Have you tried updating the software on your device.
Go to Magellan.com and download the Magellan Content Manger:

Once you've installed Content Manger onto your PC, connect your device to your PC using the USB cord. The Content Manager will allow you to update your 1340 with the latest software and updates which 'should' fix the problem that you're having with your unit.

My magellan roadmate has a small ding on screen. I will not respond to touch on certain screens. Can it be taken appart for repair?


yes it can, but youll have to get the lcd with the digitizer, because the are soldered on the the lcd and very difficult to replace.

you can buy a good used, but broken 1200 off ebay for under 20.00 normally, because the 1200 has a problem with the usb port becoming damaged or broken and ask the seller if the screen is good

here is a quik search of broken 1200 on 43e7187.gif

you can also by a new screen but its harly worth it, since yyou can buy a new 1200 for under 70.00

if you need further help, just reply to this post

Tried to update the firmware on the Magellan 1470


Just got off the phone with Magellan East (my guess is India as I had a hard time understanding them and said "What?" 20 or 30 times) to which they said that there is no way to reboot these systems. I updated to 2.20 and it froze my GPS. I have to send my unit back to them and they are sending me a refurbished one free. I am outside the warranty period according to them but have AAA, which gave me an extra year on warranty, so they are honoring it. Give them a call at 8007079971 to get this fixed.

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.

I just got a Magellan roadmate 1200 over the weekend from a friend and when I plug it in it loads to a screen that says the usb is connected follow pc instructions


The USB must be for charging the unit and downloading updates when it becomes available. You have to unplug the USB and use the battery power to put in addresses .My 1200 does the same.
