Question about Magellan MAESTRO 3100 98083401 GPS Device

1 Answer

Shows position but will not programme a route.

Got Maestro 3100 Europe for Christmas. Unlocked Great Britain and Ireland maps, then paid 50 Euroes on Magellan website to receive code to unlock the rest of europe.
The unit now takes ages to go off the initial blue "warning" page and then goes straight to map. It actively tells you where you are but will not respond to any screen taps. No route can be programmed in and no other page can be opened. I have tried resetting several times. After a fraught trip to Europe, the unit is well charged.

Is there mapupdates maps for the Irish I have a nuvi 255


If Ireland does not come up on your unit, then the default is the only one you can get updated for free. You can buy Europe or NoAmerica+Europe map, but it is about $50 USD.

No map of ireland


Yes that model does have maps for Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland. As long as it's a newer model you are good to go (which it sounds like it is).

The easiest way to check would be to put in an address in Ireland as the destination. If it gives you an error saying not found then it's a safe bet that it does not include a map of Ireland, if it says impossible to navigate from here then you know it does see the destination, and knows that you can't possible get there by land from where you are.

Magellan Maestro 3100


hi mmeinzer

charge it up for a few hours, then take it outside and start your 3100, then get a paper clip and depress the reset on the left side near the bottom of your 3100 to reset it and let it restart, then wait for a while (could take up to 30 minutes after a reset) and let it acquire/lock on to the satellites. that should fix it, but if it doesnt, let me know and ill tell you what to do next.

let me know if you need more help or info

Magellan Maestro 3100 locks


You can try a hard reset. Hold in the reset button (left side of unit, use a pin or toothpick), while turning on the unit. If you don't get the blue Magellan screen, you'll have to try again. If you get a screen with a blue background and a menu, turn it off and try again.
So far, this has fixed:
1. unit won't go on
2. unit reboots when routing
3. unit turns off after a few seconds

At least, it's fixed it for me. No idea why this happens, but it's pretty damn annoying. Give it a try.
