Magellan 4040 download problem

After attempting to update my Magellan 4040 with the new firmware 2.36 I was told my problem was that I needed to format my new SD card before I could update. I did that and once again attempted to update my 4040 now my Magellan screen has nothing but the Logo and a full black bar across the bottom. When I try to download the firmware I do not get the SD problem anymore but it says MAESTRO 40X0 can not be found. I just don't known what to do next. I have attempted contacting Magellan but they don't even answer their phones let alone answer EMAIL they appear to have gone on vacation.

    I tried all the suggested fixes but still no results. Magellan finally contacted me and agreed it was there problem and the unit has been sent back to them for repair.

    Thanks for all your efforts

    I just experienced the same problem: after updating to v2.62 (v3.61) twice and restarted, all there is is a black progress bar. I do find that if I press the power on button while holding the reset pin, a boot menu comes up. But I don't know what to do with it.

    Same problem. Magellen 4040 will not download at all. Maps show up blank. Will try again, and then go buy a gramin.

hi mhildavidal

go HERE and download the latest firmware for your 4040
and follow the directions very carefully, especially the part where you either need a fully charged battery or have it plugged in to the charger while its updating.

My magellan position froze in Colorado and stays frozen.


try a hard reset. start the gps and using a paper clip insert it in the little pin hole on the side of your 4040 and take the gps outside in full view of the open sky and let it aquire the satellites, it may take up to 30 minutes it lock on to the satellites. if that fails, follow the link below to update the unit to the latest firmware for the 4040 you must register it on the magellan site before they will let you download anything.

Unable to download firmware update


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!
