Question about Magellan RoadMate GPS
It will turn on and that's all it does will not work so I can put in an address in for our trip.
There may be several reasons why the device does not move past the Magellan logo screen. Unfinished map/software update, corrupt file, or an issue with the device flash memory. Magellan supports several models by reloading the device software by sending you a link to wipe the device clean. Please contact them through chat at http://www.magellangps.com/support .

map file will not boot. push the RESET button with the bent end of a paperclip located on the right side of the unit next to the power supply input.

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.

Sounds like you got a bad update, you might be able to download an update from magellan, and put it on your sd card then load it that way to finish the update.
