Question about Magellan Maestro 4250 GPS

2 Answers

I have a Magellan Maestro 4000 ROM wiped. Does not start

I have a Magellan Maestro 4000. Trying to update the firmware I lost the files. After that, the device would only display the Magellan logo with the progress that and freeze. Even worse, I formatted the flash in an attemp for fixing it. Now it will only access the bottloader menu, and if I push only the power button it won't start. Now it is totally bricked :(. I have been trying to look for winceimg.bin and cks and uboot.bin and cks, but I have not found anything yet. Any help is EXTREMELY appreciated

I think since you formatted your GPS, you deleted all the maps and software on it. Essentially, you can't use your GPS anymore.

Magellan Maestro 3100 stuck on


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.

Magellan maestro 4000, 4040, 4050 vs mio c220,c230,


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.
