Re: New magellan maestro 4040 doesn't work

It depends. The way most Magellans work is that when you begin putting in addresses, the GPS looks for addresses that match it, and greys-out numbers and letters that don't match. If it stops on one address you're trying to put in, it's possible that the address is not in the memory.

Installed a new battery in my magellan maestro 4040. battery has been charging for over 12 hours. only 2 bars like original battery.

with the 4040 plugged in to the charger, wiggle the cord to different positions and see if it loses contact (stops charging)

this model has a very common problem with the power port failing..iif it loses contact by testing it in the manner i suggested, it will require either a new one install or at the very least, resoldered,

let me know what you find and ill help you further.

Have a 4040 maestro magellan will not get off the magellan screen

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.
