the car charger.
