Make sure the gps in not muted. check the mute on and the sound turned up on the map screen and also check the sound in the options/system/ sound, if they are both ok and the try a hard reset 1st..turn the gps on then locate the little pin hole on the side, using a paper clip, push reset....if that fails, try the 2.18 update if you havent already. READ UPDATE INFO BEFORE UPDATING,VERY IMPORTANT

updates for any magellan can be found HERE
but read below first before getting the update

i cant stress enough that patients is a must here. this update is huge 1.75GB takes atleast 30 - 60 minutes depending on your system.

follow the instructions below whether you have updated your gps already or not!

There are few ways to solve this problem. i assume you installed the 2.18 update for the 3100 and assuming you tried the reset already, try and run the update again and follow the directions to the letter..make sure the battery is fully charged (i also keep mine plugged in if the update doesnt say not to) and do not try and run the update across a network. this update is huge 1.75GB and can take an hour or so depending on the computer..do not interrupt the update process. if you do not have the 2.18 update read me file, i can try and post it here, but its in PDF and dont think i can post that

if all else fails, magellan will fix or replace for free any of there gps that were rendered inoperable due to one of there updates.

either solution will work but magellans going to tell you to run the update again anyway before sending it back.

i gave you the 2 easyest ways to fix it,but
there are other ways to get it running again, but if your not comfortable copying and moving files...youll make it even worst then it is.

hope this helps.

Hard starting, misfire & cut out when revved with MAP sensor connected


Hi Bernie, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair

Bernie, this is hard to say without diagnosis, but I can tell you that 99% of the time when you unplug the MAP Sensor and it runs better, then its usually the MAP Sensor. If it should turn out that a new MAP doesn't fix it, then check for broken or frayed wires and check the connector for damage. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair website and check out my satisfied customer testimonials.

Magellan 3200 freeze


there is a little square at the top right corner of the screen. when you first turn it on, press that square to see the satelites it has locked on to, once a few of those turn green (meaning you are locked on by sattelites) see if the map starts workign again. Mine did the same thing and i thought is was broken, but depending on where you are, it can take up to 10 minutes for the map to start working (as it need that astelites to tell it where it is and what is around it) get it? so just try waiting before you put in a destination.

Cant get the two maps to align together =(


That totally baffled me! You need to open the map on one screen and the tablet on the other. Close your DS (I mean actually close your system, I'm serious) then reopen it. That had be stumped for a long time.

Al right what you want to do is go to a T-mobile store and regester your device... 
But then the only way to do that is getting the sidekick plain with them and when there will be a G instead of the phone icon...
