Hi abzellar, one of two thing could be wrong with it.
if the menu button on the main screen says Esc instead of menu, then it is in the search/view map function. just press the esc button and it should go to the main map.

if not, then just reset it and let it in clear view of the open sky outside, this could take up to 30 minutes depending on the conditions but normally they (the satellites) will lock on within 5 minutes.

there are 2 ways to reset your 4040

  1. turn it on and then hold the power button for 15 seconds. after it turns off, hold the power button until it starts. let it sit outside as explained previously.
  2. start the gps and once its booted up, using a paper clip, insert it in the rest hole on the side and let it restart. let it sit outside as explained previously.
if you need further help, just ask.

How do I fix my F150 Ford from squeaking on the front driver side.

It's your universal joints. Your universal joints have become warn and what's happening is as you accelerate its moving and the loose universal joints are moving which is causing the noise. It occurs at low speeds because of a slight wobble as speed increases the wobble goes away and so does the noise. It's best to change the font and back at the same time you can find them at your local part store starting at $19.99 each. As for your front end lubricate it real good. Hope this was helpful.

I own 2001 Kia Optima LX, it has 121k miles on it. The check engine light is on, and recently it jerks when moving. It does not pickup speed. It moves at 20-40 miles/hour, then after a while it picks up...

The locking steering wheel is a mystery to me , but the poor performance and check engine light make me think fuel filter / fuel pump.
I had a very bad experience with an 02 kia , only had 50,000 miles on it when the timing belt went and destroyed the engine , so........ i always mention to people with kia's to have the belt adjusted and inspected or replaced if you don't know how old the belt is.

My tom tom cant read where we are and it is indicating our position on a road which is 15 miles away.

it sounds like it lost the satellites.

take it outside in clear view of the open sky and restart it and let it outside for up to 30 minutes or untill it locates and locks on to the satellites again.

Magellan gps 2000 won't lock in on satellites even after 3 hrs of trying- searching is on the screen telling me its searching

Possible solution, at least my GPS2000 finally locked up. Initialize; enter current location and time; wait until there are more than four (I had seven) satellites available; find a location nearby that has a clear view nearly to the horizon in all directions; place the GPS2000 on a stationary base with the antenna as horizontal as practical; wait; mine finally locked up after perhaps 30 to 40 minutes. Patience and an abundance of satellites, I think, are the answer. Good luck.
