Question about Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Receiver

Unable to download firmware update

Magellan 4040 firmware update not able to load asks for an SD card which I have and tells me to unplug my usb which I did and all it does is return each time to the same thing.

    I did format the SD card and it solved the SD problem but when I attempted to go further with the update it told that the MASESTRO 40X0 did not exist and my 4040 screen now has the Magellan logo and a black bar across the bottom.

    Magellan finally contacted me and agreed that the problem was at their end and and the unit is now in their hands for repair.

    Thanks

I had the similar problem. My SD Card was 2GB and this unit does not recognize it so I had to get 1GB and it worked fine.

I had the same problem, you need to format the SD card. BUT before you even do that, go under your settings and you'll see your current firmware version. I went through 30 minutes of messing around to find out I had 2.36 already!
