Question about Magellan Maestro 4050 GPS

1 Answer

My maestro 4050 stopped receiving a signal from the satelite

The unit will not refresh position. There is no signal strength indicated on the signal meter. It will calculate a rout from the last position that was received when it decided to freeze up.

How do I download the updates to my TOMTOM GPS


You use a program from tomtom wesite named tomtom home. Download to pcinstall it then connect device to pc using usb cable. The tomtom home program will list all updates available and install all free ones. Ensure you make a backup first. If you have accidentally selected the flight mode from the menu options this turns off the satelite receiver so check this setting also from the menu you can select the satelite network and see if there is a signal being received and how many satellites it is connecting to. It requires at least three to function and possibly will not work with less than five if there is none then a reinstall of the program will need to be done following instructions from web site on reinstalling the application. You must backup the device first as you cannot download a free map. Follow the website instructions and if there is still no satelite signals being received then its busted. From the main map screen the signal strength may be segn as a small icon like a volume icon. Press this and you also get signal information.

Casio atomic watch only has intermittent receive indicator


The receive indicator tells you the strength of the signal when the timing signal was transmitted, (this occurs only during the night).

The strength of the signal dictates how much of the indicator is shown i.e. full strength, full picture, half strength, half picture, no picture, no signal.

Signal strength seems to vary with location (how far you are from the transmitter), so perhaps you are in a poor reception area.

If the screen says searching for satelite the prblem is with the satelite receiver not the TV. (not familiar with Direct TV problems - usually signal strength alignment issues)

You need to put it in "discovery" mode first. I do not think it has a full stereo BT profile, it only accepts a regular headset profile.

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.

No Satelite Signal Indication


The "front end" of your Receiver might be defective. Since your other unit is working then what might be happening is the signal to your unit might be dropping, to check this I would use a Satellite power meter, however if you do not have one you can use your other unit and connect it to the cable that your supposed defective unit is connected to. If the unit works then the problem is the supposed defective unit, if the unit does not work then this denotes a possible cable problem. Tell me if this works for you?
