How To Reset Your Magellan Maestro/Roadmate GPS Units

Factory Reset
Do not attempt to perform a factory reset on the Roadmate or Maestro GPS units by holding down both the "Reset" and "Power" buttons. This will cause the GPS unit to format its own hard drive. Doing so will erase all data, including the GPS software, from the unit.

  1. Locate the button marked "Reset" on the left, right or bottom of the unit.
  2. Using a thin object, such as a paper clip, depress the button for two to three seconds. The unit should reset.
  3. If the unit does not reset, immediately press the button again and hold it for up to 10 seconds.
If your Maestro GPS Touch Screen Doesn't work, try performing a Hardware Reset
  1. Remove the Magellan Maestro from the holding cradle.
  2. Hold down the "Power" button on the right side of the device, until the unit powers on.
  3. Straighten the end of a paper clip. Place the paper clip in the reset hole, located on the left side of the GPS unit. Hold down the "Reset" button for 10 seconds. Remove the paper clip.
  4. Turn the Magellan Maestro unit off by holding down the "Power" button. Turn the unit back on again. The device is now reset.

If your Roadmate GPS is locked up, try performing a Hardware Reset
  1. On the RoadMate, press + + - - + -
  2. The "hidden menu" will appear.
  3. From there, you can access the shell and perform a hard reset.

Occasionally, a unit will need to be reset. This can be due to software errors, firmware updates or simply at the command of technical support staff. A reset either will restart the unit, possibly clearing up any minor errors, or will restore the unit to the settings it was built with. There are three major Magellan units, which utilize different methods to perform this task.

Things You'll Need:
  • A thin object (such as a paper clip)

Using the stylus, tap "Main Menu" and select "View."
Tap "Settings," and select "Restore Factory Settings." You will be given the option to confirm this action. Be sure that you want to reset to the settings that the GPS was built with. This action is irreversible.
Tap "Confirm," and the unit will begin to reset.

Maestro/Roadmate GPS Units
Locate the button marked "Reset" on the left, right or bottom of the unit.
Using a thin object, such as a paper clip, depress the button for two to three seconds. The unit should reset.
If the unit does not reset, immediately press the button again and hold it for up to 10 seconds.


Tips & Warnings
  • Do not attempt to perform a factory reset on the Roadmate or Maestro GPS units by holding down both the "Reset" and "Power" buttons. This will cause the GPS unit to format its own hard drive. Doing so will erase all data, including the GPS software, from the unit.

Yes, you can reset.

Access the secret " " menu and reset user data, you'd be amazed at how much that can fix. At user menu (after reset) press "-" and repeat key at the same time. select "reset user data". Also, if your having GPS problems, you can also select reset GPS data.

Post again if this doesn't work for you.
