Hi,
No need to worry about that this problem arise when the unit is not piciking up the signal.In that situation what you can do is ,you can do a small reset to your unit . In the left hand side bottom corner you can see a small pin hole named as reset
.What you have to do is turn on the unit and insert a paper clip in the reset hole and gently push it inside.So the unit will be reseted surely 100% it will show your location.....

Yes, I solved my problem by finding the reset button on my GPS. Perhaps if I could find my instruction book, the process would have been quicker.

I have heard that there is an upgrade to the Magellan Maestro 4040, where you can actually speak to the device and get things like directions to the closest resturant. How do I get this upgrade if...


Upgrade your Magellan Maestro with hands-free Voice Command & Control for the easiest, most satisfying navigation experience.

Your Maestro 4040 will respond to your voice commands to give you quick information and an instant route to nearby points of interest. Activate Voice Command & Control and find the nearest coffee, food, gas and ATM simply by speaking. Ask for your current location and distance to destination and hear the details as you keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. Just say the word and get instant information about the nearest roadside assistance.

Purchase the upgrade and you will be given a unique unlock code. Enter the code* into your Magellan Maestro 4040 and let your voice put you in command

Magellan Maestro 3100 stuck on


If you followed the procedure closely, you now have an SD card with your backup on it. The backup consists of two folders: BACKUP, and USBTRANS. Insert the backup SD card in your PC's reader slot and open a "file explorer" aka "Windows Explorer", not to be confused with "Internet Explorer". You will use Windows Explorer to click and drag the USBRANS folder to the Maestro.

With the Maestro 3100 connected to the PC, a couple of Explorer folders will open and you can see the file structure for the GPS in 1, and in the other one a separate file structure for the blank SD card needed for the update. Look at the file structure for the GPS and you should see a handful of folders including "SYS".

  • Start the upgrade program, following the procedures.
  • Click the NEXT button at the bottom of the procedures screen.
  • Immediately copy the backed up USBTRANS folder (and all contents) to the SYS folder on the GPS.
  • The update should now find the Maestro 3100 and proceed with the update.

SUMMARY: copy USBTRANS (it should contain 1 file: UNIT.DAT)
  • from your BACKUP SD card (not the one in the Maestro)
  • to your Maestro 3100's SYS folder.
