Question about Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Receiver

Time displayed is fixed- does not change

I contact tech sup. about 4 months ago, and was told to Reset the unit. Did that, and for one second the time is correct. Then the time displayed is fixed. Unit does navigate, guide, etc.

Tech sup. subsequently told me to do the firmware 2.62 upgrade. Successful, but time displayed is still fixed.

Garmin won't boot up


Same happens to me. I Called to Garmin and the cost of repair was the same the GPS cost itself. As far I read the problem could be solve by a hard reset, but at the same time they don't recommend to do it by your self because can damage the GPS unit.

I was told by Garmin that I would have one free map update after purchasing the unit. We tried to download the update, but it did not take and would like to know how to re-try the down-load. Can you help...


Yes, just redo the download. Be sure the unit is hooked up via USB and navigate to the Garmin site. The download and install take a REALLY LONG TIME. It is not grab a download and run. Up to hours...you just have to be patient.

Garmin Nuvi 1300 (and 1490T) won't start up


A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes on 'loading maps,' or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Etrex vista will not display any map


I had the same problem for months. i don't know what part of this worked or if it was a fluke that it finally worked. I downloaded the newer firmware for the garmin and installed it ( http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/ ) then tried adding maps, that didn't work, then tried 3-4 times resetting the garmin, and each time tried adding maps and it didn't work - turns out I wasn't really resetting it (I think) it appeared that the successful reset was holding down the clicker key and the pages key while starting up, and keeping them held down for a long time (15 seconds?) - there was no sign that it was resetting except a faint illumination, then when I let go of those 2 keys it went through the setup sequence. the only way I knew it had finally reset was when the page came my pointer was in the middle of the united states. I had repeatedly tried resetting before and the pointer/map page came up to where I was last at, so it hadn't really been resetting. I'm very displeased that it took 5-10 tries to get this to work and this happened on 2 units.

I reloaded the maps after it had properly reset and they actually display and are on the map list!
this is the second etrex unit ive had this problem with, and the first one was just as flaky - taking many reset events (see master and super master reset on other etrex threads at this site)

Garmin Quest is out of whack


Hello, I currently own a Garmin quest myself, and some time ago I had some strange problems myself, I am a electronics technician, and I do have a work around for you. I will explain the problems and a cure for you to try, none of the work arounds depend on any parts to be removed.

1. NO RECEIVING SATELLITE TELEMETRY. I beleieve this could be due to a number of reasons, but more so at sometime corrupted telemetry was the problem to fix this,
a turn GPS on when booted (initialised)
b. depress menu
select settings
select Time Setup
when in Time Setup depress MENU
Select SET DATE
Depress OK button
Depress OK button again on the numberic keypad that appears on the screen (DONE)
what this seems to do is resets the internal date/time clock and the unit starts to work again.
the Second workaround is this but takes hours to perform.

Simply turn the Guest on and allow the battery to fully discharge, usually this works to TOTALLY flush the Memory again, but on my unit I have to setup all the maps again, this is easy to perform, but just takes time. I hope this helps you.

Magellan Maestro 3200 GPS - wrong time on unit


My Megellan Roadmate had the same problem the time was way off and the date read 8/06/2009 instead of 06/17/2009. I tried everything the previous posting mentioned to no avail. I called Magellan tech support and they talked me thru it. (1) Turn the unit on outside ( not in a building ) (2) Hold down on the power button for 20sec. then let go. (3) Turn the unit on and go to the map. (4) Touch the upper rt. corner were the bars are, the screen will change and say tracking X (#) of sattilites. wait untill the bars for the sattiligts all change to green now you can go back to the main menu and the time should be correct.

Fine Digital FineDrive 400 GPS Receiver Problem


The company went bankrupt. I get a "unable to read map data error". Called for over a month, sent email after email. Finally contacted a company that fixes Finedrives and they told me the company (Fine Digital) is out of business and will not warranty the unit...ten months old at the time. The company who fixes these machines said that it would be cheaper to buy a new(different company) gps system compared to having them fix the Finedrive 400.

Poor directions


Go to setting (the wrench icon) press it, then look for Navigation, then check Route Preference to see if it is set for either fastest time or shortest distance. If you want shortest distance, the upgrade most likely reset it to Fastest Time (default).
