Magellan Roadmate 800 freezes

My 18 month old Magellan Roadmate 800 freezes up just when I need it to work. I've turned it off, then on again. Is there a way to fix this problem. Would a new battery solve the problem?

    MAGELLN 800 FREEZES UP

  • jamoore1 Jun 15, 2008

    My Magellan Roadmate 800 freezes up...has LONG delays of no activity. And when I power it on, it states it's "searching for satelite" but after 2 hrs. I just had to cut it off! What is happening? These items cost too much to have such happening...where is Magellan...do they have any fixes or answers? I've sent mine off for repair one time, but it's acting up again! Lots of money for almost nothing - when you need it.

My roadmate 800 will not turn on. When I use the reset switch, it goes to the blue "Logo" screen then nothing.

if its freezing on the magellan screen, there is a special utility from magellan to fix this issue. fortunately i havent had to use it yet so use caution while installing.

you can get the utility HERE

let me know if you need further help.

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.

turn off your unit with the slide switch on the top. Hold down the repeat button or the one beside the slide switch and then put the slide switch back to the on position. Then select hdd tools then format. exit out and turn the switch off and back on and it should work

Magellan RoadMate 2000

Your best bet is to contact Magellan directly. Their website is not the easiest place I've ever navigated. I did not see a specific listing for the Roadmate 2000, but when I queried them about upgrades for your unit, the response was Roadmate 2000/2200T. Manuals are available, but again nothing was noted about supporting the 2000.
I've provided their phone # is below. Good luck.

Reinstalling magellan road 800 on pc with out cd

You can download Magellan MapSend and/or VantagePoint from their website for free and reinstall on your computer:
http://www.magellangps.com/products/software.asp

These will let your computer talk to your GPS again.

If you need to reinstall maps, though, you can't get a new CD for free. You would have to start a customer support case with Magellan and provide proof of purchase.

Magellan 2200T won't completely boot up

Reset unit, and then turn off, but hold power button for at least 10 seconds, then power back on, and when ever you turn off unit, hold power button for 10 seconds, had the same problem with mine, this solved it, it seems that just turning off the unit till screen shuts down puts it in a sleep mode. Hope this solves your problem.
