Magellan RoadMate 1200 Troubleshooting
RoadMate won't turn on
"The screen is black and/or not turning on."
Your battery may be discharged. Plug your RoadMate into your computer using a mini-USB cable and then try turning on the device. If that works, you will have to wait about 30 minutes until the battery is fully charged.
The screen may be disconnected, see our guide for repairing the screen. (link coming)
Screen is stuck on white
