Question about Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Receiver
I went in and plugged the unit in and the battery was not taking a charge...critically low....then it shut down....I feel that the port is loose or broken off and now unable to plug in what so ever to charge the battery...the corp says they can't help me, just replace the unit...$$$
Anything I can do at home...?
I can sell you a new port or repair it for you

This problem is a design flaw on all Magellan Maestro GPS from the 3100 series to the 4xxx series. This problem can easily be fixed, but you need to be handy with a soldering iron.
NEEDED: 1. Fine tip soldering iron, solder, soldring flux or paste.
1. Remove the four screws on the back of the unit holding the back cover to the GPS 2. Pry open but be very careful, make sure the SD card slot is empty 3. Open from the SD card slot side and then remove the cover slowly, remove the speaker cable 4. Use soldering paste or soldering flux, apply some to the leads of the yellow female DC port on the PC board 5. Heat the soldering iron to temp, and then press the solding iron against the leads of the yellow dc port and also apply some solder. 6. Do this to all four terminals of the dc port 7. Now plug in the dc power jack into the port and make sure the unit is charging... 8. Replace cover, make sure the audio and power jack is in the slot first, then close the cover and screw in the 4 screws.
Hope this helps
