    I just recieved a 3140, and I am having the same problem. I tried to calculate a route from my office to my house and the the unit keeps freezing after it tells me that it cannot calculate my route. WHat good is a GPS if it can't get you home!!!!!!!!

    I am going to try to play with it this weekend and if I can't resolve the issue I will return it to the store. This was not a cheap item so I don't know how much you have to pay to get a decent GPS.

    My 3100 will not show map when map icon is selected, just says "map" and freezes up. No response from Magellan. This is a brand new unit.

    Unit shuts down seconds after turning it on. I cannot get it open to see if there is a battery that needs to be replaced.

    system locks out and reboots itself, continuosly.

  • ohnxm1 Nov 25, 2008

    My Magellan Maestro 3100 gets confused and freezes when it does not know how to calculate a route. Then it reboots. Its annoying. Does anyone have a solution?

  • wolfman4140 Dec 06, 2008

    it is always locking up they need to recall this model and give us a updated model for what these cost it should not be locking

  • Anonymous Feb 23, 2009

    Unit refuses to go beyond the initial warning screen about operating while driving. No amount of resetting, powering on/off, plugging into the computer, etc. changes this behavior in any way.

    I've had it less than a year.

    I WILL *NEVER* PURCHASE ANOTHER MAGELLAN PRODUCT.

You can try a hard reset. Hold in the reset button (left side of unit, use a pin or toothpick), while turning on the unit. If you don't get the blue Magellan screen, you'll have to try again. If you get a screen with a blue background and a menu, turn it off and try again.
So far, this has fixed:
1. unit won't go on
2. unit reboots when routing
3. unit turns off after a few seconds

At least, it's fixed it for me. No idea why this happens, but it's pretty damn annoying. Give it a try.

start your 3100, then get a paper clip and depress the reset on the left side near the bottom of your 3100 to reset it and let it restart. that should fix it, but if it doesnt, let me know and ill tell you what to do next.

hi mmeinzer

charge it up for a few hours, then take it outside and start your 3100, then get a paper clip and depress the reset on the left side near the bottom of your 3100 to reset it and let it restart, then wait for a while (could take up to 30 minutes after a reset) and let it acquire/lock on to the satellites. that should fix it, but if it doesnt, let me know and ill tell you what to do next.

let me know if you need more help or info

go to Tech support at www.magellamgps.com tell them what has transpired and ask for 2.18 Update Recovery Files. This fixed my problem. Took a few email exchanges but I thought the responses were very quick.

Bin it - get a Tomtom.. my Roadamte 700 has had so many problems and Magellan support just don't care/respond.

Am getting a Tomtom 720T with maps and cameras preloaded - updates automatically each time you place it on its cradle attached to your PC/internet.
