An reset or an update might fix it, but it could also have a bad digitizer (touch part of screen)

turn on your 3100 and locate the reset on the left of your unit (small pinhole) use a paperclip to insert and depress the reset switch.

if that fails and you want to try an update, you can get the update for the north american version HERE you have to sign in and register before they will let you download anything.

be patient if you install this update and dont interrupt it and follow the directions to the letter, or your unit will not function.

if you need further help, just let me know.

Touch Screen


You probably just need to reset it.
Magellan Maestro models- the location of reset button is on the left, right, or bottom side inside a small hole. Use an object to apply pressure to depress the reset button. Also try holding the power button down for up to 10 seconds to power the unit off and again holding the power button down for up to 10 seconds to power the unit on.
You may need to update your firmware. Go to this site
http://www.magellangps.com/support/
select your product family, model, and then press the submit button. Firmware updates are located in the updates/upgrade section.

This should solve the problem. Good luck. If this helps, plz rate it fixa. Thank you kindly.

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

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.
