My boyfriend has this gps and it froze up on him around the time that the clocks went back what can I do


Try sending it back to Magellan or go to Magellans Website www.magellan.com and download their updates. You will first need to download Magellans software - then hook your gps to the pc with the usb cord.
One other thing - try a wall charger for 48 hours. I have seen this work.

Will not charge thru the USB or the car charger. Is the battery replaceable?


a magellan 4040 can not charge through the USB port and if it wont charge with a known good car or home charger, then read below.



This is very common problem with this and many model of magellans.

Try the car charger.

Make sure
green light is on the car charger and let it plugged in for awhile, then hold the power button (up to ten seconds) until it starts..if that fails

The following Magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 3000, 3050, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and the 6000 are known to have faulty dc connectors...if your Magellan
gps is not charging or will not power up, its most likely the dc power port...

You can
buy the port or get it repaired, HERE


if the links dont work or If you need further help, just let me know.

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.

Unit will turn on only after holding down the power button. The magellan screen is displayed, and a load bar zips across underneath that, then it just turns back off. Is there a reset button that might...


Charging plug is broken off of the printed circuit board. Battery is extremely low on juice, so it won't fully turn on. Once I get home I plan on splicing the charger into the battery wiring directly to see if that will work. This is the second magellan I've had...the other one did the same thing. I'm guessing that it's the same problem. Haven't dropped either one of them...other than they like to fall off of the windshield (suction cup). Seems like they need to come up with a new design (for the circuit board).

Charge Problem


Hello guitarman249,

It sounds like a bad battery. Theoretically, it could be the charger but if the red light on the charger still comes on when the unit is plugged in then the battery is the more likely culprit. The only way to really know for sure is to try charging the unit with a different cable, such as the USB cord used to connect the GPS to a computer. The GPS should charge when connected to USB. If it doesn't, then it's the battery.

Like most GPS receivers, the battery on this one is not replaceable by the user. If you do determine that the battery is causing the problem you will need to contact Magellan tech support to arrange a battery replacement.

Best Regards,
Ken

I have owned the Magellan Maestro 4250 for 6 months and the black cloudy spots just surfaced.  After talking to the Techs at Magellan (800) 707-9971, they advised me to send it into the factory for repairs.  Hopefully the one year warranty covers it.

Maestro 3250 Charging


I accidentally ran into this problem today when I inadvertantly plugged the wrong charger into the unit. I'm guessing that the device isn't getting the precise current it's expecting and thus thinks it's plugged into a computer. I'd suggest getting hold of a different charger and see if the problem goes away.
