4.Your mobile manager will take about 30 minutes to reformat the Program Memory and Internal Drive.
5.When finished, your device will take you through a series of screens to calibrate the digitizer and set the time and date.

how do i do a hard reset on a magellen maestro 4040?

  • 1 Slide the Magellan GPS unit's powericon1.png switch to the off position, if your GPS has a two-way slide-style switch. Hold the switch in the off position for 8 seconds or more to reset the device.
  • 2 Slide the switch to the reset position if your GPS has a three-way switch. These switches feature "Reset," "Off" and "On" labels. Hold the switch on the reset position for 10 seconds to initiate a reset.
  • 3 Inspect your GPS for a reset pin hole if the unit has a push-down power button rather than a switch -- check the bottom and sides of the device for a pin-sized hole. Insert a pin or a straightened paperclip into the hole, pushing until you feel a slight pop. Hold the pin or clip down for 10 seconds and the GPS will reset.

    Try this;

    Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.


    You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

    - Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
    - Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
    - Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

    Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.

    Please RATE my solution at the bottom.

    Best of Luck.
