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.

Bricked my maestro 3100 tryign to do an upgrade. need recovery files. where can i find a free download? thanks


hi semorrison1

if you where trying to install the 2.18 update for the 3100, try running the update again if your
pc still sees your 3100. if it doesnt see it, it becomes alot more difficult to restore.



let me know if you need more help or info

if that fails, let me know and ill help you further

My Magellan Maestro 31100 won't power on


You could have a defective power connection in your Magellan Maestro 3100 which will not allow you to charge the internal battery or power on your unit.
You may try to contact Magellangps.com or Autonav2000.com to see if they can provide you with repair service.
Might be cheaper to purhcase another Magellan Maestro than spend the money on repairs.
Good Luck

Magellan maestro 3100 failed update


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.
