Question about Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Maestro 3100 has wrong strating point

Often when I turn on my unit, it thinks I am at the last location it took me to, which could be several days ago. I type in a new destination, but it is starting me from a weird location, not where I really am. Turning it off and then on doesn't seem to work, and I usually have strong satellite signal and power. Sometimes if I drive for a while it will regain its correct location and recalc the route.

Hi,
I can understand the problem in the unit so to over come this problem you have to reset the unit .When you reset the unit surely the unit will show your current location address and also it will not recalc the route.
Follow the steps to reset the unit :
****************************************
On the left hand side at the lower bottom coner you can see a small pin hole there named as reset .Just insert a paper clip in to the hole when the unit is on.this is the way to reset the unit......

Can you change a GPS navigation system from street name to postcode


I am not sure what you mean by " post code" but a gps uses maps that are stored on the unit itself. In order to make a change on how it shows locations, it would mean that the maps would have to be edited. Any change like you are suggesting would involve a lot of work with computer programming. Since it is not a standard method of locating, it would not be marketed.
