Hi tchen2005, try the hard reset first. its the little hole on the side of the unit. while unit is off, use a paperclip the reset the unit. if that does nothing to fix the problem, get the latest update. Magellan has two different updates for the 4040, follow the directions to make sure you get the right one. if you still have the same problem after you install the update, the digitizer is probably broken. hopefully that is not the case, because the digitizer is part of the screen and cant be replaced without replacing the screen unless your very skilled with soldering micro electronics.

if you need further help, just reply to this post.

How do I set up Magellan Roadmate 5045 to pedestrian mode


Hello,

Thanks for requesting my knowledge to help you. I have located the manual. When you go to this link I am giving you to view on the line manual, you go to page 20 on the manual ( which is point of interest POI) AND look at number 8, this will tell you how to change to pedestrian mode. I am sure this will help you, just follow directions. I could of typed this out, however, i felt that this manual also might help you in other areas you might need. Here is the link to copy and paste in your browser.

Shuts down almost immediately after starting even on charge mode...in non-charge mode "battery level critically low"


Hi matchmakers0

this is a very common problem with your model gps

the following advice pertains to the following magellan gps systems.

Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 2500, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4040, 4050, 5310 and 6000t

i fix these and many other magellan gps daily so when considering my advice , please understand i do not google my solutions.

assuming your car charger is working (the little green light is on) and your magellan still wont start up after holding the power button while its plugged in for up to ten seconds and still does not start..read below

this is actually a very common problem with these magellan power ports...they are poor quality from the factory and always and i mean always fail..the new ports that you find on ebay are 100% better then the factory port.

if your able to replace that power port yourself, you can get one HERE, if not, ask the fellow that sells them for help.

due to some dubious "experts" on fixya, im not permitted to help you directly, but please follow the link above to get further help.

let me know if you need more help or info

Frozen Magellan


Big problem .. you had a bad firmware download and the unit is now stuck in the development mode. Two solutions .. 1) return to Magellan for a replacement. 2) If not in warranty .. there is a third party repair center on the internet .. use your browser and search for 'magellan triton repair'

My Maestro 3225 is stuck on the system settings


if your lucky, all it will need is a reset. start the unit and using a paper clip, insert it in the small hole on the side. if that fails, try the update using the Magellan link below...follow the update directions carefully. you must register your unit on the magellan site to download the update.

if neither solution works, id say the digitizer is bad (the touch screen) but the update normally cures this problem!

let me know if you need further help!

My magellan 3225 turns on, and goes to the system settings page, I cannot get to the main menu. I can go through all of the system settings but that is it


Is your GPS still stuck at the boot screen? Perhaps I can help. Please email me the detailed steps you have taken until you got stuck. My email is kazi at hotmail dot com.
