Did you try to install the "Region Update 2.18" from magellangps.com ?

  • If you did, there is a solution posted for that.
  • If not, have you ever done a back-up onto an SD card?
  • If you did, copy USBTRANS folder from the backup to the Maestro SYS folder via a USB cable. Try it now.
  • If it still doesn't work, you will probably have to send it to Magellan for repair. Be prepared to wait a few months for it to be returned, and don't expect them to contact you with updates. I know that stinks, but it is the way it is.

    If the "Region Update 2.18" failed, here is the procedure:

    If you followed the procedure closely, you now have an SD card with your backup on it. The backup consists of two folders: BACKUP, and USBTRANS. Insert the backup SD card in your PC's reader slot and open a "file explorer" aka "Windows Explorer", not to be confused with "Internet Explorer". You will use Windows Explorer to click and drag the USBRANS folder to the Maestro.

    With the Maestro 3100 connected to the PC, a couple of Explorer folders will open and you can see the file structure for the GPS in 1, and in the other one a separate file structure for the blank SD card needed for the update. Look at the file structure for the GPS and you should see a handful of folders including "SYS".



    • Start the upgrade program, following the procedures.

    • Click the NEXT button at the bottom of the procedures screen.

    • Immediately copy the backed up USBTRANS folder (and all contents) to the SYS folder on the GPS.

    • The update should now find the Maestro 3100 and proceed with the update.

    SUMMARY: copy USBTRANS (it should contain 1 file: UNIT.DAT)


    • from your BACKUP SD card (not the one in the Maestro)

    • to your Maestro 3100's SYS folder.

go to Tech support at www.magellamgps.com tell them what has transpired and ask for 2.18 Update Recovery Files. This fixed my problem. Took a few email exchanges but I thought the responses were very quick.
