Question about Magellan RoadMate 3050T GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Magellan Maestro 4000

How do I get my Windows Vista-based laptop to recognize the unit when it is plugged in? Each time it is plugged it, Vista recognizes that a removable drive titled "TFAT" is installed and a removable drive if the SD card is in. Thanks!!

Hi scott,

i might not understand what your asking, but if vista is listing the tfat and the sd card slot, then it is being recognized...thats what its suppose to do.

with the gps on and booted, once you plug in the usb cord, the hardware wizard should pop up and install it, then youll see it listed as tfat in your computer.

if im missing your ? please post back so i can help you further.

I can't tell if my magellan maestro 4000 gps is charging.


this could be happening for a few reasons but the most common is that its probably not charging.

before checking anything else, plug your 4000 in to a known good charger, then press and hold the power button for up to ten seconds till it starts.

if that fails, its likely not charging

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


the following magellan 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050 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 get help to repaired it, here
or buy the port here

if you need further help, just let me know.

some software only works with XP go to megellan web sit you may need to buy the update for vista and windows 7 on CD. and if you plug the GPS into a PC that doesn't have XP it could crash or not work at all

Power cord is not charging unit. There seems to be a loose fit in the socket of the Magellan Maestro 4000. Is the problem with the charger cord or the Maestro 4000 socket?


its probably not charging...very common problem with this and many others.

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

Brand new Magellan Maestro 4000 does not turn on or indicate powe


I had the same problem and I solved it by cutting a few strands of speaker wire and twisting them together and inserting them into the center of the generic car gharger end which plugs into the Maestro 4000, It seems that the 4000 has a very small center conducter on the GPS itself and by adding a few strands of speaker wire about 1/2" long into the plug before pluging it into the 4000 it allows it to makes contact with the small power inlet conductor which is smaller than most generic cigarette lighter 5vdc power cords. I did this to mine and it powered up right away. The other solution is to buy the actual car power cord from Magellan which has the proper size connecton and makes proper connection all the time.

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.
