Question about Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Maestro 4040 code

I did call Magellen and they said I had to pay another 99.00 for the code. I bought it from TigerDirect like most people and it's false advertisement!!! My shipping receipt from TigerDirect says it comes with voice command, nothing about a code.. Do you have the code,, if not you have not solved my problem so I will contact the Better Business Beaurea!!! ASAP

RE: Voice Command...

I havent seen the TigerDirect ad up but:

1: Voice COMMAND is a $99 OPTION= It allows YOU to speak to the unit- (Speak commands TO THE UNIT, EG= select options)

The unit does NOT come with this feature enabled....

That said the unit DOES COME with SayWhere Text to Speech , that talks to YOU. (Hear when to make each turn, including the street name)

So to recap= 4040 talks to YOU, but to command the unit (You talk to the unit and it perform a function) it costs another $99


BTW: I just got my 4040 today
Firmware 2.36, Maps #27 (3rd Q-2006)

While RUNNING a simulation of a route- IF I click on a POI and ask the unit to figure a route to the newly selected POI... the unit stops responding- then crashes, then reboots.


Not happy--- Sounds like to me the CPU can't handle the extra loading...

How to take it apart to get in side of it .The power cord plug in side the gps broke.I need to get in side to fix it .Gps is a magellen maestro model no.4040


I don't recommend taking it apart, but if you must just remove the 4 very small phillips screws from the back. An eyeglass screw driver set will be small enough.
