Magellan Maestro 4040 won't take firmware updates

Id have tried to update to firmware 2.36 and 3.61, but the GPS won't update. The software downloads fine to my computer and starts the update process, but it fails shortly into the program and backs out of the update process. The only error message I get is that the GPS did not update.

Don't buy a Magellan. There is little to no support, and their web based support redirects to no where useful for upgrades. I'd sell you my 4040, but can't in good conscience sell it to anyone.

Have a 4040 maestro magellan will not get off the magellan screen


if this just happened, and you have not tried to update it (sometimes the update causes this) then power the 4040 on and once it finished loading to the blue screen, using a paper clip, depress the reset switch on the left side and let it restart (little pinhole on the left side under the usb port)


if you need further help, just reply to this post.
