Only one thing would cause that: a severely corrupted firmware. Unfortunately to reload the firmware when the unit is dead it must be dismantled and the firmware storing chip accessed directly with a special tool that only the factory has. Sending it to the factory to be repaired will cost a lot so ask a quote before doing it, you might find out that it will be cheaper just to buy a new unit.

Magellan roadmate 1440 fatal error


Same has happened to my gps unit too. The best bet thing is to contact Magellan and they will advise you to send the unit in for replacement with a refurbished one. or get a new one. I am still waiting for mine and as of date, nothing yet. How is it that their updates caused the fatal error? Anyone??

My magellan roadmate 1200 will not turn on


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

if you tried charging it with both house charger and car charger and tried to start it like i explain and it still will not start, its most likely a bad power port which is very common with this model and many other magellan models.

I pluged in my Magellan Roadmate 1200 in to the computer with the usb cable thinking it would charge. It now says it has a fatal error and that screen won't go away. Did I erase the memory on it? I...


im sure its not trash, but i dont think the usb will charge this model ( the usb wont charge all models of magellan, only some) while the unit is on, use a paperclip and insert it in the small hole on the side of the gps, that should return it to its normal state.

if you need further help, just let me know.
